Leona Lewis has spoken out against fellow singers like Miley Cyrus, who she believes set a bad example to young fans.

The most successful X Factor winner to date, Leona targeted Miley especially for starting the twerking craze.

The 28-year-old 'Run' singer told the Mirror today (30 November): "Being sexual and in your face is not great for girls who are quite young.

"Personally I've got a god-daughter and little nieces and I don't want them to see me acting crazy and naked in my music videos."

Leona is currently promoting a Christmas album after being persuaded by mentor Simon Cowell to do one. Her festive single 'One More Sleep' is out tomorrow.

In the interview, she added: "You can't blame those girls, who are being young and sometimes dumb. They're just expressing themselves how they want to.

"Girls are not perfect, we all make mistakes."
