Tulisa: ‘I Had Too Many Boys Too Soon’
X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been opening up about her past in the upcoming autobiography ‘Honest: My Story So Far’. In the surprisingly candid book, Tulisa made the revelation that she lost her virginity at age 14 and regrets losing her ‘innocence so early’…
The ‘Young’ singer has published extracts of the memoir in The Sun newspaper, with exclusive details of her pre-fame past laid bare. The 24-year old revealed: "I had too many boys too soon. I regret losing my innocence so early.
“I can still count on my fingers and toes the number of guys I've slept with. A good percentage of those encounters happened between the ages of 14 and 17 and that felt like a lot, even at the time.”
The singer, who famously dated bandmate Fazer, justifies her actions by stating that she was swept away with the idea of a ‘fairytale romance’, saying: “despite my street-girl persona, I was totally into the idea of fairytale romance. I wore my heart on my sleeve and I was ready to give my all if I thought I was going to get love in return.
"Of course, it wasn’t the right way to go about things, because any attention and affection I got from those men was usually only temporary, but it took me a while to learn that lesson."
Tulisa’s book will hit the shelves on September 27.
