Looks like Cheryl Cole has traded in the X Factor for a Sun Protection Factor.
The singer said she would be taking some time for herself when she got ousted from the U.S. X Factor, and she seems to be doing just that!
Cole has been partying in Hollywood with GIrls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh, and the two did some sunbathing Monday.
And ... check out Cheryl's tattoos! Every rose has its thorn, as they say!
Soakin' up the sun!
