X FACTOR Judge Tulisa has said she was among the first people to read novel ‘50 shades of grey’, which has caused a storm on social networking sites.

The 24 year old singer said her make-up artist gave her the novel, as it would keep with her preferences in the bedroom.

Tulisa was speaking at Radio city live saying: “I was one of the first people to get on to the 50 shades hype. My make-up artist introduced me to the book because she knows, personally, I like dominating men. I think it’s because I am so dominating that I need a dominating guy”.

The former N-Dubz member, who had a sex tape leak earlier this year, continued: “My make-up artist knew about this book and said ‘Oh my God, you have to read it, this book was made for you’. I started reading it and just became obsessed”.

However the novel hasn’t had any immediate impact on her love life – she said: “It didn’t improve me love life but maybe my imagination”.
