London (ANI): English singer Lily Allen has revealed that she will quit her pop music career if her second album does not do well, and will take up a career in A&R (Artists and Repertoire), just like music mogul Simon Cowell. Allen has gone so far as to plan a new career as a talent scout and artist developer if her follow-up to 'Alright, Still' crashes.
"I'm really scared about what people are going to say. I don't know why. Some people will like it and some won't. If people hate it, then I'll just try something else," the Sun quoted her as saying. "I'd really like to do A&R at a record company. I love going to gigs," she stated. The Smile singer is at the moment feeling pretty low and insecure about herself and thinks that she has caused her incredible pop success to go down.
"I feel like I got away with something. I left school at 15. I'm not a genius songwriter. I don't think I'm really good at anything," she told Rolling Stone magazine. Her feeling down seems to have influenced the title for her new album, which she's finishing in Los Angeles, and is planning on calling as 'Stuck On The Naughty Step'. "I feel like I'm stuck in a hole where people say, 'Lily, you're bad. Go think about what you've done'," she added.
