Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift’s Twitter fight came to a dramatic end on July 23, but not before Perrie Edwards and her Little Mix bandmates could add their two cents on the matter. Can you guess whose side they’re taking?
Taylor Swift, 25, took the high road on July 23 when she tweeted an apology to Nicki Minaj, 32, admitting she misunderstood the rapper’s point about her Video Music Award nomination rant. And while that’s all well and good, it appears that some are still taking sides in the debate, including Perrie Edwards, 21, and her Little Mix mates! Here’s what they had to say.
Ahead of their set at MTV Crashes Plymouth on July 22, Little Mix caught up with MTV’s Becca Dudley, about the whole Nicki Minaj vs. Taylor Swift Twitter beef. Unlike Katy Perry, 30, and Camilla Belle, 28, the British beauties had nothing but love to show for Taylor, referring to her as “a great role model.” “I feel really sorry for Taylor; I feel like every time she wins something or gets an achievement, someone tries to take it away from her,” said Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 23, with her bandmates Jade Thirlwall, 22, Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson, 24, nodding in agreement. “I love a bit of Swifty,” added Jade. “She’s a great role model. She does what she likes, she’s a great songwriter.”
Don’t let the girls fool you though. While they may have sided with Swifty on this one, they made it clear that Ms. Minaj is still at the top of Little Mix’s dream collaboration list. “I think we love that she’s all about being womanly and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of her, she just rocks it, doesn’t she?” said Jesy. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Click here to see the full interview.
While we continue to not-so-patiently wait for the Little Mix/Nicki Minaj collab to land, fans of the group are still eagerly awaiting for Perrie and fiancé Zayn Malik, 22, to say their “I do’s.” There was earlier evidence the couple had tied the knot in secret in mid-April, and a report claiming that Liam Payne, 21,Harry Styles, 21, Niall Horan, 21, and Louis Tomlinson, 23, attended his bachelor party. However, Zayn’s rep confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that Zayn had not yet married Perrie, although we’re betting they’ll be getting hitched sometime in the very near future now that Zayn is out of the band and taking time to focus on himself. Stay tuned!
