EXCLUSIVE | He thinks Tulisa is better than Chezza on X Factor...
Example has exclusively told Cheryl Cole to be a judge onN-Dubz star taking [uuid=a38b271d-ead1-43f8-bef1-a7918ea082f0]Girls Aloudbeauty, Example admitted: "Totally. Tulisa's been around for years with N-Dubz."
"N-Dubz are like marmite for some people, obviously they've got loads of fans and some people who don't like them, but I think they are brilliant songwriters and I like the fact they produce and write the stuff themselves - that gives them integrity straight away, whether people like the music or not."
He continued: "Tulisa's worked up from the bottom against all the odds, from the underground to selling millions of records and sold out arena tours. She's a hundred times more qualified than Cheryl Cole."
Responding to the positive response Tulisa has received since replacing Chezza on The X Factor panel, the Kickstarts hitmaker added: "She's got good feedback because she didn't make it through a talent show and for just being pretty. She can actually sing."
Ouch! As for whether he would consider joining Contostavlos as a mentor at the Judges' Houses stage of the competiton, Example claimed: "It's probably best I never go on that show because I will start getting death threats. I would probably get kicked off. I can't stand it."
He added: "I know I'm not a very good singer, I probably wouldn't have even made it through the first round of X Factor but I write my own songs and I'm a business man - that's why I'm here."
