Cheryl: I'm in a great place as a woman

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has admitted she likes to go home and "turn the world off" on a daily basis.

The 31-year-old singer - who married her second husband Jean-Bernard Versini in July - insists she has "grown as a person" since her short break from showbusiness but since delving back into the fast-paced industry she enjoys chilling out of an evening by putting some music on and relaxing.

Speaking in a Beats by Dr. Dre exclusive film, which premieres her latest track ‘Fight On’ from her fourth studio album 'Only Human', she said: "I feel like I’ve really grown as a person over the past couple of years since I’ve been away.

"Even in the eye of the storm you need moments alone to think and gather your thoughts. Music helps me do that. All I want to do at the end of the day is put the music on and turn the world off."

Cheryl - who divorced footballer Ashley Cole in 2010 - returned to 'The X Factor' this year after a break from the spotlight, and she admits her life is in a "great place" at the moment and she approaches everything without any fear.

She added: "I feel instinctive. I'm not afraid. I'm prepared to go for it with no fear. I feel comfortable in my own skin, I know who I am. I know what I want, I know exactly what I don’t want. I’m in a great place as a woman."

The video is shot in a variety of locations throughout a week in Cheryl's life and sees her using music at every touch-point - rehearsing at a dance studio, getting motivated while waiting for a photoshoot and relaxing on her way home.
