Lily Allen pays tribute to husband during bizarre 'baby bottles' Glastonbury show

Pop star Lily Allen crowned her musical comeback with a bizarre performance at Britain's Glastonbury festival on Friday (27Jun14), singing while surrounded by giant baby bottles as her husband and children watched from the side of the stage.

The Smile hitmaker stepped out of the spotlight in 2010 to concentrate on starting a family with her husband Sam Cooper, and she relaunched her career this year (2014).

She showed off her quirky side at Glastonbury by taking to a stage adorned with enormous baby milk bottles as a nod to her new role as a mom as daughters Ethel, two, and Marnie, 17 months, watched from the wings.

Allen's romance with Cooper began at the festival in 2009, and she paid tribute to her husband during her set, turning to face him and saying, "Last time I played here was five years ago and that was the night I got together with my husband. Five years later he's here with my two beautiful babies. I love y'all so much."

The singer's shortened Friday night set was delayed by 30 minutes while festival organizers waited for a lightning storm to pass.

Taking to the Pyramid Stage, she said, "Thank f**k for that, the rain stopped! Just in time. I've got to be quick 'cos our set time has been cut short."
