Sarah excited about going solo
Sarah Harding is reportedly preparing to launch her own solo career.
The Girls Aloud singer would be the third band member to go it alone, following in the footsteps of Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle.
"I'm really looking forward to having the freedom to do my own thing - in the band we all have a say but we have to compromise; now I can do exactly what I want," she told the Daily Mirror.
Sarah, who is to head into the studio, is hoping to take a leaf out of Lady Gaga's books.
"I'm so excited about going into the studio. I haven't completely settled on what kind of music I'm going to make yet, but I would love it to be something like Lady Gaga," she said.
"She is the new Madonna as far as I'm concerned. When I saw her at the O2 a couple of weeks ago, I was blown away. She can really sing and perform."
