Stooshe have ”no rules.”
The ‘Love Me’ girl group – who were turned down by ‘X Factor’ boss Simon Cowell for being ”too risque”- are not afraid to speak their minds and stir controversy by rapping about sex.
Speaking at the vInspired awards, singer Alexandra Buggs exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ”We’re just not puppets. We’re going to say what we want, we don’t have stage names, we’re just us. Everything we do is known to us, we can relate to it, and everyone else can. The first few songs we put out were quite explicit, but we wanted to get it across in a light-hearted away. ”
Stooshe- which also includes Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold – said they aren’t like other girl groups because they don’t fight with each other over who gets to sing what part.
Karis added: ”I think the reason they don’t get along is because they’re all too similar. They’re all trying to do the same thing – they’re trying to be the prettiest, the sexiest. They’re all fighting to have that chorus, or that bridge on a song. There’s competition in everything! But with us, we’re like oh it’s your turn now. We’re competitive as one, as a team; but we’re not competitive within our band, and if you are there’s no longevity. ”
