The 25-year-old ladies’ man made sure his family were the first to know after he and his JLS bandmates decided to split – but gave his mother the shock of her life in the process.
‘First it was just a text saying, “I’ve got some news”. ” ‘So I called her and told her not to worry, and that me and the boys were going our separate ways. The whole experience was lived by all our families as much as us,’ he added Merrygold, who has just finished his first series as a judge on Sky series Got To Dance, has been tipped as the first of the foursome to go solo and bag a No. But the singer, who is dating dancer Sarah Richards, says he has no concrete plans apart from trying his hand at acting somewhere down the line.
He explained: ‘This is the first time I’ve faced a bit of a dilemma.
I plan to explore as many avenues as possible — with no pressure.
The options are kind of endless really, which is nice to have an array of music which I listen to. So the story behind it is, is that it’s like a show stopper.
So the definition being ‘Someone that can hold or stop a crowd with whatever talent it is that they posses’.
Aston Merrygold has revealed how his mum thought he had got somebody pregnant when he told her he had some ‘big news’.So for me, I wanted to draw from that old school saying, from all the showmen and showwomen of our time; James Brown, Justin Timberlake, Usher – They’re all showmen, they’re all the best in the business, so it’s kind of like a bit of a homage. I’ve got in mind when I would like it to come out but whether it’s ready – You know I wanted it to be out at the end of last year but I was just not totally happy with its finishing results, so that’s what pushed it back.It will definitely be (released) before the year is out because I want to put out a good couple of singles first before actually going to the album, instead of doing another single and going straight into it.So I was a bit like, my main thing about being an artist who is big on performance, I mean being in the studio is cool, the lifestyle is great and whatever else but it’s all about being on that stage and actually getting to perform in front of a ridiculous amount of people or it could even be a couple of people.It’s just about being whenever you’re on that stage.He teased: "I can't give away the juicy gossip just yet, The first people to know will be the fans. They'll know straight away: album, single, all that via my Twitter, Instagram and blog. Then they imploded, 'Luxury Comedy' got cancelled and so did 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks'.Noel Fielding frets to Alice Jones about being 'in limbo', the possibility of children and being the next Spike Milligan “I'm not Mr Weird,” says Noel Fielding.From his upcoming solo material to touring with Jason Derulo, this amazing showman has an incredible year in store for not only himself, but his Aimers too, as well as anyone else who gets the pleasure to witness this gentlemen’s raw talent. What sort of vibe/sound should we be looking forward to hear from your upcoming release? I’d say within the next couple of months, I think that’s the best way to put it – So not too long!
