Darryl Dishes: Cher Lloyd compares being famous to peeing in front of the world…

The Hits Morning Show presenter, and MP!’s resident pop star pal Darryl Morris is back yet again with more exclusive goss and interviews only on MP!. This week Darryl got to catch up with the lovely and surprisingly down to earth Cher Lloyd ahead of the release of her brand spanking new album ‘Sorry I’m Late’. Jealous? Us? Never. 

Cher Lloyd is back. It’s a headline she must be getting sick of hearing, but there’s no denying Cher’s absence. She’s been busy building her American empire and doing a lot of growing up.

“I was slightly concerned that I hadn’t been back to the UK in such a long time and that lots of people still viewed me as the person I was before. It might be weird for people now”

After graduating from a talent show and launching herself into the music business, Cher was, by her own admission, difficult. I hadn’t met her in the thick of her X Factor growing pains; but I’d heard stories of diva tantrums and horrible interviews. The Cher I met this week couldn’t have been any different. Warm, kind, charismatic. She was charm personified and I felt the start of a genuine friendship.

“My life has always been like somebody having a night out and pulling their trousers down and doing a wee in front of the whole world. If somebody did that they’d be horrified when they sobered up.”

There’s an image I didn’t need. The height of her weeing in public days came at X Factor mentor Cheryl’s house. Cher was brought to her knees by a throat infection and broke down as she thought she’d blown her chances.

“I can’t watch it back, it makes me cringe slightly. I was in such a state that I didn’t want to do it. I’m not happy with the way it went but I’m happy with the outcome, so you can sort of accept it”

The outcome Cher talks of consists of becoming one of the UK’s biggest exports in America, a notoriously tough place to crack. It’s come at a price though and the singer feels guilty about turning her back on her homeland for so long.

“It’s been difficult to get my head around everything but it’s gone so well in America that I’ve just not been willing to give up that opportunity. It’s been really difficult telling my Mum and Dad, but I have to come back… I’ve got to see my Nan and my Granddad. I do get to [Skype] but that makes me sad. It’s not the same. I can see my Mum and I know she’s having a cup of tea and a fag, but I’m not really joining her!”

At least she’s got new husband Craig to lean on. The now married couple travel the world and Craig follows where Cher leads, including to buying a house in the states. So no more dreaded hotels and living out of eleven suitcases.

“We get exited over silly little things like whether they have real milk and not the little UHT things”

If ever you’re making Cher a brew, avoid the long life milk. But don’t expect a diva tantrum if you forget, that Cher is long gone.

‘Sorry I’m Late’ is out July 29th and new single ‘Sirens’ is out now!

The Cher Lloyd album is nearly upon us, and it’s STILL brilliant.

So we’re all agreed now that Cher Lloyd’s new album ‘Sorry I’m Late’ is one of the highlights of the pop calendar, right? 

The former X Factor star has been working with some of pop’s finest hit makers and the likes of lead single ‘Sirens’ and ‘Dirty Love’ prove that Ms. Lloyd is here for the long haul. The LP is finally out on July 28th so only a few more sleeps ’till we can get our grubby little mitts on a copy. In other news, ‘Sirens’ is out RIGHT NOW.

Hooray!

MP! Reviews: Key 103 Summer Live

We sent Daniel down to Manchester’s Key 103 Summer Live gig, here’s all the goss from the pop packed night.

With artists such as The Vamps, 5 Seconds of Summer, Foxes, Katy B, Rixton and the return of Cher Lloyd – there was no holding back!

In fact, I was lucky enough to meet Foxes in Starbucks, ever so casually.

British sensations The Vamps opened the show with one heck of a bang! Performing their single ‘Last Night’, the arena audience certainly became one of the loudest I’ve heard. They went on to perform their upcoming single ‘Oh Cecilia’ and their latest single ‘Somebody To You’. It was certainly one one of the best shows I’ve seen the boys do.

Cher Lloyd returned to the UK stage after a brief hiatus working on her latest album ‘Sorry I’m Late’ performing her hit single ‘Want U Back’ and her latest single ‘Sirens’ – it was a pleasure seeing Cher again, back where she belongs.

Aussie superstars 5 Seconds of Summer also took to the stage performing their three singles. The boys got the loudest screams of the night, even a few screams by dancing bananas (no, really!). Their performance of their next single ‘Amnesia’ was one of the best of the night.

Boyband Rixton took to the stage performing in their hometown, which did not go unnoticed. The boys thanks fans for their ongoing support since the release of ‘Me And My Broken Heart’ which has since smashed the charts landing at number 1! Jake even busted a few moves, could he win Strictly Come Dancing? I think so!

Listen: Cher Lloyd streams brand new album ‘Sorry I’m Late’ and it’s amazing.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Cher Lloyd’s forthcoming opus ‘Sorry I’m Late’ would never see the light of day, what with constant delays and a release date so far away it made us a little bit Sad Face at times.

