Tulisa got a lift from a paparazzi photographer who had been following her around Los Angeles.

The 'Young' singer - who is eager to pursue an acting career following her rumoured axe as a judge on talent show 'The X Factor' - is currently in the city for movie auditions and decided to carpool with a snapper who was capturing her trip on Tuesday (19.03.13) so she could get to an important meeting.

The 24-year-old star posted a snap of herself in the back seat of a car on photo sharing website, Instagram, with the lucky shutter-bug appearing to chauffeur the singer to her meeting. The photographer's long-lens camera can be spotted sitting on the dashboard and a laptop computer is also seen next to him.

She captioned the picture: So seeing as the paps are following me all day I've decided to get a lift off one to my next meeting lol!! (sic)''

Tulisa then joked: ''Riding with the enemy! LOL. (sic)''

The former N-Dubz star recently revealed she is hoping to move into acting and has lined up a role in a big budget sequel.

She said: ''I enjoy acting, so I'm off to Los Angeles tomorrow to do that and I have meetings, auditions and agents lined up. I've got a movie planned for the end of the year so I'll be filming in LA then. It's 95 per cent confirmed but all I can tell you is it's a sequel.''
