Perez Hilton: 'Cheryl Needs To Do More To Crack US'

He's praised her 2010 XF act Cher Lloyd when offering Cole advice...

US celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has stated that Cheryl Cole must put in more time in order for her to be a success in America.

Hilton addressed Chezza's attempt at cracking the US in Skype interview with MSN, where he compared the Girls Aloud star's efforts to her former X Factor act, Cher Lloyd.

When asked about the possibility of the Call My Name singer being successful Stateside, Perez replied: "Do I think Cheryl Cole will ever make it big in America?

"I think there are a lot of factors at play there, but the biggest one is if she is willing to devote the time necessary to break as a musical artist in America."

He continued: "Unlike the UK, we don't have national radio here that's relevant - it's a lot harder to get your songs on the radio across the United States.

"So it takes a lot of going to the stations and shaking hands, performing small shows."

Hilton added: "That's actually something that Cher Lloyd did do and did it quite well, and Cher has had a great 2012 in America."

As well as offering Cheryl some advice, Hilton went on to reveal what he is looking forward to in 2013 - stating he would prefer not to write about troubled actress Lindsay Lohan so much.

Perez said: “I want to be talking less about Lindsay Lohan, and that hopefully she doesn’t die.”

Hilton recently clashed with Demi Lovato on Twitter over LiLo following her recent assault arrest, where The X Factor USA judge defended Lindsay.
