The 23-year-old N-Dubz singer is rapidly becoming a household name and is expecting negative coverage in the UK press to increase as her notoriety as an X Factor judge grows.
“I’m trying to be as tough as possible. I’m actually training myself,” she said. “The other day I went on some websites to find the worst comments possible about myself.
“I read every single one of them. I wanted to know how I’d feel seeing and hearing people that hate me saying the most horrible things.”
But look at her face. Is she bovvered?
“I just kinda laughed”, said tough-girl Tulisa.
One insider said: “Tulisa’s life has changed dramatically. She’s gone from being a trendy urban star to a major household name.
“It’s a big adjustment for someone her age and she wants to make sure she can handle the attention, good and bad. But Tulisa is already a tough girl. She can handle it.”
Tune in to see Tulisa and the rest of the judges in another X Factor double bill this weekend.
