The 'Young' singer tells Capitalfm.com that her forthcoming book will be "raw, honest" and full of "drama".
Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed that she is expecting there to be a "backlash" when she finally releases her autobiography next month.
The N-Dubz star admitted she wanted to put pen to paper on her life because there has been so much "media rubbish" written about her that she wants to set the record straight.
"I remember before I got famous I used to pick up these gossip mags and I used to find them intriguing and I used to believe what they were saying and I never once stopped to think how do they know this stuff? And the truth is 90% of the time they don't know, they're just making it up," she confessed to Capitalfm.com during an exclusive online webchat.
She continued: "People do read it and they do believe this stuff and I use feel like there's this whole image of me just put out to the public in a way people imagine me to be and it's just a million miles away from who I am.
"I don't mind being judged, I picked this career path for myself so ok, judge me, but judge me on the truth and if you really want the truth you're gonna get more gossip from my truth than you will in a gossip magazine that makes stuff up."
Asked as to what the book will contain, she added: "There's raw, honest truth, there's goss, there's drama, there's just my life basically in a nutshell."
The X Factor judge continued that she is not scared as to what people think of the content but expects to rustle a few feathers when the book hits shelves on 27th September.
"I'm not scared but I know there's going to be a backlash," she said. "There's going to be people like "oh my god, you were honest to the next level" but what do you expect if I'm going to do an autobiography."
