And they’ve already had a chat with Popjustice about their feelings towards the current Sugababes – Amelle, Heidi and Jade – and what will happen if someone quits again. (Hint: It’s not looking good for Heidi).
Keisha said: “When everyone else found out I wasn’t in the group is pretty much when I found out. I will say that we had a great relationship, me and the girls; I’ve never had an argument with Amelle in my life. I was really shocked by the things that they were saying because I’d always been there for them, and they were there for me as well.
“But, you move on, and you learn, and I learned valuable life lessons during that period… I feel like everything has gone full circle and right now I’m exactly where I’m meant to be. And I genuinely wish them the best of luck.
“To be honest with you I was very hurt and disappointed and I did feel betrayed by the whole thing. But I feel like when you don’t forgive people and when you’re very bitter it’s not really doing anything for you. But I’m in a great place, and that’s all I care about. Onwards and upwards.”
Very well said. Last month, Amelle had told Maximum Pop that she feels similarly: “I’ve got no bad blood; I’m not someone who’s like that. No, I think they’re all very talented… Mutya’s obviously got one of the best voices I’ve ever heard. And Keisha, a very talented person who’s also got a great voice. I’m intrigued, I’m intrigued…in a good way!”
But back to now, and if someone quits MKS it’ll apparently just be curtains for the whole thing.
Siobhan said: “That would be the end of that.”
Keisha, who seems to be doing 90% of the talking, said: “We’ve had discussions. We have a way of working: we trust each other. We look after each other. We are genuinely there for each other. If we were unhappy we’d tell each other and we’d figure it out, between ourselves.”
And now we wait for the music.
