We recenlty reported about Cheryl Cole opening up about her private life. She told BBC Newsbeat: “Everybody else has a job and gets to go home for the weekend or switch off after work. Mine? It’s being me. It can sometimes be a hard thing to do.” She also spoke about her upcoming UK solo tour but joked her manager Will.I.Am will also want a centre stage part.

Cheryl Cole wishes she could ‘switch off’, put her public persona away, and keep her private life away from the headlines.

The ‘Call My Name’ singer finds it difficult being in the public eye because she never gets any time to relax, and wishes she could keep her private life to herself. However, this is no easy task, and Cheryl admits she finds it ‘almost impossible’ to keep her public and private life separate.

She told BBC Newsbeat: “Everybody else has a job and gets to go home for the weekend or switch off after work. Mine? It’s being me. It can sometimes be a hard thing to do.”

Cheryl is all set to embark on her own solo tour of the UK in November, but joked that while she is headlining, her manager - Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am - will want a centre stage part.

She laughed: “He’ll be really annoying, have lots of opinions and probably wants to put himself flying down onto the stage somehow at some point to join us on there.”

However, Cheryl never gets upset with Will.i.am and his crazy ideas, even if he can sometimes be difficult to get hold of.

She said: “He takes time to answer his phone. He takes a long time to answer his email. I never get annoyed with him though, he’s too loveable.”

Cheryl Cole & Chace Crawford: The Hottest Couple Ever?
Cheryl Cole & Chace Crawford: The Hottest Couple Ever?

Pop star Cheryl Cole has certainly added fuel to the gossip by peddling Chace Crawford's recent confession that he’d like to take her out.

Cheryl certainly sent out the green signal when a fan asked her on Twitter who her favourite actor is, by re-tweeting and responding: ‘Chace Crawford :D’

The cheeky response came after single Chace said: ‘If someone could arrange a date for me with Cheryl Cole, I’d be there straight away.’ After blushing, the 26-year-old Texan gushed: ‘She’s very lovely - is she single? I’ll try it on with her.’

Cheryl had a chance to cross paths with Chace on the set of their new film What to Expect When You’re Expecting.

‘She’s talented, beautiful, young. It’s the accent that makes her special’ the Gossip Girl hunk continued.

Meanwhile, Cheryl has had a dig at fellow popstar Rihanna, by saying that she’s going to be taking her responsibility as a role model far more seriously than the Umbrella singer.

Rihanna is a free spirit and doesn’t care if she calls somebody a **** on her Twitter. But there are 12-year-old girls on there,’ she said.

After her parents split when she was 11, she said: ‘I didn’t grow up with a role model so it’s nice to be somebody’s guide.’

And after performing on X Factor’s rival show The Voice at the weekend, the Call My Name singer says she has put the world of X Factor troubles behind her.

She told Attitude magazine: ‘That show can drive anybody mental. I haven’t said anything about X Factor USA from that day to this. Why? Boring. It’s year-old news. I’ve made a whole new album since then.’

Watch this space, we predict a Chez-Chace romance any day now!

Cheryl Cole Defends Chris Brown

It seems that Cheryl Cole has a soft spot for bad boys. The singer, who divorced Ashley Cole for cheating on her with multiple women while they were married, has publicly defended Chris Brown after his infamous assault on former girlfriend, pop sensation Rihanna.

Back in 2009, Chris violently attacked the Rihanna in his car on their way to a post award party, causing a media storm and a court injunction forbidding him to go anywhere near he bruised star. Fight For This Love singer Cheryl recently said in a radio interview that the public should now all “move on”, a remark that sparked Chris Brown to thank her for her support.

Cheryl said during the In:Demand With Alex James interview: “I think it’s really kind of Rihanna actually (to forgive Brown). She’s come out and publicly forgiven him really. I think it’s about time we all did if I’m completely honest, if you want my opinion… I think it’s time we all moved on. That guy is talented as hell.”

This prompted Brown to take to social networking site, Twitter, to say to the former X Factor judge: ’Your amazing! I appreciate you.’ He then later added: ‘@cherylcole thanks for the support and believing in me as an artist!’

