Megan McKenna feels ‘liberated’ after ditching alcohol, big hair and lip fillers
Megan McKenna is currently starring in The X Factor: Celebrity, wowing the nation with her stunning voice. Her original song This has already climbed in No2 in the iTunes chart.
The Essex beauty's career is clearly evolving from reality star to chart-topping singer, so she has decided to have an appearance and life-style overhaul so as to be taken seriously as an artist.
In an interview with MailOnline she says that she feel “liberated” after dissolving her lip fillers, getting rid of her big Essex hair and the intense pressures of reality TV.
The stunning star has also swapped alcohol and all-nighters for herbal teas and vitamins. She said: “I’ve done all the partying. I want more! I feel liberated, 100 per cent. I finally feel comfortable in myself. I'm so over that life! It's boring.
“This girl that everyone is seeing has always been me. I've just never had the chance to break free and show that side of me because I've been on TV shows that are a lot of pressure and drama.
“I have stripped back with loads of things, my hair, my make-up, my lips, right down to my clothes. I feel less is more.
“I know I dress up for stage but that's a different story, if you see me in my day to day clothes, I am on a much different vibe to what I used to be.
“My lifestyle has completely changed too. I'm taking loads of vitamins, drinking herbal teas, I steam every single day. I constantly steam. I have to, it is a really good way to keep your vocal chords healthy.”
The X Factor: Celebrity
Although Megan has spoken out about having a lip fillers dissolved in order to reach the X Factor: Celebrity final, her full personal transformation goes much deeper than appearance.
She added: “For ages now I have cut out alcohol. I've cut out drinking this year. I have the odd drink to celebrate every now and again but I haven't had a drink for maybe two months now.
“I don't go out partying at all. The show is so intense, you have to look after yourself. I feel really healthy, it just makes me feel a lot stronger and better in myself.”
In past years, Megan has been notorious for temper tantrums especially in her starring roles on The Only Way Is Essex, Celebrity Big Brother and Ex on the Beach. But the blonde bombshell insists that she has matured now she is 27 and is entirely focused on her career.
She said: “I have grown up on TV. I have grown up a lot over the years and now I can laugh about the silly mistakes I made on TV.
“I feel because I haven't been taken seriously for a long time now because of the other reality shows I've done – all I can think is this is my chance now for somebody to see me and for me to have that break.
“I really, really need that break. It would mean everything to me.”
