When asked about The X Factor, the big man singled out the 17-year-old and praised her performances of his hits Hard Knock Life and Empire State Of Mind.
“I was very impressed with her version of Hard Knock Life. It should be a track on her debut album and I would happily add my lyrics to it,” he said, hinting that he’d like her on his label. “I could get myself, Kanye West, Beyoncé and Rihanna all working on her debut album and that would make it an automatic hit.”

But it hasn’t been all good news for Cher as she reportedly made enemies in the X Factor house after mentor Cheryl Cole gave her a pair of £370 Dolce & Gabbana boots, but gave nothing to her other protégés Katie Waissel and Rebecca Ferguson.
“Cheryl has acted more like a big sister than a judge to Cher. It’s starting to irk the other girls, particularly Rebecca who feels overlooked as the best singer,” a source told the News of the World.

“Cheryl keeps inviting Cher into her dressing room for girlie chats. But it really wound the others up when Cher came back clutching a pair of their mentor’s own heels. The others are lucky if they get five minutes with her – Cher gets Cheryl’s old designer clobber!”
