The all new Sugababes gave their first official interview today, since the shock sacking of founder, Keisha Buchanan, on Radio One. The girls spoke candidly about the problems that plagued the group. Heidi & Amelle both admitted that they couldn’t continue working with Keisha…
“Life’s too short and you have to enjoy yourself. You try to make it work. I have so much respect for the journey that we had with Keisha. It’s hard but you’ve got to make a life decision, where you’re going to move on, and I know there were reports in the paper that I planned to get Keisha out of the group and that’s completely not true.”
They also premiered their new re-worked single, “About a Girl” with Jade’s vocals.
