The 25-year old said that she was pleased with the flattering comments as number of friends and critics praised her slim looks on a number of fashion magazines. Allen admitted that she wanted to lose more weight and revealed that during the summer of 2009 she suffered from bulimia and vomited as soon as she ate any food.

"It was great to try on clothes and walk out of the shop feeling a million dollars. When you have been a victim of people saying the complete opposite, you want more of it. But I wasn't happy, I really wasn't. I would like to be the skinniest, mini-est person in the world, but I know I can't do that without being unhappy. I like my food", she said.

Allen also said that one of the major reasons for her to retire early from the music industry was because she wanted to avoid the traps that almost all singers fall into. "People who are famous and successful and live in this mad world tend to die really early, or kill themselves, or die in a drugs overdoes. No offence but that is not what drives me", she added.
