Girls Aloud's Nadine Coyle: 'None of the girls were really speaking to each other'
Nadine Coyle has spoken to the Guardian about how Girls Aloud came to break up and how she played no part in the break-up. She explained where she was when the PR and manager told her at Liverpool's Echo Arena that the other girls wanted to call it a day:
"I was in hair and makeup, going through my nightly ritual. It was shocking. We’d signed a new deal and recorded what was basically another new album.”
She reacted by going into the venue's green room and confronted Sarah Harding:
"I said, ‘Do you want to break up the band as well?’ and she was like, ‘Oh fuck it, I can’t be arsed with it, I fucking hate everybody.’ That last show, all emotion was switched off as far as I was concerned, with any of them.”
The band then decided to announce the split via a tweet:
"A tweet?!” I saw the draft and just said, ‘Remove my name from that.’ We’d been saying since the start we were properly back.”
After the concert, that tweet was uploaded, the band were at the after show and Coyle put out her own tweet, it read:
"You should know by now I had no part in any of this split business. I couldn’t stop them. I had the best time & want to keep going."
Sarah Harding, this year's Celebrity Big Brother winner, is the only girl that Coyle still speaks to.
Coyle has returned to working with one of the band's producers, Brian Higgins of Xenomania fame. Her new single, 'Back to Work' has captured all the magic and energy of Xenomania's top dance pop hits of that era yet still sounds incredibly modern (listen to a clip below). The single was released last Friday (September 8).
In 2014 Cheryl allegedly put the blame on the band's demise on Coyle's shoulders stating that Coyle wanted to search for a solo record deal. Coyle's take on the situation is extremely different:
"Cheryl had already got her deal, she was ready to go with her solo stuff. I had nothing set up for myself.”
