US fans love Cher's accent, says father
FOLLOWING reports that Malvern's Cher Lloyd was snubbed on American TV over fears audiences would not understand her accent, her father says that is far from the case.
Darren Lloyd said the Americans love her Malvern accent and said she has done several radio interviews which have all gone without a hitch.
His comments come after it was claimed that Cher was snubbed after an appearance on Dancing With The Stars, where she performed her single, Want U Back, but unlike previous guests, was not given any air time with co-host Tom Bergeron to promote it.
But Mr Lloyd said the former X Factor star was never supposed to be interviewed on the show and was only there to perform.
He added: “She’s done lots of radio interviews.
They always go really well. They love her accent.
She’s never been asked to repeat herself and the interviews always go really smoothly.”
Cher appears to be going down a storm in the US, and the acid test will be to see how album Sticks and Stones fares following its release this week.
Its 11 tracks feature her British number one debut single Swagger Jagger, as well as With Ur Love and the platinum disc Want U Back, which sold more than a million copies on its American release in May.
