In an attempt to avoid braindead, the singer who has just split from her husband said she even talks to herself sometimes.
British pop star Cheryl Cole doesn't mind her grueling schedule - because her hectic lifestyle stops her feeling lonely. Cole is currently on hiatus from her band Girls Aloud but has been keeping busy by releasing a solo album and serving as a judge on Simon Cowell's U.K. TV talent show "The X Factor".
And the singer, who split from her soccer star husband Ashley Cole in February following allegations he had a string of affairs, admits she prefers working hard to taking time off - because she hates being by herself. She says, "I travel the whole world and hardly have any time for myself. Secretly I don't mind this at all, because I hate being on my own."
"I just want to stay busy and keep the energy flowing. I fear I'd go braindead if I don't, so I just have to keep busy - even if it means I have to talk to myself. I get bored to tears (during time off). After two weeks off at Christmas, I went mental. In the end I had to book a holiday and went to the beach with my mum."