Cheryl also said in the interview how she wishes more people could learn to forgive and forget, adding:  ”I work with people all the time with my charity that are transformed characters. They’ve done things when they were young that they regret, they’ve been to prison and they’re now upstanding members of the public and help our community and are amazing people.”

Could Cheryl be setting herself up for a reconciliation with love rat Ashley?

Pop star-turned X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been named the sexiest woman in the world by FHM magazine.

Tulisa seemed happy yet humble with the award, saying: “It’s a true honour and definitely a lovely confidence boost. I’m proud of me and I am who I am… I wouldn’t wanna be anything less or anything more, I’m just myself. This is an award that will stay on the mantelpiece probably for the rest of my life.”

Cheryl Cole talks about having kids, & Will.i.am takes a dig at Kim Kardashian & Paris Hilton

Singer Cheryl Cole has been speaking to GQ magazine and revealing a few secrets.

 Cheryl, who recently confirmed a Girls Aloud reunion, admitted: ‘I’d love kids. I’m obsessed with babies. I know that is what I was put on Earth to do – to be a mother.’

And she said she has a soft spot for Prince Harry, who she thinks is amazing, and added: ‘Me and his dad are as thick as thieves and I knew Harry before I knew his dad so we’ve met a few times.’ However, she said she would be worried about being dubbed a ‘cougar’ if she dated him - even though at 28, she is only a year older than the young Royal.

She said: ‘He’s cool. Although, I think I would be Cougarville in that relationship. I would be in Cougarville.’

Cheryl is set to release her new single Screw You next month, and, contrary to reports, has insisted it’s not about her ex-husband, Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole. She also said it is not about her former X Factor boss Simon Cowell, who unceremoniously dumped her from the US version of the show last spring.

She said the song is not ‘autobiographical’ and added: ‘It could be directed at whoever you want it to be directed at.’

Cheryl also always has a friend in musician and The Voice coach Will.i.am, who today came out in support of her and said he was glad that she had turned her back on the X Factor. Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Will, who collaborated with Cheryl on her hits Heartbreaker and 3 Words, said being a judge was a ‘waste of talent’.

He added: ‘Cheryl is a great artist and a great performer and I think the world needs that. Music is what got us here. If you’re not singing any more or writing songs then you’ve abandoned your base. Cheryl Cole to me is not Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton.’

Cheryl Cole has spoken out about her relationship with Simon Cowell in a revealing interview on Radio 1.

The Fight For This Love singer sat down for an hour long interview to promote her new single, Call My Name. And she also confirmed the news that Girls Aloud are planning a reunion for their tenth anniversary.

Asked by host Chris Moyles whether or not she and Simon are still friends following her axe from the US X Factor last year, Cheryl replied: “Yes. Well, frenemies.” But she jokingly added that had always been the case, saying: “Nothing’s changed there.”

Pressed for further details of her brief stint on the show, she said: “If you are asking have I spoken to him since, many times. If you are asking were they interesting conversations, absolutely.”

The 28-year-old said that she didn’t rule out working with Simon again in the future, saying: “I haven’t thought about it, I haven’t had time, I’ve been recording an album!”

On the subject of music, Cheryl also confirmed the news that Girls Aloud fans have been waiting for: “It’s our tenth birthday in November – we all want to do something to celebrate it, so watch out!”

With so much going on with her career, Cheryl said that she isn´t looking for love at the moment: “I’m not interested right now. I’ve not got the time!”   

Louis Walsh set to trash Cheryl Cole in new book?

It seems that Louis Walsh cannot let go of the fact that Cheryl Cole criticised his management skills while he was manager of the girl band Girls Aloud. Cheryl claimed that Louis was only in it for the money, which has made The X Factor judge very upset.

