Girls Aloud star CHERYL COLE won't be ringing in the New Year at any celebrity-packed parties - she hates the idea of talking to other stars just because she's famous.
The British beauty, whose profile has dramatically increased since taking over as a judge on hit U.K. TV talent show The X Factor, is often invited to lavish bashes to party alongside a host of other famous faces.
But the singer can't stand the fake friendships celebrities are expected to have - insisting she'd rather have a quiet meal with bandmate and best pal Kimberley Walsh.
She tells OK! magazine, "All I want to do (after work) is go home. And it's all such bulls**t, because you don't really know the people there. It's like waving across the room, 'Hello, I'm famous, you're famous. I don't really know you but I'm saying hello to you anyway.'
"I much prefer to got to Kimberley's and have her cook for me. Just natural normal parties where you can let your hair down and no one's going to start taking your picture on their mobile phones or any of that s**t."
