Cheryl Cole: “I Have No Desire To Break The States”

Published: Thursday 21st Nov 2013 by Sam

Like the world it exists in, the music industry has shrunk.

Indeed, thanks to the onset of the internet, stars are able to broaden their reach in markets beyond their own. No longer are acts confined to the locality of where they’re signed; they now have a global audience.

What’s more, with buyer spend at an all-time low, acts are almost compelled to cultivate a worldy presence so as to survive in the era of 360 deals, which see record labels recoup spend via international touring, merchandise, and brand partnerships.

It’s surprising, then, that one of Britain’s supposed top Pop stars, Cheryl Cole, has gone on record express that she has no interest being known in music’s biggest market, one she pulls so heavily pulls from. She doesn’t want to be known in the US.

Full story below…

The revelation came during an Instagram rant about a story that suggested Cole has been lobbying for Kim Kardashian (who she’s recently been photographed with) to make her a star in the America.

 Clearly annoyed, the ‘Fight For This Love’ singer posted the following:

“This is really how pathetic it’s got!!! There aren’t enough words to tell you on here what a load of sh*t they talk but they might get this as it is my 20,0000th time saying it! I have no desire or “big dreams” to ‘break the states! I have been offered and refused many opportunities which I have chosen not to take lol! Get it through to your thick heads.. And just a ps. I met Kim years ago and have seen her on more than this occasion. And fyi I think both Kayne and Jay-z are genius bc #fact!#boreoff


The idea of Kim Kardashian helping anyone’s career (especially a music career) is more laughable than it is frustrating. Yet, still, we understand why Cheryl would be jarred.

That said, she’s fooling approximately no one with the I don’t “want” to break America soundbites. The reality, as was so publicly played out, is that she up and left the UK to embark on a much-hyped US-invasion, only to be sacked from the platform that was supposed to aid her cause – The X Factor USA. After just one week.

In the time since, Cole has achieved moderate success on home soil – where remnants of her embrace of the US are still wildly apparent. Indeed, the former Girls Aloud member is routinely backed by all-American dancers and was, up until very recently, managed by US hitmaker The Black Eyed Peas frontman was reportedly tasked with making her a major star in the States.

Put simply, from where we’re standing, she’s retro-fitting what actually went down.

In any case, regardless of the global village that we live in, there isn’t anything inherently wrong with not being a major star in America. After all, there exist many acts who’ve enjoyed incredibly fruitful careers being popular elsewhere – such as Kylie Minogue, the Sugababes, ironically Girls Aloud.

Look out for Cole’s new album, which we hear is due next year.

    Translation – I am not good enough to break the states were there are real singers

  2. NT November 21, 2013

    After that whole Xfactor USA season 1 situation of course you have no interest in making it big in the states ; whatever dreams you had were SHOT DOWN!

  3. Henry November 21, 2013

    LOL. what a pile of BS. the reason why she joined XF USA was cause she wanted to have her big US break.

  4. swedfghujikjiugythdrgsdfyu November 21, 2013

    Like Britney And Cassie

    • NT November 21, 2013

      Britney’s a worldwide superstar/legend

  5. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! November 21, 2013

    If ever there was a post made, pretty much guaranteed ending in a host of put downs on an artist, this was it…

    Btw, last weeks X factor USA, managed only 3.6 million and is on the verge of being cancelled..

  6. CARMEN November 21, 2013

    well maybe she NO LONGER has intentions to break into the states. when she was offered the XFUS deal, back then she might have been all for making it in the States. People’s desires/wants can change over time, no need to make this more than what it is

  7. Biting Truth November 21, 2013

    She knows there’s no interest for her in the States. If there was a palatable chance for her to explode here, she would be all over it…either by choice, or by the force of her handlers. No one in the US ever cared for that group she was with, nor has any of her solo music ever piqued any real Stateside interests.

    We have enough dizzy, talentless bimbos who can’t sing a basic scale, and only appeal to idiotic 90s babies because of how hairstyle changes and how flashy their Twitter/Instagram accounts are.

    If she tried, she’d fail. Stay where you’re at.

  8. ABEL November 21, 2013

    Teu cú!

  9. Mark111 November 21, 2013

    That what I would say if I couldn’t break in the States too. Most of you UK b****** can’t, go join the table with Rita Ora.

  10. Cheryl Cole doesn’t even sound FAMOUS November 21, 2013

    b****, you wish you could break the charts across the pond! of course you can’t possibly desire to accomplish the impossible! lol

  11. HOTSTUFF November 21, 2013

    this H** simply realized that she has no place in the states ! what is she bringing new to the table ? NOTHING. Her voice is generic & forgettable. and her ‘music’ let’s not talk about that trash….

  12. HOTSTUFF November 21, 2013

    Having said that, i respect her for not being DELUSIONAL, because some desires should remain as desires, simple.

  13. Mathew Knowles stan November 21, 2013

    But who is she? I’ve never heard of her.

  14. xyz November 21, 2013

    uhm…since when do non-singers have no chance in the us? the charts are full of them

  15. SHUT UP U BASICS November 22, 2013

    U b****** better be high, cause you only talking S***

    Cheryl is lying, we all know it, but she’s a much better performer than large among of gimmick pitchy singers with no creativity.

    Cheryl >>>>>>> enough said
