She says she is happy with the way her lips look.
Tulisa has finally admitted that she has had surgery on her face and says she would have happily talked about it before if she had been asked.
The former X Factor judge has said that of course she is aware that people are suggesting she has had cosmetic procedures.
Speaking to The Guardian in her first print interview since her court case collapsed last month Tulisa confessed to having lip and cheek fillers but maintains she has not had any work done to her nose.
“Look, the papers have always said I’ve denied it, but I haven’t given an interview in a year, so where have I had the chance to deny it? I just haven’t spoken about it,” she says.
“Yes, I’ve had my lips done, and I’m happy with my lips. And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks. Pictures of me where my face was swelling, I had water retention – where you have filler your face draws up a load of water. So my face began to swell like a balloon. And this is when people thought I’d had surgery and said, what’s she done? She’s ruined her face.”
“It was a choice I made. I’d lost a load of weight and I was looking at my face and felt…” She trails off. “It really bugs me when people say I’ve had a nose job. That’s just makeup. Can you see the shading there? So losing a stone, filler in my cheeks, my lips done and the contouring – and people do think, oh gosh, you look so different. But I’m happy with it.”
The 26-year-old says that her weight plummeted to just under 8 stone during the trial.
“Yeah. Luckily I’ve put on a bit, but during the trial there was one point when I was 7 stone 11. [She is 5ft 5in.] It’s not cute, is it? Not cute at all.”
