Lily Allen Opens Up About Baby Issues

Things sadly haven't been the best for Lily Allen in the past year.

She lost a child six months into her pregnancy and has been keeping to herself, but in an upcoming interview she opens up a bit about that experience, and dealing with an eating disorder as well.

About the tragic loss of he child:

'It was a really long battle - and I think that kind of thing changes a person.'

It's so sad that it happened, we wouldn't wish that on anyone.

Here's what she had to say about struggling with an eating disorder:

"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. I'm a pop star, not a model. Don't make me feel s*** for not being really skinny and having an eating disorder.'

We can't imagine the pressure you've had in the spotlight, but we're glad to hear that you recognized you had an eating disorder, and hopefully you've been able to move on from it and be extremely healthy!

Things hopefully will get better, Lily! Our hearts go out to you!

Congrats on the engagement, and we hope the wedding is fab!!

    that's a good pic of her - she looks very pretty :)

    God, I just love this woman more and more. So strong and honest. Wish her all the best in the future, both career-wise and privately. And I really do hope she still continues to contribute to the music business, as she's a great talent. GO ON LILY:)

    Perez please you have been told in the comments section many times, that far into her pregnancy Lily had a stillbirth not a miscarriage.



  4. 4

    Losing a baby at 6 months is not a miscarriage.



  5. 5

    It was a stillborn, not a miscarriage.



  6. 6

    aww i love her



  7. 7

    Her FUCK YOU song/video is still on my top 5 play list. Brilliant!



  8. 8

    I've always thought that she was pretty. I hope that she finds happiness and has a bunch of kids. It's clearly what she wants out of life.

    uh..Perez? You gave her the eating disorder. Good that you are being nice now my you need to step up and make amends. You can't pretend your bullying past never existed.

    Oh, the pressure of being thin and a pop star!
    -
    What a load of horseshit.
    -
    Get in line girlfriend.
    Try what so many Americans are facing:
    -Their mortgage is much higher than the value of their house.
    -One or two job losses in the family.
    -Their college graduate children can't get jobs and are living at home with a $60,000 debt that can't be paid off.
    -Watching our President force Socialsim on us, encourages the unions to strike, while the stock market crashes.
    -And all this pales, to being a poor soul in the Middle East, being shot down by gunships while Obama plays golf.
    -
    Give me a break.
    All you have to do is put down the sausage rolls and quit drinking for awhile.

    remember Perez when you hated her and said nothing but terible things about her.



  12. 12

    i remember all the times you posted mean photos of her and made fun of her body. that was very cruel. you should be ashamed for doing that. I would apologize.

    HEY!! My comment was deleted!

    My comment was deleted! I mist have struck a nerve! Perez I commend you trying to be positive and a better person I really do BUT you need to own up to the slack you gave her a few years ago. You are "the media" that contributed to her eating disorder among other things. You need to own it and make amends! Then you can go on saying nice things about her now. It seems like you are trying to pretend your past does not exist. Man up Perez.



  15. 15

    WHATEVER ASSWHOLE!!! You have OPENLY complained about how much YOU DONT LIKE HER!!! So dont talk about how you feel bad for her, because during her ENTIRE pregnancy you published nothing but bad things about her!!

    My comment was deleted then brought back, then this was deleted… I must have struck a nerve! Perez I commend you trying to be positive and a better person I really do BUT you need to own up to the slack you gave her a few years ago. You are "the media" that contributed to her eating disorder among other things. You need to own it and make amends! Then you can go on saying nice things about her now.

    Re: luvs2tango – I really doubt that she cares what Americans are facing, given that she's British.



  18. 18

    Well, she certainly looks her best in that picture of her! Beautiful.



  19. 19

    Very sad, true, but isn't this like the 10th time she's "opened up" about this. For god sakes, let's move on.



  20. 20

    She is so pretty. Aint seen her in a minute.



  21. 21

    Losing a baby at 6 months is a stillbirth, not a miscarriage. At that point the baby could theoretically survive outside the womb.



  22. 22

    FUCK YOU, you boy loving hippo-crite.

    You bashed her relentlessly for years. you are so full of shit.



  23. 23

    Re: luvs2tango – GAWD, I love your comments……….

    Re: catlover – don't be such a bitch - allen is the one that wants to be a popstar and with that comes the scrutiny of image. she's not that good of a singer to be recognized solely for singing so yeah, she has a standard to uphold and should not complain or bitch about it. many people (american, british or anything between) would gladly give up their mortgages, debts and depression to live her lavish lifestyle she apparently doesn't appreciate.



  24. 24

    Love her and wish her the absolute best. I've always thought she was a beauty with a brilliant voice. She is always interesting even if I don't agree with her. Love this picture of her. She looks so delicate.



  25. 25

    she looks very beautiful in that image



  26. 26

    I know she doesn't care about Americans.
    It's too late for the British. Pity.



  27. 27

    Losing a baby at 6 months is not a miscarriage. It's a stillbirth. You don't go to the doctor and have a DNC and walk out. Don't get me wrong, someone who has a miscarriage experiences a great loss as well however with a stillbirth you have to deliver this child as if it were being born under the usual circumstances. The parents are responsible for burying or cremating their baby. The word miscarriage doesn't do the experience it's full justice. I should know. I lost a baby 4 days before she was due. It is the most life changing event anyone could ever experience. You're not the same when you have this kind of loss. I really wish people would educate themselves on the difference if they're going to talk about it. Not coming down on anyone, just trying to create awareness.



  28. 28

    Not all thin ppl have eating disorders and I've thought she was hot.



  29. 29

    Re: April 20th – Wasn't being a bitch. I was just stating that she could really care less about what goes on this country when she doesn't even live here. I don't see how that makes me a bitch, but ok. *shrug*

    i love lily, fan from the BX! but did she lose the baby because of her bulimia or is she just talking about her struggles with bulimia? im confused, i hope she gets better!



  31. 31

    Well that's what happens when you treat your body like shit. I bet she was still smoking when she was pregnant. Those warnings aren't on the side of the box for nothing dummy…



  32. 32

    Love her. Really hope she comes back to music years from now. It's Not Me, It's You was an amazing album. Would love to hear more from her. :(



  33. 33

    You bashed her mercilessly for years AND during her pregnancy, Perez. You should apologize. You can offer up general apologies to Hollywood as much as you want, but there were several specific people that you were intensely cruel to over the years (Lily, Jen Aniston, Vanessa Hudgens, Kristen Stewart, Christina Aguilera, etc.) and, in my opinion, I think you owe every one of them a personal apology.

    It may be too late for some people to accept, you may have burned your bridges already; you can only be cruel to a person for so long before they are done with you for good. But I believe you do owe it to several people who you may have hurt deeply over the years.



  34. 34

    i love lily. and perez you were one of the people calling her fat!
