Tulisa actually writes her own autobiography

By | Published on Wednesday 3 December 2014


Tulisa Contostavlos has talked a bit about her forthcoming autobiography ‘My Year Of Enlightenment’, which she is ‘in talks’ to release at some point in 2015. The “tell all book” will, the one-time N-Dubz star says, chart what hasn’t been an ideal period for her by any means, heavily reported-on ‘Fake Sheikh cocaine sting’ considered.

Now officially cleared of charges relating to said sting, and back with a new single in ‘Living Without You’, Contostavlos has said via The Mirror’s 3AM page that ‘My Year Of Enlightenment’ will be written entirely by herself, ie with no ghost writers, in a “novel style… every moment written as it happened”.

“Think Carrie Bradshaw on a drugs charge”, she tells 3AM (somewhat sensationalising what she’s said in the past was an extremely bleak time in her life), adding: “There will be sceptics out there who’ll say, ‘She can’t write a book, she hasn’t even done her GCSEs’, but I’ve got a genuine story to tell. I admit to things I’d never normally admit to. You read about me with a bottle of vodka on a Christmas Day in a darkened room, having crazy nights out with friends and the moment that I am found innocent. I’ve kept it juicy. I’ve cut out all the shit”.

As previously reported, Tulisa hinted to the BBC’s ‘Panorama’ last month that she is considering taking the so-called ‘Fake Sheikh’, aka disgraced/on-hiatus Sun On Sunday reporter Mazher Mahmood, to court over his alleged entrapment of her in the cocaine-dealing scandal. Mahmood has been suspended by The Sun pending an internal investigation, and may yet be charged in relation to the Tulisa trial over claims that he lied and tampered with evidence in order to incriminate her.