However, the wait is over as Cher has just popped the entire album up online to listen to prior to the official release on July 28th. Hurrah! Definitely a contender for pop album of the year, wouldn’t you agree?

Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd finally team up for official ‘Really Don’t Care’ video! Hurrah!

Demi Lovato has been involved in some high profile collaborations of late, from duetting with The Vamps on their latest single to getting up onstage and crooning with Ed Sheeran. But the one we’ve really been excited about is her team up with Cher Lloyd on new single ‘Really Don’t Care’. It was one of our fave tracks on the album and we’ve been dying to see the pop tag team get together for an official music video, and we haven’t been left disappointed. 

Demi has just unveiled the fierce new clip for the track, filmed in the midst of L.A. Pride earlier this month, and it looks like it was one hell of a party. Cher finally makes her appearance as we’d hoped and the pair rock out together looking every inch the amazing pop stars that they are. 

Seriously, what a duo they would make.

Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd finally performed ‘Really Don’t Care’ together and it was amazing. Obviously.

Some of the world’s hottest stars have been gracing the stage at the Good Morning America summer concert series so it was only fitting that Demi Lovato would pop by to sing a song or two.

The former Disney star belted out an energetic version of kiss-off anthem ‘Really Don’t Care’ to thousands of screaming fans in Central Park in New York before bringing out special guest Cher Lloyd, who features on the original track. The girls serve up some major attitude during the performance and now we’re really excited about seeing these girls together again in an official music video. Don’t let us down, ladies!

Cher Lloyd drops gritty ‘Sirens’ video and it’s Oscar winning serious face all around…

Is the bratty Cher Lloyd of old finally growing up? The X Factor star has just released the video for new single ‘Sirens’ and its all kinds of all moody and emotional. 

The gritty clip features Cher acting her socks off, chain smoking and crying for the camera in a dark and dingy flat before her shifty looking boyfriend and his friends get hauled off in a police van. The DRAMZ of it all. However its not all Serious Face as the final scene gives us a glimmer of a happy ending with Cher embracing a small child as the chaos dies down. Oscar worthy performances all around but we’re gonna have to have a bit of a lie down after all that.

Cher Lloyd debuts yet another new track with ‘Bind Your Love’!

When it comes to new Cher Lloyd songs, there’s an embarrassment of riches at the moment. While we’ve been waiting for the release of her second album, the aptly titled ‘Sorry, I’m Late’, Cher has debuted THREE new tracks including ‘Dirty Love’ ‘Human’ and her amazing new single ‘Sirens’ which we can’t wait to get our mitts on when it finally comes out in June.

Well if three new songs aren’t quite enough for you, the X Factor star has decided to drop yet ANOTHER new track from the album. ‘Bind Your Love’ is another emotive, devotional love song, giving Cher another chance to show off her amazing vocal chops, in case it may have slipped our minds.

‘Sorry I’m Late’ is released on July 28th in the UK but at this rate we should have the whole album before its even released!

Listen: Cher Lloyd releases new track ‘Dirty Love’! Bratty Cher’s back

She’s already hit us with ‘Sirens’, an early contender for Song Of The Year, and we still haven’t quite recovered from the amazing-ness of it all. However it seems Cher Lloyd singles are like buses: you wait ages for one to come along and two come along at once. Not that we’re complaining of course.

The X Factor star released yet another pop stormer in the shape of the instantly catchy ‘Dirty Love’ and it’s more of a nod to Cher of old, with bratty lyrics about boys who are too nice and boring and her distinctive ‘Want U Back’ style vocal ticks stamped all over it.

Cher’s new album ‘Sorry I’m Late’ is out June 23rd and available to pre-order now.

Monday’s Alarm Pop: Cher Lloyd – ‘Sirens’. The X Factor star returns with a cracker of a new single!

Things have been quiet in the Cher Lloyd camp of late. Despite the release of the sassy ‘I Wish’ back in September, we haven’t heard much in the way of new music and what with album delays galore, we’ve been fearing that one of our fave X Factor graduates would disappear entirely into the pop wilderness.

We need not fear however, as Cher is back with one of her best singles yet. HRRRNNK. ALARM POP.

‘Sirens’ is a proper, huge sounding mid tempo ballad, with driving guitars in the style of Kelly Clarkson circa ‘Since You Been Gone’. The song doesn’t disappoint with that massive chorus either, where Cher begs her lover to “LAAAAAY DOOOOWN HEEEEERUUH” in the “hallowed water” or some such. It’s all very dramatic indeed.

She’s also channelling some serious Demi Lovato vibes, with those wailing vocals in the chorus serving to remind us that, yes, this girl can most definitely SING. In fact, we haven’t heard her sound this good since her celebrated X Factor performance of ‘Stay’ in 2010.

We never doubted you for a minute, Cher.
