X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd isn't put off by her critics

X Factor star Cher Lloyd is determined to prove her critics wrong.  

The rapper, 17, says she’s being spurred on to do her best on the ITV show by the jibes directed at her.

‘My haters are my motivators,’ Cher tells the News Of The World.

‘I’m not fragile, I’m not on edge, I’m not some little girl.

‘When I hear people say these things, it just makes me more determined to achieve my dreams.’

Cher – who is being mentored by Cheryl Cole, 27 – used to be bullied for her travelling roots.
