RBD is going the way of the dodo

So long, farewell, sayonara, adieu, adios:

According to a message on their official website, the pop group RBD announced that their upcoming concerts…will be the beginning of the end.

“All great projects [ed. ha!] need to transform in order to transcend and today we’re initiating that process”…

“We hope to reunite soon in each one of our individual shows and feel the magic that has been with us for the past four years” added the official message. [ed. personal translation]

RBD broke up since each member wanted to branch out on their own according to their press agent. Yet one of the group’s members- AnahĂ­- claimed in a chat session with fans that decreased concert attendance and album sales were really the “principal factor” behind the breakup. (Are you sure?)

Despite the musical retirement of RBD, rumor has it that puppet masters producers at Televisa will try to force convince them to star in a new telenovela in 2009.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to listen to some CafĂ© Tacuba, Javier Solis, and Tigres del Norte.
