Fine, then! Perrie is having none of our typical BREAK-UP behaviour

No matter how much we might want to break the mould, when it comes to break-ups, we generally do the same thing over and over again.

After kissing goodbye to the latest relationship, many of us crawl beneath a duvet, eat our weight in chocolate and only re-emerge if someone mentions the word gin.

And by the sounds of things, Perrie Edwards of Little Mix fame is keen for us to break the cycle.

Commenting on the motivation behind Shout Out To My Ex, she explained that the Little Mix ladies wanted their break-up song to be empowering rather than maudlin.

"When people go through breakups, you automatically want to hear really sad songs," Perrie told E! News.

"You want to listen to Un-Break My Heart and have a little cry, get a tub of ice cream out. "We just thought, 'You know what? Women need to feel empowered," she continued.

"Everybody needs to feel empowered after a breakup and we feel like this song can relate to everyone because everybody’s had an ex."

"We have each other luckily, so we experience everything together and we’ve always got each other’s backs," she said.

In fairness, we could easily listen to Shout Out To My Ex while devouring a tub of Haagen Dazs, so technically everyone's a winner.
