The N-Dubz star takes to Twitter after being criticised over Los Angeles holiday photos.

Tulisa Contostavlos has been pictured with a seemingly sun burnt face as she stepped out in Los Angeles recently.

The N-Dubz star is currently in California putting the finishing touches on her debut solo album.

The X Factor judge took to her Twitter account earlier today (7th February) to respond to comments that she had spent too much time in the sun.

She tweeted: "Y r people tweetin me sayin I'm sun burnt?I get weird heat rashes,get em every month or so,makes me bright red 4 about 3 hours lol."

The star was also sporting an elegant checkered dress tied in the middle with a thin black belt.

Meanwhile, the star confirmed recently that she will be releasing her autobiography and has also agreed to pen two novels.
