Cher Lloyd has a successful stateside career that she has built around her personality and hard work.
In her own right, she has done really well. Collaborating with Demi Lovato, Ne-Yo and Becky G have lifted her profile.
But one particular group has really helped Cher leapfrog her way into the mainstream – and that is One Direction.
Of course they competed against each other in the X Factor competition and have had a similar background in the way that they have made it to the top.
With One Direction making a splash first, the door was open for Cher to follow and increase her music sales off the back of 1D.
“We are always all over the place trying to work hard and trying to get somewhere, so I’ve seen a lot of [1D] on the Internet and on TV, and it’s great they’re doing so well.”
The sexy little minx added:
“It kind of sets it up for me, too. You know, if someone else can do it from a TV show, then I can do it, too. It’s hard for anyone to break into this music industry, and I think having a collective bunch of people makes it slightly easier – and the guys, too.”
Cher, who kicked off her UK career wit the nursery-rhyme-come-pop-song ‘Swagger Jagger’ continued:
Girls loves guys [Cher laughs]…I’m very much a One Direction fan. I think they’re the best boyband out there right now.”
With Cher’s UK career seemingly put on hold, it looks like she will be firmly sticking to the US market – where her brats love her.
A new album is on the way, but one of her hit singles hasn’t even been released in the UK yet. Maybe she has given up completely?
