The Saturdays Recording 'Hard Candy 2'?

Pop kiddies, if you're not yet following Chart Rigger on Twitter, you're missing out on so many important little details that will rock your foundation till it cracks. For instance...the other day I'd read that U.K. girl group "sensation" The Saturdays were working with American producers (why?!?) on their follow-up album to last year's hugely successful Chasing Lights.

Then, this morning, former S Club 8-turned-Saturdays member Frankie Sandford tweet-elly-deetled the following: "Apparently were working with Pharrell Williams in America... 1st I heard of it!"

No, The Saturdays, NO!!! This can only mean one of three things:

1. Frankie was being facetious. Though this idea, if true, is more like feces-ous.

2. The Saturdays are big fans of Madonna's Hard Candy. Newsflash, girls: Madonna hasn't been good since 1973.

3. The Saturdays are big fans of Gwen Stefani. Newsflash girls: Gwen's last album tanked almost as bad as Hard Candy.

4. These broads are getting an American release. If so, let's hope it's not the same type of campaign Steps had, where the singles from their first British album were slapped together with half of their second for their U.S. debut.

    It was a response to a report in the ever dubious Daily Star on the weekend which suggested they'd be recording with him.

    Popjustice wrote that the new album is shaping up to be pretty amazing, so I'm not worried at all.

    OK, I'm glad they are getting a US release, but come on...why can't we get Girls Aloud as well???

    Oh, please.

    Gwen's last album sold alright, but it also had one of the biggest singles of the year on it. Hardly a flop.
