What happens when you mix Selena Gomez with Fergie and a dash of Nicki Minaj? Meet Cher Lloyd. She came oh-so-close to winning The X Factor in the U.K. last year and is quickly climbing the charts in England. And we're predicting big things for her new single and video for 'With Ur Love' featuring Mike Posner. It was released earlier this week, but quickly taken down. Now it's up for good on Vevo and we really, really like it.
We fell in love with her after her unique rap version of Coldplay's Viva La Vida during the audition process, which also impressed judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger. Her first single, Swagger Jagger, went to #1 in the U.K. and Scotland.
Similar to what Lady Gaga did here in the U.S. last week, Cher recently called on the British government to crack down on cyberbully "trolls" who leave negative, even threatening, hate messages via social networks online.
"If I get a nasty tweet, or if someone shouts at me in the street that's really disrespectful to me or my family, I kind of wait until I go home," she told the Daily Mail. "You shut the door and then you can have a cry about it. No one needs to know."
This topic was also just discussed in MTV's DISconnected where stars like Pete Wentz and Keke Palmer discussed whether people would actually say what they write on Twitter to the celebrity's face.
"It's strange because I think, 'Would these people be big enough and strong enough to come up to me and say these hurtful things?'" Cher said. "Because I've got the idea that they actually wouldn't. They would never, ever say that to my face."
