Cher's desperate to be a success

TAGS:

Cher Lloyd‘s debut single – released on Sunday – is already No 1 in the download chart.

The controversial X Factor star has faced tough criticism and taunts over Swagger Jagger, and even death threats on Twitter, but she’s now proved she’s got something the public wants.

Cher, 18, aims to ride around in a flash Bentley like mentor Simon Cowell one day, so she knows she has to keep working hard.

Simon told me not to change and not let people tell me what to do,’ says Cher.

‘He said listen to people that know best but always do what your gut says is right.

‘He’s a good man.’

Cher is thrilled that her fans are loving her music and her ‘haters’ have been silenced.

Swagger jagger issss ouuuutttt! Busy day today!’ she Tweeted.

‘Just got off stage at key 103 to some amazing news! Number 1 on itunes! Thank you all sooooo much!!!! :D.’
