Bono's Girls Aloud Dream

U2 frontman BONO harbours a secret singing ambition - he'd love to be the sixth member of British girlband GIRLS ALOUD.
The Beautiful Day hitmaker and his band kicked off the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday night (18Feb09) with their forthcoming track Get On Your Boots, before Girls Aloud took to the stage for a rendition of their award-winning hit The Promise.
And impressed onlooker Bono found himself longing to perform with the pop stars, telling British newspaper The Sun he wants "to be in Girls Aloud".
He says, "Seriously, I think Girls Aloud are at the cutting edge of pop music. They are a great band and deserve to be centre stage. They have everything a pop band should have - songs, the look, it's all there."
And even though their musical styles are so different, Bono still sees himself on a level with the glamorous singers.
He adds, "We see ourselves as contemporaries of bands like Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, Interpol - and even Girls Aloud."
