(ANI): Singer Lily Allen has revealed the reason she dropped her
accounts on Facebook and Twitter, saying she wants to regain her
"real life". The 24-year old singer, who used to be one of the
music world's most prolific bloggers, said she renounced the
popular social networking sites to become a "neo-Luddite".
"I just had this revelation that Facebook, blogging, all those
things were becoming a total addiction," the Telegraph quoted her
as telling Grazia magazine. “I'd be with my boyfriend or my mum and
they''d have just got half of me."
"So I put my BlackBerry, my laptop, my iPod in a box and that's
the end. I won't use email, I play records on vinyl, I don't blog.
I've got more time, more privacy. We've ended up in this world of
unreal communications and I don''t want that. I want real life
back," she added.
