Fashion Friday: Cheryl Cole’s Three Words

Cheryl Cole, Three Words

We’ve got three questions for you:

1. Do you like Cheryl Cole as a blonde?

2. Is the new video for Three Words fashion/edgy/artsy cool or too try-hard?

3. What’s your level of Cheryl Cole media coverage saturation – are you at the limit or do you love everything and anything she does?

    Whoever said she was starting to pop up in the States is not telling the truth. No one knows who she is over here and I'm glad. I only know of her or her band because I use to live in London and Girls Aloud was huge with the young girls. I hope she doesn't try her hand in the States because it's way too much competition over here. She should stay in the UK where she'll be better tolerated because I think if she tried to become famous over here, she'll fail. Leona Lewis is talented and beautiful and even her recent album has failed over here. So unless she can walk on water or eat fire or something really spectacular, she will not make it here.

    • joe simons says:

      well predicted Stephanie.

      you were spot on. At least in the USA they can spot rubbish and talent created in a production studio…

      knock knock whos there
      cheryl who…

  2. Rusty (Mrs Clemens Fritz) says:

    gah, the idea of solo Cheryl makes me gag. And I’m American and adore Girls Aloud. Maybe that’s why the idea of solo Cheryl makes me gag.

    BTW, I think she looks horrible as a blonde. She looks too washed out.

    I don’t want to watch the video.

  3. kaya says:

    Seems to me this girl had a lot of public sympathy at one point.

    I don't really have time to watch the whole thing, but the first 45 seconds were boh-ring so I doubt I'll bother to watch the rest.

    She seems like another over-fabricated phenomenon. I doubt she cares as long as the checks keep coming.

    • BN says:

      You all leave Cheryl alone!!

      She's like a modern day Princess Di, the nation's sweetheart, the jewel in Britain's crown etc

      (i don't really believe that but if you girls are anything like my missus you'll all be screaming at your screens as you read my comments)

      You girls are so easy to wind up.

      Great site btw, you're my guilty pleasure :D

    • Gina says:

      i love everything abt this comment. the 'i dont really have time to watch the whole thing' seriously made me laugh. n i thnk its sooo funny how cheryl says her absolute passion is singing…lol ohhh gawd. anyway like kaya said, as long as the money keeps flowing in.

  4. katy says:

    I think shes trying to look like the blonde Coco from the band she slated as looking tarty on X factor this year.
    The song is drab and boring.
    I think she is far too overated. She is an average singer at best and although pretty, it is an exageration to say she is the most beautiful on the planet. When she opens her mouth she is the same old chava thug who became famous overnight and so called nations sweetheart courtesy of cheating Cashley. I am sick of all the hype and brainwashing by the media.

  5. Josedirtybitonthesid says:

    Too much Cheryl on everything these days……………she's a talentless chav who advertises shampoo when her head is covered in hair extensions!!! She's also married to one of football most vile men. A horrid couple.

  6. Moys says:

    She definitely has no talent. Her singing voice is really average. Nobody seems to know Cheryl Cole outside of the UK (I'm living in South Korea but I'm Canadian). This song shows just how badly Will.I.Am has fallen off as a producer, but it feels like he gave Cheryl his b-side junk and told her to work with it. He definitely wouldn't do this to Lady Gaga if he had a chance to work with her. Oh, and the video, trying to hard.

  7. Susanna says:

    I wish I lived somewhere where she wasn't all over the papers…

  8. Nina says:

    She's overrated. She has no talent, she's just pretty. Like most WAGS she get's to much attention, for no bloody reason. Whereas some other WAGS do what they do, but don't have the camera's up their bum. She's not popular here in Canada, but you know what? I'm tired of seeing her everywhere.

    Overrated, si.

  9. freddiegirl says:

    1. No. Like most natural brunettes (Jessica Alba and Biel; I'm talking to you…) she looks better brunette or with highlights.

    2. Haven't watched it, don't plan to.

    3. Yes. She's starting to show up here in the States. Like we don't have enough overproduced entertainers that can't actually sing…stares sideways at Brittany Spears… She's a gorgeous, gorgeous girl but for the life of me…how did a mouthy girl from Newcastle who was known for slugging a bathroom attendant become the UK's sweetheart? *shrugs*

  10. Jenna says:

    I think this song is an amazing cure for insomnia. Even Will i am looks bored! It just reminds me of a poor mans Lady Gaga.

    Totally agree about her being 'pretty' but I dont like the fakeness. WAGS here are too fake. Italian WAGS are naturally amazing. Their whole lifestyle is better than ours. Plus, i cant imagine the media being as interested in them, as ours are. I really dont like the song. I really dont like the try hard video either. But for some reason it will probably be number one.

  11. teamtoto says:

    i kinda like the blonde….

  12. keziah says:

    1) she looks ilke shakira as a blonde.

    2) video leave a bit to be desired, songs not that great tho is it.

