"desperate for a poo", great, my image has totally changed
from music news
Lily Allen once performed live despite having chronic diarrhoea.
The 'It’s Not Fair’ singer’s worst on-stage experience was when she fell ill with a stomach bug during a show in the US.
However, Lily was so desperate not to disappoint fans she refused to go backstage and visit a bathroom until she had finished the full set.
She explained to Q magazine: 'The worst was being on stage in Seattle two years ago and I came down with diarrhea but I still went on. I was desperate for a poo the whole way through. At the end of the show I went to the toilet and it would not stop.
'The crowd were going, 'Lily! Lily!’, for an encore. I didn’t feel I could send anyone out and say, 'Will you lot shut up, she’s having a c**p’, but that was the truth.'
