Frustrated with the music industry, British singer/songwriter Lily Allen says she would like to work with a hedge fund to get her product to the public.
"What I'd like to do is team up with a hedge funder and do it that way,” Allen told Rolling Stone magazine. “They could help me pay to get the record done, and I could just give it away and then go on tour."
Allen complained of interference from her record label, which prevented her releasing a favorite song from her new album “Sheezus” as a single and gave her grief about recording under her married name, Lily Cooper.
"I just want to have more control," she said. "I wish they would let me do it in my way."
