Girls Aloud split

Girls Aloud

Girls Aloud have split, and properly this time, rather that just disappearing for a while. Or at least that’s what a statement seems to say that was put out on the tweets following the conclusion of the girl group’s tenth anniversary sort-of-comeback tour in Liverpool last night.

“Dear Alouders”, the note began. “We just want to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you! This tour has been an amazing experience and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade. It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter! Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together. Love you lots”.

A post-tour split announcement was sort of expected, especially in recent days, though most fans – particularly of the Liverpudlian variety – were hoping for some sort of emotional formal announcement during the last big show, rather than an extended tweet sent to their smartphones as they slept later that night. But whatever, that’s it people, the Girls are no longer Aloud.

PS: If any of the issues in this story have caused you emotional distress, Popjustice is on hand to offer possibly misguided hope regarding a future with Girls Aloud in it.
