Tulisa Describes Fazer As ‘The Best Boyfriend’

She’s the new darling of X-Factor, but when it comes to her love life  Tulisa Contostavlosis extremely private.

Up until now, the 23-yea-old singer has vowed never to talk publically about her relationship with fellow N-Dubz bandmate Richard ‘Fazer’ Rawson, as she wants all the attention to be on their music and not on their romance. But in a interview with the Sunday Mirror, the X-Factor Judge describes Fazer as the ‘best boyfriend’ she could have.

Despite being coy in the chat and not directly naming Fazer, the Camden star gushed about her blossoming love, decribing him as her “rock”.

Tulisa admitted, “I’m really happy and have the best boyfriend – he’s really supportive in what I’m doing with the show [X Factor].

“He’s my rock, he’s been there for me throughout the past few months. I couldn’t be doing what I’m doing without him.”

The pair have reportedly been dating since May of 2010 and they sure do make a sweet couple.


Kelly Rowland Goes Topless In Sexy New Artwork!

Kelly Rowland released her new album Here I Am this past Tuesday and inside the LP’s booklet, the X-Factor judge is looking sexier than ever in her most daring photoshoot to date.

The 30-year-old singer goes topless – and even bottomless – in some snaps. But the pics all look tasteful and the former Destiny’s Child singer is not olny at the best stage in her life career-wise, she’s also looking her best too.

Go Kelendria. I look for forward to hearing the album.

Tulisa Gets Half Naked Hunk For Her 23rd Birthday!

Tulisa's birthday surprise on 'The X Factor'

Birthday girl Tulisa Contostavlos was given a topless hunk to cater to her every need and pose as her personal ”slave” during the Liverpool X-Factor auditions.

Fellow judges Gary BarlowLouis Walsh and Kelly Rowland gifted the N-Dubz star the unconventional gift for her 23rd birthday and by the looks of it, she seemed quite happy with her ‘present’.

Tulisa To Get £70,000 X-Factor Make Over?

Newly appointed X-Factor Judge Tulisa Contostavlos will reportedly receive a staggering £70,000 makeover ahead of the TV talent show’s return next month because ITV bosses fear the 22-year-old singer’s look is “too chavvy”.

The N-Dubz star has apparently been teamed up with celeb stylist Gemma Sheppard to help transform her style into a more sophisticated and demure look.

Former Destiny’s Child singer and fellow judge Kelly Rowland has reportedly been given a £40,000 style allowance.

A production source told The Sun:

“They put aside so much for Tulisa because you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. They want her to be the new nation’s sweetheart. She looked too chavvy and cheap on the first-day auditions so producers gave her a bigger budget for clothes and styling.

“They want her to have a designer look with chic class – more Posh Spice than Vicky Pollard in Little Britain, which was how she has looked more than a few times.”

According to the insiders, the move came when Tulisa turned up to the first audition show in Birmingham last month in less than flattering black jumpsuit. The source added: “We thought she’d turned up in her pyjamas. Something had to be done.”

I think Tulisa looks absolutely fabulous just the way she is. But hey, if someone’s giving you a free 70k makeover, take it and own it…

It’s Official: Tulisa & Kelly Rowland Confirmed As New X-Factor Judges!

After days of speculating whether Cheryl Cole will come back to the British X-Factor and if someone will be squeezed out to make way for the Girls Aloud star, the hoopla has finally been sorted, as ITV have officially confirmed that Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos will be judges on this year’s X-Factor.

The former Destiny’s Child star and N-Dubz singer will join Take That’s Gary Barlow and only remaining original judge Louis Walsh, on the British reality talent show, which starts filming this Wednesday.

Peter Fincham, ITV Director of Television, said the judges have the  ”experience right across the music business to pick the stars of the future.  As multi-million selling artists, songwriters and pop masterminds, Gary, Tulisa, Kelly and Louis have huge breadth of appeal with our audience.”

Well, a huge congrats to both Kelly and Tulisa. This year’s X-Factor is going to be VERY different, but change is good. American Idol lost Simon Cowell last year, and since replacing the sharp-tongued Brit with singers Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, the show is actually doing even better than before.

Tulisa Offered Half A Million For X-Factor Judging Role!

  • Fazer and Tula "Tulisa" Contostavlos - The Brit Awards - Inside Arrivals

Last week I revealed that Tulisa has been lined up to replace Dannii Minogue as a Judge on this year’s X-Factor. And now it’s being reported the N-Dubz singer is gearing up to sign a mega £500,000 deal to join the ITV talent show.

A friend of the 22-year-old star spoke with The Sun newspaper, telling the tabloid that Tulisa is very keen to ink the deal: “This is a dream come true for Tulisa. This will catapult her to a household name,” the friend explained. “She is being talked about as the new Cheryl.”

Take That star Gary Barlow is set to replace Simon Cowall and is being offered a staggering £1.5 million contract. Reports are also rife that former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland will take the final judging slot.

Wow, that’s a lot of change all at once. It’s going to be interesting to see how this new panel work. No Simon, Cheryl or  Dannii, means that there’s some BIG shoes to fill…

N-Dubz Tulisa To Replace Dannii Minogue as New X-Factor Judge

There’s been so much speculation over who will be on the judge’s panel on the new US X-Factor, that we’ve practically forgotten about the UK version. Now that it’s been confirmed that Simon Cowell will be joined by music exec L.A. Reid, singer Paula Abdul and Cheryl Cole on the upcoming American series, we can now turn our full attention over to the UK version.

