Pop star Leona Lewis has defended her decision not to drink insisting revellers who need alcohol to have a good time have a 'stupid mindset'.

The 'Bleeding love' singer is proud of her healthy lifestyle, refraining from eating meat or drinking booze and the teetotal star is baffled by partygoers who need a drink to boost their confidence - branding them 'ridiculous', reports contactmusic.com.

'I find some people's attitude to drinking ridiculous. I think it's so funny that people think you have to drink in order to have fun. It's such a stupid mindset,' she said.

'A lot of my friends are like, 'I need a drink to get on the dancefloor!' I don't need that 'help me to relax' thing. If I'm around my friends then I can really relax and have a good time, that's all I need. I don't need alcohol,' she added.
