The Sugababes have been avoiding the evitable for as long as they could, but it seems the time has come to fess up about the bands future. The most recent member of the group, Jade Ewen confessed she couldn’t continue to lie to their fans. The group have been teasing fans since they took a break in 2012, saying they were recording and set to reunite.
The band tried to make it work, but it wasn’t to be.
The band, who have gone through multiple line-up changes over the years, released their last single in September 2011 before announcing a hiatus to allow Heidi and Jade to compete on reality shows Dancing on Ice and Splash and Amelle to work on solo material. The band have always been adamant in interviews that they would eventually reunite, but Jade has now admitted it’s over for good. Talking to Digital Spy the singer confesses:
“This is a tricky one because I don’t feel comfortable lying, 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 [to Sugababes] 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.”
