Tulisa Contostavlos: I’ll never be Cheryl Cole
Tulisa Contostavlos will “never be” Cheryl Cole.The ‘X Factor’ judge – who recently stepped into the shoes of the singer on the ITV1 show’s judging panel – admitted while she is “nervous” about her new role, she will never try to replace Cheryl or fellow former panellist Dannii Minogue.She said: “I’m really nervous. I’ve had so many mixed emotions this week. I feel pressure – but I don’t feel like I’m stepping into anyone else’s shoes because I could never be Cheryl or Dannii.”And I feel like I’ve earned by spot on the judging panel. I’m involved in writing, producing and singing, so it’s not like I’ve just had a couple of lucky hits and that’s it.”However, if Tulisa wasn’t a member of chart-toppers N-Dubz, she would be prepared to audition for the talent show in the hope of getting her big break.She added to heat magazine: “If I wasn’t in N-Dubz right now, I would audition for ‘The X Factor’. I’ve always loved the show. It gives people who are diamonds in the rough a great chance of exposure.”I stand for being yourself – do not get fooled by this gassed-up industry, because in truth it’s actually complete bs. I will not pretend that I like everyone and that everything’s la-de-dah, because that’s a load of shit.
