British singer Lily Allen is giving up music for a year or two to focus on other projects, telling BBC Newsbeat she’s turning her attentions to launching “a record label and running a rental clothes store.”
Allen said the label she’s planning to launch will focus on new acts. “I’m going to get into signing new bands, but at a really early level,” Allen explained. “I don’t want to compete with other record companies, but I want to support new artists.”
