Cher Lloyd admits she was 'so confused' with herself on the X Factor
Cher Lloyd has conceded that her appearance on the X Factor might have come at the wrong time.
The singer starred on the TV show in 2010 aged just 16 and she developed a bratty reputation during the series.
However, the Brit told the Daily Star that she was "confused" during the show as she teetered on the cusp of growing into a woman.
She said: "I have fond memories of The X Factor but the experience was way too quick. I could've done with maybe leaving it a couple of years before I went on because I was so confused with myself.
"I didn't know who I wanted to be or what I was doing it for. Things would be extremely different if I was going on the show now. But then again I've learned so much that I feel that I can really take control of my career and am better for it."
Lloyd added that she has now become more mature, saying:
"A 16-year-old girl isn't going to be experienced enough to cope with some of those things I went through. I've no excuses, but everybody goes through that stage where their behaviour isn't the best. I'm a different person now and much more confident in myself and my songs. I can speak up and say what I want now."
