The N-Dubz star was forced to explain herself to fans after explicit footage, which showed her performing a sex act on former partner Justin Edwards, hit the internet last month.
However, Contostavlos doesn't regret the time she spent with her ex-boyfriend, and insists she has already begun bouncing back from her embarrassment.
She tells Top Of The Pops magazine: "I could sit all day long saying I wish I'd never done this or met that person but at the end of the day, with the position I'm in, I can't exactly complain.
"Everything's taken me to the place that I'm in and made me the person I am. It just makes you stronger, doesn't it?... I'm growing as a person."
The resilient star is even making plans to expand her business empire by venturing into fashion lines and acting.
She adds: "I want to bring out another perfume, look into clothing lines and bring out my own brand of stuff, too.
"I'm not sure yet, but I might also get into cosmetics - and maybe a bit of acting as well."
