Damn straight, gurl! It's the oldest defense mechanism in the books!
Cher Lloyd is no stranger to controversy, nor is she criticism, but the young X Factor contestant has lashed out at her 'haters,' and asserts that they're really just jealous of her success and insecure about themselves!
‘Some people find it hard to come to terms with the fact that everyone is different. I think it all boils down to their own insecurities – if you’re unhappy with yourself, you’re going to pick on someone else, and that’s what they’re doing. I feel sorry for them. There are certain lines in the song [Swagger Jagger] that basically explain that, no matter what I do, people won’t stop writing about me and talking about me all the time. I’m still in people’s minds, whether they like me or they hate me.’
That's a very mature attitude for such a young celebrity, and we commend her for refusing to compromise her uniqueness and creativity just because of hurtful words!
Your individuality is what makes you great!
Don't lose sight of that!
