Little Mix is laying it all out on the line.
Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock grace the latest cover of Hunger Magazine and they do not hold anything back.
In the latest issue out, the girls discuss sexism in the music industry, struggles with mental health issues, and so much more.
Peep pics and quotes below…
On sexism in the music industry:
JT: “There’s definitely a long way to go when it comes to women being able to speak out about misogyny and their experiences within the entertainment industry. Women still don’t get paid the same amount as their male counterparts and still experience sexism or harassment in the workplace. These things obviously exist but we’ve started to feel more like there’s a platform and an understanding, and that when we speak out we’re actually being listened to and heard. There’s power in the solidarity of women standing up for each other and making more noise, especially on social media.”
On mental health struggles:
JT: “We’ve all been through [mental health struggles] in some way, like most people have. It’s only in recent years that everyone’s talking about it more and more, so it’s becoming a bit more normalised. It’s good to see that there’s more open conversation about mental health. As artists, [speaking about mental health] shows our fans that they’re not alone in whatever they’re feeling or whatever they face. And I suppose it encourages people who put us on a pedestal to remember that we are human. Mental health doesn’t know any boundaries when it comes to race or gender or job title. It can impact anyone and everyone.”
On new Little Mix era:
PE: “For one, it’s a fresh start because there’s three of us. We have so many exciting things planned, so much music and some amazing collaborations. There’s a lot to be excited about, for both our fans and for us. Then, obviously, we’re touring next year. We literally cannot wait to be on tour, it’s been postponed twice now, so 2022 could not come soon enough.”
