Saturdays set for new solo careers as Una, Mollie and Vanessa go separate ways


Not that this article is saying much more than we didn’t know already, as I posted previously I would be shocked if by Christmas this year we hadn’t had seen three solo releases … and now being reported by The Mirror!

They’ve been standing side by side on stage for eight years, but now 3am can reveal THREE members of five-piece girl group The Saturdays are launching solo careers.

Una Foden, Mollie King and Vanessa White have been in separate studios working on their own music.

While the girls are hoping to release their new solo material by the end of the year, we hear that they’re each going for a very different sound.

Irish songbird Una, 33, who has two children with rugby player hubby Ben Foden, is the closest to signing a record deal and has been honing an acoustic, country sound with her guitar and songwriting skills.

Pop princess Mollie , 27, has been polishing off a disco vibe with an 80s feel and a big Kylie Minogue influence. She is close behind Una in securing record label backing.

Meanwhile, the girlband’s youngest member – party girl Vanessa, 25 – is experimenting with an R&B feel, inspired largely by Rihanna. She is trying to find edgy tracks that show off her impressive vocal range.

The Saturdays are still signed to Polydor, but are having a breather from releasing music as a group.

The move comes as Rochelle Humes, 26, focuses on her TV and presenting work and Frankie Bridge, 26, prepares to give birth to her second child.

An insider tells us: “Una, Mollie and Vanessa are all really excited and a
bit nervous about releasing their solo material, but it’s been a long time in the pipeline.

“The girls are still a band, but they’re all happy to work on their own solo projects. It means there’s no animosity or frustration between them – it’s a set-up which works really well.”

Vanessa Birthday Book 2012

As you know we had a huge success with Mollie’s official 2012 birthday book which ended up with ourselves – @thesatscouk, @marvelousmollie and @claireteamsats presenting the book to Mollie in person at Birmingham Pride. We are therefore more than delighted to help spread the word about Vanessa’s birthday book and everyone involved with that. Excited? Well of course you are so here is how you can get involved!! This is a huge project being undertaken and there are many ways for you to be involved, so please read it carefully and if you have any questions please direct them to the wonderful people involved with this project as they are better placed to answer them then we are!

EVERYTHING SHOULD BE SENT TO [email protected]. The deadline is September 1st.

As usual, we’re looking for as many messages from fans as possible. Messages, poems, graphics, pictures are all welcome.  I’m hoping to hand make a lot of this book in order for it to be even more personalised and unique, so each page will be totally different from the last.
Due to this, I’m hoping to hand write a lot of your messages (in various fonts.. ;P) and print out any pictures/graphics etc you may send with it and stick them on your page also.  If, however, you wish for your page to all be typed, or you want to incorporate your message into a graphic or such, then that’s fine also, just make sure to let us know when you email it. 🙂

Any drawings you may have done over the years of Vanessa are welcome to make up the fan drawings section.  (Send these in with DRAWINGS as the subject in the email.)

Send in your favourite tour pictures from any 3 of the tours! We want your funny, cute and gorgeous ones! (Send these in with TOUR PHOTOS as the subject in the email).

Vanessa’s tweets which made you laugh (if you have any screencaps, they’d be fab!). They can be just her random tweets, her twapes, or anything else that made you smile/laugh.  (Send these in with TWEETS as the subject in the email.)

Your favourite Vanessa quotes, they can be from flips or 24/7 or What Goes On Tour or anything else you can think of.  (Send these in with QUOTES as the subject of the email.)

On one of the pages we want to write “Happy Birthday Vanessa!” out of letters on the beach. This could be made out of pebbles/shells, or drawn in the sand.

However, if you currently have a letter but realise at any point that you won’t be able to get to a beach after all, please let us know so someone else can have your letter!

For those with a letter:
All letters should be capitalised. When you’re done, take a photo (with JUST the letter in the picture) and send it in with ‘THE BEACH PROJECT’ as the subject in the email.

These are the type of things we’re looking for:
One Heather did today out of pebbles.
One Cat created in Cyprus a while ago:

We’re going to do a ‘MEET TEAM SATS’ section. Its basically going to be able to put faces to names…

What you need to do is email us a picture of yourself (not necessarily sats related but you’re obviously welcome to anything you want- a pic that you like) and with your picture send in a brief paragraph making sure you include all of this information

Then we’ll put it all into a factfile type thing and it will just help Vanessa get to know you abit more- she’ll know who the people who are supporting her are 🙂

At some point, i’ll be making an example page so if you’re a bit confused or unsure of the idea, dont hesitate to ask for the example on here or on my personal @hannanar 🙂  Send with ‘MEET TEAM SATS’ as the subject title for the email.
Okay, this one is fairly simple but we want as many of you as possible to get involved, it doesn’t take too much effort!
Basically, if you have a dog, we want you to take a picture of him/her with a sign that simply says ‘Happy Birthday Vanessa!’

