Ever since her fame rocketed after appearing on the X Factor last year, Tulisa has been trying her hardest to remind people that she’s still that outspoken N Dubz chick from Camden. And now she’s even claiming that her loud and lairy attitude could be used as inspiration for ‘Broken Britain’.
In an interview with Look Magazine, she explained that she has no plans to change her behaviour now she is considered a role model:
People say, ‘Oh my God, you’re a role model now – you have to inspire young people’. Why am I a role model? Because I’ve been myself. People are underestimating the kids of today – they’re not stupid.
I’m not an inspiration for upper-class kids whose parents don’t want them listening to an Eminem album. I’m an inspiration for Broken Britain.
The 24-year-old also said that although her chavtastic style gets a fair amount of criticism, people need to accept that the tracksuits are staying firmly put in her wardrobe:
I like to dress up, look glam and do shoots like this. I’m always going to be a hood chick. I like street clothes. I’m comfortable in my skin, it just p**ses me off that other people won’t accept it.
You can see from the curves that I’m not working out – it’s just jelly! I swear on my mum’s life, I’ve never done a day’s exercise.
We get it. You don’t care what people think of you. Now please can you start saying something different in your interviews?
It’s only a matter of time before she releases a track called Tulisa From The Block.
