It hasn’t exactly been an easy year for Tulisa, so it’s no surprise that she’s taking her comeback and image overhaul super seriously.
So serious, in fact, that she’s taken a leaf out of old school Paris Hilton‘s book and gone all designer-swimsuit-and-heels on us in her Living Without You video.
Throwing on an oversized black hat and sunglasses – circa paris Hilton ’04 – the 26-year-old struts her stuff in a pair of leopard print heels and an inappropriate-for-swimming jewelled swimsuit, keeping her Moschino cup bag – which Paris also owns – close to her side in every snap.
Having apparently found herself a grizzly-looking man to use as her chair and show her some leg stretches, Tulisa definitely looks back to her usual sultry self in the series of first-look pics from the set.
T’s comeback single is set for release on December 7th after it was prematurely leaked online last week, which she says left her fuming – until she realised the response was positive.
She told OK.co.uk: “I was very upset at first. But, as you can imagine, when I saw the response I was relieved and thought: ‘OK, maybe it’s not that bad, I can’t complain!’.”
The former X Factor judge was rrecently rumoured to be part of the line up for this year’s I’m A Celebrity, before denying the rumours on Radio 1.
She told Grimmy: “Those rumours come up every year. I’m a musician, I’ve done TV but I’ve never really been a reality TV star and it’s not the route I want to go down, when I do TV I want it to be connected to music.
“I wouldn’t last five minutes on the show, I can’t even handle a spider in my bath. I’m scared of the dark and I’ve got ultimate epic bug phobia.”
Tulisa also admitted that after a turbulent past year – where she successfully fought charges against her – she’s now feeling stronger than ever.
She admitted: “If anything it’s really brought my fire back, and my love for the music. It’s just been crazy but I’m in such a good place. It’s about turning negatives into positives and I’m back.”
TFB is BACK.
