    Up, up and away: Diana Vickers told heat magazine that she loves being despised

Speaking to this week's edition of the showbiz magazine, she said: 'I'd rather people loved or really hated me than just thought, "Yeah she's alright."

The full interview with Diana Vickers is in this week's edition of heat magazine, on sale now

'Some people passionately despise me, but I love it because there's feeling behind it. I love that there's controversy - it makes things exciting. I get a buzz from it, and having people judge me and say horrible things just makes me more comfortable in my own skin.'

'When people had a go, it gave me a thick skin and made me love myself more.'

The teenager kicked her new pop career off with a bang as she put on a raunchy performance at a gig in London on Sunday night.

Ditching her quirky style, the 18-year-old looked all grown up in leopard-print knickers, kohl-rimmed eyes and thick red lipstick at the G-A-Y club night at Heaven in London.

The X Factor 2008 finalist performed five songs from her debut album Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree, including her new single Once, which is released today.

Revellers at the gig noted the singer was looking a tad worse for wear and stumbled on stage in her high heels.

Vickers signed a record deal last year, but was given permission to put the recording of her album on hold so she could star in the West End production of Little Voice, for which she received rave reviews.

During her time on the X Factor, Vickers stood apart from the other candidates for her insistence on performing in bare feet and 'The Claw', the nickname for her bizarre hand movements while singing.

In a recent interview, she promised fans she would try to tone down her 'claw'.

From reality star to pop star: Vickers is cultivating a sexy new image as she prepares to release her first single today

She said: 'The claw - oh God. I don't even know why I do it, I have no idea. I literally just go free when I'm singing and I do really weird things.

'I haven't even sung live for ages as me, as Diana, so there might be some new movements popping up somewhere. I don't know, we'll see.'

She caused controversy when producers gave her special permission to 'sit out' week five after contracting laryngitis, which some viewers deemed unfair to the other finalists.

She was eliminated from the ITV show during the semi-final after losing the public vote.

Revealing: Vickers flashes a bit too much as she crouches on stage

Her exit culminated with her rumoured boyfriend Eoghan Quigg breaking down in tears as the pair hugged each other tightly on stage.

As a result of their close friendship, Vickers split from boyfriend Chris Jones while on the show.

Vickers is now dating a musical theatre actor/singer, but has refused to publicly name him.

In hindsight, Vickers is now grateful she didn't win the show.

She told Fabulous magazine: 'I'm so grateful I didn't win. I think the originality is stripped away from those who do make it.

'Between then and now, I've been given time to grow, do Little Voice, which I'd never been able to do had I won.'

Count me in as one of those who can't STAND her. I hate the way she speaks and sings. If she'd continued singing properly after Little Voice there might a have a backtrack of Leona Lewis or Ray Quinn proportions from me, but there she is with that terrible affected singing voice that makes me want to open a VEIN.

She looked a state in those GAY pics, really dear no one wants to see you flashing your bits, especially a club full of gayers.

Top Tip: you aren't Lady GaGa, you will never be Lady GaGa, you should stop trying to do things she CAN get away with.

Everything about her is so contrived! The barefoot singing, the Dolores O' Riordan rip-off voice, the fashion sense...she's got a total brass neck even MENTIONING originality. If I want to listen to a howling banshee I will dig out my Alanis Morissette CDs, thanks all the same.

I can't stand her either for the same reasons as you!
