Cheryl set to achieve 5th number 1 single
Published by:

Cheryl is on course for her fifth number one single, while Calvin Harris is leading the albums race.

‘I Don’t Care’ is the second single to be lifted from the X Factor judge’s new album Only Human, following former number one ‘Crazy Stupid Love’.

The track has currently sold 49,000 copies and is on track to become Cheryl’s tenth number one in total (including four Girls Aloud hits and the 2010 charity cover of ‘Everybody Hurts’ for Helping Haiti).

The singer will also become the British female with the most number one singles in history if sales momentum continues, overtaking current record holders Geri Halliwell and Rita Ora.

Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ drops a place to number two, as Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ also slips a place to number three.

John Legend has climbed the charts following his X Factor performance

John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ shoots 22 places to number four following his performance on X Factor over the weekend, while Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ rounds out the Top 5.

Harris enters the charts at 14 with ‘Outside’, featuring Ellie Goulding, as The Script are on course for their 12th Top 40 hit with ‘No Good in Goodbye’ at number 18.

Elsewhere, Nicki Minaj is looking at her 22nd Top 40 single with ‘Only’, featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown at number 26.

Since returning to her seat for her fourth year as a judge on X Factor, having been away for what seems like more than four years, there’s something noticeably different about Cheryl. And it’s not just her new double-barrelled surname, Fernandez Versini…

The judge has come a long way since receiving a text from Simon Cowell’s people sacking her from the US version of the show. What, you forgot about that? So did we!

Back then, Simon himself even said that Cheryl was a ‘different person’ and that ‘she’d lost her confidence’ after turning up for the first round of auditions of the US show in ‘that’ infamous outfit.

After a rather public humiliation, she isn’t willing to take any chances moving forward with Simon Cowell warning him ‘never to let her down again.’

Returning to our screens every Saturday night feistier than ever, she’s adored by women. Not because of her sense of style, her petite frame or cheek but her reputation precedes her. With her head held high and her past forgotten, she’s working with recording artists to produce a totally new sound.

This is a woman who is a fighter and knows exactly what she wants – given her trials and tribulations. She wants to the set the record straight.

Cheryl herself confirms that she’s moved away from the days where perhaps she might have been in ‘crazy stupid love’ – a nod to her former partner.

Now it seems, she’s not afraid to show this completely new found persona and, if Saturday night live shows are anything to go by, her attitude is causing a stir among the judges and contestants alike. This assertiveness is clearly reflected in her new music.

Her new single, ‘I Don’t Care’ has a very up-beat dancy feel to it but we can’t help asking ourselves what or who the lyrics are really about? Is that cynical of us? “It means exactly what it says on the tin!” she assures us. The song is, apparently, ‘One of those feel free, have fun, one of those don’t-really-give-a-sh*t-vibes.’ How she really feels about life right now, apparently. Yes, Cheryl, we all get those days when we feel like, well, we’ve just left the office after a long week and we’re in need of a Lambrini or two!

The Daily Mirror’s Cheryl Day
Published by:

Calling ALL Cheryl fans – today is a day that you don’t want to miss because Mirror Celebs have got a whole day packed full of EXCLUSIVE treats.

Throughout the day we’ll be bringing you exclusive interviews with Cheryl, features, quizzes,and a music surprise to celebrate the upcoming release of her new new single I Don’t Care and album Only Human.

The X Factor judge and pop superstar doesn’t hold back as she talks to Mirror Celeb about X Factor gossip, her new music, why she’s become BFFs with Lauren Silverman and babies.

Part 1: VIDEO

On the surface, Cheryl looks like the same old Cheryl. But it only takes the smallest of scratches to realize the singer sitting in front of us is a totally different person to the one she was less than two years ago.

You might think one day everything is fine, and then the next you get the rug pulled from under your feet, the 31-year-old tells us.

“You have to reevaluate and reconsider, so living in the moment is the only way you can enjoy your life.”

That’s the theme of her new album Only Human, an upbeat mix of tracks, which she says are a message about living your life and not sweating the small stuff.

The singer’s perched on the edge of a sofa in an exclusive London hotel, dressed casually in ripped jeans and an animal print top but still looking like she’s stepped straight off the X Factor stage on Movie Night, naturally.