Walsh explained to Heat magazine, “What is she peddling this time? Eyelashes or hairspray? It’s definitely not her music! At least I am still on The X Factor and happy to be there. I’m a much better manager than she is a singer. She seems to be in the fashion business now, selling fake hair pieces, fake eyelashes, fake everything.”
He added, “Has anyone ever heard her sing live or a cappella? If she comes back on The X Factor, she needs to sing live this time. I don’t know why she’s started this war with me.”
Louis continued, “I’ve always liked her - she’s a very good looking girl, but obviously not the best singer in Girls Aloud. Nadine is - I always said that. Cheryl is a great clothes horse. Nice girl, but likes to get her own way. I’ve got two words to say: vocal lessons. When I write my book, I’ll tell the real story of Cheryl.”

It has been reported that former X Factor judge and singer Cheryl Cole is set to drop her surname and just be known professionally as Cheryl. However, Cheryl is not doing away with the Cole part of her name completely and intends to still hang on to the Cole surname.

A source explained to The Sun, “Cheryl is beginning a new chapter in her life so she doesn’t want to be associated with negative stuff from the past. She’s not removing Cole legally, it’s just a career statement.”
They added, “She’s in a really good place at the moment and wants to take life by the balls. She can’t wait to start performing live again and her new stage name has given her comeback an extra bit of spice.”
Cherly Cole, formerly Cheryl Tweedy, married Chelsea and England left back Ashley Cole in July 2006, after he had proposed to her in Dubal in 2005, when they had been dating for around nine months. However, the couple split following allegations that Ashley Cole had been having an affair.

The X Factor judge Louis Walsh has hit back at former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole regarding recent claims she made about him managing Girls Aloud. Cheryl said that Louis was the Girls Aloud manager by name and was happy to get paid but was never really involved with the group.

Walsh told The Mirror, “As far as I’m concerned, our friendship is over. I’ve no idea why she made these comments but it says a lot about her. I was always the first to defend her on the X Factor, and always watched her back. I thought we were friends.”
He added, “I won’t stand for anyone criticising me professionally and if I was in London right now I’d give her a piece of my mind.” Louis Walsh claims that he was one of the people who stood by Cheryl Cole when she was axed from The X Factor USA.
Louis said at the time, “’I talked to Cheryl today - we’ve been texting all day and we’re having fun. I think she’s going to be fine.” Walsh also previously claimed that he would love for Cheryl Cole to return to The X Factor UK. However, it seems that things may now be a little different.

Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole has revealed that, while Louis Walsh was the girl groups manager on paper, he never really did anything other than collect his money. There have been talks of a Girls Aloud reunion in the near future but again, it seems that Louis Walsh had no involvement in it.

Cole explained to Marie Claire, “We never had management. Louis claimed to be our manager but he never did it. We didn’t talk to him or anything like that. He just took a cheque. Oh yeah, he took the cheques.”
Cheryl then went on to admit that she has a huge crush on Prince Harry admits that she would love to marry him. Meanwhile, Prince Harry has previously admitted that he is very fond of Cheryl Cole, claiming that he was jealous of X Factor acts who got to work so closely with her.
Cole said, “I do! I love Prince Harry. Actually, I had a dream last night I married Prince Harry and was a real-life princess. It’s true. And Charles was my father-in-law instead of my charity partner!”
Cheryl Cole is set to premiere her new single Call My Name on April 20.
Who is responsible for One Direction success?
Who is responsible for One Direction success?

It seems that everybody is looking to get a bit of credit for the huge success that British boyband One Direction are currently enjoying. One Direction are not only huge in the UK but they are also becoming huge in the US, where they recently entered at number one with their debut album Up All Night.

Now everybody is trying to get in on the One Direction success. Recently, former X Factor judge, Cheryl Cole, claimed that she is responsible for the success of One Direction, tweeting “Remember who really mentored you when @simoncowell wasn’t there LMAO!! #proudofyouboys.”
While there is a clear joking tone to the tweet, it was still unnecessary for her to tweet it, if she did not feel that way to some degree. However, current X Factor judge Louis Walsh was more blatant about wanting credit for the success of One Direction.
Louis said, “I just want it to be noted that I’m taking some of the credit because I helped put that band together.” However, i think everybody is in agreement that Simon Cowell has to take a lot of the credit, as well as the One Direction boys themselves and the songwriters involved in the Up All Night album.
Who do you think should take the most credit for the success of One Direction?
