'Haters' nearly forced Cher Lloyd to quit pop

Poor old Cher Lloyd: just when you think you're about to make it as a big time pop star, the haters come in and try to pull you back down to their level. It's almost enough to make you want to quit pop music altogether isn't it?

Apparently so. Lloyd has been so shocked at the level of hate she's attracted for her debut single 'Swagger Jagger' that she's considered given up the pop game. The song has received doubled the number of dislikes as likes on YouTube, and she says that even an old man abused her on Twitter. It's a hard life, being in the public eye.

'I don't think they [the haters] understand what they're doing to me,' she said. 'This is what upsets me a lot and makes me think I don't even want to do this anymore.

'I was delusional because as a little girl I thought I'd become a pop star and everyone would love me. I'm not saying I don't have the best life ever, but it's been so tough.'
