Sometimes I like to amuse myself by forcing myself to pronounce names that are generally considered unpronounceable. The name of Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is one amazing victory that comes to mind but, there’s one name that still eludes me – Tulisa Contostavlos. I understand why she simply goes by the name ‘Tulisa’.
Thankfully, I can get my motor faculties around images of Tulisa without makeup, which do all the talking. This photo of the ‘Young’ singer was captured in February 2012, and Tulisa looks nice here and, well, young, you know.
The 24-year-old is under lots of pressure to look the part nowadays, ever since she took up a job separating the banshees from the larks on the judging panel of The X Factor UK. Tulisa has really clear skin and the friendly demeanor of someone who wouldn’t hesitate to help Simon Cowell up if he fell off his high heels.
In the second photo of a bare-faced Tulisa, we can observe her doing the former act of goodwill actually – kindly forgetting about her night on the tiles momentarily to rescue nearby Jimmy Choo victim Simon Cowell.
