Alexandra Burke: ‘I’m a party girl’


Former X Factor winner, Alexandra Burke, has claimed that she is a bit of a wild child, party girl and that fans will see the real her when she takes to the stage.

Burke told The Daily Mail that she was inhibited whilst appearing on the show, in case people thought she was weird.

Burke said: “When I was on the show I could only show my personality to a certain extent. I didn’t want people to think I was weird! But now I’m letting rip.

“The fact is I’m a loud, bubbly person, and a bit of a party girl. But it was hard to portray being a party girl on the show. Now I can be free. When I perform I call myself ‘The Beast’ – I’m a monster! They’re going to see me go wild on stage.”

On the rumours that Simon Cowell controls your life after you sign with his record company, Alex added: “It’s been the complete opposite for me. When they first asked me what I wanted to do with my career, musically, I said, ‘Right, guys, I need a week to just live, eat, breathe, study music’.

“So they sent me away to Mauritius, and I listened to everything from AC/DC to Rod Stewart, thinking, where should I go? My voice will give it soul but the music is pop.

“If somebody tells me what to do and I don’t believe in it, I’ll do the opposite. Syco said, ‘Can you not get another tattoo please?’ and I went and got it. They’ve learnt that about me.”
