Celebrity News: Cheryl Cole, booted off US X-Factor in favour of Nicole Schwarzenegger, let her body do the talking today when a raunchy video shoot for new single ‘Fog On The Tyne’ revealed a startling new tattoo.
While media speculation blamed her geordie accent, Paul Abdul, racist yanks, her hair-do, Lee Harvey Oswald and Avon Barksdale, the new tattoo shows there is no doubt in Cheryl’s mind about the real culprit.
“Cheryl thinks she’s been manipulated,” said one insider. “Cowell’s been all up in her grill, getting her over here, pumpin’ her up like a turkey on thanksgiving – just so as he could fire her ass, and make hisself a whole lotta publicité.”
“He be actin’ like a pimp – an now that he’s slashed her face with a razor, he’s just strollin’ off in his ‘gator shoes, like she ain’t worth sheeeeet.”
But it looks like the plucky princess of pop is not going down without a fight.
“The tattoo is just Phase One,” says another insider, who is, frankly, a bit further in than the first insider.
“Phase Two is her own talent show. It’s going to be called ‘Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cole’ or ‘Cole It Want You Want’ or something, where people come on and do impressions of Simon Cowell.”
“Phase Three involves Paula Abdul, some household tools and a hungry badger – but I can’t really talk about it.”
