At Jay-Z's request

Foul mouthed pop pixie Lily Allen is set to perform at the Wireless festival, after Jay-Z requested she be added to the bill.

Lily Allen has always had a troubled relationship with pop music. Not by nature a songwriter, the singer had in fact wanted to push forward her acting career before debut single 'Smile' became an enormous hit.

Now, however, the stress and strain of the music industry have become too much for her. Announcing that she was to take a break from music Lily Allen has unveiled plans to launch her own label.

In recent interviews Lily Allen has not ruled out a return to making music, although the singer is now concentrating on a variety of business ideas. However the singer has one final show to prepare for, after being added to the bill of London's Wireless festival.

Taking place in Hyde Park, it seems that another headliner demanded Lily Allen be there. One of the most powerful men in the music industry, rap heavyweight Jay-Z suggested that the London singer be added to the bill.

Wireless takes place between July 2nd - 4th.

Meanwhile, friction between Lily Allen and Courtney Love is gathering pace. The two are alleged to have clashed at the NME Awards, arguing over a Versace dress which both had wanted to wear.

Lily Allen has just posted on her Twitter page, labelling the grunge queen a "paranoid drug addled lunatic". This one could run and run...
