Jade Thirlwall: "Little Mix will literally never die"
"We might go off and do our own bits and bobs, but I think Little Mix will literally never die."
Finally, one of the Little Mix ladies has broken their silence: Jade Thirlwall has opened up about the band's plans for solo careers following Jesy Nelson's departure earlier this week.
The singer spoke briefly about the news while she was on Australia's Ash London Live, explaining that the girls plan on "doing their own thing", but insisted that they'll be back together again.
"You know, eventually in the future we might go off and do our own bits and bobs, but I think Little Mix will literally never die," she said. "We’ve always said that. We’re like, we always need Little Mix."
So, it's not all bad news, and sounds to us like the girls just want a little space to work on their own careers. Jade told the radio station she "definitely wants to travel more."
"I’ve worked solidly for nine whole years now without hardly any break, I’m sort of used to that now and not stopping," she said.
Lockdown was difficult for Jade she explains: "When I had to stop and take a little break, I was so freaked out, I didn’t know what to do with myself with all that time off."
"With Little Mix, whenever we achieve something, we go right this is next. It just keeps us going and going. Obviously, we enjoy each other’s company so it makes the work a lot easier."
Jade's interview comes following Jesy's statement that she would not be returning to the band anytime soon due to private medical reasons.
It read: "Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time."
