Well if Dean Piper is to be believed, the answer is an emphatic YES!
The “Celebrity & Showbiz Expert and Cultural Commentator” ran into Diney at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar Party (see previous entry). In Nadine’s own words:
“I know everyone’s been speculating about what we will do. It will be arena dates at the start of next year and we will have new music to go with it.
“One or two singles I would think. It depends on how well it goes with the tour announcement. If things work well, there’s enough demand and we’re all in the same head space as a band then who knows what could happen.
“I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the girls. It’s been a long time since we’ve all been in the same room together.”
That’s great news as far as I’m concerned. Being the sceptical so-and-so that I am, I’ll still hold back some excitement for when some truly official news comes in. But this looks as legit as we’re gonna get for now. Rejoice Girls Aloud fans, we’re getting our Girls back soon.
Nadz commented on the other girls too:
“I’ve been really worried about Sarah and I’m glad to see she’s getting better,”
“I’m thrilled Kimberley’s doing well on the West End and Cheryl and Nicola are working hard on their music.
“Everyone was so keen to put Cheryl and me against each other – but we just weren’t enemies. We are very different people musically, that’s all.”
She also commented on her own music work:
“I went with Tesco because I wanted to be in control and I’m proud of what I achieved. Cheryl was always going to do far better chart wise – she was on X Factor to begin with. I’ve spent six years in LA now – maybe I needed to be in the UK more.”
Finally, a comment on her ex-fiance Jason:
“Jason is still a part of my life and it has been a tricky one to let go of. We speak all the time and ultimately I guess it’s just complicated with us.”
It’s been a long time since we had some genuine Nadine news to write about and it’s great that it’s such a positive article.
