X Factor 2010: Cher Lloyd And Katie Waissel Work On Their Hate

by | 28th, October 2010

THE long gap between the short songs on the X Factor is fuelled by Katie Waissel stories about how much she is “hated”.

The aim is simple: keep Katie in the news headlines and create a polarity of opinion among the show’s fans.

But she’s not alone in being the topic of the PR storm. The tabloid focus is on Katie and Cher Lloyd.

The narrative is that Cher Lloyd is “fragile”. The Mirror reports that Simon Cowell has asked One Direction to look after “fragile” Cher.

And here’s hated Katie, or rather hated Katie’s caring dad Maurice. He tells the Mail:

I’ve had Katie sobbing on the phone to me every night. She’s had death threats sent to her over the internet, and we’ve had to ask the police to intervene. Only the other night, Katie said to me: ‘Dad, what’s the point in going on if everyone hates me?’

But still Katie goes on. And that makes her battler, doesn’t it. It make her gutsy. That’s a good thing. Look out for her belting out Against All Odds on a later show. Hate is good. So. Here’s Cher Lloyd getting some of that hate for herself.

Says she:

“My haters are my motivators.”

And in case Katie looks like a one-trick pony who is obsessed with her profile, OK! magazine – there Katie used to work – tells us:

Katie’s been fragile recently.

One thing is for certain: we like our female reality TV singers to look weak…
