[New Music Video] Girls Aloud "Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me"

Girls Aloud came back cocky, full of swag and under a feminist banner with there first single in 3 years Something New. Admittedly, I didn't like the song, but I couldn't knock the empowering message behind it.

The group's new song, Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me, is also about empowerment. However, they seem to have forgotten about what they were saying five minutes ago, and have run back to their men- trampling over their feminist banners in the process- for their sense self-worth and security. What happened to "Go girls, go go go, We girls gonna take control, You boys better know know know"? (wow those Something New lyrics look even more hideous written down!)

The vocals are much better than on Something New- there's actually a melody this time- and Nicola Roberts gets a chance to show how much she's grown vocally since her brilliant solo album. But the soppy sentiment of the song remains stuck in my throat like a fish bone, and I can't get past that to appreciate anything else about Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me. Either that, or it's just a bland, middle of the road ballad that doesn't have that much going for it in the first place.

One is not happy!!



  1. I've posted this in the chatbox, but I'll post it again: don't give up hope. Listen to this godly track.

  2. Not hugely surprising that they followed with a ballad, it's cheesy but shows off Nicola's voice beautifully. Her vocal in the Children in Need version of this was great too.

  3. Lol I used that queen gif the other day in a gif war with a friend on Facebook, great minds think alike. I like this song, but only because of Nicola's rather lovely voice. The video is generic GA fair really.

  4. Nicola sounds great on this, but why can't the girl learn how to lipsynch for the videos?!

  5. Boring boring video....zzzzzzzzzz

  6. They should have just stayed away . They're ruining their legacy

  7. eh. i prefer little mix to them. lord knows they just came back to capitalize on the fact that girlbands were in again since LM won x factor.

  8. Howdy terrific blog! Does running a blog suh as this take a massive
    amount work? I've virtually no undserstanding dragons of Atlantis hack programming however I was hoping to start my
    own blog in the near future. Anyways, should you have any suggestions oor techniques
    for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I simply had to ask.
