Lily Allen, Motherhood and Rock Fests

Nope.  Lily will not take her children to music festivls despite being a regular at many rock shows in her childhood. 

'When you have kids you do look at your parents and think, 'Would I bring up my child the same way?', and the answer is, not necessarily,' she told British newspaper The Sun. 'I was taken to the Glastonbury Festival every year but I won't be taking Ethel there – although that's more for selfish reasons, because I want to go and enjoy myself!'

Lily says she had no regrets in being outspoken but has 'mellowed' since becoming a mother.

'When I first started out in my career, I made quite a lot of controversial statements… I'd say that motherhood has mellowed me along with just age, growing up and having more responsibility,' she explained. 'I don't regret anything I've ever said because it's all part of growing up and I believed it at the time..

'I don't think you should ever feel bad about having strong opinions at any particular time.

And certainly, if something's worth banging on about, I will still do it!'

As a mother myself I can tell you there are events I would have had no problem taking the youngun too and some that I wouldnt have brought her to with a gun to my head.  Depends on the crowd, the venue and the vibe.  The kids first concert was a rock fest featuring ska band The Specials, perfect music for a 2 year old to bop around to but an Anthrax show? No way.
