'Stifled': X Factor star Cher Lloyd has apparently told Simon Cowell she wants to try and break America in her own way
She has been in Hollywood for only a few hectic days, but as is her precocious way, Cher Lloyd is already proving herself a natural at embracing America’s basic starry conventions.
First and foremost, there is, of course, the obligatory wearing of sunglasses (indoors as well as out).
Then there is her new hair colour - bright red, as opposed to her more familiar dark tresses.
Fitting in: Out in Los Angeles yesterday, Cher showed off her tiny figure in a cropped top and jogging bottoms as she went on yet another shopping spree
Oh, and to round off the ‘too cool for school’ makeover, she has also had a large tattoo done on her right forearm (proudly displayed, thanks to rolled-up shirt sleeves).
The end result may have looked like a parody of teenage rebellion, but the Worcestershire 17-year-old has pronounced her new look as ‘well sick’.
Which, in street slang, translates roughly as being extremely happy with the results.
Giggles: Cher appeared to be in good spirits as she picked up some goods at the Beverley Centre shopping mall
Lovin' it: Looking like a 'proper' celebrity, Cher clutched the obligatory Starbucks iced drink as she hit the shops
Equally important in her bid to be taken seriously as a celebrity, Cher has taken like a duck to water when it comes to having staff at her beck and call.
