The Sunday Times spoke with Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole about the new season of ‘X Factor’, going solo, and how her marriage to Ashley Cole is weathering since the soccer star confessed to infidelity early last year.
On Ashley: “I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t trust anybody in life except my mother and my dogs. I’m scared to let people know how much they mean to me, and it’s scary that you can love a small hairy thing so much.”
On replacing Sharon Osbourne as an ‘X Factor’ mentor: “Sharon’s shadow was really hard to fill, and at the time my only impression of judging was of being judged, so being given that name was scary. I felt uncomfortable. Then I started to realize that I could actually benefit these people because I know how they feel. I can help them.”
On going solo: “It’s exciting and scary doing my own stuff. Growing up I always wanted to perform, but I always wanted to be in a band because it’s a form of protection being in a little gang.”
