Cheryl brands people “ignorant” in new interview


Cheryl, Cheryl, Cheryl…

Or should we say Cheryl Fernandez-Versini?

The X Factor judge has been hitting the headlines for all of the wrong reasons this week – and today is no exception!

Cheryl has now hit out at people not using her full and correct title in a new interview with Marie Claire.

The singer, who looks stunning in the shoot, branded people who cannot get her full name right as “ignorant”: “People are so ignorant about it, they just start calling me Cheryl, but I’ll take that, whatever.”

Hmm, doesn’t sound like she’ll take it very graciously though – does it?!

Cheryl was born Cheryl Tweedy before taking on the married name of Cole, but chose to keep the ‘Cheryl Cole’ moniker following her divorce from footballer Ashley Cole in 2010.

However, following her marriage to Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini during the summer, Cheryl chose to take on the name Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and has hit out at anyone still calling her by her old names. 

The pop star told Marie Claire that changing her name just seemed like the right thing to do: "It's come quite naturally, you know."
