Misha B: 'Tulisa hurt my feelings'

HURT: X Factor's Misha B was labeled a 'bully' by Tulisa

X FACTOR favourite Misha B has admitted that she has been left hurt by claims that she is a "bully."

The 19-year-old, who was also labeled 'mean' by judge Tulisa Contostavlos on Saturday night's show (Oct 22), revealed that she was rendered speechless by the N Dubz star's attack on her.

"Tulisa hurt my feelings because there are two sides to every story,” she said during an interview following the show.

“You Should NEVER Believe What u Hear...If u Don't Witness It 1st Hand! Theres Always 3Sides To A Story 1.There Side 2.Your Side 3.The TRUTH! [sic],” she later wrote on her Twitter page.

After a breathtaking performance of Prince's Purple Rain, Contostavlos commented:

"There is no doubt about it, when it comes to talent you are way up there. Most people they come into the competition and they to be built up and progress but you came as a whole package and you are definitely the star of the show,

"But I do have one negative this week. I think you are very competitive and I’ve seen a different side of you backstage and you don’t realise that you do it, but in some ways you being so feisty can come across as quite mean to certain contestants and I’ve been told by a few this week there’s been a few mean comments towards them.

"I’m not putting you down but take that feistiness and energy when you get on the stage and leave them all behind. Put aside the attitude," she continued.

Misha's mentor, and former Destiny's Child star, Kelly Rowland leapt to her contestant's defense. She retorted:

"I think that deserves to stay backstage, I think there is a time and a place for everything and we were here tonight to judge them for what they did onstage and not for what is going on backstage," she said.

"We leave things backstage, backstage, but you brought it on stage and you brought it clean and clear and on fire tonight. I am so very proud of you, continue to work hard and you’re supposed to be confident when you go on stage"

Rowland's comments were also mirrored by X Factor viewers, who went on to label Contostavlos the real bully.

“Tulisa accused misha on live TV of "bullying others" when they literally bullied her on live TV,” wrote @xunbroken.

“Tulisa stop throwing shade. Stop it. Don't try and make Misha look like an angry black woman. Be quiet. Judge the performance,” said @Christiana1987

“Tulisa publicly called Misha a bully knowing full well she wouldn't have the opportunity to defend herself. Who is the real bully?,” she added.
