Lily Allen told a British radio show this morning that she was planning on quitting music for two years to start a fashion boutique. The singer already designed a collection for New Look and did a jewelry line, and her new plan is to work with her sister and open a shop called Lucy in Disguise. It sounds like a brick-and-mortar version of Rent the Runway, where people will be able to come in, browse designer clothes, and then rent them for a bit. Allen says she won't be quitting music completely, though, and that she plans to start her own record label. What do you think of her plans? [ElleUK]
