Tulisa Contostavlos hates shattering dreams
Tulisa Contostavlos finds it hard to tell 'X Factor' contestants they are rubbish if they believe they have talent but has no problem turning down "idiot" hopefuls
Tulisa Contostavlos finds it hard to tell 'X Factor' contestants they are rubbish if they believe they have talent.
The N-Dubz star has no problem telling "rude" or "idiot" hopefuls they won't progress through the competition but finds it "horrible" to shatter people's illusions about themselves.
She said: "It's easier to tell the idiots, in the sense of the rude people, that they're bad, because I don't care. And I don't care if they're abusive either. What's horrible is when someone believes they are a star, and they have no vocal ability whatsoever."
The 23-year-old singer - who mentored last year's winning 'X Factor' act Little Mix in her debut series on the show - admitted she was "s**tting" herself the first time she judged an audition in front of 4,000 people, and she worried that the audience members and contestants thought she was a "t**t".
She added to The Guardian newspaper: "I was s**tting myself. Oh my God, the first time I walked out, and there's 4,000 people behind you, and every time you try to make a decision, they don't know me, I'm the new judge, replacing their nation's sweetheart, Cheryl Cole... So I had auditions where people behind me were going 'Boo!', and I'm sitting there with 4,000 people basically telling me I'm a t**t, trying to judge someone on stage who probably also thinks I'm a t**t."
