The British singer has decided to take a behind-the-scenes role in music industry and wants the "Poker Face" hitmaker to record some of the songs penned by her.
Lily Allen

has vowed to carry on penning songs after winning three prestigious Ivor Novello awards on Thursday, May 20 - and she wants to record the tracks. The "Smile" hitmaker announced earlier this year she plans to quit recording and performing live after a string of summer festival dates.

But after she scooped three songwriting trophies at the Ivor Novello ceremony she's decided to carry on in the music industry - but in a behind-the-scenes role. Allen tells Britain's The Sun, "I didn't realize I was an exceptional songwriter. I still just kind of think my songs are like nursery rhymes - little ditties that I write for myself. I am overwhelmed."

"I'm still writing songs all the time and I won't be writing just for myself anymore. I want to write for Lady Gaga."
