The 'Want U Back' star says her comment has been taken out of context.
Cher Lloyd has apologised to Cheryl Cole over comments she made about her singing voice.
Earlier this week, the 'Want U Back' star said she would like to perform with her former The X Factor mentor, but only if she sings live.
Cheryl then appeared to respond to the slur, posting the hashtag "#unappreciationisugly" on Twitter.
Appearing on ITV's Daybreak this morning, Cher backtracked on her comment and said she felt sorry if Cheryl had been left offended.
"Basically I said something on radio which I shouldn’t have said and it wasn’t intended to sound as bad as it did," she said.
When told that it sounded like she was being negative about Cheryl, Cher replied: "I wasn't doing that all, I was saying I would love to perform with her and I made a little joke about only if she sang live.
"I think it all got blown out of proportion. I just want to say sorry to her if she found that offensive. But at the end of the day, she is the person who got me to where I am today."
Cheryl acted as Cher's mentor when she appeared on The X Factor in 2010.
Cher is currently promoting her new single 'Want U Back', while Cheryl is expected to release her new solo album later this year.
