Leona Lewis: 'I'm not boring'

Leona Lewis has taken aim at critics of her personality, insisting she "couldn't care less" if they think she's dull.

The Bleeding Love star shot to fame as a shy and retiring wannabe on Simon Cowell's British show The X Factor in 2006, and went on to superstardom after winning the competition.

But Lewis is angry music fans presume she's boring just because she's not as outlandish as the likes of Lady Gaga, and she's adamant her strengths lie in good quality songs.

She says, "I don't care what anyone says. I'm not boring. Unless you know me, I don't really care about your opinions. I couldn't care less. Lady Gaga does her crazy thing and she is great. I definitely have something different to offer. I'm all about the music and songs."
