Little Mix address Simon Cowell for first time since ‘bitter’ split from Syco
Little Mix and their record label mogul Simon Cowell parted ways earlier this month – but the girls have more they want to say about the fall-out.
In an interview in today’s The Times Magazine , Jesy Nelson said of Simon – presumably before their split: "He’s a funny one. We see him occasionally. We’ll go to his house and have dinner, but he knows to leave us to it."
She added that attributed their global success to themselves, not the X Factor honcho: "We’ve pretty much had to do all of this by ourselves."
Rumours between fans spun up a picture of rows, with some saying the foursome parted ways with Syco to obtain a new manager.
But this has been firmly denied, because contrary to Mixers theories, Cowell parted ways with their management, Modest, not the other way round.
It is thought the X Factor creator decided to back the loyal staff members who have worked for his Syco label for years but has said he will support Little Mix by inviting them to perform on the X Factor final.
A spokesman for Simon said: "Syco Music will no longer work with Modest Management and therefore any artists signed to that management company.
"We do, of course, wish all artists affected by this decision every future success. Consequently, LM5, the forthcoming Little Mix album A&R’d and released on Syco Music, is to be serviced by RCA at the request of Syco and Simon Cowell ."
Elsewhere in the magazine interview, the girls talked about the problems with social media today – and how much pressure young people feel under for unachievable body perfection.
Jesy hit out at the Kardashians in particular for presenting false beauty standards to the public.
"It’s gone too far with the Kardashians, hasn’t it? They all look so perfect and you never see a bad picture of them, but we’re in the industry and we know how much they can change a picture," she said.
"When the Kardashians wake up, they look normal.
"If I was a teenager today with all these images of perfection on Instagram, I would literally have the lowest self-esteem."
Perrie added: "We’ve seen how the real industry works and none of it is real."
