Lily Allen Bans Internet from her Home

Lily Allen is a famous singer, actress and TV presenter whose 13 singles remained in the UK top 20 charts. She performed Tuesday on BBC's Radio One Live Lounge.   

The 29-year-old mother of two told Fearne Cotton before her Live Lounge performance that she has banned internet from her home because of her daughters.

Lily Allen has two little daughters who are below three years of age. And she does not like it that her daughters should grow up in a social media environment. 

"Internet is banned in our house," said Allen, adding "I'm just trying to say as much stuff as possibly I can. So when my kids are old enough to Google, all the bad things have got so far back in the internet they're on page 7,465,000."

She sang URL Badman and a cover of Raleigh Ritchie's Stronger than Ever during her performance on Radio One Live Lounge. Lily Allen sang many hit songs and three of her numbers remained at the top of the UK top 20 charts. 

Her recent shows include sets at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Glasgow and on the Pyramid stage at the Glastonbury Festival."That was good," Allen said while describing the show. "It was a bit stressful though because they cut my set. They said, 'There's lightning on stage'.

"I think we were taken from 55 minutes to 45 minutes so it was about two or three songs. But it was great, I had such a good time, I beyond enjoyed myself. I felt like I haven't felt for a long time on that stage."

All three of Lily Allen's UK albums including her 2006 debut Alright, still remain on top of the charts. Her third album, Sheezus topped the Official Album Chart upon release in May.

Sheezus is actually a follow-up album to her 2009 album, “It's Not Me. It's You”. And she has always tried to balance her family life with her professional life "probably in the same way all other working mums manage it". That is why, she will go abroad alone for the upcoming shows. 

"I'm not going to take them to Australia," said Allen said. "I'm only there for seven days and they're both under three so that would be a bit mean.

"But they are going to meet me in New York and then come on the bus with me and Miley, well I don't think Miley will be on my bus, she's probably got other plans."

Lily Allen also feels that it is "probably a lot easier" for her to balance her family and professional life because she has "got a bit of money and nannies" and her job is "really fun." She says that she is "very happy, very lucky."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
