Lily Allen Discusses Her Eating Disorder, Miscarriage On New Series


Pop singer Lily Allen has a roller-coaster of a personal life, and on her new television series, she’s been opening up about some of the darker moments in her past. On  the show Lily Allen: Riches to Rags, Allen talks about her bulimia, saying “I used to vomit after meals. It’s not something I’m proud of. But, I tell you what, a lot of people came up to me telling me how great I looked and I’d be on the cover of every magazine. I thought I looked good and it was great to be able to try on clothes and feel a million dollars. But I wasn’t happy, I really wasn’t. I would love to be the skinniest minniest person in the world but I can’t do that without being unhappy—I like food.”

Allen also talks about her very public miscarriage, which she suffered in October, 2010 as filming for her show was coming to a close. “It was a really long battle. I think that kind of thing changes a person,”Allen says after losing her baby six months into her pregnancy.

The rest of the series will focus on Allen and her sister Sarah as they open a clothing store in London. The first episode airs in Britain on Channel 4 on March 15.
