Little Mix Cover Up with Union Flag for 'Cosmo on Campus'

Little Mix hold onto a giant Union flag over them on the Spring 2014 cover of Cosmo on Campus.

The girls – Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Perrie Edwards – opened up about missing out on the higher education rituals that come with the territory. Check it:

Jesy on skipping higher education: “I was rubbish at school. I was never destined to have anything to do with education – it just wasn’t on my radar. If I wasn’t in Little Mix, I’d probably still be a barmaid, trying to work out what to do with my life… My best friend started uni before I did X Factor, but I wasn’t too jealous, although I do feel envious of her lie-ins, because we don’t get any sleep, ever!”

Perrie on shopping in her pajamas: “I go to the shops in my PJs all the time! Especially when I’m with my best friend Catherine and we’re in Newcastle. If it’s really late – like four in the morning – we’ll have cravings for crisps and snacks, so we’ll drive to the 24-hour Tesco. Nobody’s ever at Tesco at that time; it’s nice and empty.”

Leigh-Anne on her cleanliness: “The idea of house-sharing is probably my worst nightmare. I hate cleaning up after other people! When the girls come for lunch or rehearsals at mine, I make them eat on plastic plates so I don’t have to wash up! I’d be like the mum of the house.”

Jade on having that time away from the band: “We’re together 24/7, but luckily we don’t get sick of each other. When you’re living so close to other people, honesty is key: being forward and open. If you’ve got a problem, you say it and you sort it out. Alone time is important too. We always have separate hotel rooms – so, if you do want to have some downtime, you can.”
