SUGAMANIA: Amelle Berrabah says a Sugababes reunion could happen in 2014; Jade Ewen says they have been over for two years
Sugababe #5 Amelle Berrabah reckons the current version of the Sugababes could have a follow up to Freedom out towards the end of next year. Take that, MKS!
Amelle was talking to That Grape Juice about her upcoming solo single Love Is All We Need, but basically they ignored that and asked instead about the stuff that really matters i.e. the Sugababes, what the Sugababes are doing, when the Sugababes will be back.
“I deffo wouldn’t say never,” she said, deffo-nitely. “I would like to think that all three of us would get back together at the end of 2014 to do another album.
“But that’s if all three of us want to do it wholeheartedly. But a lot changes in a year, but I’d like to think we will.”
Which is good, yes, but sort of flies directly in the face of Sugababe #6 Jade Ewen, who, over at the National Lottery Stars gala, was busy telling Digital Spy that actually Sugababes 2.0 (that’s Sugababe #4, Heidi, plus #5 and #6) split up two years ago.
And she said that pretending anything otherwise was unfair to fans.
“This is a tricky one,” she said, trickily. “I don’t feel comfortable lying, [but] saying we’re in the studio recording and we’re going to bring music out next year – which seems to be the favoured line – I think it’s unfair to fans and we should be honest.
“The band being over is definitely not my choice. I kind of was unlucky in that I came in towards the end of the cycle when things naturally came to the end.
“There was so much drama surrounding the group, I think the music just got lost. I don’t like all the drama and the negativity. We kind of fizzled out about two years ago.” So, in conclusion: the Sugababes are definitely over, but might release something in 2014. CLEAR AS MUD.
