We know Tulisa Contostavlos is quite often frank with her remarks, we still can't forget the 23-year-old telling us about her "sensitive m****e" previously, and this week her confessions continue. Speaking to Style magazine, the N-Dubz star admits she was lucky to lose her virginity at 14.
Talking about her teenager years and growing up in London, Tulisa told the magazine this week: "I was 12, I wanted to have fun. I didn’t want to go back to a one-bedroom council flat, crying myself to sleep at night.
“But it was naughty, people were smoking [cannabis] on their lunch break. I was one of the lucky ones to keep my virginity as long as I did. There were kids s**gging in the toilets at the age of 12 in the break time."
She added: “When did I lose my virginity? I can’t say too long, I was about to turn 15. It’s the environment we’re from, it becomes normal.”
And the singer made no secret of her troubled upbringing, which included shop lifting, smoking weed and underage drinking.
“My way of getting out of it was getting in with this really hard crowd – the hardest of the hard in the area. We were a wild bunch of girls but I was content being protected," The X Factor newbie explained.
She continued: "I smoked weed when I was a kid and got into fights. We did pinch a couple of handbags. I wasn’t part of a girl gang, though. We were just a group of troublesome chicks. Obviously, we were consuming so much weed and alcohol, we were going loopy anyway."
