The Saturdays want to ‘rule the world’

The Saturdays say they could never compete with Girls Aloud as they weren’t “given millions of fans” overnight.

The girl band have been around for three years, and are tired of being compared to Girls Aloud. Both groups are known for producing catchy pop records, but The Saturdays insist that is where the similarity ends.

Girls Aloud – comprising Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh – were formed on a UK talent programme, whereas The Saturdays were not.

“We can’t compete with Girls Aloud. How can we?” asked Rochelle Wiseman. “Although we’re on our eighth single we haven’t had millions of fans given to us overnight, we’ve had to work for it.”

Una Healy agreed: “We didn’t arrive on a TV show like Girls Aloud where everybody knew their names before they released a record. We were unknown, so it was harder.”

Girls Aloud are currently taking a break to concentrate on solo projects, and The Saturdays – Rochelle, Una, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford and Vanessa White – admit that has made things easier for them. They know more girl groups will come out in the future, but they hope it won’t be for some time yet.

“We want to rule the world, we don’t need anyone else,” laughed Frankie.
