    Perrie Edwards feels "way more confident" without Little Mix

    The 30-year-old pop star has become the latest member of the group to launch a solo career since the band went on hiatus back in 2022 and Perrie insists branching out on her own has given her a major confidence boost because she's having work without having the other singers as a "comfort blanket"


    She told Numero Netherlands magazine: "'I'm just way more confident now I suppose, because I don't have people to hide behind.

    "I was used to having the girls as my comfort blanket, whereas now I have to step up. I have to push myself out of my comfort zone a lot more than I've ever done before."

    Perrie launched her first solo single 'Forget About Us' in April and it will be followed by 'Tears' on June 21 and she's admitted every song on her upcoming album features very personal lyrics including words about her footballer fiance Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and their son Axl.

    She added to the publication: "I took inspiration from everywhere in my life. I took inspiration from my relationship with Alex, my son Axel, past friendships, relationships.

    "How being in love makes you feel, my anxiety, literally everything that I kind of feel I've been through I've put into a song on the album."

    Little Mix announced their hiatus back in 2021 with the trio confirming they would step back after completing their Confetti Tour in April 2022.

    Since then, Leigh-Anne Pinnock has been releasing solo music while Jade Thirlwall recently shared pictures from the studio suggesting she's hard at work on her own material.

    However, the bandmembers have insisted Little Mix is not over for good and they plan to get back together in the future.

    In a statement announcing the hiatus, they explained: "It's been 10 amazing years, a wonderful non-stop adventure, and we feel the time is right to take a break so we can recharge and work on some other projects ...

    "We are not splitting up - Little Mix are here to stay. We have plans for more music, tours and performances in the future. We've made so many incredible memories with you all, and we can't wait to make so many more."
