Stunning singer Natasha Bedingfield has sided with Lily Allen in her spat with CHERYL COLE.

The UNWRITTEN songstress admitted she knew how Lily felt when she was upset thinking she was "fat and ugly" and slammed Cheryl for adding to Lily's woes.

She told the Sun: "I don't respect people who try to get on with their career by putting down other artists.

"I just don't understand it. Lily is an amazing artist."

She added that she knew how Lily must be feeling while touring the US and trying to break into the American market.

She said: "I feel sorry for her cancelling her US gigs but I totally understand.

"It's definitely hard work touring in America. It's all about your image."

And Natasha also claimed that she has weight issues herself and cannot watch videos of herself because she thinks she looks fat.

However, she pointed out that "girls over obsess" about their looks and weight and is happy with her curvy figure, boasting "men seem to like it".
