Cheryl Cole has said that she considers herself a strong person who doesn't let herself get pushed around.
The 'Call My Name' singer made the admission during an interview with Spanish magazine S Moda.
She revealed: "I'm not afraid to be weak or show my feelings, but mainly I consider myself a strong person.
"I won't let myself get pushed around. I'm not stupid."
She also explained comments made in 2009 when she claimed to only trust her mother and her pet dogs.
"I was asked that question during a very weird time in my life," she clarified. "So I said that to try and make people leave me alone.
"I also trust my team, my family and my friends."
Cheryl's third album A Million Lights recently debuted at No2 in the UK, after 'Call My Name' set the bar for the fastest-selling single of 2012 so far.
