We already knew that Cher Lloyd was good pals with One Direction. Not only do they have the whole X-Factor UK thing in common, the pop star has even said that she considers the guys her brothers!
But in a new interview, Cher reveals just how much they've meant to music career too.
"We're [both] always all over the place trying to work hard and trying to get somewhere, so I've seen a lot of them on the Internet and on TV, and it's great they're doing so well," she told omg!. "It kind of sets it up for me, too. You know, if someone else can do it from a TV show, then I can do it, too."
"It's hard for anyone to break into this music industry, and I think having a collective bunch of people makes it slightly easier..." she continued. "I'm very much a One Direction fan. I think they're the best boy band out there right now."
