Cheryl Cole can't believe that people call her fat. And frankly, we can't believe it either.

Cheryl  a British pop star and judge of the British X Factor, who was also (briefly) a judge on the American version  says that people do in fact call her fat, which she doesn't find fair.

"You can't call someone who's a size 6 fat," Cheryl tells Glamour UK. "An average woman is a size 10 to 12, so if you're calling me fat because I'm a size 6, and I have never ever been bigger than an 8, you're causing women some serious issues."

To be honest, we don't think anyone should be called fat, regardless of what size they are. But maybe that's just us!

Cheryl went through a painful divorce from soccer player Ashley Cole in 2010  in which it was revealed that he had cheated on her with multiple women  and has dated Dancing With The Stars star Derek Hough.

"I'm not unlucky in love or anything else," Cheryl says. "And I'm absolutely not a victim. I'm strong, happy and settled  and I really don't give a s**t anymore."

You tell 'em, Cheryl.
