The Young singer – who was the centre of a scandal when an X-rated video of her performing a sex act on ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards was released online last month – admits she is now more guarded than ever with the people in her life.

She said: “I’ve definitely changed my circle now. It’s a shame, yeah, because I have to be wary of who I talk to.”

X Factor judge Tulisa is putting the sex tape behind her and is completely focused on her career and in addition to singing she admits she would love to recreate photoshoots made famous by the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor when she was younger.

She added: “People have said that I look like her. I would love to re-enact photoshoots of Elizabeth Taylor back in the day.”

Tulisa originally found fame with band N-Dubz – in which she starred alongside cousin Dappy and ex-boyfriend Fazer – and she admits going solo was initially a nerve-wracking experience but she is now finding it much easier.

Speaking on ITV morning show Lorraine, she explained: “It’s very scary, but being solo is a lot more relaxing. I’m a lot more relaxed. There’s no Dappy or Fazer causing madness around me!”
