Cheryl Cole does not like being pranked by comedians pretending to be BBC reporters asking the same question over and over again.
Perez Hilton reported that the 28-year-old ‘Call My Name’ singer ran into a couple of odd reporters backstage at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball. She apparently believed the reporters to be from the BBC, so she spared them a few minutes of her precious time.
One of the reporters asked her “Why are we here?” Cheryl Cole was slightly puzzled, but handled the question as if she was being asked why the press was allowed backstage. However, after the BBC interviewers continued to repeat the question, Cheryl began to suspect that she was being mocked.
According to Perez Hilton, the last straw for Cheryl was when the strange BBC representatives added a philosophical twist to his repetitive question. “Why are we here… on Earth?” the man asked her.
As one can expect, Cheryl Cole had enough of the annoying BBC reporters at this point. The singer left in a huff.
It turned out that the supposed BBC reporters were actually comedians. They were filming a new comedy-prank show called ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised,’ which would air in the UK later this year.
Cheryl Cole had yet to comment on being the target of a prank by ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised.’

Admitting that she was “no Mariah Carey,” Cheryl Cole declared herself “bullet proof” against criticism.
Perez Hilton reported that Cole took a lot of flak for her recent performance at the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. This Wednesday, the 28-year-old singer spoke her mind.
“I am very aware of my ability,” Cheryl Cole told Brit tabloid The Sun. She admitted that “I know I’m no Mariah Carey,” but added that “I think the emotion in the song is what matters.” Cole explained “It’s making people feel what you’re singing about” that was important. ”My new album is designed to entertain,” she added. “I know when I take to the stage and I see a million little lights-” And Cole cited her new album “-It really is game time.
According to Perez Hilton, Cheryl Cole believed she had grown as a person and an artist, and the proof of that could be heard in her music. “I feel brand new,” she told The Sun, “I’m bullet proof.”
Saying that ”I feel as hard as the times I’ve had,” the woman who was no Mariah Carey also believed that “everything happens for a reason,” even if she could not always understand what that reason was.
“On the first album,” she further shared with The Sun, “I was really nervous after seven years with ‘Girls Aloud.’” According to Cheryl Cole, that was the time “I had to step forward on my own and prove myself.”
Now, with two number one albums under her belt, Cole said that “I feel I know what I’m doing. I fit into my own shoes now,” she shared, “And I’m simply not worried anymore.”
The Cheryl Cole album ’A Million Lights’ will be released next Monday.
