You can read (click here) article and interview with Jesy for VICE!
The Little Mix singer reflects on almost a decade in the spotlight, and the depression and anxiety that stemmed from obsessively reading comments people had written about her online.
There’s a rash on Jesy Nelson’s cleavage and she wants me to look at it. “It comes up every time I talk about all this stuff,” she says, smiling. The Little Mix singer is mid-way through telling me about her new BBC documentary, which aired last night, but has stopped to point at her chest. She’s clearly a little nervous, and not just because this is the first interview the 28-year-old can remember doing without her bandmates by her side.READ MORE & INFO: vice.com
I added two HQ photos taken by CHRIS BETHELL to gallery:
After eight years as a quarter of the biggest British girl band since the Spice Girls, Perrie Edwards graces the second cover of Notion 84 and talks mixed emotions, freckles and finding happiness with her Little Mix sisters.
Gracing the second cover of our Summer 2019 issue, Notion 84, we sit down with Perrie Edwards – one quarter of global girlband phenomenon Little Mix. In her first ever solo cover we chat to the pop star to discover that she doesn’t care anymore. Well, not strictly; she cares about music, and success, and the legions of fans who swarm to her dressing room to chant Little Mix hits through foggy windows. What she’s over is the bullshit: covert paparazzi trying to snap a nip slip on her beach holiday; getting lacerated for wearing hot pants on television; breakfast show hosts crapping out shit takes for retweets. “When you’re a kid everything makes you worried, you think everything’s the end of the world,” she explains. “And then you get older and start to care a lot less.” Read the full interview in Notion 84, available to purchase!
Little Mix are on the new cover of ASOS Magazine. You can read full interview below (with “more” link)
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.
