Cheers, ladies… but not before a show
LEADING LADIES Beverley Knight, Amber Riley and Cassidy Janson don’t sing the same tune when it comes to boozing before a performance.
In an exclusive chat with GP, the all-female supergroup butted heads over whether or not they drink before shows.
‘A glass of red wine the night before… I don’t recommend it, but it does work,’ said CJ, star of West End smash Beautiful — The Carole King Musical.
But Glee-turned-Dreamgirls favourite Amber, 31, totally disagrees.
‘Do not knock one back before you go on stage,’ she said.
Beverley — former star of The Bodyguard — stayed out of it. ‘I don’t ever drink alcohol,’ she added. Minor squabbles aside, Bev, 44, insists there were no diva rows as the trio recorded debut album Songs from the Stage (out now). ‘I’ve had more stress doing my own records — with a bunch of men, I’ll have you know,’ she chuckled.
