Cheryl is back with one epic summer banger – but after a few years off from the industry the entertainer has revealed that she has fallen in love with her career again and it’s all thanks to her two-year-old son, Bear.
Cheryl welcomed Bear in March 2017 with ex-partner Liam Payne but she tells Metro.co.uk that the birth of her first child changed everything and allowed her to gain ‘genuine perspective on life’ leading her to never say never to anything again.
‘I think when I had the baby everything changed and I have genuine perspective on life and what’s real and what’s important,’ she says, ‘and a new found respect and love for what I do and how much fun it is… I have fallen in love with my career again.’
Admitting that she felt more pressure before Bear, she says that she was ‘overworked and underwhelmed’ and that her break was ‘long long overdue’ that helped her to ‘reset my mind and remind myself what it was I loved about it in the first place’.
‘I feel less pressure,’ she says.
‘I have what’s really important and this is what I love to do so [Bear] has reminded me of the fun side of it.
‘As long as you are releasing the music you love and the fans are connecting that’s all that really matters, and then I go home from work to my chubby-fingered baby that’s like “come here come here” and all is good with the world.’
Bear turned two in March and Cheryl, like any other mum, can’t help but talk about him.
‘He’s very very cute,’ she laughs, admitting that he’s not yet speaking ‘full sentences but he can say words and we can communicate better… when he’s not having tantrums’.
‘It’s just frustration isn’t it?’ she says of those terrible twos, ‘because they know what they want but they can’t tell you what they want and they don’t understand why they can’t have what they want, “why can’t I put my hand on the burning oven, mother?”‘
The 35-year-old singer released her follow-up single to the divisive Love Made Me Do It on 31 May and it became an instant smash among music fans.
Co-written by Cheryl and former Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts, she insists it wasn’t about any of her exes, and that it was another writer on the song who was the one ‘having boyfriend troubles at the time’.
‘We were gossiping and listening to her stories and finding things we all related to, and I know that if everyone in the room can relate to that one subject if you release it that’s how people will hear it as well, so it was really fun,’ she says.
And yes, she knew it would be a hit: ‘There is always a vibe in the room… it was so much fun to record that I knew people would relate.’
