The `Bleeding Love` singer has revealed she has "no desire" to be famous and deliberately hides her true character from the world.
She said: "I definitely keep myself secret. I went on a show watched by millions, but I had no desire to be famous, and I still don`t. Unless you talk to me every day, you`re not really going to get a sense of me."
The 24-year-old star is one of the best-selling British female solo artists of recent years, and her debut album `Spirit` topped charts around the world when it was released in 2007.
Despite her success, Leona has no wish to live like a celebrity and is very happy with her boyfriend Lou Al Chamaa.
She added to top of the pops magazine: "This is real life, it isn`t make-believe. For people to think that you should leave someone just because, all of a sudden, you`re a singer and you have opportunities - I feel sorry for them.
"I`ve got my friends and my family around me, so I think they keep me grounded. It`s good to have people that I trust around me.
"I don`t go out a lot in London. I usually just stay in and have people round. And on a day off, I`m in bed by 11pm."
