The king of covers

One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan and singer Tulisa Contostavlos enjoy hanging out with each other, but to avoid being recognised by fans they don disguises and fake accents. Speaking to this month’s We Love Pop magazine about their recent trip to V Festival, Tulisa said “We had such a good time. We were dressed in our hoodies and sunglasses, walking around the crowd.”
Tulisa went on to say that the pair use their similarities to their advantage, saying “because we’re both blonde and the same height we pretended to be brother and sister! The second people walk past and say, ‘Is that…?’ we’d start being really loud, shouting at each other in northern accents like, ‘What have you done with me ciggies?’ or ‘Pass us that bloody pint, if our mother was here now she’d blooming kill us! Aahh, come on Chez!’ Tom and Chez are our nicknames when we get together and people look at us like, ‘Oh no, that can’t be them…’ because we’re talking in these really loud northern accents.”
Tulisa also revealed how she upset her bosses on ‘The X Factor’ after she changed her hair back to brunette. The judge said “I didn’t tell ‘X Factor’. I thought they knew, but nobody told them, so the opening shots – when we come in on the helicopters – was filmed after the auditions, so my hair was bright blonde. But I was meant to be brunette going to the auditions so there was this big hoo-ha and I had to wear a wig! I had ‘The X Factor’ ringing me going, ‘What have you done with your hair!?’ ”Tweet