    3) She gets absolutely no coverage in Australia so i only see her on football sites as a WAG. So I dont mind :-)

  13. jaz says:

    yeah, pretty in the UK. Only.. Take her to Italy (or any WAGs) she would be average.

    yeah, find her overrated. Pretty but not special.

    No, I`m not jelaous. Look at her old pic… And it`s obvious.

    Mrs.Beckham copycat…

  14. allie says:

    this song is really bad.

  15. Elise says:

    I don't like the blond hair, but I do like the song, mostly. If they lost the heavy dance beats and remixed it with more guitar, it might be awesome. It sounds alot like Snow Patrol- the guitar in the beginning especially, and the song itself reminds me of the SP song 'Set The Fire To The Third Bar'. But the dance stuff sort of ruins it. And I haven't hit Cheryl-overload yet. lol

  16. agger♥lover says:

    1. no she looks horrible. she should dye her hair back and look pretty. she has nothing, else i mean cashly's her husband

    2. didn't watch it don't plan to

    3. there is nothing like 'WAG' where i come from. here they don't care for the athlete farless the wife/girlfriend.

  17. autumnmaple101 says:

    No no no blonde looks terrible on Cheryl. Ermm when I was in the UK last week, I was a little sick to death on the never-ending media coverage surrounding her, particularly those focussing on her supposed marriage problems with Ashley. Love her, but please; I need a break from her.

  18. Lolinha says:

    Yup, a washed out Lady Gaga.

    The only time I ever come across any Cheryl "news" is on this site, so I'm not that bothered.

  19. becca (mrs lampard!) says:

    I dont like her blonde, just doesnt suit her!

  20. goalkeeperette says:

    1) No, too try-hard Lady GaGa.

    2) No, too try-hard Lady GaGa.

    3) I always thought she gets way too much media coverage for saying and doing what she says and does.

    Back to the music/the video: The only thing I like about it are the split screen effects, it's something you don't see too often. The rest is just plain weird. Am I the only one who thinks that neither lyrics nor music nor video fit together in any way? She's singing about meeting the love of her life. Who the hell wrote the lyrics and said: "Wow let's combine it with some sleepy electronic music and weird costumes and dancers that make no sense at all!" And is a part of this piece of crap, I can't believe it.

    Cheryl should stop trying to be edgy or pretending to be a real artist and stick to her pretty-pop-bird image because it's getting a tad bit ridiculous.

    • Regiane says:

      the music/the video part = someone read my thoughts… ha!ha!ha! perfect! i couldn’t have said it better!!

  21. FootballerChick43-"Mrs.Ballack" says:

    1. Not a fan of her as a blonde. She is a gorgeous brunette.
    2. I actually like the vid. It’s interesting – very, very artsy.
    3. I like Cheryl Cole, and since I’m American, I don’t get very much of her, so really there’s no way for me to give a valid opinion on the topic.

  22. Venice says:

    I have little patience for WAGs in general. I want to know as little as possible about them, unless they have a worthy reason to be known about. I find Cheryl Cole beautiful in a very synthetic way, so she’s not interesting to me.

  23. Lena says:

    1. No, she looks terrible as a blonde.
    2. It’s trying too hard.
    3. I passed that point ages ago when she started to sell details about Ash’s alleged affair. I mean, if he did it, leave, otherwise, stfu about it. If you want public sympathy because he went elsewhere, leave his arse and then whine about it. Don’t whine about him (and move your mother in, because that’s what all men want, right? I mean nothing says “I trust you” like having a babysitter) while you’re holding his hand and saying everythings great. She needs to shut up and look pretty, that’s all she’s good for.

  24. Ella says:

    The blond doesn’t suit her at all. She looks totally washed out. I haven’t seen her video as I’m in the states and she’s never broken through over here, (or Girls Aloud). Maybe I’ll look it up on YouTube or something.

  25. Liz says:

    1. Doesnt suit her what so ever. Shes trying far to hard to stand out, and it looks desperate. (she looks gorgeous her NATURAL Colour, and weight)
    2. The video to try-hard for me. And the song is very poor imho (sorry)
    3. As for the Media coverage, well she is stunning but sadly thats all shes become so famous for (and of course sympathy). I believe if she wasnt so attractive the backlash from her staying with a cheating husband would have been much greater! She isnt a fantastic singer, and I dont think she has the character to go solo. So for me she’s totally blown out of all preportion, and its getting a tad boring. But its the usual from the British Media, when it suits them they’ll drag her down again (so predictable).

    • Liz says:

      I agree, they will drag her down, it's only a matter of time.

      And although I like some songs on her album, she just should stick with Girls Aloud. Nadine is the only one with the chops to go solo. The rest are best as a group. It's fine if they do solo STUFF, like TV, movies, modelling, fashion, just not MUSIC.

