I shall be playing the role of Beth in the new 2010 Tour of Jeff Wayne’s “The War of The Worlds”!!
I’m so very excited to be involved in the show, and although it seems quite a long way off now, I’m sure it will come around in no girl at all. Oh and girls… guess who I will be staring alongside… none other than 80s heart throb himself Mr Jason Donovan! Oh yes!!
We are taking the Tour to UK and Europe, so I really hope as many of you as possible will come and along and support me at your nearest venue.
Liz McClarnon checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Monday (October 19), commenting on the shocking death of Boyzone star Stephen Gately, working in the studio, attending parties, and appearing on ITV’s ‘This Morning’. The former Atomic Kitten writes:
Firstly, I have to say I am deeply saddened by the news about Stephen Gately! As you all know I have been a Boyzone fan since they began and I was lucky enough to know him, once my own career began. Last year I took my oldest friend Aimee to meet the Boyz in Liverpool (she adored Stephen) and she was so happy to finally meet him. (I posted the pic on Twitter) Stephen took time for people. He always made you feel like he was really interested in what you were up to etc. He was a good, good man! God, Saturday was such a sad day for so many people!! All I can do is wish his family, my deepest empathy!
Liz McClarnon checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Monday (September 7), talking about her work in the studio with Redeye, hearing a song they did with Mutya Buena, doing the Girl Guides centenary birthday celebrations, and running into Claudia Winkleman at a Starbucks. The former Atomic Kitten writes:
I was in the studio with producers called Redeye, they were so funny and we wrote very cool song called “Who You Are”…..gorgeous! They’ve worked with all sorts of people like Mutya and everyone and let me tell you i heard a song they did with her….i mean we ALL know that girl’s got a CRACKING voice but Oh My God you should hear her on this track, it will honestly knock you out!! She couldn’t have really done all those ad-libs in the Sugababes because everyone has to get a bit in don’t they…but i hope you get to hear her! You go girl!
I was also in with my chums Tinderbox and we started writing this song called “Stay” Oh my god, it’s so so sad! I’ve only ever had to hold tears in twice before while writing a song once was when writing “Kisses” because it’s about loved ones dying, the other was when I wrote, “Never Get Over You” for a Kittens album and now i did it again after writing Stay! Oh my god! Very pointed! I hope to finish that ASAP so you can hear it!

Everyone was laughing their heads off! And when you see the pic you’ll laugh ’cause I’m beaming!
Liz McClarnon checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Monday (August 17), talking about recently signing a record deal and running into Blue singer Anthony Costa at the Midlands music festival last week. The former Atomic Kitten star writes:
Err hello totally forgot the news…I know you already know but let’s just say it again… I’m Signed!! Did you see my pic on Twitter! It was such a funny day actually because I was working so hard and had to make my way to the Belta office to sign the deal… we had to rush it through so we were just doing it by scanning backwards and forwards… very surreal but done (they want to release the single very soon so we had to rush it) So the single will be out (hopefully) Mid November just depends on who else is out and if we can get the video done ASAP…. the meeting for that is next week and there have been some Brilliant suggestions as for what to do in it… Hey… here’s an idea… How about you make some too?? That’d be class… imagine if YOUR suggestion made it into the video!! Wow! So yeah…let me know.
Liz McClarnon checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Friday (August 7), talking again about a recent press report suggesting she offered a warning to Lily Allen. The former Atomic Kitten writes:
I guess I should start with saying…. As I’m sure, you’re all aware I have never said about anyone in my flipping life…. “She better watch out!”
Apparently, I said that the other day about Lily Allen… erm… nope! Now, I’ve been racking my brains trying to think where that came from and I have a thought! (Yes, was painful!)… I did an interview about two/three months ago where a journo said to me, something like… you don’t like Lily Allen? And just said… it’s not that, I just didn’t like her comments and the faces she pulled, on the Ant and Dec show that time… nothing more! The journo then proceeded to RANT about the girl for quite a while (obviously not a fan) to which my response was mostly…. “No?”… “Really?”…. “Ooooo”…. etc…. So, maybe it was that?! Actually, alot of comments she makes do tickle me… so Whatevs! Naughty Journo! But actually it doesn’t matter does it?! It happens all the time!
Liz McClarnon celebrated a new record deal with a night out with her boyfriend. The former Atomic Kitten star writes:
Off to the Belta office to actually sign my record deal!! Then my fella’s taking me for a posh dinner! x
Signed, sealed, delivered!Deal is done! AND…Dinner was gorgeous! x
After the Daily Star reported that she made remarks critical of Lily Allen, Liz McClarnon took to her Twitter (@LizMcClarnon) to deny ever making the comments to the British tabloid. “I absolutely detest Lily Allen,” the newspaper quoted the former Atomic Kitten singer as saying. “She has such a bad attitude and I don’t like people who don’t want to do any work. I think she’s had a push from her dad.”
What the hell?!? I haven’t said ANYTHING about anyone!!! x x
I swwwwwearrrrrrr!! I didn’t say anything about Lily Allen! Leave me alone! x
Liz McClarnon updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Tuesday (July 7), talking about Michael Jackson’s death, spending time in the studio, and Glastonbury. The former Atomic Kitten writes:
It’s been a sad week hasn’t it… MJ…. what’s going on there? I hope so much that there is nothing untoward found relating to him passing away!!! Just for his little kids really!! So Sad!
Linking in with Mr Jackson, I actually met Quincy Jones the other day!! What a cool dude with a brilliant sense of humor! That was such a brilliant day for me!! I saw Beverley Knight the same day actually and we had a little catch up…. She’s playing Newcastle in November so I’ll make the most of that… Go and watch her and have a good few days up there too! Brill! She said she fancies coming to watch me in the West End too! That’ll be funny! What a genuine woman! I love her!
Liz McClarnon updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@lizmcclarnon) on Monday (May 18), talking about the delay of her new single ‘Lately’. The former Atomic Kitten writes:
Well I have to start this blog with some strange news… there will be no release of The Single today! There are legal reasons for it not coming out but hey… it’s nothing to do with me… I was only featuring anyhow! It’s to do with the company who were releasing it and the download around the world. But I am disappointed of course!!! It’s taken up A LOT of my time where I could be working on my own music! Oh dear oh dear oh dear…. and Breathe!! That’s my “the secret” kicking in!! And you’ve GOT TO believe me!! It so works!! I’ve been getting everything I want! Even if something not so great happens, something AMAZING comes out of it! I am so grateful for it!!!
