Singer Lily Allen says she wants to retire at 25 and live on a farm. That implies that she makes it until that date. She was diagnosed with a heart murmur about three months ago, Allen revealed in an interview.
The British singer, 22 â€" who dropped from a UK size 12 to a size eight in six weeks â€" says her sudden weight loss stems from exercise following the health scare, not from hypnosis or because she wanted to be "some skinny minnie."
"I love nothing more than sitting in front of the telly with two packets of Ginger Nuts and two bags of milk-bottle sweets â€" and I devour the lot," she said.
Lily Allen has been a frequent, vocal critic of many young stars - the Nicole Richie types - for being anorexic, and for having no redeeming qualities, basically.
She has also said she is a bigger mess than Amy Winehouse, although she might want to rethink that after a string of recent events with Blake Fielder-Civil.
Although she's put boozing on the back burner, Lily Allen admitted, "I should probablyÂ also give up smoking, but haven't quite managed that yet."
Yeah, that wouldn't hurt. A heart murmur is often harmless but can also indicate a hole in the heart or a heart valve problem. Four out of five experts believe it is slightly less harmful than Britney Spears' lack of sanity.