We’re going to create a little Team Sats’ dogs page because we all know Ness loves her dogs! So this is a kind of example to what we want to see, but obviously with a sign that says ‘Happy Birthday Vanessa’ instead. 🙂 Email all of your doggy pictures (along with your twitter name) with the subject ‘Team Sats’ Dogs’ in the email.

We want to make a small collage of words that make up certain song lyrics that describe Vanessa. Previously some of you may have been involved with various lyric videos for The Sats, where you hold a sign with a word on it. This is, in effect, what we’re trying to create here, but even better. We want you to actually find the words while you’re out and about. Whether it be on big bus stop posters, shop adverts, on a card in a card shop, or even on various packets.

We want this project to be fun for YOU too, and maybe a little bit challenging!

The lyrics we want to try make out are:

“Vanessa, our love for you is stronger than love itself.”

“You drain us of sadness, and fill us back up with love.”

“You’re like this beat yes, crazy and infectious.”

These are the only words still available:


If you find a word we need WITHIN another word, or the wanted word has ‘ed’/’s’ etc on it, just cover it up with your hands. 😉

WE WANT YOU IN THE PICTURE TOO! It’s no use without you, we could’ve got them off google. 😛 So we want pictures of you at bus stops, in front of adverts etc etc.

We REALLY REALLY hope you get involved with this one. It is quite a demanding project, but it’s one of the more fun ones and most creative.
We just want you all to have a good crack at it, don’t give up before you’ve even tried!
You’ll be surprised with how much fun you could have with this!

There’s only really one other rule to this; NO HAND WRITING/TYPING YOUR WORD. The whole point is to find it.
If you’re really struggling to find a word, you can always grab a newspaper or a book and highlight the word in there and take a picture with it. 🙂

Any pictures of the words you take can be emailed with ‘Out-And-About Words Project’ as the email subject.

So what we want you to do is take a picture of yourself with a sign saying ‘I love you because…’ followed by a reason.
This could be something like ‘You’re piff’ or ‘you inspire me’; anything you want! However, we want these to be as original as possible to avoid any repeats!

But please don’t make it too long as we need to be able to read it on the piece of paper it’s put on!  Make it bold, fancy writing, jazz it up if you want!

This should be quite an easy project that many people can get involved in.

Please email all of your pictures with ‘I LOVE YOU BECAUSE…’ as the email subject title. If you have any questions tweet or DM us on here, or tweet me on my personal @teamnessw for this project.

We really hope you get involved with all/as many as you can of these!
We want to make Vanessa’s birthday book this year the best it can be, and that can’t happen without YOUR input!

If you have any questions AT ALL about any of the above, feel free to tweet/dm us on this account, my personal @catluvsthesats, or @heatherteamness, @hannanar, @teamfranessa, @noorthesats, @teamnessw.

Much love, Team Ness xxx

On Set With …

Another @TheSaturdays program for you to all enjoy 🙂 This is On Set With … or in other words; Making The Video: Notorious

In this new video, we are taken behind the scenes and on set with the girls as they film their new music video for the hot new single Notorious – remember to buy and keep promoting, we need the single high on iTunes when the physical is out in several weeks – hopefully the girls will actually do some more promo! *fingers crossed*

Vanessa: “Our new music is much sexier”

It’s been a long time since we heard any music from the Saturday’s girls but with their new album fast approaching we caught up with the lovely Vanessa at the New Look Style the Nation with T4 launch to have a chat about it.

Vanessa who was looking super cute in a NL jumpsuit AND had a snazzy new haircut (jel? Us?) told us that their new album’s going to have a sexier vibe.

“Our new album’s going to be a lot sexier than our old one, it’s definitely a different sound, we’re really excited about it,” said Vanessa, “We’ve all grown up a bit now and that shows. It’s also a lot more R‘n’B than anything we’ve done before, it’s a very cool. Every time I think about the new single Notorious it makes me want to dance.”

EEK. Exciting!

Vanessa who spent the evening catching up with friends and dancing showing of her toned legs and admitted that she’s a bit like us when it comes to her exercise habits, “Sometimes I’ll get really into exercise and go to the gym all the time but then other times I’ll have a week off.”
