Cheryl Cole for British Vogue: “I’m a woman, not a girl any more”

She married Ashley in 2006 but after allegations of multiple infidelities surfaced, their union fell apart and was granted a quickie divorce in London’s High Court last week.

“I’ve just got to be grateful that I’ve got so many good things going on. I have. And there’s no children you know?”

However she surely wants to have babies: “That’s definitely something I want to achieve. It’s the toughest job in the world – but I know it must be the most rewarding too. I’m ready now. I’m 27. I’m a woman, not a girl any more. Thinking about yourself constantly isn’t so healthy.”

“I suppose that’s the point of having children, isn’t it? Being able to live your life through them instead of you, having them be your motivation? That’s the ‘right’ thing, I’m thinking – when you love someone more than you love yourself. That’s what I think about my mum.”

Some of the latest rumors say she is rumored to become a judge alongside Simon Cowell in the American version of X Factor, scheduled to debut on FOX in fall 2011.

Chris Isaak to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol?

The rumors are fueled by the fact that he has met twice with those of Fox.

Chris Isaak, along with music, has appeared over the years in numerous television series such as “Eastwick”, “Cold Case”, “Smallville” and in his own television show, “Chris Isaak Show”. Another singer, Harry Connick Jr., was also considered.

Even rocker Bret Michaels would like the role of judge for “American Idol”, even making lobby last week in an interview for Headline News (“I would love to do it, I would really bring it to the table”, Michaels told Joy Behar). Some sources, however, say that Michaels doesn’t have any chances in the race.

In addition, Donald Trump lobbied to replace Simon Cowell, despite his long association with NBC as a producer and judge of “The Apprentice”.

While Fox insisted that no decision is imminent, network entertainment president Peter Rice said that until the beginning of September, the new judge will join the Caravan.

They want the “American Idol” judge to be similar to “X Factor” Simon Cowell. In many ways, Fox tries to realize who is the right “piece”, a delicate process, considering the long-term tension between Cowell and the executive producer of “American Idol, Simon Fuller.
