The 'Sirens' singer - who shot to fame after competing on UK TV talent series 'The X Factor' in 2010 - has hit back at her former show colleague after he labelled her difficult to work with when she appeared on the competition aged 16.
She told Digital Spy: ''It's something I find very strange, especially from an older gentleman against a young girl. ''But I'm much older and much more experienced, so it would be good to have a conversation with him now.
''To make a comment about someone you worked with two or three years ago who was 16 years old at the time, it was a little bit unnecessary. I must be on his mind. Bless.''
Luckily for Louis, 61 - who has appeared as a judge on 'The X Factor' since 2004 - Cher insists she ''never'' holds a grudge against her critics.
She explained: ''It's nice to see that people aren't getting stuck in the past. I feel the same with people I've met... that have really been quite harsh and forceful and a bit mean to me. I've seen them for the person they are now and the way they are treating me. I never hold a grudge.
''It's so much easier for me now because I feel if you're a happy and content person, there is no reason to be on the defensive.''
She said: ''Thank God for that. I will be watching this time - I can't say that I was majorly tuned in before.
''I really do feel it has been missing those judges. Their ratings will be up sky-high as soon as those two came back. The show hasn't been the same without Simon and Cheryl.''
