Little Mix to pen political songs, thanks to the #MeToo movement

They are known for their insanely catchy songs, risque stage outfits and iron-clad friendship.

And now Little Mix wanna take their music in a new direction – thanks to the #MeToo movement.

Band member Jade Thirlwall has revealed that the girls are planning on writing more political songs as a result of their frustration at the treatment of women.

In Jade's particular case, she is talking about her mam.

Jade, who performs in the band alongside Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards, told The Guardian that she wants to be more vocal about her political opinions.

Jade spoke about how  #MeToo gave her confidence in her voice as a woman.

She said, ''I remember years ago I did a political tweet and got absolutely annihilated by mostly male MPs who were furious that a pop star had an opinion.''

She continued, “Now I feel more confident to write about things. With Woman’s World, I remember getting in the studio and the whole #MeToo thing was happening and I was really angry.''

She added, “I started talking about my mum and how she was always seen as less equal even though she worked just as hard as the men around her. I thought it was about time we did a female empowerment song that was very specifically about what was going on in the world.”

We love Little Mix's fierce attitude and killer lyrics so we can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves for their future hits.
