Happy birthday, Cher Lloyd! They say, 'To err is human but to forgive is divine.' Most of us relate to this according to our own definition of a category to which we belong. You and I are human. Whoever told us that we were also divine? And even if we can recall some faint whisper along these lines, can we be sure of the source and of how much authority we should attribute to this? Events this week, may yet persuade you that the most important thing that any human ever needs to forgive themselves for, is believing the fallacy that they are not intrinsically divine.

Cher Lloyd rose to fame in 2010 as a contestant on the ITV show The X Factor.
Cher was part of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's team that year, and at the judges' house stage she came down with tonsillitis, making it impossible to sing to her best ability.
Cheryl picked her for the live shows anyway, and Cher became known for her street style and mash-ups that featured her rapping as well as singing.
During the semi-final Cher was voted off fourth, after performing a duet with Will.i.am. She signed with Syco and in the middle of 2011 she released her debut single, Swagger Jagger, which went to number one in the UK.
In 2012 Cher made her US debut on hit TV programme America' s Got Talent, and performed at the indie showcase South By South West.
The brunette beauty released her second album early in 2014 and featured on the smash-hit Demi Lovato single Really Don't Care.
Cher surprised fans in late 2013 by marrying her hairdresser boyfriend Craig Monk in a secret wedding ceremony.