She’s glowing and wearing a huge grin – and has everyone reason to be. She’s about to release her fourth solo studio album, scored a number one with the album debut, is back in wowing UK audiences every weekend and is also now better known as Mrs Fernandez-Versini.

When asked if she’s thinking about starting a family soon with Jean-Bernard who she wed back in July, she smiles and tells us: “Oh god. Kimberley just had her baby, a boy who I consider as a nephew. I don’t need my own right now.

“I’ve got two… not so much in Lola, but I feel like I’ve got a little baby to take care of in Lauren on the X Factor, so I’m doing alright with 12 nieces and nephews, somebody on X Factor, and a baby with my best friend.”

When we play a game of word association (watch here) and ‘married’ pops up, Cheryl lets out a little laugh and that beaming grin turns into a megawatt smile.

But just two years ago it was all very different. She was told she had 24 hours to live after contracting malaria and not long after, in 2011, Simon Cowell sacked her from the US version of the X Factor after just one episode. When asked her about her lowest points, she jokes: “How long have you got?”

Continuing, Cheryl says: “Probably when I was sick to be honest. It puts everything into perspective when it’s your health.

“You can have anything in the world but if you haven’t got your health, nothing else matters. Even if you do have money and you’re fortunate to have money, you can’t always pay to be healthy.”

In her new single, out on Sunday, she sings the line ‘I don’t care and it feels so f**king good to say I swear’. But what does she care about now?

“That everything else outside of work is happy and healthy. Family, friends, loved ones, dogs. Not necessarily in that order, but I won’t say the other order as I might get in trouble,” she grins.

Buzzfeed Interview

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is sitting cosily in the corner of a plush London hotel sofa, looking at me with those huge Bambi eyes and explaining exactly how she finally reached a stage in her life where she gives zero fucks.

“You get to an age where you’ve been through so much crap that you feel like things are not so important any more,” she says. “I just don’t care. It’s actually nice to feel that relief when you’ve cared so much for so long. I’m a really sensitive person so I care deeply about things. So when that’s gone – and this is on whatever subject, by the way – it’s a nice feeling.”

It’s fair to say that Cheryl is back, and more confident than we’ve ever seen her.

Take the video for her new song, aptly titled “I Don’t Care,” for example. Filmed on a beach, with the star in minimal make-up and an oversized jumper, laughing at the camera and miming the words “Zero. Fucks. Given”, it’s arguably the best she’s ever looked and sounded.

It seems the main reason for this new display of confidence is her two-year hiatus, during which she secretly married Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and recuperated after a solid 10 years in the public eye.

“Since the age of 19 to 29 I didn’t stop,” she says. “I went from being known for singing pop songs and having a great time with my friends to being a judge on The X Factor. And until you experience that, you have no idea what it feels like. My life and career went on a whole new level. A lot happened. I needed a break.”

During that break, she drew up a “bucket list” of sorts, which she called her Fuck It list. Perhaps the most famous item on that list was to “get a big tattoo”.

A photo of that tattoo, which begins midway down her back and extends to the top of her thighs, was shared on Instagram by the tattoo artist, Nikko Hurtado. Within hours it had gone viral online, before appearing on the front pages of the national press.

Did she know Hurtado was going to post that image?

“It was a long, painful day and I don’t think any of us were in the right frame of mind,” Fernandez-Versini says. “It doesn’t look anything like it did then. That was when it was brand, brand new. I love it. It wasn’t for anyone else. And Nikko is an actual artist. He is seriously talented.”

Between painful tattoo sessions, she ticked “swimming with dolphins” off the list, and says the experience was by far the most liberating thing she has ever done.

“There was about 200 of them circling round and showing off,” she says. “One will backflip and the other one will backflip higher. They’re playing. They’re the most human-like mammals you can find. The lady who took us on the tour said they can sense good and bad energy, and not to worry if they don’t come near you – it might just be because you’re nervous.

“But I had one dolphin that just swam round and round me and he was looking at us with one eye. He’d swim towards us, like, ‘Are you going to duck? Or are you playing? Can we play?’ He was doing tricks all around us, and if I looked below there were schools of them swimming around in formations. It was magical.”

But the Fuck It list is by no means completed.
