The 30-year-old accepted that the group's popularity peaked in 2007 with their single 'Standing In The Way Of Control', but assured Contactmusic that she doesn't care about their subsequent fall from prominence.
She said: "I know 20 year olds don't give a s**t about Gossip now. I actually had a moment where I realised, 'We're not hip anymore', around the hundredth time I heard 'Standing In The Way Of Control' on the TV. Do I care? No, I like it much more now.
"I always enjoyed the freedom being viewed as 'cool' gave me. The access to things I never thought I'd have. I went to some brilliant parties! But I hated that people maybe thought I was a d**k.
"I did start thinking, 'When I was in school, I never wanted to be cool'. But I also never thought it would last. So I went hell for leather and enjoyed it until it was over. There was no strategy."
Ditto recently described the success of 'Standing In The Way Of Control' as a "fluke".
