British singer/songwriter Passenger hopes Cher will forgive him for his blistering attack on her in the lyrics of his new song I Hate.

The newcomer, real name Mike Rosenberg, took aim at the pop superstar while writing the song, claiming her face “looks like it’s been hit by a truck” – and the words stuck.

Now, Passenger insists he was just in a terrible mood when he penned the lyrics in the back of a really hot bus while touring in Australia – and he doesn’t want Cher to take his attack too seriously.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, “It was just harmless p**s-taking, really… Some people have gotten really offended with that line.

“I have nothing against Cher. I think she’s amazing. But it was funny!”
