Cheryl & Liam holding hands
Now that she’s not with her husband(s) anymore, can we go back to calling Cheryl Tweedy Cheryl Tweedy? Officially her name is Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and the UK papers are still calling her that. Eventually she’s going to change it though, right? Well, she did stick with Cheryl Cole for a long time…
Meanwhile, half of you, maybe more, are all like, who the f-ck are you on about, Lainey?
I know. It’s been a long time since I cared about Cheryl. And now I’m caring about Cheryl because Cheryl is dating One Direction’s Liam Payne. They stepped out together in London last night holding hands after dinner. And her ma was there too. It’s been just two or three weeks now that their situation has been confirmed. As you can imagine, fans have gone into crisis mode. Because Cheryl was a judge on X-Factor when Liam first auditioned in 2008; he was 14 at the time. And now he’s 22 and she’s 32 and…
Is it weird?
I feel like it depends on context. The context on X-Factor is finding talent. So if you’re a judge on that panel, you’re looking at a contestant as a potential star and not as, you know, a student. At least that’s how I see it. You?
Ps. What’s a 10 year age difference when 40+ year old Leonardo DiCaprio’s range is 19-25 max?
