"Stop Trying To Get Publicity!" Little Mix Respond to GRL Comparisons In Really Awkward Interview

Little Mix GRL

Ever since Little Mix debuted their brand new track 'Shoutout To My Ex' as a world exclusive on The X Factor, it's had a few people drawing comparisons to GRL's track 'Ugly Heart.'

So much so GRL even tweeted a rather not-so-subtle dig towards the girls' track with the hashtag #ShoutOutToUglyHeart. 

A week later and Little Mix have responded to the claims that the group have 'copied' GRL in a rather awkward interview interview with a Belgian radio station. 

You can watch the full interview below, the topic of GRL is brought up from around 2:20:

Jade was first to answer the host explaining: "We're actually friends with Emmalyn from GRL and she loves the song."

"Every song is going to have a similar chord sequence, slightly similar lyrics and melodies – it happens all the time. It doesn't mean that they're not both incredible songs."

Jade also added: "I think maybe because it was a girl band as well, I just think people like to have something negative to say."

Perrie Edwards laughed adding: "I just think, stop trying to hop on the bandwagon."

Whilst good old Jesy was the one to draw a line under the whole thing as she shouted: "Stop trying to get publicity!"