      • Liz says:

        Agreed completely! Girl groups ALWAYS make the same mistakes as the ones that come before them, they dont know a good thing when they have it. With girls aloud she can have a lot longer spell in the public eye than going solo. But they never learn they all want to be THE star, but the truth is they just dont have enough talent to go solo. It will be a short phase and then nomore….the usual i.e Geri Halliwell :P

  26. Kristen (Mrs. Sebast says:

    1) She looks too washed out as a blonde. :S Meh, don't like it.

    2) Haven't watched it yet… don't plan to either

    3) Being in the US, we don't have much footy coverage let alone WAG coverage, but I am getting really annoyed with her plastered on every footy/WAG related site that I go on. It's driving me muy loco. :S

  27. tammyv says:

    wow.. holy attempting to channel Gaga…yikes,

  28. laila says:

    1 I dont like her as a blond too
    2 it looks like a lady gaga video but less intreting .And the song….BORING!
    3 As it was already said she’s not very famous in france, actually nobody know or speaks about her.

  29. Fer_Lahm says:

    1)no, i thought she was shakira
    2)here in mexico, i think im the only one who knows who’s her

  30. Mariam says:

    1) well.. she looks like she is part of a tim burton film in that particular shade of blond… so no, it looks horrible.
    2) tried to hard
    3) yeah…. she is a bit annoying…

  31. Mrs Lampard says:

    nobody knows her in my country, i don't listen to her music, to me she's just ashley's wife. she is kind of all over the media there, but i just skip the articles about her, i just watch her outfits and that's all

  32. bitterlemon says:

    1. No

    2. too hard

    3. She’s not really well known here in America

  33. KateAlonso says:

    1. No
    2. too try-hard
    3. I’m at the limit

  34. Dutch says:

    1. no the blonde makes her look v.pale and she jst looks gorgeous with her brunette

    2. I dont get the concept of contemporary dancers in the vid. And am not feeling this song right now, maybe after a while it might grow on me but right now it sounds really dull and boring.

    3. Yes there is a bit too much of cheryl but i would rather see her gorgeous face everywhere rathen than certain other ‘artists’ lol

  35. Camille says:

    I really only have an answer to #3: I've had quite enough news and information about Cheryl Cole, and I could do with a break.

  36. Lana says:

    Don’t like her as a blond
    The video is more artsy than try-hard for me.
    The media coverage – too much, sometimes it starts to annoy

  37. Liz says:

    Let me just say this first. I ADORE Cheryl Cole. Girls Aloud are my favourite band of all time and I even named my car Cheryl :p

    1. No I don't like her as a blonde.

    2. Hate the song, hate the video.

    3. I am in Australia, so it's not bad. But I do check Daily Mail and the Girls Aloud websites regularly, so if I hear anything about Cheryl, it's because I looked for it.

    LOVE YOU CHEZ but your song is naff.

  38. carly says:

    To be honest, I don’t have the patience to watch the video and I don’t want my ears to bleed right now…
    Nobody knows who Cheryl Cole is in Portugal, so I’m a bit protected from the overload.
    Personally I think she loses all her charm as a blonde.

  39. Lily says:

    1- Platine blond doesn't suit her, but I am not sure it was supposed to, I guess it is meant to be arty, or sth

    2- I think the video is pretty cool but the song is really bad, her voice too, it is a common pop song with nothing particular and she is not a edgy/art singer she is a singer who won a TV show, is part of one of a "commercial" band, I don't blame her, it is just not her

    3 being French, I don't see her on TV, I don't like her a lot but I am always waiting to see how she is going to be dressed at the X-factor

    I don't think she has any artistic talent except being really beautiful but she must have really good counsellers/advisers

  40. Merel says:

    1. No, it washed her out.

    2. Try-hard.

    3. Enough is enough. Cheryl is a great looking woman but like I said; enough is enough. And should be enough.

  41. Amy MUFC ( : says:

    she dosnt suite blonde

  42. bubbly_cheryl says:

    1) the blonde do does not suit her at all, the only blonde she did do well, was in the 'i'll stand by you'' (sort of a biscuit/ wine blonde)

    2) the video for 3 words is not good at all, the song already makes me want to sleep (listen to it with headphones and you'll see what i mean), and all the revolving and then the blonde wig just makes me dizzy, (i want my bed)

    3) cheryl cole is everywere, her l'oreal ad… what can i say?

  43. Tash says:

    1. No. And is it just me or does she look exactly like Shakira, in the she wolf video, with that wig?!

    2. The video is retarded. If its an effort on her part to be less average and ordinary, and more Lady GaGa-like, well..shes failed.

    3. Im sick of it. Im sick of seeing her everywhere. Shes a totally non talented chav, who cant sing to save her life.

  44. HiL says:

    1. Absolutely not. She is beautiful as a brunette. blond is not for her.

    2. The video is nice.. kinda weird to be honest XD and this is not my favorite kind of music so umm..

    3. Like carly I am protected as well XD but she is everywhere but i don't mind so much.
