Tulisa Credits The X Factor For Solo Success
Former N-Dubz singer says she's 'grateful' to the talent show...
"I'm not saying my music wasn't good enough - I still believe 'Young' would have gone to number one - but the way that I have been blown out of proportion is fully down to The X Factor and I am grateful for that and I would never bite the hand that feeds you."
She went on to admit that she was over the moon to see this year's finalist sing Young for their group performance, stating: "That was like a reality check like “let me pinch myself for a sec.'
"Two years ago, I was watching The X Factor. Now I am on the panel watching people sing my song."
Tulisa added she still wants to help Ella pursue a career in the music industry, adding to the newspaper: "Ella really wants to pursue her career and spend the next few months in London. I said to her I want her to stay with me at my house whenever she’s in London.
"There’s more of a family environment, she’s only 16 and I don’t want her staying in hotels. She can stay with me at my house with me and Gareth [her PA]."
