One Less Babe

I gotta admit, I didn't pay that much attention to UK girl group Sugababes till their single "Push The Button" was released this fall. Then I got all into their new album. So it figures that now, after 7 years (and me finally liking them), member Mutya Buena has left the group to take care of her kid she had in March.



There's already been a replacement for her announced. Here's an interesting article detailing the history of the group. The Babes have been down this road before, but history has kinda proven that once the lineup of a girl group starts getting shady (with the exception of maybe Destiny's Child), the fans get cranky.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. What other cheeky chappyettes will fill the UK charts. In a year that brought us a (shocker) gay westlifer, Crazy Frog and Charlotte Church going pop? Is there anything left in the UK pop arena other than girls aloud or (gulp) Will Young. Oi Vay... this is a dark day in pop.

    I think they'll survive a personnel change - they've done so before, after all. Interesting that this is occurring at the height of their success, though.

    At least it has all been done above board - the "selection" of the new member has gone on with Mutya's consent so it's not like she's doing a Ging-er Spice and burning her bridges.

    I just hope that the 'Babes continue with their cutting edge pop and don't lapse into doing too many identikit tunes like "Ugly". Fortunately with "Red Dress" as the next single that doesn't seem likely.

    Aw, I'm happy for Mutty. Five bucks says she's already tossed baby into the Thames for a solo deal.

    OMG! I laughed so hard at that I think the windows in my office cracked and fell out!

    The new 'babe' is even uglier than Mutty.

    If she's ugly then so are you, so are you...
