Recently, in an interview with UK’s Radio 1 Newsbeat, former Girls Aloud band member, Nicola Roberts, age 30, revealed that she does not plan on releasing her own solos at the moment. She has been writing songs for other artists for the past few years and that’s exactly what she plans to continue for the time being.
“At the minute I’ve just been taking time to write for other artists,” said Nicola to the British Radio station. “It’s been four years since Cinderella’s Eyes, and in that four years I’ve changed quite a lot as a person… I think you need time to figure out the sounds you are inspired by and I’ve got some really exciting artists cutting some songs that I’m really excited by,” she added.
The singer/songwriter released her own makeup range, Dainty Dolls, to bring pale skin 'in style', in the year 2008. About her new venture she said, "I have pale skin myself and I know how difficult it can be to find the right sort of sexy look with the products already out there."
"For years I felt like the ugly one in Girls Aloud. I was tall, skinny, with red hair and the whitest skin you've ever seen – standing next to to four of the most gorgeous girls in Britain.’
"I was the ugly one, the odd one out.
"People on radio and TV started making nasty comments about me and I felt awful."
So now, after her new venture, she said, “Hopefully I can help a lot of girls out there to look their best”.
Despite the inferiority complex, Nicola has always stood up for her friends. Roberts, who has 424K followers on Twitter, had taken to social media Instagram to defend her former band member/ best friend Cheryl Cole, who was criticized for having married her boyfriend of just 3 months, Jean-Bernard.
After launching her own makeup range, she also advocated anti-tanning. Roberts, who had herself used a hundreds of tanning products to ‘blend in’ with her band members, released a documentary, highlighting the dangers of tanning.
Nicola, height 5’5”, who was never a big fan of her nose, went through a plastic surgery and got a plastic one instead. After the surgery, she went through cosmetic dentistry to get a perfect set of pearly whites and laser skin therapy to get flawless freckle-free skin.
In the year 2014, Nicola broke up with businessman boyfriend of six years, Charlie Fennel. Even after her breakup, Nicola seemed to be enjoy flying solo.
"Nicola is really enjoying being single again. She's been back out partying loads and is really enjoying making new friends and being out at showbiz parties,” a source told Daily Mail.
Hope she finds the perfect man soon!!
