Singer reckons X Factor winner doesn’t represent normal girls

Kate Nash has defended her shock triumph over Leona Lewis at last month’s Brits.

The singer caused an upset when she robbed the X Factor winner, 22, of her hotly-tipped glory in the Best Female category.

But Kate, 20, insists that the gong recognised the fact that she’s a genuine artist.

‘Leona seems like a really nice girl,’ she admitted at a music festival in Texas. ‘But I think it was really good I won it because I started this myself. I’m not a manufactured, size zero pop artist who is going to bring out her own perfume and clothes range.

‘There are teenage girls who grow up wanting to kill themselves because they can’t be as pretty as the girls in the magazines. But I’m quite normal, so it’s great.’

Meanwhile, Leona was denied the top spot in this week’s single chart as Duffy held strong with Mercy.
