Dang... I'm missing Girls Aloud already. 2 days ago on the 20th March 2013 they've announced that they're officially splitting up for good. It's gonna be hard to look in a different direction for a new source of inspiration, especially when they're already gone and I'm still on writer's block. So, I'm currently listening to their songs to relive those nostalgic memories. It's just not the same without them. I wonder what went wrong between them? But we all know that it might have been Cheryl or Nadine's fault that they're no more. Or the fact that they're aren't doing so well in the charts these days. Their last single, "Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me", pretty much says it all and proves that without Nadine being the lead singer as usual, the song failed to be in the top ten, let alone the top 20. I had a feeling that song would flop, regardless of how beautiful, sureal and soothing the song is. Furthermore, I were uncertain of that song in the first place. Money could be another reason why they longer have good chemistry. Money can corrupt anyone sometimes and occassionally, they can't buy anybody happiness.
Fortunately, I were lucky enough to finally see them in their final concert on Thursday 7th March 2013 at the Manchester Arena so I could witness their phenomenal magic for the last time.
Throughout the years since I've first heard of them back in my high school days, they've inspired my fanfictions, fanart, artwork, written work, writing style, song fanfictions, poetry etc and I still find it hard to believe that they're no longer with us. To be honest, I love them for the neverending inspiration and phenomenal, but brilliantly amazing, songs, music and lyrics rather than their looks.
Here's the message that Girls Aloud left on their official Facebook page: "
Dear Alouders, we just want to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you!! This tour has been an amazing experience and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade. It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter!! Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together . Love you lots.
GA x ♥ x"
I just hope girl bands like Little Mix, Stooshe, Mutya Keisha Siobhan (or MKS) fill up the massive black void Girls Aloud left in our souls. Goodbye Girls Aloud, I will always remember you in the years to come and hopefully, your legacy will live on in our hearts.
