Cheryl isn’t holding back when it comes to haters.
On Sunday, the singer, 35, performed her latest single “Love Made Me Do It” live on the “X Factor” but the performance earned mixed reviews — particularly, the moment when she licked her tattooed hand while singing the lyrics, “The ink on my skin, is all the places I’ve been.”
Twitter questioned the gesture’s appropriateness, with many viewers actually writing to the broadcast network to complain, prompting a spokesperson from the network to release a statement: “We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules before deciding whether or not to investigate.”
Despite the backlash, Cheryl is sticking by her performance.
In a Twitter post, the mom of one says she’s “okay” with not pleasing every single viewer.
“Love Made Me Do It” is Cheryl’s first single since welcoming her son Bear with now-ex Liam Payne.
