Lily Allen has opened up about her Glastonbury performance and how she had doubts whether she'd be able to get on stage sober again. Catch the performance here:
Allen joined Olivia Rodrigo on stage at the Somerset festival on Saturday, 25 June.
Allen was joined by her two children at the summer festival.
In a recent Instagram post she reflected: "Quite emosh. Things are truly messed up, but at least my babies got to see their mamma play and slay Glastonbury with their favourite pop star.
"They were very proud and so was I."
Allen continued by noting how she wasn't sure whether she'd ever be able to 'get up on a stage like that sober again'.
"If i’m honest, a part of me thought it was all in the past. I had the most amazing day. Thanks @oliviarodrigo for having us. You smashed your first Glastonbury.
"Who knows, maybe i won’t hang up my [microphone] just yet," the post teased.
Allen has previously performed at Glastonbury, having taken to the stage in 2007, 2009 and 2014.
However, in a since-deleted Instagram post from 2020, she reflected on a picture of her at the festival in 2014 having been taken 'before things really started to fall apart'.
"It’s hard for me to look at these but I feel like I’ve come so far since then and I am so much happier and healthier," she said.
Allen is now approaching three years sobriety.
In a since-deleted post last year, the star spoke out in celebration of her two year anniversary of being sober.
"2 years drug and alcohol free today! Getting clean is the BEST thing I ever did, and I’ve done a lot of cool s**t," she said.
As well as taking to the stage with Rodrigo, Allen has being doing a whole lot of other 'cool s**t' such as getting married to Stranger Things star David Harbour who has become stepfather to her two children.
Allen also took to the stage in the West End last year in 2:22 A Ghost Story.
The debut saw her receive a Laurence Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress.
