AIBU to think that Girls Aloud are shite?

(47 Posts)

Just watching them on the telly, and i'm sorry, but i can warble as well! grin

Did one of the clones slip whilst on stage or was it my wine induced imagination?

Nadine Coyle. What the fuck is going on with her accent. That's some bastardisation of a hybrid NI/Californian twang. Most bizarre.

EmpireBiscuit Fri 16-Nov-12 21:03:07

Nadine coyle makes me want to pull my ears off and cover my eyes with them.

Everlong Fri 16-Nov-12 21:03:59

They all look botoxed to buggery.

hermioneweasley Fri 16-Nov-12 21:05:00

I was watching on a wide screen TV and I gasped at how fucking thin Nadine is. Totally irresponsible that nobody has taken her out of the public eye for her own health and as a role model to girls.

You are being VVVVVV unreasonable to just call them 'shite' instead of 'shite bloody fucking useless and irritating bunch of Spice Girl wannabes'.

Fair play so! Nadine..oh God Save Us!
Listen luv, you suedo irish american "accent" drawly type shite is crap!
Henry Higgins would have a field day! grin
And i'm having wine!

They look grubby and underfed.

Pedallleur Fri 16-Nov-12 21:17:50

They fill a niche in the market, are making themselves better off and someone else eg management rich. One of them had an issue with alcohol after a bad relationship but if they are lucky they'll end up with a nice house and rich banker/music biz exec partner so good luck to them. There will always be manufactured acts, Take That,Bros,JLS spring to mind.


They can't sing or dance.

BridgetBidet Fri 16-Nov-12 21:23:27

Their new song is rubbish but some of their stuff, like 'The Promise' was very good. And Nadine, though vvvvvv skinny is a very good singer and her solo stuff was shockingly under rated compared to Cheryl.

BridgetBidet Fri 16-Nov-12 21:24:00

Arisbottle, I like girls who look grubby, they're the most fun.

ifancyashandy Fri 16-Nov-12 21:25:34

Ah man.... They were never set up as being the next Streisand (or equivalent). And Nadine may have body issues but she's a cracking pair of lungs and maybe, just maybe, she needs the band to help her through. Point is, who knows?

I like GA. Their music is shite pop - fun! They ain't claiming to be saviours of the sisterhood. But I think some people need to acknowledge that's their dislike is actually based on snootiness or envy. Seriously, would you not have given your eye-teeth to be them in your twenties (if you didn't know how the press manipulated you till too late)? Hanging out with your mates, singing and wearing the best frocks? What's not to love?!

Now, I work in a similar industry and know that the reality is they work 360 days a year, leaving home at 5am and returning to a far flung hotel at 2am and getting paid £300 per week for the first 3 years but really, that doesn't make them worthy of 'they are botox'd to buggery' vitriol. So freaking what if they are? You can still, as mothers and women, teach your daughters and sons that their way might be a way but it isn't the only way...

Pop has always been about beauty and the 'them and us'. And long may it continue.

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 21:27:12

I used to like them. That 'song' was terrible though. Was it Cheryl who nearly went flying?

No, not envious here.

Bingdweller Fri 16-Nov-12 21:31:47

So it wasn't just me that saw it then Sarge? Just saw wobbly long legs and orange frock trying to regain balance! Could have been any one of 'em!

NorbertDentressangle Fri 16-Nov-12 21:34:44

God they were dire on Children in Need weren't they. They sounded like a second rate Spice Girls.

Also, what has Sarah H done with her face FGS? Botox, lip enhancement and veneers on her teeth I presume as she looked so plastic and unnatural.

Anonymumous Fri 16-Nov-12 21:35:54

No snootiness or envy here. I loved the Spice Girls (still do!) and I am pretty damned envious of Victoria Beckham. But Girls Aloud? To be honest, the only one I know of is Cheryl Cole, and she sets my teeth on edge. All that "Oi reelly reelly lov yer" stuff on the X-Factor - aaarrrgghh!!! She has to be one of the most irritating women on the planet.

Plus they make stupid comments about being bigger than the Spice Girls. Yeah, right. IN YOUR DREAMS!!! Girl Power rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Paiviaso Fri 16-Nov-12 21:40:14

I haven't seen them perform since they reunited, but in general YABU. They have cheeky, catchy songs and are hot as fuck.

