After being unceremoniously ousted from the X Factor USA judging panel, Cheryl Cole will no doubt be reeling tonight. Yet, beyond losing the much sought-after job (reportedly due to her accent), the British star is likely none too impressed with her replacement – Nicole Scherzinger.
For during a 2006 interview, Cole and her then-group Girls Aloud, did not hold back when it came to their disdain for the Pussycat Dolls star. See for yourself above.
While Cole’s judgement of talent is laughable (given her lack of any), the whole segment was hilarious! It’s just an ironic shame that such brazenness went out the window when it came time to actually judge as a job on the UK X Factor. Rather she cosied up to the media’s portrayal of her as ‘the nation’s sweetheart’.
With no job left in the States, she’ll no doubt be hoping such a label sticks when she lands on home turf. However far fetched it is.
