Sadly, fans of the famous British girl group Girls Aloud are forced from now on to settle only with “whole lotta history” of their music together, so they should never expect “something new” anymore. Following the memorable live performance at Echo Arena in Liverpool on March 20th, 2013, as the last show of their sixth concert tour entitled “Ten: The Hits Tour”, the all-girl pop group officially announced their split.
Nevertheless, the group s commitment, gratefulness and respect for their dedicated fans in the UK should be acknowledged and saluted – back in November 2002, Girls Aloud formed live on television, in front of millions of British viewers who voted for them and ten years later, the group decided to disband in full glory, but only after performing live, for the last time together, in front of their supportive fans in the UK. Their sixth and final tour was Girls Aloud s first concert tour in four years, after “Out of Control Tour” 2009, due to a three-year hiatus.
After a little over a decade together, Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts have decided to part ways and pursue exclusively solo careers. Cheryl Cole has been already very successful as a solo artist since 2009, when she released her first studio album entitled “3 Words”. Except for Kimberley, who currently focuses on a television and film career, the rest of Cheryl s former band mates are working at the moment on their own music albums.
Their last concert tour together, aimed at the promotion of their second greatest hits album entitled “Ten” ( released in 2012) turned out to be an unannounced farewell tour, which was presented by the famous British jewellery manufacturer Pandora and it consisted of 20 shows in the UK and Ireland. The first show took place on February 21st, 2013 at Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle and until March 7th, 2013 the girls continued their tour in England, performing louder than ever in Sheffield, Birmingham (2 shows), London (3 shows) and Manchester ( 3 shows).
On March 9th, 10th and 11th the girls performed in Glasgow, Scotland, on March 13th and 14th in Belfast, Northern Ireland and on March 16th they performed for the last time in front of their Dublin fans. The girls returned to England on March 19th when they showed “something kinda ooh” , Aloud-style, to their Nottingham fans. The girls ended their tour on March 20th, when they performed “The Show” of their lifetime, marking the end of the music of a generation, whose legacy will undoubtedly live on for decades to come – that s a “Promise” from the UK s biggest selling all-girl group of the 21st century!
Kimberley Walsh will be on ‘Sweat The Small‘ stuff on BBC3, a panel show presented by Nick Grimshaw.
Kimberley will be on the show this Tuesday 21st May at 10pm. An extended broadcast will be shown on 26th May with an extra 15 minutes of what the panel are #sweatingit about.
Kimberley will be on a team with Aston Merrygold and Rickie Haywood Williams, against Rochelle Humes and Russell Kane.
According to today’s papers – which we all know by now not to believe until we hear from official sources – Nadine is to set up a girlband.
‘When she was in Girls Aloud, Nadine always wanted to be the leader but it never worked out like that. By putting together her own band, she can take control and also reap the financial rewards.’ a source told The Mail On Sunday.
Nadine’s tweets were obvious that she loved being in the band again, when they reunited for the Tour, so it could be easy to think that this story is true. However, don’t get your hopes up too high until we hear more of it!
Just spotted that the story is “nonsense” and that Nadine remains “completely committed” to her second solo album.
An insider revealed: “Nadine is working on her own material, so I don’t know where this nonsense story has come from. She’s completely committed to her next album and has been working in the studio since Girls Aloud split.”
Cheryl led the L’Oréal brand ambassadors on a rainy red carpet for the premiere of Jimmy P (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian) at the Cannes International Film Festival on the night of 18 May 2013.

British singer Cheryl might be an international superstar, but when we met up with her one morning during the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival in the ritzy Martinez hotel, our time together was as comfortable as if we were just girlfriends hanging out. During that window– before Cheryl put on her dress and began her hair and makeup preparations for that evening’s red carpet event– we managed to talk about makeup and beauty on the inside.
CRC: What are the beauty products you cannot live without?
Cheryl: My telescopic mascara, because if you feel tired or if you look a bit rough after a long day’s work, a bit of mascara can make you feel a lot better.
CRC: Do you have any good beauty tips you would like to share with us?
Cheryl: I make sure that I wash my face every night and thoroughly moisturise because that’s when your skin rejuvenates overnight and you have all those hours of just resting and not being exposed to any elements. Don’t sleep in your make-up because it blocks your pores. Just be sensible really, take care of your skin.
