Seems Lily Allen didn't waste any time getting to the altar.

On Tuesday — just two weeks after news broke that she was engaged to her business owner beau Sam Cooper, 32 — the British singer, 25, posted a picture of her freshly manicured left hand on her blog.

Adorning her fourth finger? Her engagement sparkler, plus what appears to be a wedding ring.

Although Allen remained coy about possible nuptials — writing only, "A girl can't do Manhattan sans manicure" — pals say she and Cooper are a perfect match.

Says the insider of the duo, who suffered a tragedy in November when a six-months pregnant Allen had a miscarriage, "Their painful loss only brought them closer together."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
