MIXING IT UP
I first met Little Mix during an interview at Capital FM. I remember the girls reading a nasty headline about Jesy while a song was playing and innocently asking me why this was happening. I did my best to support them and probably told them something useless such as: “That’s just what happens to famous people; it’s not personal, ignore it.” At that moment, I witnessed an unbreakable sisterhood form. While I should never have dismissed something so awful as “normal”, I’m so proud to see Jade, Jesy, Perrie and Leigh- Ann harnessing the power of that pain.
Their latest album, LM5, fights for equality, feminism and selflove harder than ever. It’s defiant, life- affirming and anthemic, with break- up bops and pop ballad bangers. The Cure finds strength after struggle, Told You So is your best friends serving you tea after a heartbreak and Joan of Arc’s battle cry “I don’t need a man, if I’m loving you it’s cos I can” is a serious mood. LM5 is life.
