British pop group Girls Aloud have split up, following the last night of their Ten reunion tour. A tweet from the band's official account on Wednesday night (March 20) said: "We have now come to the end of our incredible time together." The message was sent shortly after the five singers came off stage in Liverpool at the end of a 12-date UK tour. The band formed on the UK television show "Popstars: The Rivals" in 2002. Their first single "Sound of the Underground" went straight to the top of the British charts when it was released. An electric guitar played by John Lennon and George Harrison at the height of the Beatles' fame is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $300,000 at auction in May. The VOX custom-built guitar was played by the two late pop stars during the British band's "Magical Mystery Tour" period. Harrison used it to practice the 1967 song "I Am the Walrus," while Lennon played the guitar the same year while recording a video session for "Hello, Goodbye." It will go on display from April 16 to May 5 at the Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, Ireland, ahead of the New York auction. Beyonce has joined up with H&M to be the face of the brand's summer ad campaign. The R&B star will appear in the TV and print ads wearing items from the summer collection. The commercial will also feature a new song from Beyonce called "Standing on the Sun."
