I can never be like Rihanna, says Cheryl Cole

Washington: Cheryl Cole thinks she could never be like Rihanna, as she is not as outspoken as the Barbadian singer.

The 28-year-old pop star confessed she wouldn’t be able to be as blunt as the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker.

“Rihanna is a free spirit and doesn’t care if she calls somebody a **** on her Twitter. But there are 12-year-old girls on there,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling gay magazine Attitude.

Cole, whose parents separated when she was 11, insisted that she prefers to be nice to people and set a good example to youngsters.

“I didn’t grow up with a role model so it’s nice to be somebody’s guide,” she added.
