Pop star Lily Allen has published a picture of a sick note from her doctor online to explain the cancellation of four European festival performances.

“I’ve got sinusitis and strep throat,” the singer wrote on her MySpace page. “I don’t even know what that is.”

The 22-year-old, whose hits include LDN and Smile, says she has been advised to take a couple of weeks off.

Allen reassured fans she would be fit for her appearance at the V Festival in the UK later this month. . .

“I’ve have literally been around the whole world in two weeks,” wrote the singer, “from London to Japan around Australia and then to LA and Vegas then back to LA for a 17-hour video shoot.

Apology

“Now I’m back in London eating my mum’s chicken soup cause I’m afraid the travelling has caught up with me.”

“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.”
