Lily Allen: new name, new image

Date
Goodbye Lily Allen ... hello Lily Rose Cooper.

Goodbye Lily Allen ... hello Lily Rose Cooper.

Call her the artist formerly known as Lily Allen.

The 27-year-old British singer says she is changing her stage name to reflect her marriage to Sam Cooper - and she's working on new material.

A statement on Thursday from publicist Ambrosia Healey says the singer will now be known as Lily Rose Cooper, the name she already uses on her Twitter account.

She and Sam Cooper married last year, and the pair have a daughter.

Healey says the singer has booked time at a studio in Britain to work on new material.

Cooper, whose hits include Smile and The Fear, said in the statement she was "excited to be heading back into the studio".

    • I'll say, and what about new image? I didn't know getting married was an 'image' thing.

    • How about instead of her taking his name they make up a combined name and both take it. Like "Coolen" or "Alper"?

  • @NurseRoodaal -What sort of news are you expecting to read in the Life & Style - Celebrity section?? An article about the war in Syria?? When are celebrity news ever of any importance? If you're not interested, then don't read it and be surprised by the lack of substance and then complain about it. Simple as that.
