Cheryl is back after a three-year hiatus, and she is more candid than ever.

The 35-year-old has dropped her new single Love Made Me Do It, complete with a flashy video, and the lyrics show that Chezza is not taking any flak for her love life.

Released four months after her split from Liam Payne, Love Made Me Do It references Cheryls marriages to Ashley Cole and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and her extensive tattoo collection, which she claims are marks of how far shes come.

In the first verse, Cheryl sings: Ive been the bad girl, Ive been the good wife, and Ive fallen hard like a million times/ On number seven of my nine lives/ The ink on my skin, is all the places Ive been.

The mum-of-one also suggests her friends are annoyed about her constant break-ups, singing: All my friends are like “woah girl, stop”/ Cause theyre the ones who pick the pieces up.

While Cheryl admits she falls in love with every fucker, she insists that the song isnt about one ex in particular – we can practically hear Liam breathing a sigh of relief.

Speaking on Jessie Wares Table Manners, Cheryl said: Actually all the music and all the songs that Ive got ready were done way before we split – none of them are about anybody. I wasnt sat writing a love poem to anyone or about anybody.

Its something that anyone whos been in love will be able to relate to in some way or another.

Its catchy and its fun. Its not about one specific person or relationship. Its more about me being the lover of love that I am. I just love love!

Love Made Me Do It is out now.

Love Made Me Do It lyrics

I took the fast lane all of my life
Ive been the bad girl, Ive been the good wife
I dont stop to think, when I go in I go in
Ive fallen hard like a million times
On number seven of my nine lives
The ink on my skin, is all the places Ive been

Oh my god, Im such a sucker
I fall in love with every fucker
But oh no, I wont apologise

Cause Im breaking all my rules but love made me do it
Should have used my head cause my heart really blew it
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
And now Im losing all my cool but love made me do it
Should have used my head cause my heart really blew it
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
Love made me do it, and Id do it again

I did my time on the yellow brick road
I saw some shit that make your head explode
Had to do what I do, just to get me to you
And all my friends are like “woah girl, stop”
Cause theyre the ones who pick the pieces up
Its bad for my health, but I just cant help myself

Oh my god, Im such a sucker
I fall in love with every fucker
But oh no, I wont apologise – nah

Cause Im breaking all my rules but love made me do it
Should have used my head cause my heart really blew it
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
And now Im losing all my cool but love made me do it
Should have used my head cause my heart really blew it
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
Love made me do it, and Id do it again

Im not gonna justify why I wanna change my mind
Cause Im a lover not a hater
Sure as hell wont take no blame for my behaviour
No, Im not gonna justify why I wanna change my mind
Cause Im a lover not a hater
Sure as hell wont take no blame for my behaviour

Breaking all my rules but love made me do it
Should have used my head cause my heart really blew it
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
And now Im losing all my cool but love made me do it
Should have used my head cause my heart really blew it
Love made me do it (it wasnt my fault)
Love made me do it, and Id do it again
