Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock will appear on The Jonathan Ross Show this weekend for a performance and interview, days after it was revealed Jesy Nelson is taking an 'extended break' from the 'Confetti' band.
Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have given their first interview since it was announced in a statement that Jesy Nelson would be taking an ‘extended break’ from the ‘Confetti’ band, who recently wrapped up Little Mix: The Search.
In the chat, they touched on how ‘hard’ it is being a part of the hugely successful girlband and how they will celebrate their upcoming 10-year anniversary!
Perrie, who is in a relationship with Liverpool FC player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, said: “I don’t think we expected it to be this hard. When you’re young and you think of being a popstar, you think, ‘Oh I want everyone to love me and ask for my autograph…’ then you get thrown into it and you’re like, ‘Holy s*** balls it’s a lot’.
“We don’t rest, we don’t sleep. But we love success so we’re willing to work for it and it’s been an amazing 10 years!”
“People don’t understand the pressure.
“People sometimes see popstars and think, ‘Oh it is glam and glitz’, but really it’s hard.”
She said: “We’ve got each other, that’s the beauty of being in a band. We just stay grounded with our friends and family.
“When we get time off we go straight home and see the family.
“Our mams would be the first to tell us off if we were getting a bit big headed.”
