As the release of Cheryl Cole‘s new single ‘Call My Name’ draws nearer, the Pop force is amping up the “sex factor” – as evidenced by her sizzling new shoot for GQ (UK).
After notching up more than a million listens on Youtube with the Calvin Harris produced cut, the ousted X Factor USA judge looks to have landed firmly on her stiletto’s following the “sacked” dramatics which saw her face sport egg a-plenty last year.
What’s more, it seems skin wasn’t the only thing the Girls Aloud star bared for the feature. For, she left little to the imagination when addressing comments made by Cher Lloyd, as well her X Factor USA departure axing…
Details (and more pics) after the jump…
When quizzed on comments Lloyd made last year about wanting to sing with her, so long as it was “live”, Cole responded:
“I went through hell to get her on that programme. Even with Simon. Everyone says stuff at the beginning of their career that they will learn to regret.
It’s disappointing because I fought for her. Maybe I didn’t teach her as well as I thought I had.”
While, on her X Factor ousting and her reconciliation with Simon Cowell, the 28 year old said:
“What I will say is that business is not a nice area. And you might say that I am a business woman, but I’m not into cut throat business moves.Me leaving the show was nothing to do with my accent. I work with Americans all the time.
(As for Simon, when I returned to the UK, I received a message saying) “Hello Cheryl. So now you’ve blown me up in Afghanistan, can we talk” – and we did.”
I’m not one of those people who holds a grudge about anything and I know exactly what went down.”
Meh. Expect the media spin and “save face campaign” to crank into overdrive in the weeks and months ahead.
Cole’s new album ‘A Million Lights’ hits stores on June 18th.
