X Factor judge Tulisa has been mocked after her debut solo album 'The Female Boss' only managed to chart at number 35 in the Official UK Album Charts.

Lee Newell of Viva Brotherwhose much-hyped 2011 debut album 'Famous First Words' reached Number 34 on release wrote on his Twitter feed:




Tulisa's debut solo LP, which features the number one single 'Young' and was promoted to millions of viewers when she performed live on The X Factor semi-finals, sold less copies in its first week of release than albums by Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond and Susan Boyle; all of which have been out for a number of weeks and entered the UK Official Singles Charts at just Number 35 this weekend (December 9).

Earlier this year, Newell and other members of Viva Brother announced that they would be returning as new act Lovelife. The band posted three new tracks online, which you can hear by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
