There was once a time when everything was rosy between Cheryl Cole and Cher Lloyd, when Cheryl was Cher’s mentor on The X Factor and it even seemed that the two might have a long career together. However, Cher appeared on the radio yesterday, where she was asked a number of questions about her former mentor and the response was not the friendliest to say the least.
Asked if she would be interested in doing a duet with her X Factor mentor Cheryl Cole, Cher Lloyd responded, “Maybe is she sings live with me.” She was then asked if that means that she thinks Cheryl finds it a challenge to sing well live, Cher added, “Well it is nowadays, when you haven’t got the nifty little button to press!” Finally Cher Lloyd was asked if she was referring to autotune, which she replied, “What, oh no. Never, never ever.”
Clearly Cheryl Cole had gotten wind of this and she decided to take to her official Twitter account to give Cher Lloyd a nice little warning. Cheryl wrote, “Be careful who you kick on your way up … They kick you twice as hard on your way back down #unappreciationisugly” It will be interesting to see if Cher Lloyd has a response to that.
