Leona Lewis Named Goodwill Ambassador

British beauty Leona Lewis has been named Goodwill Ambassador for UK-Japan 2008 at the nomination ceremony in Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday. The 23-year-old singing sensation was joined by Dave Spector, the American television personality in Japan.

UK-Japan 2008 has been conducted by the British embassy in Japan to mark the 150th anniversary of the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Amity and Commerce. The campaign showcases British culture in three categories: art, science and creative industry.

Leona said, “I’m really honored to become a Goodwill Ambassador for UK-Japan 2008. I recently visited Japan for the first time and I loved it. I’m very much looking forward to exploring such an amazing country further as well as supporting UK-Japan 2008. I’m very happy to have an opportunity to understand more about the wonderful country.”

    She’s only been there once and knows nothing about the country and she is named GWA? Seriously ridiculous, I’m sure there are many people that are very involved and more deserving of the role.

    something about her is just so late 1990′s.

    Plus, she has an ugly nose. SHe should use her money to get some rhinoplastry, because right now it looks like an onion was stuck onto her face.
