British singer Leona Lewis has leased a furnished Hollywood Hills contemporary that was listed for close to $9,000 a month.
Designed for entertaining, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom house has an open living room, dining room and kitchen with glass doors to the backyard. The palm tree-lined outdoor living space includes a plasma TV and a dining and bar area. Stone decks surround the swimming pool.
Lewis, 24, was the 2006 winner of the U.K. talent competition show "The X Factor," and producer Simon Cowell (yes, that's the same Simon Cowell as on "American Idol") became her mentor. A revised edition of her album, "Spirit," made its North America premiere at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart last year.
She is in Los Angeles working on her second album.
