Cheryl Cole has been speaking out over the pressures of the last 12 months which saw the X Factor Judge divorce husband Ashley, battle with Malaria and come under fire during the X Factor shows.
Talking to Elle magazine, Cole explains: 'I have taken so much s**t, I’ve stopped listening to other people. I have had enough.
'There's only so much you can cope with and then you either allow it to swallow you up or you say, "Sod this". I have had it with negativity and bitchiness.
'I want people to like my music but I couldn't give a s**t about what they think of me. Take it or leave it. I do not care.'
Talking about the support from family and friends Cole told the publication;
‘I’m lucky in that I've got family and friends to turn to. I realise now that it's not a bad thing to lean on people and accept support. You get to find out who your real friends are when the s**t hits the fan.'
Despite the events of 2010 Cheryl still managed to bag herself a No.1 single and album and as she grows closer to friend Derek Hough, could this be the year of new romance?
