The 'Young' singer opens up about the abuse she has been victim to on social networking sites such as Twitter.
Tulisa Contostavlos has confessed that she feels like one of the "most hated women in Britain" due to the amount of abuse she gets on Twitter.
The 'Live It Up' star admitted that although she is subjected to a torrent of online insults, she's never faced similar comments in real life.
"If I was to base my opinion on Twitter I'd be like, 'Oh my god, I must be the most hated woman in Britain'," she revealed. "But I go around the street and despite all the abusive messages not one person comes up to me and says anything other than nice things and ask for a picture."
The N-Dubz star also told the Daily Mirror that she has warned her contestants on The X Factor to ignore any taunts from Twitter trolls.
"People just do it for the sake of it – they will sit down and write the most horrific, abusive messages and they couldn't care less," she added. "Sometimes they are 12-year-old kids sending these things. I've seen grown women read the messages and it brings tears to their eyes."
Earlier this summer, the 'Young' star publicly defended Cher Lloyd over an on-stage bottling incident calling the act a form of "adult bullying".
The singer was also involved in a war of words on the social site with Lord Sugar in recent months, after he questioned what credentials the MOBO award winning star had to judge on the music reality show.
Meanwhile, Tulisa is currently preparing to release her debut solo album 'The Female Boss' next month and recently told Capital that N-Dubz will be reuniting next year.
