In the last of Sugababes’ series of videos covering the pop trio’s New Year’s resolutions, Heidi Range, Jade Ewen and Amelle Berrabah talked about which skills they’d like to master in 2010. Jade wants to learn how to drive, Heidi wants to learn how to play piano, and Amelle wants to learn several instruments and languages. Heidi also talked about being a bit of a germaphobe.
“I need to learn to drive,” Jade explained. “It’s becoming a joke now. I always got on the tube. I love the tube, and then all of the sudden you become a Sugababe and you can’t get on the tube anymore, and it’s like, what do I do now? I always got travel sickness, which is why I don’t want to be in a car for any longer than I have to.”
Heidi said, “I’d love to learn piano, and I’d love to learn different languages. Learn it on the road and take the books. I’d like to learn Italian. I can speak a little French but I’d like to learn do that, and Spanish.”
For her part, Amelle said, “I’m the same really, learning languages. I’d love to play piano, guitar. I’ve had a thing about the violin for ages but it’s so hard. It’s really hard.”

Sugababes’ Book Club
January 11, 2010 – Sugababes checked in with another video on their official web site, talking about which books they’ll be reading in 2010 as part of a New Year’s resolution. Jade Ewen said she’d like to finish the three ‘Twilight’ books, while Amelle Berrabah said she’s reading ‘Bright Shiny Morning’ by James Frey. Heidi Range suggested a music industry book and Alan Carr’s autobiography ‘Look Who It Is!’.
“I want to finish off ready ‘Twilight’,” Jade said. “I’ve read the first one. I’m on the second book and I haven’t finished. I really am a fan of ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Twilight’, anything that’s sort of fantasy. We never really get the chance to sit down and when you do get time you’re tired, so I read about three pages and I fall asleep.”
“For me, I’m reading two books actually. ‘The Kid Moves On’ and I’m reading one by James Frey, who did ‘A Million Little Pieces’ and ‘My Friend Leonard’. It’s called ‘Bright Sunny Mornings’, it’s a fiction. I normally like true stories. This is one of my first fiction (books) I’ve read but it’s really good.”
