Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts admits she felt sad and angry when the band went on hiatus as she didn't know what to do with herself.
The 26-year-old, who went her way from bandmates Sarah Harding, Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh in 2009, struggled to decide what to do with her life when the group began their break.
"Before I started making the album, I felt so frustrated that I wasn't making music and I felt like I couldn't see music in my life for a long time. I didn't know how I was going to have music in my life until the band had another record,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Roberts as saying.
"It really made me sad. I felt like I wanted to be a singer and I used to write little and then all of a sudden the band went on a break and management were trying to find different things for me to do, this TV work, that TV work, and it was just like, This is really sad, actually. Really not sitting well with me at all,” she added.
