The R&B star also says he would love to work with Tulisa after touring with her next month.

Ne-Yo has revealed he has crushes on both Cheryl Cole and Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson, while admitting that he is looking forward to get to know Tulisa Contostavlos while out on tour.

The 'Let Me Love You' singer kicks off his UK arena tour next month, with 'Young' singer Tulisa as his support act, and says he has heard "good things" about The X Factor UK judge.

"I've only met her once briefly," Ne-Yo revealed to The Sun. "I've heard good things, but we're not especially close. 

"In the course of the tour, I'm definitely planning on getting to know her a bit better and hopefully working with her."

The 'Beautiful Monster' singer went on to name The Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson as one of his top celebrity crushes, as well as Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole.

"There's a couple of women in the business that could get it," Ne-Yo joked. "I'm a huge Scarlett Johansson fan, that's one sexy white woman. 

"Cheryl Cole too - she's very sexy," he added.
