Pop star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini insisted she remained a Labour supporter after reportedly complaining the party’s mansion tax would “f*** her over”.
The X-Factor judge talked of the “big downsides that come with having money” in the interview with the Telegraph’s Stella magazine.
And she said that now she is a mature woman paying a “f****** lot of tax” she feels a greater responsibility to be well informed about politics.
But she insisted her comments on the Opposition’s proposal to impose an extra levy on homes worth more than £2 million had been “taken out of context” .
In a message referencing the magazine on Twitter, the singer wrote: ” Here we go with the out of context headlines! FYI… I am a Labour supporter, but will always want to hear what everyone has to say.”
Presenter Myleene Klass previously attacked Labour leader Ed Miliband over the policy, claiming it would hit ”little grannies” whose homes had increased in value over decades, rather than the super rich.
Actress Angelina Jolie said she could be “put off’ moving to Britain by the proposal, which would come in this year if Labour wins on May 7.
Fernandez-Versini suggested in the interview she could “make my own party”, adding that “s tranger things have happened”.
“It’s hard for me, because all my friends and family vote Labour,” she said.
Asked if she would consider voting for David Cameron, she replied: “Not really. I want to hear what everyone’s got to say.
“I’ve always been Labour all my life but I want to hear what they’ve got to say for myself. Now that I’m a mature woman.
“I feel like a greater responsibility now to vote for who runs our country. And I pay a f****** lot of tax. So I think that I need to have a really well-informed, well-educated opinion.”
She added: “There are big downsides that come with having money. As many as with not having money. I mean, they’re different types of stresses, but they’re both stresses.”
