Published Mar 10, 2008Ever since Lily Allen charmed her way into CD collections by making us "Smile," it appears there is something in the water over in England that is turning female singer-songwriters into chart-topping powerhouses. One of them, Adele, is picking up on this.
The 19-year-old songstress behind the hit album 19 and single "Chasing Pavements" has told the Guardian that she's looking to assemble some sort of super girl group featuring the voices of Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, Kate Nash, Katie Melua and Adele herself, to "represent most women in the world." (What no Duffy?)
The "new Amy Winehouse" said to the UK paper: "If we were in a band I think it would be the best band ever. We're not afraid to speak our minds. [And] you don't need to be a doll with tanned legs, blonde hair, big boobs and good lips." Ooh! You just know somewhere in L.A. right now Brooke Hogan is trying to distinguish whether that was a jab at her.
Oddly enough, all five gals studied at BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in London. No word was given as to whether they'd name themselves BSFPA&T, though it certainly has a wonderfully awkward ring to it when you say it real fast.
