Leona Lewis: I don't care if people think I'm boring
Leona Lewis admits people see her as boring - but says she doesn't care.
Despite her successful musical career since winning The X Factor 2006, her interviews often seem lacklustre, with several journalists commenting on her bland answers.
This doesn't worry the diva, who says, 'I'd rather be seen as boring than a harsh, brash person.
'It doesn't bother me.'
That could all be about to change though, with a new image and style lined up by her management.
Promo shots for Leona's next single Collide - a collaboration with Swedish DJ Avicii - show her wearing neon outfits, and her new music has a hip-hop feel.
The 26-year-old, who split with boyfriend Lou Al-Chamaa in June 2010, insists it's a natural transition.
'I've come a long way since then and I've grown as a performer, as a singer, everything,' she tells Rollacoaster magazine.
'I was in that weird teenage-adult stage for a long time, making decisions that perhaps weren't right.
'But I've realised in the last couple of years that I have grown up and I know myself so much more.'
