Leona Lewis Christmas With Love interview

How could you NOT love Leona Lewis??

She's drop dead GORGE, has an AH-MAZE Christmas album out TODAY, and is so talented it's crazy!

So, when we got to chat with Leona, needless to say, we were so super excited about it!

Not only did she she tell us alllll you could ever need to know about her holiday album, but Leona also hinted that a new (regular) album could be coming (next year?!), she talked about still trying to watch X Factor, and she even gave some advice to those adorable One Direction boys & other X Factor alums!!

Ch-ch-check out the full interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

On the possibility of a new album:

"Yeah I'm hoping to get back in the studio in the New Year and start recording an album because I feel like I've been really inspired by so much. I've done so many different things this year. I just recently did a film and then this album with a different genre that I've never done before. So I've been re-inspired."

On whether she watches X Factor US or UK:

"I have. I do try to, like whenever I'm home I'll watch it religiously. But I have been away quite a lot so I've missed a lot of it and I haven't been able to watch the US one because I've been home in London. But I've watched a bit of the UK one and it's been very different this year actually, [there's] some really, really good talent."

Her advice for One Direction, Little Mix, Fifth Harmony, and other X Factor alums:

"I feel like when I went into the show, I had a clear vision of what I wanted to do and I really bonded with Simon [Cowell], obviously. I feel like he helped me so much. I felt like it was so important how involved the mentors are. With his advice and his guidance and mentoring, I was really able to do something I never thought would be possible.

So I give the advice of, if you have a mentor, find someone that believes in you and have that support from them. Also have a clear vision of what you want for yourself and don't compromise."

  1. CHINESE READ MINDS!!!! says – reply to this


    Asians all together can hear, and see what you're visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don't want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

    This album is all kinds of stunning. I never thought I'd actually buy a christmas album until I listened to Leona's take on christmas.
