It's A Sugababes Vs. Leona Lewis Monday!

Drama-riddled Sugababes' new single "About A Girl"—not, incidentally, a Nirvana cover, rock fans—is out this week in the U.K., but it's facing some pretty stiff competition from the return of Ryan Tedder's #1 balladeer, Leona Lewis.

LeLe had the advantage of performing her snooze-inducing dirge "Happy" on The X Factor last night. But Sugababes have the advantage of singing the far better song. Plus, it's produced by RedOne—c'mon, all the kidz love RedOne these days!

Also, the "About A Girl" vid was shot just outside of Los Angeles at one of D'luv's favorite hiking haunts, the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park:

In fact, my feet feel 20 times sexier knowing that the 'babes have done the same dance routines *I* usually do in the middle of the sand there!

Marvel at this sexy pic I took there in May. Marvel, I say:

And, look, I don't care who's in this band at this point. As long as the songs are good, I'll keep listening.

Hey, wait—maybe the next time they kick one of these broads out on their ass, they can wrangle in Leona Lewis to replace her!

    Agreed "About A Girl" is the more fun track. Surely.

    I still feel like the 'Babes should get a new name, though. Using the term "brand" just feels so...corporate.

    Am so not loving the Leona album.

    I have rejected Subabab4s like a bad organ transplant. Since when did talent or songs matter? I've been buying Dannii Minogue for 20 years without complaint over the iffy material-sheesh! Leona sucks but Sugabab4s suck more.

    Mel, yeah, you might be right about that. It's hardly the good ol' 'babes anymore, no?

    Will, haven't heard it, though that admittedly may be from purposeful avoidance.

    Jump!, HA! True, true re: Dannii. Do we *ever* expect a new—no a real new—album from her?

    I suspect Leona will win this race. You just can't compete with appearing on the x factor - it put alexandra, cheryl and JLS on top (well contributed to it) and boosted singles by Whitney and the Boob. (Sorry Bon Jovi). I quite like 3 songs from Leona's album!

    Leona Lewis is still alive? I thought after she broke her leg they had to shoot her.
