Louis Walsh has said he thinks Girls Aloud have too much ‘baggage’. The X Factor judge briefly managed the group after they won the UK TV talent show ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ in 2002.
Louis Walsh said that he has great admiration for Nadine Coyle – and thinks that affected his relationship with her bandsmates Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding.
Louis said: “I don’t like working with them too much any more because there’s too much baggage and far too much politics.
“I always thought that Nadine was the star, that she was the real singer in the band, and the others held that against me.”
Louis, 58, also said he thought Cheryl Cole’s spectacular career change was down to her relationship with her footballer ex-husband Ashley Cole.
He saide: “Well, Cheryl married a footballer and she totally transformed herself. She’s a naturally beautiful woman and she’s a fashion icon now.
“But if you ask me why Victoria Beckham is famous, the answer is because she married a footballer.”
Girls Aloud have been on hiatus for the past year.
