Jade Ewen is pretty sure the Sugababes are no more if she's being quite honest.
The 'My Man' hitmaker had a lengthy chat with Digital Spy about the status of the band, noting: "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."
It was probably due to all the lineup changes right?
"I do think the lineup changes have obviously got to be a factor, you can't get away from it. I'd be lying if I didn't think the same when I was approached. I was like, 'Is this going to work? Are people going to accept it?' But I know it's a brand and the music industry isn't necessarily about making music."
About her place in the band, Jade had quite a bit to say for herself, which you can read over on Digital Spy if you're interested.
