LA Reid: “Cher Lloyd Is Going To Be A Huge US Star”

Published: Tuesday 13th Dec 2011 by David

As the man behind the careers of P!nk, Usher, Justin Bieber and Rihanna, X Factor USA judge LA Reid has proven over the years that his eye for talent is almost  without fault.

Now, in what will be sure to serve as good news for X Factor UK alum Cher Lloyd, the Epic Executive has revealed just how he thinks she will fare as an artist in the US.

His comments below…

When asked for his thoughts on the ‘Sticks & Stones’ belle, he explained:

Listen, you need to know that Cher Lloyd will be a massive star in America. Watch out. Cher Lloyd, watch it.

 

While Lloyd’s notoriety in the UK is an indicator that the US general public may find her just as interesting, comments such as these should be uttered with caution.

For, all one has to do is look at what happened when JLS and NDubz when they tried to ‘make it’ States Side to see that success in one market does not automatically guarantee success in another.

However, with confirmation that Team Cher is tweaking her debut album for its US release and with Syco firmly behind her, there is little doubt her US campaign will be impressive -to say the least.

    Uh no please. She’s f****** annoying as hell. I’m from the UK but live in the US. I would prefer it if she just stayed in the UK.

    I FEEL THAT L.A HAS TRULY LOST IT!!!

    HOW DID GO FROM WRITING SUCH ICONIC AND TIMELESS SONGS WITH BABYFACE FOR “WHITNEY HOUSTON, TONI BRAXTON, KARYN SMITH, MARIAH CAREY * MARY.J.BLIDGE” AND THEN “USHER & PINK” TO SIGNING ABSOLUTE CATS LIKE “RIHANNA AND JUSTIN BIEBER”???

    NOW – CHER LLYOD!!!

    LOL She´s not even going to be huge in her country despite all of the x factor promo, like she already demonstrated with the release of her first album a couple of months ago. It was a flop
    What is he going to do? Going the Rihanna route??? Putting down our throats an untalented girl by giving her all the possible generic singles he can get fron producers? Please NO, not again

    Cher is not even huge in this country her sales have been poor or Europe she is going to do nothing in the US. LA is saying what Simon Cowell wants him to say. Cher is so talentless and Misha B makes her look like a bag lady.

  5. ThankMeLater December 13, 2011

    omfg no. Please I don’t want her here! I heard her and she isn’t even that good. We already have stupid music we don’t more.

    love cher lloyd!

  11. Trisha24 December 13, 2011

    Oh no not another talentless b****. Seems like LA wants to replace Rihanna lol. Watch out people LA will make her the new mega star. LA pushing Cher down our throats and buying up the singles. LA will also buy the number one position on iTunes. This is why he’s so sure Cher will be a US mega star.

  12. dreamlover December 13, 2011

    No. I hope this is a joke.

  13. MISHKA December 13, 2011

    L.A you trippin’

  14. skintightjeans December 13, 2011

    Hell nawl! this wanna be urban b**** got on my nerves when I lived in London.

  15. antonio aniello December 13, 2011

    TRISHA24 – You could be right there, the general consensus is that Cher Lloyd is qit possibly he only urban, street, rapper, hip hop wannabe that actually cant string together basic rhymes to save her life plus had the most unbelievably transluscent image that anyone in the urban scene has. Basically, people who love hip hop dislike Cher Lloyd to a passion and the only reason people like her is because there are a number of chavs out there that actually like Chers fake a*** ‘who not to rap’ style of crap. But yeah so far her sales generally have been poor and even in the US, Chers debut single absolutely bombed only reaching no.320 peak on the US itunes. Her UK no.1 placing was the result of mass media overhyping and SyCo buying 20,000 copies specifically to give her debut a chance at hitting the top spot but you can bet your a*** that L.A.Reid will do everything he can to ram her name down our US throats just like it happened in the UK. All because she’s a white girl and the moguls want to use her as a facade over a black style. Racism for enterprise is the name of the game and unfortunately it happens all over the place in music. On the other hand, saying that Cher will be a mega star is almost impossible in the states since a lot of people there already know she aint got the ingredients i.e. how can you be a mega satar without credibility?

  16. Jay December 13, 2011

    I never doubt anything these days. Who knew some of these talentless broads Kesha, Rihanna, Katy Perry would be hugely successful today. With the right packaging and promotion, Cher can be a huge US star.

  17. Dev December 13, 2011

    I cant stand her but she’ll do well. They will release with UR Love in the states and they’ll lap it up, the rest of the album will flop and they’ll give her the Rihanna,Katy Perry & Ke$ha treatment and she’ll be a star. A record company that can convince busta rhymes & little wayne to work with her must have some power. America loves these kind of artists.

    Hell, Leona lewis is struggling and they keep ramming her down our throats over and over again.

  18. mobwife December 13, 2011

    Now isn’t this the same SLORE that attacked and racially insulted a black women in England? LOL yeah LA I’m sure in some coners she will be quite the standout! ……………………*YAWN*

  21. College girl December 13, 2011

    Don’t see that happening. The only person I can see becoming huge in the U.S. market is Misha B.
