LONDON (AP) -- Leona Lewis understands that One Direction fans are protective of their lads.

Since being linked with Liam Payne from the boy band, the British singer has seen endless discussions about her dating status on social networks.

Lewis won't talk about who she is or isn't seeing at the moment but knows that One Direction's "amazing and crazy" followers are watching her every move.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Lewis says she's learned "not to read stuff because most of it's untrue, or like blown completely out of proportion."

The 27-year-old singer is back with a new single called "Trouble," although she laughingly admits that she tends not to cause trouble in her own relationships.

"Trouble" is out in the U.K. on Sunday.
