Sugababes and Spice Girls and all that's nice, that's what girl groups are made of. We take a look at girl groups through the ages.

Girl power: the all-time best girl groups

Girl groups are all about hitting women with a dose of female empowerment, but without any danger of alienating the boyfriend — potential or otherwise, writes Bob Dobson.

When watching the average girl band video she will see strong, assertive women comfortable in their sexuality, kicking a no-good boyfriend's ass to the curb. He sees hot chicks dancing. Meet our favourite nine girl groups from the last forty years.

The Supremes The Supremes
The Supremes weren't the first girl group when they started in 1961, but with a liberal dash of Motown glam they became one of the biggest acts of the '60s and supposedly the inspiration for the film Dreamgirls. Read more

Spice Girls Spice Girls
The Spice Girls gimmick can be summed up in two words: Girl Power! (TM). So what is Girl Power (TM)? Girl Power (TM) is a vague philosophy with obvious feminist overtones that doesn't stand up to much actual analysis. Read more

Bardot Bardot
The appeal of Bardot was watching everyday people turn into stars and then, as the band dissolved, crash back into reality. Hey, it's not rock and roll if there's nowhere to fall. Read more

Pointer Sisters Pointer Sisters
The Pointer Sisters' time as pop sensations was marked by great big hits and great big shoulder pads. And until recently, all members of the group were actual sisters. Read more

Pussycat Dolls Pussycat Dolls
Pussycat Dolls is six really hot women dancing and singing. Their gimmick is a clever marketing ploy by Hollywood executives to transform a Vegas dance act into an international money making sensation. Read more

All Saints All Saints
All Saints were more low key than their obviously manufactured competitors, The Spice Girls. While filling this niche was no doubt important, what also helped was their continued success as the Spice Girl train derailed. Read more

Destiny's Child Destiny's Child
The gimmick Destiny's Child has today is being ultra-famous. How they became ultra-famous is anyone's guess though number one hits like 'Bills, Bills, Bills' would have helped this progression to pop-stardom. Read more

TLC TLC
TLC were the female version of Will Smith as the Fresh Prince of Bell Air. Playful, fun, smart and, though they didn't play it up, oh so sexy. Read more

Bananarama Bananarama
While best remembered for fun and indulgent video clips full of tasty man-candy, Bananarama were also big on the girl-power, sisters-doing-it-for-themselves message. Read more

Best news ever! Beyonce and Jay Z are working on a 'huge' new album together MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Sep 17 2014 12:52PM

Please let this be true.

Rumour has it that Beyoncé and Jay Z are working on a "huge" new album together, only days after wrapping their On The Run tour in Paris. Erm, don’t these two have any down time?

Dash Radio's DJ Skee broke the news on air after getting word of the collaboration from sources close to #CampCarter, adding that the album will be released in late 2014 or early 2015.

Which ultimately means we should all stop what we're doing and start an album countdown. Unless they plan to drop it on us like Bey's surprise album last December…

It's been a crazy few days for the Carter clan, with speculation that the couple were expecting their second bub.

That is, before Queen Bey singlehandedly squashed those rumours with a simple snap of her sipping champers earlier today.


Yeah ok Bey, we get it.

Perhaps she was toasting to the new album?

Revenge rap! Big Sean disses 'crazy' ex Naya Rivera in new song MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Sep 16 2014 9:59AM

Warning! Big Sean isn’t quit over his split with Naya Rivera.

The rapper has thrown some serious shade at his "crazy" ex-fiancé Naya, with new revenge anthem 'I Don't F--- With You'.

With lyrics such as 'I dodged a bullet', his break-up beat has all the ingredients of a messy split…including the diss and dismiss of Naya's new-hubby Ryan Dorsey. Have a listen above!

The pair split in April this year, after 27-year-old Naya reportedly discovered her rapper beau's cheating ways. Which technically means SHE dodged the bullet.

Soon after the accusations were made, a #CampSean rep told US Weekly: "The recent rumours reported by so-called or fake sources are simply untrue.

"Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they continue to work through their issues privately."

Yep, it sure looks like it.
