She’s already conquered TV and music in Britain, and now Cheryl Cole has landed on U.S. shores, and seems to be making just as good of an impression as she does in the UK. The Girls Aloud star and X-Factor judge is taking a break from filming to record some of her solo material in Los Angeles with Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am. Cheryl landed at LAX early yesterday wearing a thigh-skimming babydoll dress, and was reportedly surprised by the level of pap and fan attention at the airport.
Cheryl is also rumored to be in town to discuss starring in an American version of X-Factor as a judge, something which mentor Simon Cowell is said to be lining up for her – as long as she loses her Geordie accent. “He’s joked about her needing elocution lessons, but in all seriousness, it’s something she’ll have to consider,” reports Now magazine. Judging by the effort she made to look stunning after an 11-hour flight, we’d say the problems of a pesky regional accent wouldn’t be too much. [Photos: Splash News Online]
