Ewen again says Sugababes are over

That Jade Ewen has again told Digital Spy that the Sugababes are basically finito, despite her bandmate Amelle Berrabah saying “would like to think that all three of us would get back together at the end of 2014 to do another album” in an interview with That Grape Juice this week.

But asked about that by DS, Ewen said this week: “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. 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”.

Ewen added that she thought the regular line-up changes in Sugababes had contributed to waning interest in the group, admitting that she had joined at the start of the outfit’s final chapter, something she says she was sort of aware of at the time, but she signed up anyway, partly because of fears her label was losing interest in her solo career plans.

“One day I’m hoping that I’ll be able to put out a book and explain that whole chapter”, she concluded. So that’s something to look forward to.
