A UK gossip site is reporting that the three original members of the girl group Sugababes—Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena, and the completely brilliant Siobhán Donaghy, all of whom have left the band since it was formed way back at the turn of the millennium—are in negotiations to reform, and put out an album. This bit of rumormongering comes in the wake of the announcement that the forthcoming album by the current incarnation of the band, the American-audience-tilted Sweet 7, has been pushed back to next February amidst internal strife of the legal and medical sorts. And of course it raises the question of what the new/old version of the group would even call itself at this point. (Sugababes UK? The London Sugababes?) But the best aspect of this rumor is this little nugget…
On top of the new group deal, all three have been offered seperate solo deals as a bit of a sweetener.
And how convenient that Siobhán has been working on a new record! Oh man if this all works out—and of course there’s the possibility that it can get cocked up in multiple ways—I will totally send a fruit basket to whichever managerial type kicked Keisha out seven weeks ago.
