Looks like this weekend she alone will hold the record for most British female number one singles. I like her but she just has people pick songs for her and records an album in a week.

Currently the record is shared with Rita ora and geri halliwell. Ora has an amazing voice. Halliwell wrote lots of her songs and even signs many of them so her deaf fans can enjoy them.

I dont understand how all these people can be above madonna who has been aroubd for decades
and no I don't like the thought of someone who is violent being a mainstream influence on young children

More successful than Adele? Are a lot of her No.1's with Girls Aloud?

katienana Thu 06-Nov-14 07:14:03

so has she sold the most records? surely Adele is more successful in those terms

Is the most number ones the best measure of success?

Tinkerball Thu 06-Nov-14 07:20:43

Madonna isn't British Stealth. They must be including her Girls Aloud sales surely? Or the world really has gone mad!!!

YABU for calling her a musician.

RobinSparkles Thu 06-Nov-14 07:24:59

Geri Halliwell should have done everyone a favour and just signed her songs in the first place then no one would have been subjected to her warbling!

Im positive adele is more successful, also mel C from spice Girls is a record breaking song writer, perhaps lily alleb too?

YANBU about Cheryl's success. What about Leona Lewis though? Surely she's had more hits?

Apart from anything else Cheryl is vile and a complete triumph of style over substance. She can't sing for toffee. Her solo success has mainly been due to her appearance on the X Factor, I think. One of the main reasons why she was so eager to return. I never bought all that 'national treasure' bullshit. I prefer my national treasures not to have a conviction for GBH.

goshhhhhh Thu 06-Nov-14 07:59:11

I don't think I can remember let alone hum one of her songs....

curiousgeorgie Thu 06-Nov-14 08:01:09

Is it just about the most number ones? Because I'm sure she hasn't eclipsed Adele etc in sales figures?

bloodyteenagers Thu 06-Nov-14 08:02:28

Where are you getting this information from? She is being slammed for miming again.
Adele is number one, and everything I have seen Cheryl isn't even in the top 10.

'You are being unreasonable for calling her a musician.' grin

WooWooOwl Thu 06-Nov-14 08:08:43

I like Cheryl. She can sing, she looks good, and she has some decent songs. That's all I'm really looking for from these people.

If she has sold the most singles then well done to her, it doesn't take anything away from any other successful pop stars.

She is a successful product but she is not a musician.

"She's quite pretty in a plastic sort of way" said DS16

But toriuk I thought Taylor swift is the most powerful successful woman on the earth? You said so yourself yesterday. Repeatedly. Are you just wanting a reaction by any chance?

ginnycreeper5 Thu 06-Nov-14 08:17:57

True what they say - A female with a pretty face will always get on in life better than a female with a plain face. Regardless of talent. it's not right

noddyholder Thu 06-Nov-14 08:20:07

Taylor swift has more talent in her little finger than Cheryl Cole.

toriuk Thu 06-Nov-14 08:25:17

Time called ts one of the most powerful people.

The British buying public are making gbh girl one of the most successful.

CrashDiveOnMingoCity Thu 06-Nov-14 08:34:30

She is pretty but then again, if you have squillions to spend on make up artists, hair stylists, personal trainers etc, many women would look as pretty (if not more). wink I find Adele more conventionally attractive

Housesoftheholy Thu 06-Nov-14 08:55:02

Cheryls songs are just awful, truly awful. I don't mind some pop fluff like Katy Perry and Taylor swift, but Cheryl's music really is dreadful

Patrickstarisabadbellend Thu 06-Nov-14 08:59:38

I can't stand Cheryl whatshername. She makes me cringe whenever I see her on the TV confused