SoulTrain Fri 16-Nov-12 21:40:49

I like them. They're all stunning and their songs are inoffensive and catchy.

And I think it's fair to say they have far more singing talent than any of the Spice Girls. They were just a concept.

SoleSource Fri 16-Nov-12 21:44:54

Never jealous of talentless so called celebs. Do not care how much money they have.

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 21:45:01

I like some of their music. That rap on children in need though sounded like foxes screaming in the night.

ifancyashandy no, definately not envious, but i do admire their drive and ambition.
But at the same time, while i work with with teenagers, no one wants to be like them, which is telling in my job.
My Son and his peers are teenagers in the 17/18 year old bracket, and even they are tired of the glamorous overhyped pictures celebs
A family relative works in the industry. That person is tired and stressed and has no time to chill out.

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 21:45:52

I'm not jealous little bit of all of their nice thin legs and arms

Bingdweller Fri 16-Nov-12 21:52:49

Nicola Roberts sounds good on the second song, our Cheryl is a bit dire though!

Unacceptable Fri 16-Nov-12 21:54:09

They are great pop. Catchy, fab tunes and the ginger one has a beautiful voice.
This Ballad they are singing now is lovely and glad Nicola has more of a lead vocal.

FiteFuaite Fri 16-Nov-12 21:55:57

Ah but what about lyrics such as

'I'm standing over the basin
I've been washing my face in'

You gotta be impressed with that!! grin

bureni Fri 16-Nov-12 21:56:02

They are way better than that other talentless bag of mingers the Spice Girls.

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 22:02:59

Kimberley and Nadine can sing. The others not so much.

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 22:03:18

Not nadine

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 22:03:48

I mean The one from Liverpool

bangersmashandbeans Fri 16-Nov-12 22:04:53

Sarah Hardings lips are bigger than Nadine's whole body.

Everlong Fri 16-Nov-12 22:06:28

Kimberley can sing? confused not to my ears.
Nicola was pretty good on that last song.

Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 22:06:33


Sargesaweyes Fri 16-Nov-12 22:08:12

You're right Everlong. Just the scouse one then. I quite like Kimberley though. I like her curvy arse

MrsMoosickle Fri 16-Nov-12 22:10:16

Sarah Harding looked like she was zoned out on another planet!

Everlong Fri 16-Nov-12 22:10:49

Oh yeah I like her, just not her voice grin

Ah they're alright <shrug>

EnjoyResponsibly Fri 16-Nov-12 22:14:42

Beryl (national treasure and batterer of toilet attendants) gives me the Rage.

The rest I could care less about.

rainbow2000 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:15:27

Ah i dont mind them but really they are not role models.I was having this conversation today with y ds who is 17.You make yourself your childs role model not some manufactured group.Really if they are the role models we are fucked.

FrillyMilly Fri 16-Nov-12 22:23:54

They aren't great singers. Maybe we should start turning a blind eye to miming again. How old is Sarah Harding?

I would never ever want to be famous so definitely not envious of them. I don't feel sorry for them because they work 20 hour days 360 days a year. They are hardly being held at gunpoint and forced to warble for the nation. If people don't want to be famous they don't have to be.

Mousefunk Fri 16-Nov-12 22:32:44

I don't think Nadine has 'body issues' she has always been skinny. I feel sorry for naturally skinny people, its v.hard for them to gain weight and they're constantly told they must have disorders.. it must be very disheartening. I'm sure a lot of them don't even want to be that skinny. Saying she should be pulled off tv because she's skinny is just awful, I can't imagine anyone would say that about a fat person.

If anything they should be taken off for crimes to music.. if you can call it that. Wtf was that 'rapping'?! I was under no illusion that any of them are talented singers but now attempting to rap? Just no. Also Sarah's lips are out of control.. Kimberley is by far the most attractive, always said it and still stick too it.

stilli Fri 16-Nov-12 22:35:48

Lollipops. YANBU

SoleSource Fri 16-Nov-12 22:36:36

E.njoy!!! Lmao

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Fri 16-Nov-12 22:39:29

The only think I dislike more that GA is one of them on their own. At least in a "band" they can drown each other out a bit harmonise hmm

True! x
