Washington, (ANI): Lily Allen has revealed that she quit using the Internet because she had become addicted to searching negative comments about her. The 'Smile' singer insists that the Internet can be destructive.
"I don''t own a BlackBerry. Or a computer. I don''t even read emails," Contactmusic quoted her as saying. I was using the Internet in a really destructive way. In the same way as I guess alcoholics and drug addicts have to stop taking drugs or alcohol to see how negatively it affects them."
"I had to stop using the Internet completely. If I was feeling bad, I''d look for negative things people were writing about me to substantiate how I was feeling: ''Look, I am fat and ugly,''" she added. Earlier, Allen used to be a frequent user of social networking websites Twitter.com and MySpace