CRC: What advice would you give to women to help them feel beautiful every day?
Cheryl: You can use all the make-up that you like but it comes from inside. As much as people say that’s a cliché, it’s so true. If you feel beautiful on the inside, it shows on the outside and the mascara enhances that beauty. So, you have to be happy with you, you know, which is not always easy but you’ve got to try.
CRC: What does the Cannes Film Festival mean to you?
Cheryl: It’s glamour at its highest, you know, beauty, glamour, celebratory. It’s just a really amazing thing to be a part of.
CRC: What does being a L’Oréal Paris ambassador at Cannes mean to you?
Cheryl: It means that I feel like I have a really good rapport with women from the UK, especially, and my fan base. It just means that I get to talk to them directly. And you asking me for helpful beauty tips– I love, I can share those. I’ve been in the industry for ten years now so I’ve picked up a lot of tips along the way. It’s just really a perfect relationship that I have with L’Oréal Paris, so it’s fantastic.
CRC: In your make-up bag for Cannes, what would we find?
Cheryl Cole: You will find Telescopic mascara. I also have a new colour riche lipstick. It actually says collection by me! So yeah, and you will also find tissues… cotton buds. Cotton buds are always good if your eyeliner has gone a bit wonky, a cotton bud can correct that so I always have those. Um, bronzer, I have this bronzer compact, actually, that is half light, half dark to use to contour, (in a hushed voice) I like a bit of contour. So yeah, that’s about it.
CRC: What would your perfect red carpet make-up be?
Cheryl: It depends on what you’re wearing. So sometimes if you’re dressed a certain way, I’d say you have to kind of go for the alternative. So if you’re dress is full-on, sparkles, glitz, glamour, everything, then your make-up needs to be toned down and your hair needs to be toned down because if you do too much of everything, it’s not nice. So, if your dress is simple, you can go crazy with the hair and crazy with the make-up. It really depends on what your wearing. And what you’re feeling on the day, too! Sometimes, I might just want to go crazy and have diamonds and glitz and crazy hair. And the weather’s not very inspiring today, but we’ll get there!
And get there she did.
Cheryl has made her way to the annual Cannes Film Festival, as part of being an ambassador for L’Oreal Paris.
The journey got to a rocky start last night, as she landed at the airport. Her PR Lily tweeted about the flight:
Cheryl literally crying with laughter at how scared @garrytweedy and @supersonicpr were of the turbulence #cruelsister #wasfunnythough #mystomachhurtsfromlaughingtoomuch
Pictures of Cheryl at the airport can be found [HERE]
Today, she has been interviewed by L’Oreal and French media. Cheryl tweeted how she was lucky to be doing them:
Talking about L’Oreal all day.. and they call this a job?? I’m a lucky girl!! #Cannes2013
More twitpics from the interview can be found [HERE]
Before the big moment, all the L’Oreal Paris Ambassadors met and were photographed together!
Megan Gale, Doutzen Kroes, Eva Longoria, Cheryl and Jane Fonda,
And finally the moment we have all been waiting for, the red carpet!
Cheryl attended the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Premiere, in a stunning red gown by designer Zuhair Murad (thanks to @ChezzaStyle).

“Dear @kimkardashian. Hi Gorgeous lady! Just wanted to send you a tweet to say I think you are an incredibly beautiful woman inside and out.. I can only imagine how tough it is to be heavily pregnant and feeling extremely vulnerable on top of some of the daily criticism you take! I admire your tenacity and send you my best wishes with the rest of your pregnancy #enjoyyourblessing x”
Kim was quick to respond back:
“@CherylCole your message really touched me! Thank you so much for the support & positivity! Its so important for women to feel confident & at peace during this amazing time! Your sweet tweet really made me smile! Xoxo “
Who knew Cheryl was a ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ fan!
Inundated with tweets from fans worrying over their exams, Cheryl tweeted some advice.
So many of u stressing over your exams which is completely understandable but let me give you a little advice….
No amount of worrying or loosing sleep will change the outcome that I promise..
All you can do is your best. If you’re unsure ask someone who knows for help and make yourself sure …
She also attached the amusing picture above and wrote
Also, Reduce your use of twitter until its done !!!! Lol! It works.. No distractions #goodluck
That is all..
