Lily Allen: Better Songwriting Through Celibacy

Lily Allen: Better Songwriting Through Celibacy-photo

Lily Allen is truly willing to suffer for the sake of her art.

The 23-year-old "Fear" singer tells British newspaper the Sun that she's taking a vow of celibacy in hopes of improving her songwriting skills.

"It's good to get out of your comfort zone and test yourself," Allen says. "I'm just going to see how it goes for a bit. I haven't set a time limit or anything."

And apparently, it's a method she's employed in the past. In fact, the currently single songbird—who's dated the Chemical Brothers' Ed Simons and art dealer Jay Joplin—admits that she's split up with guys for the express purpose of getting the creative juices flowing.

"I've actually broken up with boyfriends for inspiration. When I hit a period of not being able to write music, I get up and I walk away," Allen fesses up. "It's pretty mean—but it's true."

Sounds like Lily Allen isn't the only person who's suffered for her art.

    It's very easy to believe, that since Lily Allen has at least tried to keep her romantic life a personal matter, that going to Sun U.K. would be the last thing she would do. She hasn't told them anything in the past three years. They have a reputation for printing anything that pop's into ''THEIR" heads, and celibacy was never mentioned by Lily Allen. If something important, or even not so important comes up she will let people know via-Twitter.
