Singer Tulisa Contostavlos told police she was just "playing a role" when she offered to get an undercover reporter "white sweets," a court heard.
The former X Factor judge, who was dropped from the show after the allegations surfaced, claimed her words "had been taken out of context."
In a statement when she was arrested last June she said: "I'm not a drug dealer. I didn't initiate the supply of drugs to the Sun journalist."
Tulisa, of Friern Barnet, north London, denies being concerned in the supply of class A drugs between May 10 and May 23 last year. The trial continues.
