LONDON (DS)Tulisa Contostavlos has hit back at claims that she is manufactured on Twitter. The ‘Young’ singer responded to a user who dubbed her a “manufactured pop idol” following accusations that she used a gang gesture in a new music video. “Flinging gang signs about like she’s a manufactured pop idol” a user wrote. The 23-year-old X Factor judge then took to her account, “Aaahaa sorry but I had 2 bring this up...some1 just called me MANUFACTURED..” she tweeted.
