Lorna Simpson In The X Factor Fix Claims
First live shows reject alleges that contest was rigged against her...
Sharon Osbourne to sing Whitney Houston songs, she feels this may have contributed to her early exit.
"I thank X Factor for the opportunity but I don't want people to think all I can do is Whitney Houston songs.
"I love Whitney but all the songs I've sung have been Whitney. I wanted to do something different.
"I entered to get popularity. I wanted to show the world who I am. But with me, fans were like, 'Who is that?' I was downplayed. I didn't get to show who I really was.
"Even my image was completely changed. Maybe I was a threat. They set me up for those (judges') comments and it wasn't right. I never chose to be like that."
And she insisted that she would have connected better with the public if she'd been allowed to be herself.
"I'm sorry but I was born sexy! I had some middle-aged woman's wardrobe. I'm 26! Why are you trying to hide me? You've hidden me enough.
"I had these four sexy guys dancing with their abs out in my routine but I just didn't feel sexy.
"My friends have a pet name for me — Luscious. I live up to that. Women love me, men love me and it's because I have a story and a personality."
