Pay us some respect
Little Mix find the gender pay gap “frustrating” – especially as the UK is run by women. Jade Thirlwall says: “I find it weird that we’ve got a Queen and a female Prime Minister, but there’s still not equal pay. It’s baffling. “It’s important for people in the industry to speak up about it because that will help go towards making a change.” The group have often been criticised for their skimpy stage outfits – including at June’s One Love Manchester concert – but Perrie Edwards, 24, calls it double standards. “If a man was on the front page in their boxers everyone would be buzzing off their tits,” she says. “But when a woman’s on the front page in her underwear it’s the worst thing in the world. People need to get over it – it’s 2017.” Leigh Anne Pinnock, 25, adds: “We’re very, very bored of it. We don’t listen to it. We’re always going to wear what we want. We don’t care what anyone else has got to say about it. We’re not doing anything to offend anyone – we’re just literally wearing what we want to wear. Shouldn’t everyone just be who they want to be?” The group released their new line of sports clothes with USA Pro this week.
