Lily Allen: 'I Don't Want to Be a Celebrity'

Lily Allen is nothing if not a prolific blogger – but possibly not for much longer.

The singer, 22, has written on her MySpace blog about deeply personal topics, including her body image issues.

But in an angry screed posted on Thursday – titled "F--- Off, F--- Off" – Allen says her newfound celebrity is making her lose interest in her online journal.

She writes: "This used to be one of my favourite things to do. But the tabloid f---s have ruined it. Everything i write here gets twisted and rewritten by a bunch of lazy f---s who havent got anything better to write about."

She adds: "I don't want to be a celebrity, I am a singer."

In the post, she also denies online gossips' reports that, at her Tuesday concert at New York City's Roseland Ballroom, she took the stage two hours late, forgot the words to her songs and later partied with actor Josh Harnett.

Writes Allen: "I would never turn up two hours late for a gig ... EVER. id been in my dressing room since four o'clock that afternoon anyway its not as if id leave 3000 people out there for no reason." She adds: "this nonsense about josh hartnett is exactly that. nonsense."

In reality, she says, she's not interested in celebrity culture at all. "I don't sleep and take drugs with famous people (i have a boyfriend ive been with for nearly 3 years), I don't go to film premieres," she writes. "I don't go shopping in the paparazzi hotspots, so please leave me alone."
