Girls Aloud - What Will the Neighbours Say? + Album Re-issues

This is a really patronizing take on an unfortunate situation -- and one that we don't actually have a ton of insight into.

Dismissing any issues that may have existed between five grown women as "catty" or "petty" is condescending and reductive. While Cheryl and Nadine traded some barbs in the year or two after TEN, the ladies haven't actually aired much of their dirty laundry publicly. Despite all of the conjecture on this forum, we don't actually know the extent of the issues that did (or didn't) exist between them and it isn't our place to cast judgement on their perceived validity. They've collectively had five children and pursued a ton of other projects in the last ten years -- the fact that they decided not to work as Girls Aloud, or weren't all photographed together in that period doesn't mean that they were actively at odds or that it was time wasted.

All that being said, the united front that they have put on since Sarah's passing has been truly inspiring and a beautiful testament to her memory. It's bittersweet to see them together and I look forward to supporting their fundraising efforts and helping to honor Sarah's legacy.

All this!

The thing most people actively ignore is that you don't have to be friends with someone to work with him, you don't even have to like him, as long as you both keep it professional while you work.

They were perfection as a group, so I don't really care how they were behind the cameras.
