Taking to [Instagram], Lily explained how the incidents happened during “dark days” while touring for her third album Sheezus.
Lily’s Kanye West homaging third album Sheezus and an odd publicity campaign that “mostly consisted of her apologising for it” (nme.com, May 2014) having brought “dark days” to many after Lily “quit” music in 2009 but then having to “un-quit” after her fashion firm set up with her sister went bust (dailymail.co.uk, Nov. 2013).
Having finalised her divorce of her 5 year marriage to builder and decorator Sam Cooper whom she had previously admitted cheating on earlier this year it now being time to release a book telling all about it.
And it is from her book which the titillating lady-love extracts from her “lost and lonely” nadir have leaked, requiring her to both warn and pimp it simultaneously with a “heads up“ and letting all know it’s out on the 20th Sept. on the social media site with The Mail on Sunday running the leaked extracts today:
“Sooo, in my book ‘My Thoughts Exactly’ I detail some stuff from my dark days, around the Sheezus era.
“I slept with female escorts when I was on tour, cause I was lost and lonely and looking for something. I’m not proud, but I’m not ashamed.”
But despite No Shame (the new album name of course) feeling need to state that “I don’t do it anymore” and that regards any licking and scissoring “they’re bound to make it sound worse than it was”.

And just in case not enough has been made up to “make it sound worse than it was”:
“It is not like steamy, raunchy—although that is what the tabloids made it out like to be like. (A) sort of lesbian prostitute sex romp, which I guess it was, in a way.”
And living up to her album’s name and thanking the “person who leaked it” to make it “number one bestseller in rock as of today”:
The singer said she was actually pleased the details had been disclosed as the pre-sales for her book had drastically improved.

And just to clarify:
In a revealing new interview in the November issue of Cosmopolitan, the star insists that she isn’t even attracted to women, despite having had sex with them
Just in case anyone reading her reveal-all is not sure about that as she says she was not herself in what she describes as a “not-masturbating and not having the connection with anyone” period that resulted in her “looking in the wrong places” in the form a prostitutes snatch.
