Honey G slams haters

Honey G thinks Jesy Nelson needs to get her "head checked".

The controversial 'X Factor' contestant - whose real name is Anna Gilford - has slammed the Little Mix star after she recently claimed the rapper is an actress and her inclusion on the show is all an act.

Honey fumed: "I mean literally that's one of the most ridiculous things that I've ever heard.

"It's annoying and obviously it's quite insulting to be called an actress.

"I've been a musician the whole of my life.

"I've got a musical background, I've got a degree from one of the best universities for music production.

"I've been rapping and producing for about 15 years. I'm also involved closely with BBC Radio 1Xtra which is the UK's biggest black music radio station.

"So yeah, she needs her head checked because she doesn't really know what she's chatting about."

And after becoming the bookies favourite to win the competition, the 35-year-old star told Professor Green to "back down or get smacked down" after he accused her of mocking rap music, insisting she has the people who matter behind her.

Speaking to The Sun's Dan Wootton in a Facebook Live chat, she said: "I don't feel like he's in any position to be making comments like that and running his mouth up like that.

"The sixth live show of 'X Factor' this is where I am. You've just seen the bookies' odds - I'm the favourite. I don't think he's in the position to be running his mouth up about me taking the mickey out of rap.

"I've had the public behind me, I've had 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg behind me.

"Snoop is saying he wants to record. Back down or get smacked down."

And the outspoken hopeful didn't stop there as she also blasted "spiteful and malicious" Lily Allen for saying she finds her act "offensive".

She fumed: "She's obviously feeling threatened by a white woman coming onto the scene and rapping and coming out and smashing it and shutting the whole thing down.

"I think she's being spiteful and malicious. She's got a sharp tongue.

"She's obviously saying this type of thing out of spite - she's being spiteful. I don't see how she can say she finds it offensive. She's not exactly the spokesperson of the black community. She better take her jealousy elsewhere."

But Honey insists she doesn't care about being the subject of so many negative comments as she has the backing of show boss Simon Cowell.

She said: "Simon Cowell said last week about me having the X Factor and that's why the show is called 'The X Factor'.

"So if Simon Cowell - he invented 'X Factor', he's the whole thing behind it - he's spoken out openly about me having The X Factor.

"He's never at any point said this is a singing competition get out.

"Again, people coming around saying it's a singing competition I just feel they've got a bit of a bee in their bonnet.

"Me coming along, has that upset the apple cart a little bit? Spoilt their plans? Do you know what I mean? I do feel like they're attacking me on a personal level as well.

"They've got a bit of a problem with the fact that I'm a rapper and I've come into the competition."
