X Factor: Cher Lloyd Is A Children’s TV Star And Matt Cardle’s Dead Mum Lobbies For Votes
CHER Lloyd is no longer on the X Factor. Dot Cotton’s Team America action figure was once a shoo-in for the title. The show would progress and Cheryl Cole, that “nation’s sweetheart”, would carry her abbreviated mini me to victory on a wave of mojo, hair extension, a sweet right hook and weepy Girl Power.
Then on the final Cher sang a children’s song and looked like a stroppy youth worker with a dream at a Coventry kidz ‘n’ dadz social club. The X Factor is a TV show – if the wannabes want to get on after it’s over they need to continue their career on the magic box. Cher would make a decent character on Balamory or a big sister for Horrid Henry.
Matt Cardle, Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction march on. And Cher strops off. And she sounds horrible, threatening, even:
“You haven’t seen the last of me, definitely not. I’m going to use this as my platform and I’m going to make sure I’m the biggest goddamn thing to ever come out of The X Factor.”
What bigger than Simon Cowell’s ego. The planet is no big enough, Cher.
“That’s not being cocky, it’s just being very, very, very committed to what I do.”
So much for the love of music for the sake of the music – it’s all about being an international icon in Simon Cowell’s pap factory. But let us not be too hard on 17-year-old Cher behaving like an expelled teenager hanging about the shopping precinct.
But the Star likes a character-led narrative and leads with:
“CHER FIX IT FURY”
“YOU CAN STICK YOUR SHOW.”
Only, Cher never said it was fix. What she actually said was:
“Even though I got to the final I knew I wasn’t going to win. I feel like I’ve done exactly what I came here to do. I think someone else deserves to win.”
Someone like Matt Cardle. The Sunday Mirror says Matt is going to win it for “MY DEAD MUM”.
So. A vote for Rebecca or One Direction is a vote against Matt’s dead mum. How could you? You people make us sick.
