Cheryl Cole: England’s Favourite
POSTED BY ADMIN ON 6TH JUNE 2010 IN CELEBRITIES
If there is one woman in England who has been in the news very often lately, it is Cheryl Cole. We all know her from the band Girls Aloud and/or from her husband Ashley Cole. Even though her marriage with the soccer player did not last forever, Cheryl Cole is seen as the new queen in WAG land. Victoria Beckham might have been the standard bearer of the typical WAG, but Cheryl is clearly capturing the world whether she has a soccer player alongside of her or not. How come Cheryl is so successful and where did it all start?
Cheryl Cole Tweedy was born in Newcastle on the 30th of June in 1983. When she was 11 years old, her parents split up. Cheryl grew up with her little brother and her three half-brothers. The family lived in council estate and was rather poor. But there was one thing very important to Cheryl: dancing. At a very young age, Cheryl joined the royal ballet and she made quite a lot of money as a model. A little later, she participated in dancing shows on TV.
In 2002, Cheryl auditioned for Popstars: The Rivals and had the audience on her side. This adventure ended up in her ultimate goal: being a member of the girl band Girls Aloud. This girl band has been very popular. Their first single, Sound of the Underground, became number one in the charts in the UK and was also quite successful internationally. Girls Aloud still exists, but the girls took a break to work on their solo careers. It is the intention to reunite this year.
Cheryl used the time for her solo career very well. In 2009, her solo album Three Words came out and it was a success in the UK and Ireland. This album was made with the help of Will.i.am (member of the Black Eyed Peas), who is said to have his eye on the gorgeous Cheryl. One thing is for sure: they will see each other a lot, since Cheryl will be performing as supporting act at the concerts of the Black Eyed Peas. And at the end of this year, Cheryl‚Äôs second album will come out.
But Cheryl is not only a singer: she is also a member of the jury of X Factor. This made her popularity even more increase. According to the program writer, Cheryl is adored so much because the audience can relate to her. Of course it is not all roses for Cheryl, but she seems to pull through very well and by that she gains respect. Cheryl Cole has the status of England‚Äôs sweetheart.¬†¬†
