I like it, but it gets annoying.

I started listening to Cher Lloyd, after this song. Language: Cher sounds like she's saying, "sh-t," but says "shh," everytime.

Catchy Tune, Negative Impact

Uhg. Not a very good song. It's catchy and upbeat, but that's the extent of it. In the song, either it's showing Cher is extremely narcissistic or the girl she's portraying is. It's definitely realistic, but the fact so many girls think it's awesome for the message it carries is horrible. This is an extremely negative message. "I broke up with my boyfriend because he wasn't that cool anymore." "Now I'm seeing him with another girl, but I'm not jealous." "I want him to run back to me and forget her because I'm clearly better in style and looks." >.> .. horrible, horrible, horrible. Fun to dance to, but let me tell you, don't let your daughters look up to that like it's gospel. Or friends, even.

Catchy song from British singer

I kind of like this song; it's catchy. But it can get annoying at times. Still, it's good. This song is probably okay for kids; the s-word is implied, though ("I broke it off thinking you'd be crying/now I feel like shh looking at you flying") but Cher says "shh" instead of "s-t". Also, this song has a bad message about someone wanting to get their ex-boyfriend back just because he's happy with another girl. But it's not too serious.

Fun song.

No, thank you

I'm not posting any hate on this song, but i must warn you. This song may be catchy and well sung,but the meaning is really stupid. The song is saying that she dumped him because he wasn't good enough for her, but now she wants him back because he's happy without her. If you think that's a good message, by all means go ahead listen to it. If your concerned about your kids priorities and personality, take another look.

Worst song in history

In honest words, this is my least favorite song of all time. Cher Lloyd has the most irritating voice; it's so squeaky and over-auto-tuned. I just want to slap her in the face. The lyrics of this song imply that Cher Lloyd is a brat who is far too full of herself. She's overly confident that he'll come crawling back to her, regardless of the fact that in the song she constantly insults him. She sounds like a mixture of Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and a chipmunk with a drug addiction. Even without auto-tune, her voice is a painful sound. I heard her performing once on the Ellen DeGeneres show with no auto-tune and quickly changed the channel. She is also stating through this song that she thinks she's superior to a certain girl because of her appearance. While we're at it, why does everyone refer to Cher Lloyd as "Cher"? Cher is a completely different artist who's been around for ages, and Cher Lloyd is not! Cher and Cher Lloyd are two completely different people, kids! Get your facts straight before you open your mouth!

Great song nothing bad with it!

Great song nothing is bad about it except in the music video her clothes are a bit flashy, great role model and a theme popular these days. The only think is when you are doing lyrics some of the videos and the real word instead of "shh"

relatible, amazing song!!

I think this song is very relatible. It is also very catchy. My mom didn't let me listen/sing it for a LONG time. I tried to tell her that it wasn't too inappropriate, and she finally let me listen/sing it! The only thing that parents should know is that she says "remember all the things that you and I did first" and she says shis but not s--t.

want u back cd single

Families can talk about the rise to stardom that comes from participation on reality shows like The X Factor. Do you think these artists deserve the breaks they get? Considering the fact that many reality competition winners aren't always successful, do you think these shows find real talent? Or is it just a quick way to 15 minutes of fame? Lloyd, like many artists, features guest rappers in her songs. Do you like when singers do this? Why do you think pop singers feel the need to include a rapper? Does it make the song more marketable to a wider audience? How do you feel about the song's message? Is revenge ever OK?
