The singer and her husband Stephen Belafonte are currently on a trip around the Far East and travelled to Malaysia from Singapore earlier this week.

Hot Legs: Sugababes Singer Jade Ewan Struts Her Stuff

August 15th, 2010 2:41pm EDT
They're called the Sugababes, but as far as we can tell there's only one babe.

Maybe they should rethink their name? New member Jade Ewan recently showed off her long, lean legs at a music festival in Zambujeira do Mar, Portugal.

Bandmates Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah also took the stage, but leggy Jade definitely outshone her singing partners.

The band just revealed they will start work on a new album next week. The disc will be the first with new member Jade, who rerecorded Keisha Buchanan's vocals on their previous release "Sweet 7" after being drafted into the band in September.

The pop trio recently signed to hip-hop mogul Jay-Z's Rock-A-Fella music label, and even though they have had little contact with their boss - they have become close pals with label mate Rihanna.

Band member Keisha Buchanan says, "Every time we're gonna hook up (with Jay-Z) he's off partying with Diddy or someone, but Rihanna has been a huge help to us."

"She's been like our fourth member, listening to all our songs and saying what she liked and ...

The My Heart Will Go On diva's cover of heavy rockers AC/DC's track You Shook Me All Night Long has been deemed "musical offensive" and placed atop a chart of the worst ever covers compiled by industry publication Total Guitar magazine.

Brit & Alex
Production legend Dallas Austin calls them "my new TLC." They're stopped in the street on a daily basis.

Keisha Buchanan Accuses Britney Spears' Management Of Exploitation

Keisha Buchanan
Sugababes star Keisha Buchanan has accused Britney Spears' management team of 'exploiting' the troubled singer. The Round Round hit maker insists Spears is unfit to be promoting her comeback album Blackout, and singles out the star's performance in the video for single Gimme More for criticism.

Buchanan believes Spears' label bosses are to blame for the star's 'soulless' appearance in the footage - and are risking her health and well being by forcing her to promote her career.

She says, "Whoever put Britney in that new video should be ashamed. The way she looks at the cameras pe...

British singer Sophie Ellis Bextor has criticised the Spice Girls for wearing skimpy outfits in the video for their comeback track Headlines. The Murder on the Dancefloor hitmaker is unimpressed by the band's attempts to prove to their fans they can be sexy like their younger rivals, such as Girls Aloud and Sugababes.

She says, "I don't like the video. I don't understand why they're singing in their underwear when they're talking about friendship. They are supposed to be singing about being friends - why do they have to be in their bra and pants to do that?"

September 28th, 2007 3:01pm EDT
Sugababe star Keisha Buchanan was jealous of "beautiful, blonde, stage school" band mate Heidi Range when she first joined the band - and "made her life hell". Buchanan, 23, admits she was rude to Range because she had been to stage school unlike the other members.

The singer felt Range, 24, did not deserve to join the Sugababes when Siobhan Donaghy left in 2001. Buchanan says, "I was a complete bitch to Heidi at first because I just couldn't get over the fact that we had been working hard from the age of 12 and then this girl comes from nowhere and has it handed to her on a plate.
