My Big Mouth: Does Cher Lloyd’s ‘Swagger Jagger’ deserve so much abuse?

By Kathryn Cummings

Apparently everybody hates Cher Lloyd, but she is still favourite to take the number one spot in tomorrow’s chart with her debut single, ‘Swagger Jagger’.

The 18-year-old has faced huge criticism since she first started out on the The X-Factor, and now her new single has divided the public’s opinion.

During her time on The X Factor ‘Hate Cher’ became the fourth highest trending topic on Twitter.

“I would love to see someone destroy Cher’s ego! #hatechar,” one Twitter user wrote.

Another Twitter user ranted: “She comes across as a spoilt brat, her performances are rubbish and she thinks she can change British music, that is why I #hatecher.”

A few months ago even ex-News of the World showbiz editor Dan Wootton attacked her so badly over Twitter Lily Allen decided to step in and defend her.

The online criticism she has received about her new single has even made her consider quitting music for good, but I don’t think it’s the song that gets people angry I think its Cher herself.

The controversial singer does come across as quite bratty and arrogant in interviews, but that could be just nerves and the fact that she is very young she may not know what’s best to say yet.

The comments that are left on a range of social networking sites reveal a wealth of prejudice against the star, who is repeatedly called a chav and abused for her gypsy roots and has shockingly received death threats.   

Even though the heavily tattooed star looks like a tough cookie, the vile comments that are posted about her background and family must seriously affect her and are completely unacceptable.

In my opinion the single is a mess, its manufactured pop that doesn’t tread any new ground but you’ve got to admit it is pretty catchy.

Some people find it hard to accept that people are different, but there is no need to abuse such a young girl for trying to make something of her life, if you don’t like her then don’t read anything about her or listen to her music, it’s that simple!

‘Swagger Jagger’ certainly hits back at her ‘haters’ and what a perfect way to get back at them if she does manage to knock JLS off the number 1 spot tomorrow, maybe then they will give her a break.
