Jesy Nelson is a unique artist who rose to prominence with the pop group Little Mix over a decade ago.
The all-girl band sold countless records and gained a devoted global following.
Jesy, who rose to fame on Simon Cowell’s “The X Factor” with her bandmates, took a break from the group two years ago to focus on her mental health.
Unfortunately, this decision sparked an outpouring of hatred online and a tumultuous fallout with the other three members.
After nearly a decade, the 31-year-old sensation is ready to move on with her newest solo single, “Bad Thing.”
The incident has kept Jesy estranged from her former bandmates over the years; however, she opens up about it for the first time and hopes to return on her terms.
Her most recent song is a ballad with haunting melodies and melancholy lyrics, a departure from her previous bubble-gum pop works. It aims to address pressing issues such as mental illness and relationship abuse.
Jesy hasn’t spoken to her former bandmates in over two years, revealing much about their breakup.
Speaking to The Sun, Jesy said:
“Being in a girl band, you are a machine going all the time. You don’t have a minute to breathe and take time out if you just need space. That was something I struggled with.”
Despite her fantastic times and experiences in Little Mix, her mental health became a priority near the end of her tenure, so she needed to take a step back and look after herself. After all, we only have one life to live. It was something to take note of.
Jesy also stated that she supports her three former bandmates, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock because they are “all crazy talented.”
Meanwhile, Leah-Anne Pinnock announced an exciting new venture on Monday: her debut memoir “Believe.”
She took to Instagram to share a video of herself cradling the book, which is due out later this year.
Leigh-Anne told her fans that her upcoming book would detail some of the pivotal moments in her life before embarking on an independent musical journey.
She looked radiant in the video, wearing a grey robe and holding the soon-to-be-published work.
“I feel like I’ve been in a whirlwind. I’ve had some life-changing moments that up until now, I’ve never really had the chance to process.”
“So with this in mind and before I embark on this new journey, I want to respect my past; my life, my heritage, family, identity and most importantly, embracing & believing in my own power.”
