The 27-year-old became jobless after she was dropped from the US version of The X Factor and replaced by singer Nicole Scherzinger last month. “I actually feel the happiest I’ve felt in a long, long time. I’ve got a big place, I have enough money — and if I never get photographed again, I don’t care,” Cole said.
“I’ve always had people saying, ‘We need to put an album out’ and, ‘We have to rehearse for this tour and that tour’ and, ‘Now we need to do auditions for X Factor,” she told Sunday Mirror newspaper. “I need to take a good few months off now — something I’ve never done before,” she added.
