Lily Allen too famous to buy condoms

entertainment Updated: Feb 07, 2009 18:11 IST

The Fear singer says fame prevents her from doing “regular daily stuff”, like buying contraception, without causing a fuss.

She said: “People say you pay the price of fame. There are some things I just can’t do anymore. Like when I’ve had sex, I can’t go to the sexual health clinic. I can’t go to a shop to get condoms - just regular daily stuff that’s gotten difficult.”

Meanwhile, Lily - who admits she has a penchant for older men and wants to have sex with Lucian Freud - has revealed she accidentally propositioned music mogul Simon Cowell, 49, via text message.

When her brief relationship with art dealer Jay Jopling, 45, ended, the currently single singer contacted The X-Factor judge by mistake.

She said: “Over Christmas, I was kind of seeing this guy and then it was over. So I texted my godmother and told her. As a joke I said, ‘Maybe my next conquest should be Simon Cowell.’ But you know that thing where when someone is in your mind you accidentally text them? So I texted him that. He replied, ‘Sorry?’ ”
