Perrie Edwards Says She Has Grown 'Thick Skin' Against Haters Since She Joined Little Mix
Perrie Edwards has spoken out about dealing with the pressures of being famous. She's admitted to growing a 'thick skin' to deal with all the scrutiny.
"I think you have to learn to have a thick skin. I think it comes with being in a girl band and being an artist. People want to know what you're doing and what you're up to, which is fine with us. We have each other luckily, so we experience everything together and we've always got each other's backs," she told E! News.
She also spoke out about being thought of as a role model and that Little Mix think it's unfair for men and women to be treated differently if they have young fans.
She said: "I think being named role models kind of happened just naturally, we never really asked for it. Which is lovely, I love the fact that girls look up to us and we empower people and inspire them. But obviously, we’re young girls and we’re going to do silly things sometimes that can kind of put pressure on us, but we’re just being ourselves."
"And if that means that we’re being role models by just being ourselves, then that’s incredible. It’s a massive compliment. We don’t think it’s fair that women get scrutinized more than men."
"Everything is harder for a woman in every kind of aspect and that’s why we try to empower women with our music, our image and everything we stand for."
