Former Girls Aloud Member Disses Fifth Harmony For Wearing 'Next to Nothing' (And Fans Aren't Having It)
Harmonizers aren't happy with former Girls Aloud member Sarah Harding, who slammed Fifth Harmony for wearing "next to nothing" and dressing "slutty" on Monday's (Aug 14) episode of British reality show Celebrity Big Brother.
After acknowledging the "Down" girl group as "those slutty ones," during a conversation with housemate Chad Johnson, Harding continued, "they wear next to nothing, all the girls with bands these days. Slutty, slutty, slutty, sex sells, sex sells."
"Obviously when we were touring, we didn't wear much, because it was so hot," she added of her former English-Irish pop girl group. "We used to have to have proper dance routines. They just do slut drops now, they're wearing little panties and stuff."
Both Girls Aloud and Fifth Harmony had five original members and were formed on reality talent competition shows -- Girls Aloud on British series Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, while Fifth Harmony came together through The X Factor in 2012.

Of course, Fifth Harmony's super-passionate fans didn't take Harding's comments lightly. They immediately took to Twitter with a firestorm of tweets defending 5H, even including the hashtag #SarahHardingisOverParty.
