We're not totally aware of who British pop star Tulisa Contostavlos is, but she experienced possibly the most embarrassing incident yesterday while checking her bags at Miami International Airport. Her vibrator began buzzing inside her suitcase, and a friendly airport worker offered to turn it off for her.

Tulisa Contostavlos, better known as simply Tulisa, is something like the Nicole Scherzinger of Britain. She was in some forgettable pop group (in her case, N-Dubz -- a kind of Pussycat Dolls, hip-hop-influenced outfit) but is now concentrating on her judging duties on the original edition of Britain's X Factor. Apparently, she just fights with Kelly Rowland all the time. (Yes, that's what post-Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland has been up to.)

Because we end up browsing through just about every news article with the word Miami in it, we've been aware all week of Tulisa's South Beach vacation. Nothing that exciting happened until she got to the airport.

​No, her iPhone wasn't going off, and she later confirmed it was indeed something a lil' freaky.

Yeah, everybody, bore off!
