The Leona Lewis buzz has crossed the pond in a big way. Pop celeb blogger extraordinaire Perez Hilton has been waxing rhapsodical ever since she hit his radar, and now reports diva Whitney Houston allegedly has rung up Leona Lewis, the newly crowned champion of Simon Cowell's X Factor reality TV show, offering congratulations too.
"Whitney thought Leona was amazing and wished her good luck," says an unamed Hilton source.
Hilton reports that the beautiful star Leona will land in America in the next couple of weeks to meet Clive Davis, Whitney's mentor and patron. Clive has presented Lewis with a purported $10 million record deal.
Uber Songwriter Diane Warren has told Perez she is "interested" in working with Leona as well.
