I'm from Hackney, I'm hard

Leona Lewis has spoken out again about her assault at the hands of an X-Factor reject during a book signing in London last month, and confirmed what Excite said when we said we knew that Hackney girls are tough. That’s because she said it herself to The Sun. That’s like, some sort of premonition, or something.

‘I'm from Hackney, so I'm hard,’ she said, not explaining why if that was the case she ran away crying and didn’t clump him one back. ‘I'm not going to let something like that bother me. When you grow up where I did you learn to move on. There was always some kind of craziness going on in my neighbourhood.

‘The boys were always fighting each other and there was loads of street crime. I know how to look after myself. The part of London where I grew up has the highest crime rates in the country.’
