Lily Allen sings on stage

Lily Allen is changing her stage name to Lily Rose Cooper.

The singer says she wants to use her husband's surname when she's working on new music.

The 27-year-old, who's had four top 10 hits and a number one album, hasn't set a release date for any new songs. She married Sam Cooper in 2011.

She's not the first pop star to change names; Cheryl Cole swapped to Cheryl, Katy Hudson switched to Katy Perry and Lizzie Grant changed to Lana Del Rey.
