Cheryl Cole has kept a very low profile ever since being booted off the US version of ‘The X Factor’ and being humiliated by her cheating husband yet again, but she’s on the comeback trail; she is currently shooting a new music video and covering the May 2012 issue of Marie Claire UK.

In the issue, which hits newsstands on April 5th, the 28-year-old pop star looks great on both the newsstand cover wearing a cut-out dress and on the subscribers’ cover wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

The rest of her editorial shot by Tesh sees Cheryl wearing Fendi, Carven and Dior.

Cheryl opens up to Marie Claire about her biggest regrets, her serious shoe addiction and her hopes for the future.

On how she sees the next chapter of her life panning out: “Who. The hell. Knows. In life, in general, you just don’t know. That’s the fun of it.”

On her shoe addiction: “It’s definitely got worse over the years, my shoe thing. Just worse and worse and worse. I should really seek a little bit of therapy. Me doing my own shoe range is quite cathartic.”

On her life being much more normal than portrayed by the tabloids: “I’m from such a normal family and background. I’m grateful for that; otherwise it could send you crazy… People have this crazy idea of my life.”

On people analysing her life: “I mean, sometimes, when people say things like, ‘Is the fact she’s wearing a pair of jeans sending out a signal?’, that still freaks me out. People psychoanalysing every move you make is weird.”

On if she has any regrets: “In life? No. Life’s too short to have regrets. Mistakes are life. I don’t live like that. I don’t have that mentality. I think that things are sent to you so you learn and grow. If you regret them, you would never be the person that you are.”
