Perrie Edwards acts as ‘agony aunt’ to heartbroken fans
Perrie Edwards has become an "agony aunt" to her fans who are dealing with heartbreak.
The Little Mix singer suffered her own romantic angst when her fiancé Zayn Malik called time on their two-year engagement in 2015 by text message, but now she has been able to move on from the failed relationship.
Perrie and her bandmates scored a UK number one with their single ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ and since the track was released the blonde beauty has been told by numerous women who have told her that the song shook them from their own dating woes.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the 23-year-old star said: "I’m like an agony aunt. I feel amazing, I can’t get enough of it. So many people approach me at nightclubs saying, ‘You changed my life, I’ve never felt better.’ Or, ‘I got dumped two weeks ago and your song makes me feel great.’ Guys too have told me they put the song on repeat to help them."
And it isn’t just Perrie who has been comforting the ‘Mixers’, as her bandmate Jesy Nelson has also had many fans share "their problems" since the release of their new album ‘Glory Days’.
Jesy, 25, said: "’Glory Days’ is a love and heartbreak album. Now women, older women too, randomly come up to tell me their problems. It makes you feel good."
The band – also comprised of Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall – believe their LP is very "relatable", as it includes songs about both sides of a relationship.
Perrie – who is now reportedly dating Arsenal soccer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – said: "I suppose that’s what makes us so relatable. Songs like ‘FU’ – everyone’s had an ‘FU’ moment. Everybody’s had a ‘Nothing Else Matters’ moment too."
Leigh-Anne added: "That’s why everyone has taken to the album. We say what we want, even if it gets us into trouble."
