Alexandra Burke: I’m ready for love

The X Factor winner says she's ready to find a boyfriend after staying single

Marie Claire’s cover star Alexandra Burke reveals she’s finally ready to fall in love.

The X Factor winner says she’s been single since she entered the contest, but now feels ready to find a man!

‘I am looking for a boyfriend… I have never been in love but I want to feel that. I’m ready for it,’ she says.

But she’s hoping her new love will be get her out of dating unsuitable men.

‘I’ve only ever had two serious relationships and they were both bad boys,’ she tells The Sun.

‘I think every girl gets drawn to bad boys at a young age.’

Alex, 21, reveals she split up from her ex when she discovered she was through to the live rounds of The X Factor last year.

‘He was very insecure and I have no time for that. There’s been no one since,’ she says.

The Hallelujah singer herself could never be called insecure. Quite the opposite in fact!

When X Factor judge and her record label boss Simon Cowell told Alex not to get any tattoos, she promptly went out and got three.

‘I’d wanted a tattoo for ages. I plan to get loads more, but they have to be tasteful and out of sight. No tramp stamps,’ she told the paper.

Alex now has a musical symbol behind her right ear, ‘love’ on her neck and three tiny stars on her right foot.

But Simon obviously wasn’t too disappointed with the singer – he still bought her a Chanel handbag for her birthday.

Cheryl [Cole] got me a watch to match,’ she adds. Alex – seriously – who needs a man when you have Chanel?!
