Sugababes star Keisha Buchanan hopes to emulate Beyonce Knowles by taking time out from a hit girl band and forging a successful solo career.
The British pop singer, who is the only remaining original member of the trio after Siobhan Donaghy's exit in 2001 and Mutya Buena quit last year (05), admits she needs to take a break from the British band to focus on her own ideas.
The PUSH THE BUTTON star insists bandmates Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah have similar ambitions but denies the band will permanently spilt, despite their solo aspirations.
She says, "We all want to do solo careers.
"It is something we talk about a lot. We love what the girls in DESTINY'S CHILD did by going off and then getting together again later. I am sure things will happen naturally.
"I think we need to take a break soon so that I can enjoy being me. People have said to me, 'Tell me about yourself,' and all I could say was, 'I'm a Sugababe.' That really upset me for a long time.""
