British pop star Lily Allen says her music comeback might only be temporary and she is likely to devote herself to motherhood and writing for others in the near future.
Allen, right, said she had found "a little pocket of time" to return to the music world but did not have any long-term plans for her own recording career.
She announced her intention to retire from the pop industry in 2009, going on to work on a fashion business and then concentrating on family life until she returned to music last year.
In an interview with Q magazine, she said she was unsure whether there would be anything after the album she was working on.
"When my kids start school I really want to be there," she said. "There was a little pocket of time I had to do this. One last hurrah and then I want to write musicals and songs for other people."
She has been working on a Bridget Jones production but said: "It's really good but it's not going to happen and I can't say why."
