Tulisa has revealed that she planning to refocus on her dream of becoming an actress following a turbulent 2014.
Speaking exclusively to Yahoo Celebrity, the 26-year-old singer also admitted she is in a positive head space now that her woes are behind her.
“I’m in a good place this year,” she told us.
“Literally it feels like a rebirth. As soon as I fell into that swimming pool in ‘Living Without You’ I came back out a new woman!”
After leaving the X Factor at the end of 2012, Tulisa went on to pursue an acting career but was forced to put her plans on hold after falling victim to a tabloid sting. Now, however, she more determined that ever to continue chasing her dream of becoming an actress.
She explained: “Acting was something I went off to America to do before the drama. Now that I’m back to me again it is something I’m going to pick up again.
“Basically I’m going to go from where I left off which was in the middle of going to auditions – I will be going back out there again, picking back where I left off.”
The former N-Dubz star also credited Simon Cowell for giving her the opportunity to return to the X Factor several times last year.
“After everything that went on it just cemented the feeling of freedom and getting my life back, she said.
“I don’t think he could even imagine how much it meant to me. It worked so well to go back to where it all began. It felt very much like a good way to warm everyone into ‘Tulisa’s back’. It was the start of regaining my life again – I couldn’t have asked for more.”
And we’re more than happy to have you back, T!
