It looks like Alexandra’s ‘explosive’ interview with Marie Claire hasn’t gone down too well on the home front!

Via The Sunday Mirror

Melissa Bell, a singer with Eighties group Soul II Soul – spoke out just days after X Factor winner Alexandra, 21, attacked her in an interview.

Alexandra claimed Melissa was filled with jealousy after Alexandra won the ITV show and then went on to have a Christmas No1 with Hallelujah, her only hit so far.

But seriously-ill Melissa, 45, said the hurtful accusations are totally untrue.

“It’s all very upsetting,” she told the Sunday Mirror. “And she’s not even a success herself yet. I hope she is, but we don’t even know how her follow-up single is going to do.”

Melissa, who suffers from kidney disease, has also rubbished Alexandra’s claim that she was kicked out of home at 16.

She added: “I have certain rules. In Caribbean families you have to respect your parents. She needed to experience life, to see if the grass is greener – and she did. I don’t know where she went but the door was always open.”

Soul II Soul had a British No 1 with Keep On Moving in 1989. They were also a huge success in America, where they won a Grammy Award.

But last week Alexandra claimed mum Melissa, now living on benefits in a council house in North London, was finding it hard in her shadow.

In the interview with Marie Claire magazine, Alexandra said: “Soul II Soul didn’t last as long as she wanted. Then I get this big new show, I win it and it’s weird for her.” Continue Reading…..

What a sad sad state of affairs.

WHITNEY HOUSTON PERFORMS ‘I LOOK TO YOU’ ON GERMAN TV’S WETTEN DAS

I am really happy because Whitney’s voice is still there! This is the best she has sounded in sometime.

Ok it isn’t exactly the same voice we all grew to know and love back in the 80s/90s but this was a good effort.

Check out the studio audience’s reaction at the end. People are just happy she’s back.
