Rumours, gossip and stuff we dreamt about last week. Welcome to the MP! Gossip Round Up starring GMD3, Girls Aloud, Stooshe, Parade and Little Mix.
Eagle-eyed MP!ers have let us know to look out for GMD3 on next week’s X Factor after seeing them in the trailer. We’ve heard, the boys – managed by The Wanted’s and The Saturdays’ old manager Jayne Collins – got 4 big YESs and have made it to the Judge’s Houses stage of the competition.
Are Girls Aloud back in the studio working on new music? YES. Are they working with long term collaborators Xenomania? YES. And, what’s this amazing new music for? Well, a loud-mouth pop star friend of MP! has told us that the Alouders are planning a Greatest Hits package featuring a few new songs. Bad news for those who were hoping for a new album from The Ginge & Co :(
In other girlgroup news… we’ve heard a couple of BIG record labels are interested in signing Parade after their free download of ‘Light Me Up’ got almost 60,000 plays on YouTube and Soundcloud. And if they’re not yet convinced, they will be after they hear the MASSIVE tune the girls recorded with Ed Drewett (the chap who wrote ‘Glad You Came’) and Tim Powell, which the girls were nice enough to play us recently. And don’t get us started on the song written to a dead person… yes, really.

Little Mix are set to top the charts later today with (proper) debut single ‘Wings’ and we’ve heard the second single is also massive. ‘Super Bass’ and ‘Rude Boy’ songwriter Ester Dean supposedly wrote the track. Wowza – the Little Mix album is starting to look very exciting. Boy’d.
After the massive never-ending success of ‘Black Heart’ have Stooshe changed their plans for their third single? We heard it was set to be the mental shout-a-long ‘Kiss Chase’ but has been replaced with the 60s stylings of ‘See Me Like This’. Who would’ve thought that the Technicolor group would subscribe to the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ (pop music) school of thought?
