Cher Lloyd sticks ‘two fingers up’ to girl bands – *Oh dear*

Cher Lloyd may have been heralded as Cheryl Cole's favourite on the 'X Factor' 2010 but she doesn't like to pass on the love, especially not to pop groups.

The feisty star has aired her somewhat aggressive views on bands saying: "Noooooo way! Two fingers up! I just don't belong in a band."

Is that a dig at One Direction and the likes of The Wanted and The Saturdays? * WHO KNOWS*

When quizzed on whether she'd go down the route of The Risk, Nu Vibe and Rythmix from 'X Factor' 2011 and join a band after auditioning as a solo artist Cher told We Love Pop magazine, she wouldn't have wasted her time:

"I'd stick out like a sore thumb [in a band]. I like doing my own thing. I like the stage to be mine and mine alone. Hahaha!

Well, at least she's  honest...

"I was the kid at school the parents blamed for their kids turning out wrong," Cher said.
And this, we imagine has scarred her more than she cares to share. How she's perceived by the press and public appears to be the inspiration for her upcoming album titled, 'Sticks & Stones.'

Cher's debut album, out 7 November, features some impressive artwork with incredible styling — with Cher clad in white DMs, jewel green shorts and mesh crop top with colourful headscarf tied into a bow in front of a graphic girlie backdrop.

And the music fares the same way with incredibly cool collaborations with some of the industry's finest from Busta Rhyme and  Mike Posner plus producers and song writers who've taken the likes of Willow Smith , Lady  Gaga and Britney Spears to the top of the charts.

With an album set to do as stormingly well as her first track, 'Swagger Jagger' Cher ensures the attention that comes with it won't change her:

"I'm no different to what I used to be like. I still go home and still do the normal stuff I used to - I went on holiday to Butlins a few weeks ago!"

For someone who seems so set in her own skin it's hard to believe she has any insecurities, but her refreshingly frank approach has us surprised:

"We're not all blessed with beauty. You have to work on it. I think I'm still finding my feet in terms of what I want to look like."

Well Cher, judging by these snaps, you look pretty perfect to us. *JEALOUS*
