Did you know that Little Mix actually wrote the song “Pretty Girls,” which was recorded by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea? Well, now they are explaining why they gave up the track.
“We’ve been away a while because we wrote an album, sat with the record label and we thought, ‘Nope, it’s not good enough’,” group member Jesy Nelson in an interview with The Sun. “We recorded a whole album but we’re perfectionists and knew we could do better. So we scrapped it and started again.”
“We wrote it with Maegan Cottone, who we’ve written a lot of this album with,” Jade Thirlwall added. “We loved the song but it wasn’t really for us so we put it out there and, lo and behold, Britney wanted it.”
DO YOU THINK that Little Mix should have recorded “Pretty Girls?”
“Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! At this age, I’m just glad to look younger than my cat,” Chris wrote on his official account.
Earlier in the month, Chris announced the dates for his upcoming book tour for “The Land of Stories”: “ANNOUNCING the #TLOS4tour dates! http://thelandofstories.com/ How excited am I? It can only be expressed in dance…” he wrote.
Here’s what the 28-year-old Unfriended actor had to share:
On cyber bullying: “People feel more brave all of a sudden behind a keyboard because they’re anonymous and they don’t have to deal with the consequences face to face. It’s important to stop that because obviously it does no good, and if this movie gets people to stop or at least be aware it’s great.”
On growing up in a big family: “Always as a kid, there was 8 of us so it was always so hard to get my parents’ attention, we’d always have to do crazy things to get our parents’ attention because they couldn’t divide it evenly. I think that seeking their attention all the time and doing crazy things as a kid in a weird way lead to acting [laughs].”
On his sister Nicola: “It’s very important to have someone who roots for you and truly wants you to do well for all the right reasons. She’s so supportive of me, I’m so supportive of her and it’s great to have that support system. We have each other’s back.”
The 21-year-old singer opened up to the glossy about her new EP That’s My Right There, dating, and more. Check it:
On her EP: “I’m very involved. I’m starting to get more into writing, but I always sit with writers to discuss concepts and how I want the track to go. I’m still learning to become confident in songwriting.”
On being single: “I’m taking time to focus on me and if the right person comes along, then we’ll see. I just want to focus on music and growing right now.”
