Cher Lloyd booed offstage and pelted with bottles of urine at V Festival - video
'It's hard enough being up here, but it's not nice having bottles of piss chucked at you,' singer tells crowd
The 'Swagger Jagger' singer was performing at the festival's leg at Hylands Park, Chelmsford when she was struck by a bottle two songs into her set and left the stage. She later returned, however, and told the crowd:
It's hard enough being up here, but it's not nice having bottles of piss chucked at you.
Lloyd, who rose to prominence after appearing as a contestant on The X Factor and released her debut album 'Sticks & Stones' in October last year, later took to Twitter to comment on the fiasco. "Thank you so much for all the nice messages, shame that a couple of people had to ruin it," she wrote. "Unfortunately a glass bottle got thrown at me on stage. Tomorrow is another day, big love to my brats!!!"
In October last year, Lloyd admitted that the public's criticism of her was almost enough to make her quit music. Lloyd, who claimd that the campaign she found herself subjected to made her scared to leave her house, said: "I know people think I'm a bitch but they don't realise I put on a massive front. When I go home and close the door I break down, phone my mum and dad and cry. It got to the point when I thought 'Why am I doing this?'"
