SUGABABES singers Mutya Buena and KEISHA BUCHANAN shocked onlookers by engaging in a passionate kiss backstage at London's CAPITAL FM CHRISTMAS LIVE CONCERT Thursday night (04DEC03).

The teenage pair have joined an ever-increasing list of female pop stars like Madonna, Pink and Britney Spears, who've gained headlines by locking lips with other women.

And the ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES group - whose other member is Heidi Range - admit they love kissing each other.

Mutya says, "As far as we're concerned I say if you want to kiss a girl, kiss a girl.

"Me and Heidi snog all the time. It's whatever floats your boat. It's no big thing.

"Tongues are too far, but lip on lip is cool. I'm always kissing my girlfriends."

Keisha says, "We're always kissing each other."
