Bono: 'I Want To Join Girls Aloud'

February 19, 2009
Bono: 'I Want To Join Girls Aloud'U2 frontman Bono has heaped praise on Girls Aloud and joked he would like to become the sixth member of the group.

The 48-year-old singer was speaking to The Sun at Earl's Court yesterday, when he made the joke saying he'd always wanted “to be in Girls Aloud”.

Bassist Adam Clayton then asked: “Which one?”

Enthusing about the five-piece, who scooped Best Single at the Brit Awards for 'The Promise', Bono blathered: “Seriously, I think Girls Aloud are at the cutting edge of pop music. They are a great band and deserve to be centre stage.

“They have everything a pop band should have - songs, the look, it’s all there.”

Bono – real name Paul Hewson – continued that Girls Aloud are kindred spirits with U2: “We see ourselves as contemporaries of bands like Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, Interpol and even Girls Aloud.

“We have been doing this a long time but I still get the same nerves about releasing an album as I did in the early days.

“The difference now is for new bands. They are under so much pressure to release their material for free.

“It’s different for us, we have a loyal fan base who buy our records. We can also make money from touring, thanks again to our fans, who go out and buy tickets.”
