Tulisa Talks About 50 Cent's 'Crush' On Her
She hints that she'd be happy to go for dinner with hip-hop megastar...
Speaking to Bliss magazine, the former N-Dubz star was playing it cool on suggestions that Fiddy had a crush on her - but wasn't shutting the door on a possible romance either.
She said: "It was quite a shock. 50's someone I grew up listening to. He's a big star in my eyes so it was definitely very complimentary. How cool is that?
"I don't know if he was necessarily crushing on me – he said going for dinner, but he could mean that as a musician that he respects and wouldn't mind working with me. I'm really grateful after the year I've had that someone so big would speak out in the media and support me. But I'd definitely do dinner with him and I'd love to work with him!"
We're not sure whether working was what the US rapper had in mind when he made his comments about her a month ago.
For those of you who missed it, he told the Daily Star: "I'm going to be over in the UK later on again in the year and I would love to meet Tulisa for dinner.
"She had it tough and she has also been through some s**t recently as well. I love how she has handled that by flipping the bird to that guy who sold her out."
And Tulisa has already got the perfect destination in mind. Forget Nobu or Gordon Ramsay's place - she wants to take Fiddy to Nando's.
She said: "All Americans that I know seem to love Nando's because they don't have it, they can't wait every time they come over here!"
And she also broached the subject of whether she might get in touch with a celeb who had publicly expressed admiration for her.
"Yeah, I'd assume that's OK with him putting it out there," she said. "I'd then respond in the media saying, 'Yeah I think he's hot', and he'd then approach me. I suppose that's a way that people do get together, but as yet no one's reached out to me.
"It's hard for celebrities to hook up because they can't really go out. When I do, half the guys I meet are fans and just want a picture!"
