Leona Lewis not bothered by Liam Payne age gap
Nov 20, 2012, 17:01 GMT
Leona Lewis has lots in common with Liam Payne.
The 'Trouble' singer is reportedly dating the One Direction hitmaker - who is eight years her junior - and says they share similar interests despite their age gap and she is flattered by his constant compliments about her looks.
Leona, 27, said: 'You'd be surprised how much we have in common. He's great. We see each other when we can. It's very flattering to get compliments like that. It's cute... I'm not saying [if we're together]. I'm having fun and enjoying myself.'
'If you have a bond with someone it doesn't come into it. I'd date someone younger or older, ages doesn't matter to me. Or looks, really - it's all about maturity.'
Former 'X Factor' winner Leona - who recently split from dancer Dennis Jauch - admits she can be hot-headed and wants someone who can take the lead, but also said good dance moves are also high on her list of must-haves in a relationship.
She added: 'I like someone who can take the reins, who knows what they want and is strong with me. I'm quite fiery, so they have to be able to handle that. But I do like to feel protected. Also, being artistic and spiritual. That's what's important to me. And I'd never trust a man who can't dance!'
The star has shunned famous boyfriends in the past, but didn't rule out the possibility of striking up a romance with a fellow celebrity.
She told LOOK magazine: 'It can be [easier to have a famous boyfriend], but it can also make it harder because they're as busy as you are. I like relationships to start with friendship. I've had times where I've just been instantly attracted and gone straight into a relationship, and it's never worked.'
