Star's new record is starting to get airplay

Tulisa Contostavlos‘s debut solo single got its first play on the radio this morning – in the same week a sex tape showing her performing a sex act her was leaked online.

The 23-year-old’s track, Young, opens with lyrics that are strangely relevant to recent events.

‘Forgive me for what I have done, ‘cos I’m young, yeah I’m young,’ sings Tulisa.

‘I don’t mean to frighten you off, it’s just fun, it’s just fun.’

Tulisa posted a 5-minute YouTube video on Wednesday night apologising for anyone that was offended by the graphic tape that surfaced on Monday.

She said she was ‘devastated’ and ‘heartbroken’, but the Twitterati have hit back.  

‘Find it ironic tulisa’s sextape came out a few days before the first play of her new single,’ writes one Twitter user.
