Girls Aloud are set to go up against Westlife in the UK singles chart, with the girls releasing their version of the Pointer Sisters’ 1984 hit ‘Jump’ while the veteran boy band releases ‘Mandy’ on 17 of November.
Louis Walsh, who manages both groups, says his money is on Westlife to acheive a higher poistion on the English charts.
“I only found out myself yesterday that they’re both releasing singles on the same day. But I think it will be Westlife who get to No 1 or something higher than Girls Aloud,” Louis said.
“The girls are competition winners, that’s all they are. Now they’ve got to serve their apprenticeship to prove themselves. They’ve got to mature.”

Kelly Osbourne of late has been standing up for her brother, Jack.
“I don’t understand why people make going into rehab a bad thing,” she said. “Every single person who wrote something about it probably does drugs.”
“Look, I love my brother like anything and my brother’s a better person to admit that he has a problem and go in and fix it. People should praise him and be like, wow, that’s amazing instead of ooh, that’s stupid.”
Fresh off the success from the hit, ‘Shake Ya Tailfeather’ featuring P Diddy and fellow St. Lunatic Murphy Lee, Nelly is at the top of the charts with another hit, ‘Iz U’.

Pink got a laugh out of her hit ‘Get The Party Started’ being adopted by Bally Total Fitness Gyms last year and which even spawned its own class and workout video.
“I like to firstly do yoga, kickbox and play sports,” she said.
“I like to skateboard. I don’t like gyms. No offence, but I have many gay friends who love pumping up their bodies and use gyms as a meeting place to meet like minded men. It’s cool for them though but not for me. Can you imagine I’m there sweating away like a pig and these beautiful boys are in place and cavorting away? The torture really. ”
“Anyway, I have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) so there is no way you could get me on a treadmill for longer than two minutes.”
