Lily Allen has cancelled performances at a pair of continental festivals this week as she attempts to be healthy enough to play this coming weekend's V Festival.
The singer - pictured with doctor's note (read quote below) - will miss the Sagres Surf Festival in Portugal and Lowlands in Holland. She also missed the Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway - read our blog herehere.
A blog entry on her MySpace reads:
"I've have literally been around the whole world in two weeks from London to Japan around Australia and then to LA and Vegas then back to LA for a 17-hour video shoot, and now I'm back in London eating my mum's chicken soup 'cause I'm afraid the travelling has caught up with me. I've got sinusitis and strep throat (I don't even know what that is) and have been advised to take a couple of weeks off by a doctor in LA and a doctor here.
"Before anyone starts trying to accuse me of neglecting my fans I want to apologise and say how sorry I am, but I can't risk causing any permanent damage. I hope people can understand and aren't too angry."
Anyone going to V? No, us neither...
