LITTLE MIX claim record bosses ordered them to flirt with men to get ahead in the music industy.
The accusations from the quartet come after Simon Cowell confirmed the group have switched to RCA Records.
The move comes amid separate allegations the band fell out with his SYCO label over ‘their musical direction’ while making new album LM5.
Now the women have alleged they were advised how to behave to carve out chart success following their victory on The X Factor in 2011.
Jade Thirlwall claimed: ‘We went to a radio event in America, full of VIPs. Someone from the label said, “Go and flirt with all those important men.” I was like, “F*** off. Why have I got to go in and flirt to get my song on the radio?”’
The 25-year-old also alleged the singers were given no input into their own songs because they are women.
‘In the beginning, we were told we shouldn’t be involved in our music videos,’ she said. ‘One producer told us we shouldn’t be writing, we should just be given songs.
‘We realised we, as women, have to work ten times as hard, which is really bloody annoying cos we do write songs.’
As well as sexism, her bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock said she was left to battle racism during their stratospheric rise.
Making the claims in Asos magazine, the 27-year-old, said: ‘During the first couple of years of being in the band, I did feel invisible. I remember crying to my manager regularly. I just couldn’t seem to find my place and didn’t know why.
