Wywiad z Glamour, po angielsku
GLAMOUR: You’re just about to release your first original single, Wings. How do you feel about the reaction it’s had so far? You’ve had over 4million hits on YouTube already…
Jesy: “We were really, really excited. We’ve had it for a while now, so we’re excited to release it and let everyone hear it. And now it’s already out there, all the feedback has been really positive, so we’re really looking forward to it being released.”
Jade: “Yes, it’s been amazing. We were a bit nervous at first because we wrote it with Iain James and TMS, and yeah, we’ve had it for so long, we were a bit anxious.”
Leigh-Anne: “It’s weird, because we didn’t really know what to expect, coming from the show. Obviously, we had to find our sound, but yeah, it’s had such a positive reaction. And hopefully, it will go to No.1.”
GLAMOUR: Do you feel under pressure to score a No.1 hit with it?
Jesy: “Not really, to be honest. I mean, we’re hoping that it does well, but I don’t feel there’s any pressure.”
Leigh-Anne: “I don’t know, because there’s been a big build up and we’re the first girl band to win [The X Factor]. If it does, it does. We’re just really excited.”
GLAMOUR: What’s the one message that you want your fans to take away from the song?
Jesy: “Well, the song is literally about not taking any rubbish from anyone, and not letting people put you down. So I hope that, if the fans are having a crappy day, that they listen to our song and it makes them feel better, and makes them feel happy.”
Leigh-Anne: “It’s such an uplifting song. It’s kind of like Your Mamma Knows Best, sort of thing. And like, just don’t let any haters bring you down. If they do, tell them to sod off, because you are who you are and you just have to embrace that.”
GLAMOUR: What was it like filming the video for it? Were there any funny on-set antics?
Jesy: “It was so fun. It was our first one: obviously, we didn’t really have one for Cannonball, it was just loads of scenes from what had happened on X Factor. So this is our first proper video. It was amazing, but we were proper tired. I think we started at 4am in the morning, and we didn’t finish until 2am the next day. And the routine that’s in the video, we kept having to keep shooting it and doing it again.”
Jade: “It was just such a long day. It was so hardcore. We were just doing the dance routine over and over and over again all day, but I think we were just running off adrenaline. Everyone was just buzzing. Nothing really went wrong at all. It was a really fun experience.”
GLAMOUR: Can you reveal anything to us about the next single you’re about to unveil?
Jesy: “I can tell you that the next single that we’re going to bring out is completely different, and I think people will see a completely different side to Little Mix that they haven’t seen before.”
Leigh-Anne: “We are so excited about the second single. It’s not definitely going to be one that we want, because there’s a decision between two at the minute, and we really, really want one. It is a bit different, it’s like the darker side to Little Mix. Slightly slower as well. So, it’s just a chance for us to show that we can really be serious and really show off the vocals as well. This one’s really about the vocals.”
GLAMOUR: Tell us a bit more about your debut album. What stage are you at with it?
Jesy: “We are so happy with the album. It’s nearly finished now. We’re literally filling in the gaps we don’t have. There is something for everyone in there, because we all like different styles of music, then we’ve put our own flavour on it so it’s still got that Little Mix style, so it’s just fun.”
Leigh-Anne: “We think it’s going to come out around autumn time. We’ve kept the same pop, RnB route but we’ve added lots of influences. So it’s kind of like a mix of everything. There’s something for everyone to enjoy.”
GLAMOUR: Leigh-Anne, do the rest of the girls really call you the Fresh Princess Of Bel-Air?
Leigh-Anne: “It’s because I’m like the old-school one. I love old-school clothes. Things from the 90s, baggy jeans, the crop tops; just really old-school, colourful things. The Fresh Prince era is sort of my thing. I love the Fresh Prince look, so I think that’s where the Fresh Princess thing came from. It’s quite a cool name, though!”
GLAMOUR: Jade told one reporter that she was jealous of your (Jesy’s) figure - so much so that she was thinking of getting a boob job to emulate your curves. What was your reaction to that?
Jesy: “Well, I can confirm that Jade does not want a boob job yet. Jade’s got a beautiful figure. We’re all different shapes and sizes, and Jade, when she’s older, maybe, but she’s too young for a boob job! I would love to have Jade’s figure. She can eat what she wants and she never puts on weight. She’s so lucky. I think she’s got a stunning figure - she doesn’t need a boob job. She said she’s going to wait a few more years yet, and see if they get any bigger, then if they do, she won’t have to get one.”
GLAMOUR: You guys are all about positive self-image and promoting that. Were you in any way worried about the sort of message you, Jade, would be sending out to younger fans by talking about having a boob job?
Jade: “No. Well, what I said was, obviously, I’m a very flat-chested person. I’m happy at the minute, because there’s loads of beautiful women that have got a flat chest on them. But maybe in a few years to come I might do if I still had a complex about it. But I’ve still got time to grow yet. My mum said when you have a baby, right, that your boobs grow then. So you never know.”
GLAMOUR: What advice would you give to our readers on dealing with their own body issues?
Jesy: “I think you just have to love yourself, to be honest, because nobody’s perfect. And people that are… Then they’ve had work, ha ha ha. I literally think you just have to love yourself. If you’re really genuinely not happy with your weight, just be a bit more healthy, do some exercise and make yourself feel better about your body. But I think everyone, before they do that, they need to learn to love themselves.”
Jade: ”I think everyone’s got that little something that they’re not happy about. I don’t know any girl that is completely happy with themselves. Everyone is their own worst critic. You’ve just got to learn to embrace it, really, because that’s the way you were made. Everyone’s different, and I might not be so happy about not having boobs, but there’s other things I might like about myself. You’ve just got to think positively all the time.”
Tłumaczenie może zrobię wkrótce. Raczej po październiku, i zmieniłam ustawienia. Anonimki tak mnie denerwują, że nie mogą już dodawać komentarzy. Może to nie wyleczy problemu jaie macie do mnie, ale mi to odpowiada.
