When she isn’t on stage or in the studio, the 25-year-old pop star insists her world revolves around her horse Goose, dog Misty and rabbit Melrose.
Leona – who is a strict vegetarian – said: “I dote on them. I give them lots of kisses and cuddles.
The ‘Bleeding Love’ singer insists her favourite hobby is “riding horses” and she even collects equestrian art.
She said: “I love nature and enjoy learning new skills.”
Leona is a committed supporter of several animal charities, and she devotes a lot of her time and energy to the WSPA – World Society for the Protection of Animals – because they “campaign to change laws to stop the cruel treatment of animals”.
The star is currently preparing to embark on a world tour in support of Christina Aguilera, bringing two of the world’s biggest voices to one stage.
The tour begins in Uncasville, Connecticut, US, on July 15.
