Cheryl's quotes

  • I absolutely love my tattoos. The girls and I decided that the next time Girls Aloud have a No. 1, we'll all get one done. I want us to get something that only makes sense if we all stand in line, though!
  • The past year [2004] has been the best ever. I feel like I've got a fairy godmother watching over me.
  • I can't hurt any more than I've been hurt, I can't cry any more than I've cried. I've been to the highest of highs and lowest of lows, so one day I'm going to find my middle ground and be happy.
  • [on drug addicts] I don't have any sympathy for the addicts. That might sound harsh, but I don't give a f***. If they're in pain because of drugs, it's self-inflicted. You know what you're doing when you take it.
  • [on Simon Cowell] Simon is the most charismatic man I've ever met -- it's like he's trancing you or something. It's actually quite scary.
  • I believe in soulmates, yes, but I believe you also have to work at love. I happen to believe your soulmate doesn't have to be your partner - your soulmate could be your best friend, your sibling, it doesn't have to be the person you marry.
  • I relate to girls a lot more than I do boys. I just don't get boys, I don't really get men.
  • The thought of being intimate with someone you don't know really freaks me out. I think men should earn that intimacy.
  • I don't think I'm a style icon, not at all. Sometimes I just want to rock out in me scruffs and me Uggs. You know, a really comfy old tracksuit with maybe a dollop of ketchup down the front.
  • [Turning down Simon Cowell's offer of a second shot on US X-Factor] It would take me away from family and my reality, and throw me back into the craziness again.
  • [Girls Aloud] We've grown into women, and have different lives to the ones we had as young girls. We've achieved far more than any of us ever dared to dream of and, whatever happens next, I know we'll always be in each other's lives.
  • [Girls Aloud] The first time we were in the press, it was all about our weight and not our music.
  • [when Simon Cowell first offered her a job as a judge on X-Factor] I wouldn't do X-Factor for all the tea in China.
  • I was Cheryl, the local girl made good. I was one of their own who was flying the flag for Newcastle, and that meant the world to me.
  • [after several of Ashley Cole's infidelities came out in the press] You've ruined our marriage, Ashley. I'll not let you ruin me career.
  • I'd only been out with people who became ugly once I got to know them.
  • Every day I wake up and I want to go to work and do the job I love, and I know that in this economic climate that is an absolute gift and a privilege.
  • If something doesn't feel right, I turn it down.
  • I know what its like on stage, to be judged. Its nerve wracking enough without the buzzer.
  • Beyonce (Knowles) has a star aura and an incredible presence.
  • [being a judge] It makes better television if you string out the moment when the big decision is revealed.
  • Your relationship with your contestants is as important backstage as it is on the live shows.
  • [the press during her divorce from Ashley Cole] I'd felt like a hunted animal for a long time, but now I was so badly wounded the chase felt more inhumane than ever. I still had my music, and nobody could take that away.
  • [the press during her fight with malaria] They're ruining my life. But I had to brave the flames to break out of the Hell I was stuck in. I had to do it or lose my mind.
  • I got lost in darkness for a long time, but now I feel strong and happy again.
  • [the three words she uses to ID herself] Strength, femininity and independence.
  • [after hearing Cher Lloyd perform for the first time] You are right up my street!
  • [Mary Byrne] People like her made me love my job.
  • [the scandal that emerged after she slapped a toilet attendant] I'd gone through my whole life with trouble around me, yet had never been involved with the police myself until I was at the happiest point in my life.
  • You have to forget your dignity when you go into hospital. You leave that at the front door and pick it up on the way out.
  • [discovering her sister was her half-sibling] Gillian had gone from being my sister to my half-sister to not being there at all in the space of about 30 minutes.
  • Don't let the nerves ruin your chances.
  • Geordies are so proud of their own.
  • Don't underestimate girl power.
  • [saying no to contestants] It makes me die a little bit inside.
  • I'd spent my whole life careering from one pressurized situation to another, usually without much chance to breathe in between.
  • Team spirit spurs me on. I've always found it easier to be strong for other people than for myself.
  • [her first thoughts about Jedward] You two are TV gold.
  • [reconciling with Simon Cowell] I didn't want to work with him anytime soon, but to be in touch again felt like a cloud had been blown away from my life.
  • Derek (Hough) is one of those people who makes the day more enjoyable.
  • [during her divorce from Ashley Cole] I'm not going to stay at home and wallow in all those horrible feelings and thoughts when I could be doing what I love and making music.
  • I never had bad vibes about marrying Ashley (Cole). I wish I was still married to him...if only things had turned out differently.
  • [about her wedding] I felt like a princess, but one with her feet firmly on the ground.
  • There are always bumps and crashes after every high.
  • [Ashley Cole's infidelities] When I'd said my vows to Ashley on our wedding day I meant them, but how could we possibly recover from this?
  • My 20s have been full of the highest highs and the lowest lows, but now its time for me to find some balance, and my happy place. Keep calm and soldier on.
  • I have never claimed to be the best vocalist in the world. I'm a performer, and putting on a show is what I enjoy most of all.
