Leona Lewis doesn't want people to walk all over her just because she is a nice person.
The 'Bleeding Love' singer insists she will never become a diva, but she has also vowed not to be seen as a pushover.
Leona said: "I don't drink, I'm just a stay-at-home type of girl, I guess. But I must say that, although I'm not a party animal and don't have a nasty thing to say about anyone, this must not be confused with me being a walkover. I will not be walked all over!
"I won't let people take me for granted. I have got a quiet self-confidence, which people can mistake as a weakness, but I know what I want and know how I want to be treated, and I will not be walked over."
The 22-year-old singer, who won British reality TV show 'The X Factor' last year, also insists her chart success is down to her determination to never give up.
Leona said: "You have to have a kind of strength to stick in there. It's taken me a while to get here, and if I were a pushover, I would have given up ages ago."
