Why Fans Love Cher Lloyd

Cher Lloyd is a British pop artist and rapper who placed fourth on The X Factor in 2010. She has already created two successful albums in her career, Sticks and Stones and Sorry I’m Late, with a third album on the way soon. Cher has supported Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato at shows in the U.S., as well as going on two of her own headlining tours. She is also featured in Demi Lovato’s track Really Don’t Care. Cher’s 2010 song Want U Back was a huge worldwide hit, selling over 3 million copies. She has already accomplished so much at the young age of 23, and she’s not slowing down any time soon!

Her music is well-known for its sassy, confident, and tell-it-like-it-is nature, especially within tracks where she shows off her rapping abilities! However, Cher also has a very honest, raw and vulnerable side, evident in songs such as Sirens and Goodnight. Whether swaggy, sad, sweet, or sexy, her personality and emotions always translate clearly in both her live performances and studio recordings.

One thing you can’t deny about Cher is the love she has for her fans. Her relatability and regular interaction with fans create a strong and unique bond between Cher and her supporters. On Twitter, we spoke to some of Cher’s fans, sometimes known as ‘Brats’, from around the world about why they love Cher and her music. Check out their responses below:

“I love Cher Lloyd because she’s super confident and I can relate to her in so many ways. She always speaks her mind and isn’t afraid of what people have to say. I love her music because it is also something I can relate to. Cher speaks about her past in her music and I love to know as much as I can about her and what she has been through. I have to say I think I was destined to come across her because without her I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Cher has shaped me as a person and I am so thankful to her.”

” For me, she is more than a simple artist, she is much more than a person who made these great songs from the depths of her soul…she is art. She is fabulous. She is an example to follow. And, oh god, I admire her so much. I met very good people when I was going through difficult moments…thanks to her. Because for me, she is light. She nevertheless is HERSELF. She never showed us to be someone else to get fame. She fulfilled her dream by ignoring the people who hated her. But those people do not hate her. They wanted to be like her. I mean, who would not want to be like Cher? Although she showed me it was better to be myself and Cher is right. She lights up my life so I love her.”

“I love Cher Lloyd ’cause, despite everything she has been through, she still tries to make music for us, and no one could drag her down. I think her music always has a meaning, and she always tries to talk to us through there. Also, I love how much she communicates with us– Cher always answers us on Twitter, follows us, and answers DMs, she is just awesome.”

Anne-Agathe – 16 – France (@wingslloydjh)

“I love Cher Lloyd because she is nice with everyone. She tries to talk and answer to every fan she has, and that’s a good quality I think. Also, she always smiles – every hour, every minute, every second, and when she smiles she makes me smile too. She loves her family, husband and dogs so much and that’s so cute. She sings like an angel, she deserves the world and more, every person in this world needs to know her.”

 “I love Cher Lloyd because she has inspired me ever since she appeared on The X Factor in 2010. In six years, she has achieved a lot. Her debut single, Swagger Jagger, went straight to number one, she had a top 5 album and works incredibly hard on her music. I’ve met Cher three times and she is one of the most down to earth singers but also the most underrated. I do think that she deserves more recognition because she has one of the best voices I’ve ever heard.”

“I love Cher Lloyd because she always inspired me in a good way. I am a fan since 2011, I saw her growing up and I grew up with her. I love Cher Lloyd because she taught me to be confident with my body and to not care about what people say (love me for me, I wish…). Her music is so real, she writes everything with her heart and her soul (“all that you have is your soul”). She is so down to earth and she interacts a lot with us, I can say that I am proud to be her fan. Even if she doesn’t know it, she was here when I needed someone, and that’s why I love her. Her lyrics and everything she’s said in her interviews affect me a lot. That’s why I love Cher Lloyd.”
