Cher Lloyd has admitted that online criticism of her debut single ‘Swagger Jagger’ has made her consider quitting music.
The singer – who finished fourth on last year’s X Factor – told BRMB that abuse from “haters” has taken her by surprise.
I don’t think they [the haters] understand what they’re doing to me. This is what upsets me a lot and makes me think I don’t even want to do this anymore.
She added that being a pop star is proving harder than she expected, revealing:
I was delusional because as a little girl I thought I’d become a pop star and everyone would love me. I’m not saying I don’t have the best life ever, but it’s been so tough
‘Swagger Jagger’ was released on Sunday (July 31) and is expected to challenge JLS for Number One this weekend (August 7).
