Lily Allen Opens Up About Finding Happiness After Battle With Mental Health

Lily Allen shows off her pink hair on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK‘s November issue, on sale October 3rd.

Here’s what the 33-year-old musician had to share with the mag:

On how fame made her more self-conscious of her body: “I was gearing up to do promo for the second album. That’s when I started not eating, when I started thinking about having to do photo shoots and red carpets. When I was feeling really bad, everything that I ate would come back up. If I wasn’t, it would be just lunch or dinner. Part of me getting ready for a show would be to vomit for 20 minutes. Then I’d clean up my face and start doing my hair and make-up. I just felt really fat and grotesque.”

On how therapy helped her: “I love my therapist more than anything. I’m terrified of the day he’s going to die. I’ve actually asked him, ‘Do you have an apprentice? If you get hit by a car, does someone else just sit there? And are they up-to-date on what’s going on with me?’”

On whether she’s happy now: “Look, happiness for me is your first E at Glastonbury – that’s the happy place. I don’t think I’ve ever had that base level of happiness. What I see as being happy is that fake level of happiness because that’s what I’ve had from the spike in endorphins or whatever. But I’m in a happy relationship, my kids are thriving and I’m creating great music. I couldn’t really ask for much more. So, yeah, I’m in a good place.”

Lily Allen Recalls Traumatic & Heartbreaking Details of Son George's Stillborn Birth

Lily Allen is bravely opening up about the traumatic experience delivering her stillborn son, George, in 2010.

“I went into early labor and they put a stitch in my cervix to try and stop that from developing, and that lasted for the best part of a week,” Lily, now 33, recalled during an appearance on BBC Radio’s “4 Woman’s Hour” podcast.

“The stitch broke and I went into full-blown labor and the baby was really, really small. And as I was delivering him, the doctors said, ‘There was a pulse and now there no longer is.’ The cord was wrapped around his neck and he was just too small,” she continued. “I don’t think I did — I don’t think I ever will, really.”

“The hardest thing about that was losing a child, but there were complications with the actual delivery. He was so small he actually got stuck halfway in and halfway out, so to speak, during the delivery, and because his skin wasn’t fully formed they couldn’t [use] forceps [to] pull him out,” Lily added. “So there was a period of about 12 hours of lying there with him deceased in between my legs, which was incredibly [traumatic]. I went into trauma and I don’t think I’ll ever really recover from that.”

Lily and her partner at the time, Sam Cooper, had two daughters, Ethel, 6, and Marnie, 5. They split in 2015.

Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Once Staged an Intervention for Lily Allen

Lily Allen just revealed that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin once tried to stage an intervention for her.

In the 33-year-old singer’s new autobiography My Thoughts Exactly, she explained that the couple wanted to help her seek treatment for alcohol and drug addiction.

In the book, Lily says she was at Kate Hudson‘s 2014 Halloween party and after a night of drinking, knocked herself unconscious while dancing with Orlando Bloom.

Chris ended up escorting her home and leaving a note asking her to call him.

“He and Gwyneth had just broken up, but they were together in LA doing their conscious uncoupling thing. They asked me over for Sunday lunch. I wasn’t very chatty with Chris, but he and Gwyneth did put me in touch with their marriage counselor,” Lily wrote in the book.

Lily continued, “I didn’t go, but it was the wake-up call I needed. I realised I was ill.”

My Thoughts Exactly will be available on September 21st.
