Lily Allen Might Be Moving to America, Will She Bring Her Baggage?

Lily Allen hasn't had a hit UK single since 2014. No wonder she has decided to leave for the States and start a new life.

  • Lily Allen married American actor David Harbour earlier this month in Las Vegas and is rumored to be moving to New York with him.
  • As Lily’s UK career has declined in recent years, I feel a change of scenery would be refreshing.
  • The British public has commented online that they want the outspoken starlet gone.

Lily Allen recently married ‘Stranger Things’ actor David Harbour in the tackiest way possible. The pair got hitched by an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas and then chowed down at a burger joint after.

I believe the 35-year-old’s dwindling record sales and waning fanbase calls for a new start abroad. Now is the time for Lily to take on mature responsibilities as a wife and parent.

Most Brits seem hopeful that her stint in America is about to turn full-time.

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Lily Allen’s Music?

Lily Allen’s first album ‘Alright, Still’ featured her first mainstream single ‘Smile’ and sold 2.6 million copies worldwide. At first, Britain was charmed by a cheeky 21-year-old with an endearing voice.

Her second album ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’ received positive reviews and debuted at number one on the UK album charts.

Her third album ‘Sheezus’ had mixed reception from critics. And the low sales of her fourth album ‘No Shame’ reportedly caused her to be dropped from her music label Parlophone.

When Did Lily Lose Fans?

In December, Lily deleted her Twitter account due to backlash from her outspoken political views. She slandered Boris Johnson’s MP win and described the UK as a country where “racism and misogyny” run deep.

The ‘Not Fair’ singer was attacked for her messages, one person labeling her a “privilege denying-clown”:

And now the public has been unkind about her rumored new move. One person callously wrote that they’d “buy her ticket” for a “one-way” send-off:

Fingers Crossed That Lily Will Relocate… and Mature

Lily has two daughters, Marnie, 7, and Ethel, 8, with her ex-husband Sam Cooper. She split from the decorator and builder after five years, due to her confessed acts of infidelity.

I pray that the attention-seeking star will realize that feather-ruffling tweets and poor album sales must come to an end.

I hope she will finally focus on holding down a successful marriage and being an admirable role-model to her two daughters.
