Leona Lewis: 'If my celebrity status disappears I'd be fine with it'

'Bleeding Love' beauty Leona Lewis has revealed that she isn't bothered by the whole celebrity scene and wouldn't care if her own fame disappeared unexpectedly. 

During an interview with Radar magazine, she confessed that being famous isn't essential to her life and she wouldn't be fussed if people stopped paying attention to her in the media as she just wants to be able to sing, rather than enjoy the high life that comes with the celebrity side of it:

"Simon has always told me to trust my instincts and so that's what I've always done. I'd love to sing for the rest of my life, but if my celebrity status disappears tomorrow then I'll be completely fine with that, I really will."

Lewis added that she hopes music mogul Simon Cowell might eventually take her seriously after telling him she wants to record an opera album, and explained that she is classically trained:

"Well I did train in opera initially. I didn't actually switch to contemporary until I was in my teens. I wanted to be a classical singer originally. I told him [Simon] I'd love to make an opera album, and he was like, 'Yes, you should, at some point, blah blah blah, whatever.' I don't think he took it seriously. Perhaps he will now."