So, who will replace Simon? Who will replace Cheryl? Well, the big question now is who will replace Dannii Minogue? The 39-year-old Aussie shocked everyone by announcing she has quit the talent show, to focus on her commitments as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.

Step forward Tulisa Contostavlos… It has been revealed the N-Dubz singer will be replacing Dannii in the new series. That explains why N-Dubz abruptly announced they were taking a break.


Dannii explained she will no longer be a part of the popular talent show, as auditions conflicted with her work schedule. The mum of two released the following statement:

 “I’m so disappointed that I can’t be a part of The X Factor this year. I’m going to miss the show.

‘During discussions for me to return it became clear that, unfortunately, the audition dates in the UK clash with my live shows of Australia’s Got Talent during June and July.”

2011’s X-Factor will now be fronted by Take That’s Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Tulisa and a yet-to-announced forth judge. That’s one hell of a  major reshuffle. Whether fans buy into the new line-up, only time will tell, but a big CONGRATULATIONS to Tulisa on the new role.

X-Factor’s Rebecca Ferguson Confesses Her Love For One Direction’s Zayn Malik!

Ever since it was revealed that Rebecca Ferguson and Zayn Malik were officially an item, their relationship has been under major scrutiny, mainly due to the age difference – she’s 24 and he’s 18 – and the fact she’s a mother of two. Simon Cowall has even reportedly told them to keep their romance under wraps, for fear it could jeopardise both of their careers.

Well, the X-Factor lovebirds are no longer hiding their blossoming love for one another and Rebecca has publically declared her love for the One Direction teen heartthrob, revealing the pair are “really in love”.

“We’re really in love… I want people to know that I’m happy, he’s happy and we’re in a loving, caring relationship,” The Liverpool lass explained to The News Of The World. “There’s only six years difference. I mean, Madonna does it and she gets a round of applause. It’s like, ‘Go on Madge! I’m going to be really honest… he was after me for months,” she recalled. “I was like, ‘No, you’re too young’. But he really wooed me and it was a long, long struggle before anything happened.

“[Zayn] is actually very mature. He’s quiet and really, really nice. I’ve got a career, I’ve got my own record deal and money, and I’ve got my own life. I’m not gaining anything from this. It’s genuine love.”


If the tables were turned and she was 18 and he was 24, we wouldn’t even bat an eyelid. But the fact of the matter is, this is the world we live in and there are people out there who are really gonna frown upon this relationship. But I think it’s great that they’re in love and happy and what not, but unfortunately, when you choose to be in the spotlight, certain choices you make will be heavily scrutinized and I guess that’s just something that comes with the territory of being a celebrity…

In case you missed it, check out the full cast of Glee performing live on last nights X-Factor. They sang live and sounded great. I gotta hand it to Lea Michelle Rachel, girl sounded GREAT! Puck looked HOT and Mercedes serenaded  Simon Cowell.

Over all it was a top class performance, Mr Schuester would have been so proud. Yep, you guessed it, I’m a total Gleek 🙂

Cheryl To Face Investigation Over Wagner Rant?

Cheryl Cole is allegedly facing an investigation into her outburst at The X Factor contestant, Wagner Carrilho, after she approached him live on TV over his “council estate” comment.

As we previously reported, the Girls Aloud star hit out at Wagner after his performance on Saturday’s live show, following comments the Brazilian crooner made regarding Chezza’s working class background.

Now, the Daily Star has reported that many angry viewers contacted Ofcom over Cole’s rant, accusing the Promise This singer of “trying to get Wagner axed.”

The tabloid also claimed that Chezza appeared to slate Carrilho on the Xtra Factor, hinting that the 54-year old has “an evil streak” that the public isn’t aware of.

She has also refused to apologise to Wagner for pulling him up on the show, claiming to pals that she “had to answer back”, despite the reported trouble she is now in.

This is not the first time Cheryl has faced an Ofcom investigation, after she sparked outrage by refusing to chose between her acts Katie Waissel and Treyc Cohen a few weeks ago, with rumours claiming she is even considering quitting the show.

Despite these reports, Wagner could allegedly win The X Factor after a voting leak on the internet claims that the out-of-tune singer is in the top half of the votes every week.

It is thought the general public are keeping in the contestant to infuriate boss Simon Cowell, who has made no secret of the fact that he is not a Wagner fan.

Meanwhile in other Wagner news, the Over-28’s hopeful has quashed reports that he was evicted from the XF contestants house, claiming that he “begged” to leave.

Carrilho told The Sun: “I begged to get out. It’s better for hygiene. The house is disgusting. I was putting weight on. I asked for a hotel with a swimming pool.”

When asked about his on-air spat with fellow finalist, Matt Cardle, Wagner stated: “I’m not going to slap every idiot that comes my way.” – MTV Newss!

Truthfully speaking it has been a really bad year on X-Factor for Cheryl. I haven’t been a fan of her judging choices this year (getting rid of Gumu and choosing not to vote between Katie and TreyC)  and I’ve been less than impressed with her fashion choices (sack the stylist Chezza). Oh don’t even get me started on the red hair extensions. But with that all said I am a big Cheryl fan and I believe she’ll come back stronger next year.
