If you know Little Mix like we do, you'll know that they love spilling the tea. From details about Leigh-Anne Pinnock's wedding, to revelations from their time on the X Factor, these girls aren't afraid to have a gossip.
Which might be why they reportedly take a cheeky dig at Simon Cowell on their latest album, following Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall leaving his record label, Syco.
According to reports, on their track 'Not A Pop Song', released on Friday on new album Confetti, Little Mix address the fact they're no longer signed to his record label, Syco.
"The girls wanted to do something tongue-in-cheek about their past and taking control of their careers with this new album Confetti – their first with new label RCA," an insider told Metro. "It’s not bitchy – and isn’t meant in a bitchy way at all.
"They think Simon will see the funny side of it – as they know he loves attention and will think it’s all playful. It’s about them growing up and becoming women in a way."
Apparently, the lyric reads:
"Don’t do what Simon says
Get the message 'cos it’s read
That’s just life it never plays fair
Said to follow any dream, be a puppet on a string
Works for you but that isn’t me
This ain’t another pop song."
After winning the X Factor in 2011, Little Mix were signed to Syco until 2018, when they moved to RCA, which is still under the Sony Music umbrella.
This comes as Jade Thirlwall opened up about their talent show Little Mix: The Search, touching on the important of aftercare. "Whether they get through or not, our team call them up for a while to see how they’re doing," she told The Mirror.
"We’ll support everyone because we’ve been through a similar experience and probably could have benefited from a bit more support along the way."
