British pop star Cher Lloyd has hit back at bloggers who criticise her online, branding them "cowards".
The singer/rapper shot to fame with her controversial mash-up performances on The X Factor last year (10), and her debut single, Swagger Jagger, shot to the top of the charts in August (11).
Lloyd's stubborn attitude and rumours of diva antics have bred an army of online critics - but she's adamant she's not bothered by the negative comments.
She tells British magazine You, "The internet's an evil thing. It's full of keyboard warriors with a licence to hate, and I swear to God that if they came up and tried to say this stuff to my face, they wouldn't be able to get a word out. They're cowards."
