Sugababes’ Restaurant Resolutions

Amelle Berrabah, Jade Ewen and Heidi Range of The Saturdays talk about New Year's ResolutionsJanuary 8, 2010 – Sugababes talked about their New Year’s resolutions for 2010, with Jade Ewen revealing she’d like to dine at a dark restaurant. Amelle Berrabah was so impressed with the idea she agreed they should try it, though she suggested she’d like to hit a Thai restaurant called Roxy. Heidi Range said she “wants to find a really good Mexican” restaurant like Saddle Ranch, which the girls went to when recording the new album in Los Angeles.

“Basically it’s a restaurant where it’s almost like a dungeon and you cannot see anything,” Jade explained, “not even in front of you, and you are served by blind waiters and you’re sat down. The whole experience is supposed to be really good because it heightens all of your senses. You’ve got to try and guess what you’re eating and you can’t find the cutlery. You can hear voices but you don’t know where people are. In the end they’ll bring you out and ask what do you think you had? Apparently everyone that’s every been there has never gotten it right, to be honest.”

Jade Ewen and Heidi Range of Sugababes talk about TwitterSugababes are out with their latest video clip promoting ‘About A Girl’, featuring Jade Ewen and Heidi Range offering their opinions about Twitter.

“I did have a Twitter page and I did recently delete it, which I’m really sorry about because there are some lovely fans out there who have shown us loads of support,” Jade explained. “But it is difficult, because you do also get some people that send some quite nasty and spiteful messages, so it’s a shame for those of you who have been lovely. We do appreciate it, and I think as well it’s a good way to say thank you and to be direct with you guys.”

Heidi continued, “I think the same. I really enjoyed doing my Twitter and it’s nice to chat with fans and stuff, but it’s been a tough few months and a lot has been going on, and really we’ve just been concentrating on dealing with that, rather than taking on board some of the negative comments that people feel the need to put on there. I’m sure we’ll be back on there soon when things settle down.”

“As an older sister, I’ve got one sister, Shereen, but she was born on my mom’s birthday, so she’s very sensible, and quite bossy, so people always thought she was the older sister. I’d get quite annoyed, to be honest. I’d love to play tricks on her and I wasn’t really good at sharing to be honest. I really struggled giving her my toys. Shereen says she was told it’s fine, she’s creative, she’s gonna be a singer, so you can forgive her for her madness.”

Heidi for her part said, “I was just always singing, like always wanting to do shows for my mom or my aunty. I’m sure they absolutely hated it and were sick of it. Yeah, I was just always like making plays or making dance routines, getting them to watch me. They had to sit down and pay attention. I was a bit of a pain basically.”

What Makes Jade Ewen And Heidi Range Happy

Jade Ewan and Heidi Range of Sugababes talk about what makes them happyJade Ewen and Heidi Range of Sugababes talked about what makes them happy in their latest video posted at the British girl group’s official web site. Heidi cited family get togethers, while Jade confessed to being a bit shallower, mentioning food and shoes. Meanwhile, Sugababes have announced the release date of their upcoming album ‘Sweet 7’, pushed back now to a February 22, 2010 release.

“What makes me happy is I just absolutely love it when all of my family get together,” Heidi said. “Same room, having a good time, because my family live up in Liverpool, and I’m in London. If I go there, usually my boyfriend is not with me, and when I’m here, I’m with him and they’re not here. So getting them all together is brilliant and that actually happened on Saturday for a family wedding, so that was great. All of us together having a nice time.”

For her part, Jade said, “Two things really make me happy. I love food, and I love shoes. Now I feel really shallow (laughs). I absolutely love food, it just makes me happy. Even when I’m full, I just love things that taste nice. Shoes, I’m obsessed with heels. Everybody knows I have one pair of trainers, and one pair of flip flops, and other than that, it’s just heels all the way. I’ll wear them in the kitchen, up and down the stairs, just because they look great.”

People have been tweeting me saying something about hair pulling. Where has this come from. There was nothing like that going on…

Nothing like that has ever happened between anyone. It really hasn’t. First time I heard of it. Please don’t believe it.

Just rumors. There will probably be a lot more. All I know is that I only speak the truth and that all that matters. Night everyone. xxx

1 more thing. When I said I can’t be arsed in an interview with Scott Mills. He asked me what really happened and I said I can’t be arsed to get into it because, just like I said, I don’t want to talk badly of anyone ‘coz that’s not me. Don’t want to go into too much detail because I still have a lot of respect for her. It’s not in my nature.

People can think what they like because I know that I can truly say I have done nothing wrong and have really tried my best.
