X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd admits having the occasional tantrum

X Factor star Cher Lloyd is proud to be a diva.

The rapper has thrown backstage strops while on the ITV show because she’s been unhappy about her outfit choices.

‘I can be a bit of a diva but at least I admit it,’ Cher, 17, tells the Daily Star. 

‘I occasionally have a little tantrum. I laugh my head off with my little tantrums afterwards.’

Cher reckons being a loudmouth is helping her win over head judge Simon Cowell, 51.

‘If you want to do something you have to make yourself heard,’ she tells The Sun.

‘I know Simon respects that. He likes divas!’

Cher is being mentored by Cheryl Cole, 27.
