Leona Lewis - Leona Lewis is more confident

Leona Lewis has grown more confident with age.

The 28-year-old singer insists she's not the shy young girl she was when she first auditioned for the UK version of 'The X Factor' in 2006, and feels she has grown and found her voice during her time in the music business.

She said: ''When you're younger, you have a lot of insecurities, but as you get older, luckily, they start to kind of fade away. I'm like, 'You know what? I don't care. This is me.' I'm not insecure about the things I used to be. It gives you this confidence. All I can put it down to is being older and wiser.''

The 'Bleeding Love' hitmaker, who is in a relationship with German back-up dancer Dennis Jauch, feels her confidence shows in her music, which she says is inspired by her own love life.

She added to BANG Showbiz: ''I feel like anyone who's coming from a place ... when I first started I was 20 when I put out my first record and now I'm 28, I've gone through a lot of different things - relationships, life, things happen, I've grown up as a woman. I'm definitely more confident and I'm coming from a little bit of a different place now. I hope the music has evolved and moved on.''

Leona's new album 'Christmas, with Love' is out now.
