Cheryl Cole - Promise This

With face-bruising beats hitting harder than a racist girlband member punching a black toilet attendant, the nations favourite cock-eyed racist girlband member who has punched a black toilet attendant Cheryl Cole's new single Promise This delivers a knockout. Despite her appaling violent nature, I seriously love it and think her striking images from her stunning new video recall moments of Siobhan Fahey's triumphant hairflicking from Shakespear's Sister's promo-clip for You're History, as well as stealing visual concepts from both Sophie Ellis Bextor, who was too busy not releasing her album to comment via twitter or even at the self-service queue in Tesco (where she works these days), and the Soviet princess routine of Goldfrapp's Strict Machine.

I can make all the vile and contrived jokes about Cheryl's criminal records at my own expense all I like, but there is no doubting that the girl aloud gone styled singer has reached a new very quite good peak with the promise of only more to come. Dull and lifeless her voice may be, the glossy finish of everything else makes her girlband ties seem like unwanted dandruff in comparison.
