On parting ways from Girls Aloud:
“We”ve definitely split. I know Nadine always said that she never thought we should say out loud the words “we”ve split,” but at the same time we don”t want to mislead the fans.”
On reuniting with the band in a few years:
“I hope to God I”m not turning up to Girls Aloud jumping around doing all the routines when I”m 45!”
On her “X Factor” days:
“The last “X Factor” series I did was too hard for me. I wasn”t right in my mind enough to give it my everything and be focused. And I wasn”t strong enough mentally. I”ve seen Simon [Cowell] since. Like, we”re friends again. But, I don”t talk about flagging to him. He”d have a meltdown.”
On saying goodbye to her 20″s:
“When I look at the 21-year-old me, I do not want to be that person. I was young and naive. I”m a hello of a lot wiser, a hell of a lot stronger, I”m just happier with me now. It”s weird but I”m not scared of it.”
