Leona Lewis has been giving Cheryl Cole tips on how to crack the States – but says X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell still gives her advice.
Leona, 24, who’s already sold millions of records and been nominated for three Grammy Awards, said the Girls Aloud star can make it in the US.
Talking to this week’s New! magazine, Leona gave this advice to Cheryl, who’s currently in Los Angeles working on her new single: “Just to try to make the best music you can. You’ve got to make great music and work hard.
“You can’t fake it over there. You have to be genuinely good and go for it.”
As for last year’s X Factor winner Joe McElderry she said: “I met Joe before the final. I wished him luck and he seemed sweet. But I’ve only just started myself and I’m still learning, so I’m not sure what advice I could give!”
I’m sorry but Leona is trying to give a veteran tips? You what now?
