What’s Next For Axe-Factor Tulisa?

Posted by: on May 27, 2013 | No Comments

Tulisa may be wishing to booze away her worries in Marbella this week, after splitting from footballer boyfriend Danny Simpson and facing the sack from The X Factor all in quick succession.

Looking like a typical shot-gun ‘Marbs’ getaway, bikini-clad Tulisa enjoyed champagne and cigarettes with best friend Chelsee Healey in a bid to put distance between herself and her X Factor departure, as announced on Tuesday.

One source told Telly Mix, “Being axed from The X Factor was gutting for Tulisa, but she knew it was coming after the backlash she received last year,”

In her two years on the show, Tulisa received unwanted attention for misdemeanours with ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards, a dodgy brunette-to-blonde-and-back-again transformation and accusing chart-topper Mischa B of being a bully.

North London singer Tulisa, this week sporting a ‘Lucky You’ tattoo on her bikini line, was said to have seen the move coming after “viewers just didn’t warm to her.”

In December last year, Tulisa‘s album reached number 35 in the Albums Chart, whilst girl band Little Mix (with whom she championed her 2011 win) reached number 3 with their debut album, DNA.

Little Mix have gone on to achieve US success working with legendary American rapper Missy Elliot and just last week bagged the cover of America’s leading teen magazine ‘Seventeen‘, all without their former mentor.

Hoping too to recruit the help on an American superstar, Tulisa promises new music in 2013 teasing  a ‘big announcement’ and rumoured collaboration with rapper Kanye West.

Meanwhile, former colleague Caroline Flack told Heat, “Tulisa should go on Strictly! Does she dance? She’d look beautiful in the dresses. I’m happy for Tulisa.”

Though Caroline did not mention the Strictly judging panel, we’re keen to know more about this big announcement!
