REJOICE ONE AND ALL: AN EASTER MIRACLE IS UPON US.
According to their manager Hilary Shaw, Girls Aloud are officially reforming to perform in 2012–but not necessarily to record a new studio album (yet).
From MTV UK:
Girls Aloud will reunite in 2012 to mark their 10th anniversary, their manager has confirmed.
Hilary Shaw said to expect the five-piece to perform together to mark the milestone. â€œEverybody wants them to make a comeback and it will be next year. Well, it is their 10th anniversary so there will be something,â€ she said.
But she added that fans shouldnâ€™t expect a new studio album just yet, as Cheryl Cole is busy with her solo career and her rumoured X Factor USA slot.
As for the other girls, Nicola Roberts is readying a solo LP, Sarah Harding is concentrating on acting and Kimberley Walsh on TV presenting. Nadine Coyleâ€™s album flopped when it was released late last year.
The Girls Aloud boss also insisted that all five members are still good friends, despite rumours of infighting. â€œThe girls are still getting on great, they speak all the time, and that includes Cheryl and Nadine with the other girls,â€ Hilary told The People. â€œCheryl is keen to get back with the girls and is planning something which could be a one-off or some gigs.â€
So, that’s that: “A one-off or some gigs”–for now, at least.
And in an important side note, I’m absolutely obsessed with the way this article has portrayed the Aloud’s current individual activities: Cheryl? New music. Nicola? New music. Sarah? Acting. Kimberley? TV. Nadine? “FLOPPED.”
Y SO MUCH SHADE, MTV?