  • My family are my real world; they're not in the dream that my life becomes sometimes, and when I need a leveler I turn to them. They've watched me have a dream, pursue it and live it, and now having a family of my own is my next big dream.
  • I hated drugs with an absolute passion.
  • I just loved being on the stage. I felt alive. It's where I felt like me.
  • I've got an old head on me shoulders.
  • [being a pop star] I wouldn't be happy doing anything else.
  • If someone attacked a Tweedy, we were taught to defend ourselves.
  • X-Factor changed my life and taught me so much on so many levels.
  • If I became famous in LA, where will I be able to escape to?
  • [US X-Factor] Its just like the UK auditions but with American auditions.
  • I had no interest in being educated. My life took place outside the school gates, not inside them.
  • Pride is a massive thing for Geordies.
  • It was not a question of "if" I was going to make it, just "when".
  • [her divorce from Ashley Cole] It's like a death, but you're still alive, living after the death of something that was such a big part of both of you.
  • You need to know Newcastle to really know me, because being a Geordie is so much a part of my character and is so special to me.
  • [the early days with Ashley Cole] He didn't invite trouble into our lives in any way at all, and I felt so comfortable in his company.
  • [the differences between her and Ashley Cole] Nobody cares what he does as long as he has a good game. It's all about the football, but it's different for me because the fans want to know everything and not just about the music.
  • Whenever things are going right, something goes wrong. It's like the happier I am, the worse the crash.
  • I am a woman and I like sex.
  • [on her friendship with Will.i.am who convinced her to go solo] We call each other family.
  • [2003; as an interviewer suggests Girls Aloud seem to be having a feminist mindset] You know what? I don't know about feminism, but I may be a bit of a man-hater.
  • [2003; about her initial reaction to being chosen as a member of Girls Aloud] I was staring and staring at the same spot for over an hour. I couldn't believe it, it was all too overwhelming. I just cried and cried and cried.
  • [2012; as her interviewer told her she sometimes sounds as if she is much older] People have said that to me since I was 12 years old: 'You've got a seriously old soul on your shoulders.' I think maybe I was exposed to a lot when I was young.
  • [2003; on school] I was awful. They used to throw me out of the class. My headmaster said to me: "It will be interesting to see what you do with your life, Miss Tweedy."
  • [on Lee Jones's statue of her as the Angel of the North] Mind-blowing. It's something I can show my grandkids and remind my own children of their roots. Like: 'You know that big rusty angel that Mammy was painted as?' That's special.
  • [2003; on what she expected life as a pop star to be like] I just knew it had to be hard work - nothing so good could be that easy.
  • [2003] Do you know when they call us [Girls Aloud] pop puppets and things like that? They don't insult us, they insult the people who paid money to vote for us, and buy our stuff.
  • [2003] It's more difficult if you weren't in a relationship before the band, definitely. You don't know whether they're with you for who you are or what you are, really.
  • [2003; on her ex-boyfriend's and Sarah Harding's ex-boyfriend's kiss-and-tells] The worst thing is you can't defend yourself. You just have to get a tougher skin, laugh it off.
  • [on Girls Aloud's break feeling necessary for all members] Because we got together so young, we needed to grow as young women. We were kind of one personality towards the end. We needed some space as humans.
  • [2012; on barely drinking anymore] Being drunk in this industry and being drunk on the street are two totally different things.
  • [2012] I'd love a massive family. I'm from a big family. I've got 10 nieces and nephews.
  • [2012; on what quality she values most in a person] Loyalty. Someone who is always there, not judging you, regardless of what situation you're in.
  • [2012; on her ultimate single goal] To be happy.
  • [2003; on Girls Aloud opposing to the first suggestion of their second single] We're the artists. If we don't want to do something, we're not going to to do it.
  • [2012; on the rumour that Nadine Coyle was signing up for the next Celebrity Big Brother, and whether she herself would do so] Would I shite! But nor would she.
  • [on whether her near-death experience was more frightening in retrospect] Absolutely. It takes a long time mentally to come to terms with it. As it's happening, you're just going through it. Looking back, you think: wow, that was really near.
  • [2003] The stupidest thing was when Pete Waterman said we weren't singing on our single. How did he think he was going to get away with that when people heard us singing live on TV for 10 weeks?
  • I just wanted to wake up in the morning and not have 30 strange men sitting outside my door. They would follow us (her and Ashley) all day and all night. I had no freedom.
  • [2012; asked what she makes of the word chav, she shrugs] I'm a chav, aren't I?
  • [2003] As soon as it [being a pop star] gets boring, get out of it, I say. You can be trudging along in an unhappy job and the years just go like that. [she clicks her fingers] When that happens, get out. But it's not boring now.
  • [on a dream she had about Prince Harry] Oh yeah, I married him in me dream, didn't I?
  • [on Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson] I don't know who she and her scabby boyfriend think they are. He's a posing idiot who looks like a girl. And she's not even gorgeous. She's a nasty little piece of work with a fat head.
  • [Cheryl captioning a picture of Kimberley Walsh] Wife material!
  • [Girls Aloud's cover of "Jump (For My Love)"] was the point when we realized everything we'd been doing was quite down and moody [...] and that's not what people wanted.
