The 'Want U Back' star was grateful the likes of Tulisa and Example stood up for her following incident last month.

Cher Lloyd has thanked her fellow artists for voicing their support after she was bottled on stage at V Festival last month.

An audience member threw a bottle at Cher during her set at the Chelmsford leg of the event, triggering condemnation from artists including Example, Tulisa Contostavlos and Professor Green.

Speaking for the first time about the incident, Cher said she was grateful for their kind words, but admitted that despite being upset she had not taken the incident personally.

"Just to step back for a minute and realise that there's so many good things going on in my career at the moment," she told Sugarscape.

"We've got everything in the US, we've got this fragrance in the UK. I mean, there shouldn't be anything that's going to get me down.

"At the time I was upset about it, but the amount of support that artists have shown me and it's made me realise that it wasn't personal, it was actually something that happens to all the artists."

Cher added: "I heard it happened to Beyoncé. Now if that can happen to Beyoncé, I don't know why it was a big deal about me."

The singer is currently enjoying huge success in America, with her single 'Want U Back' selling more than a million copies.

Cher returned to the UK this month to launch her new perfume in London today (3rd September).
