  1. Jesy gave her first ever interview since leaving Little Mix in December 2020. Jesy said she felt a mix of emotions leaving the band, such as being sad but mentally she felt 'free' and that massive weight lifted off her shoulders. She said she felt an enormous amount of pressure being in a girl group. Jesy said the hardest part about being in a girl group was constantly being compared to 3 other girls and never feeling good enough. Jesy revealed the best part of being in Little Mix was everything the girls achieved together, travelling the world and the fanbase. Jesy says her goals are to perform at the Brit Awards solo and win a solo Brit award. Jesy talked about mental health and said to talk to people and be kind to yourself and surround yourself by good people. Now I’m on my own, I can genuinely wear what I want to wear. Before, I was wearing what I thought I should wear, because I was too frightened to wear certain things incase I looked bigger than the others. I’d wear corsets and **** like that to make myself look the size they were. Now, I’m not looking at the screen thinking, “Oh my god, I don’t look as good as them.” I feel free. It’s the weirdest feeling for me. I feel like I’m going to get upset. [Jesy gets tearful.] I didn’t know that I could be this happy. I thought when I was in the group that it was just normal to feel that way. And because I’d felt like that for 10 years, I just thought, "This is life." Since I’ve left, I feel free. I don’t wakeup with anxiety, thinking, "I’ve got to do a music video today, I need to starve myself." Or, "I need to go on an extreme diet so I can look like the other three." That was consuming me. I constantly compared myself to the others. Of course, a lot of that was in my head, but a lot of it was past trauma. Even recently, I was still getting compared to them. It’s horrible when you already don’t like something about yourself to then have thousands of people point it out. Now I feel like me. When I look back [at my time] in theband, I genuinely wasn’t me. I can’t believe how miserable I was. The last music video we did [Sweet Melody] was the breaking point. We’d been in lockdown, and [that had been] the first time I could have a break and be at home around people that I love. It was the happiest I’d ever felt, and I didn’t realise that until I went back to work. I immediately became a different person. I had anxiety. Whenever we had a music video, I put an enormous amount of pressure on myself to try and lose weight. I have a fear of looking back on the camera. If I don’t like what I see, I find it so hard to be in front of the camera and feel amazing and perform. I’d been in lockdown, and I’d put on a bit of weight but I didn’t care.And [then] they said, "You’ve got a music video in a couple of weeks," and I just panicked. I went on this extreme diet, with bloody shakes, and tried to eat as little as possible. On the day of the Sweet Melody video I had a panic attack on set because I didn’t look how I wanted to look and I found it so hard to just be happy and enjoy myself. I looked at the other three and they were having the time of their life. I get so jealous, because I want to feel like that and enjoy it, because music is my passion. To have this dream and not be enjoying it because of what I look like, I knew wasn’t normal. There’s a scene in Sweet Melody I’m not in, because that’s when I had a panic attack and broke down. I was like,"I just want to go home." I was sobbing in the dressing room. Someone really close to me said, "This has got to stop. You can’t keep doing this to yourself. You’re going to end up where you were before." I feel like there have been a few people who don’t understand why I left Little Mix, but am now in the studio making music. A lot of people said,“I thought you came out of the band to focus on your mental health?” I never said when I put out my statement that I was coming out of the band to never be in the public eye or perform again, or do music. I said I was coming out of the band because I genuinely couldn’t deal with the pressure of being in a girl band. For people to think that I would just stop working completely is crazy, because[for] me, working on my mental health is going to the studio, and creating music that I love. That’s what clears my head and makes me happy. It’s good for my mental health. I couldn’t deal with the pressure of being in the girl group. It wasn’t that I couldn’t deal with the pressure of being in the spotlight. I was constantly compared to three other girls and that mentally drove me to a really dark place, and I couldn’t put myself through that any more. I need to do things that make me happy now, and people might think that’s selfish, but sometimes in life you have to put yourself first, you have to love yourself, and do what makes you happy. For me, that was the pinnacle point. I was like, "I need to start taking care of myself now, because this isn’t healthy." It wasn’t nice for the other three to be around someone who didn’t want to be there. So I took a break. I went through a really dark time after the music video. My mum said, "This has got to stop now. I have seen you suffer too much. This has been 10 years of your life." For so long, I worried about others and letting people down. The only person I should have been trying to make happy was myself, and I wasn’t doing that. I needed to do it for my mental health, because I know I would have ended up back where I was five years ago, and that’s scary. Music is my life. It’s so powerful for me. I’m in the studio just having fun. I loved the music I made with Little Mix, but it wasn’t the kind of music I listen to. It just feels so nice to be making music that I love. I don’t know when I’m going to bring it out. I feel really content and happy. It’s the weirdest, best feeling in the world. FELICITY: Can you give me three words that represented you in Little Mix and three that represent you now? JESY: In Little Mix: honest, hardworking, sad. FELICITY: And now? JESY: Honest, content, free. FELICITY: What did you do the day after you left Little Mix? JESY: I was at home with my family, taking everything in on the news. Everyone was talking about it on Lorraine. When I put up my statement, I turned off my comments because I was ****ting myself – I thought, “I’m going to get so much backlash for this.” My sister rang me and said, “I think you should turn on your comments. Everything I’ve seen is really positive.” I turned on my comments and just sat in bed and cried because I was overwhelmed with how lovely everyone was being. It was a shock to me. I couldn’t get over how much people were supporting me and understood. I was on a weird rollercoaster of emotions. I felt sad, because it was 10 years of my life that I was giving up. I felt scared, like, “****, what’s going to happen now?” At the same time, I had glimpses of happiness, of, "I can do what I want now.” I don’t feel trapped. If I wanted to go to the ****ing shop today and eat 10 bars of Dairy Milk, I could, because I don’t have to worry about being on a diet any more. I don’t have to worry about having a music video or doing an interview wearing an outfit that I don’t want to wear because three other girls want to wear it. FELICITY: And then you feel like you’re being difficult? JESY: Yeah. And it’s horrible. I felt like I was coming into an environment, sometimes, where people didn’t want me to be there. Sometimes I wasn’t a positive energy because I was so down. When you feel that way anyway, to be around certain people on my team that didn’t want me there was hard.

  2. Former Little Mix singer is at the centre of a £2million bidding war between several record labels all desperate to get her talent on board. The battle for her signature as a solo artist comes after she left the girl band last year. She has since been in the studio recording her own stuff. A well-placed source tells us: “Jesy’s tracks have got the music industry in a spin and she has big-money offers on the table from a few key record labels all desperate to sign her. “It’s an exciting time for Jesy as she’s in a great place and has loved being creative in the studio. “If all goes to plan she’ll have music out this year and will have some sure-fire hits. The world is her oyster.” Jesy has been working with songwriters Patrick Patrikios and Hanni Ibrahim, who helped pen Little Mix’s 2016 hit single Touch and 2018 album LM5. Jesy announced in December 2020 that she was leaving Little Mix after 9 years in the group.

It's so amazing to see how happy she is now She's come so far from the broken girl who wanted to end her life because of how much she hated being alive and compared to the other girls in Little Mix.

Before anyone hates on her, watch the below interview from 2019 before she left the band.

  8. Jesy Nelson has left RCA records, Despite having a contract as a solo act thx, to the little mix contract, that each girl had a solo album deal as well.. This is to start brand new and a clean slate. And according to insiders she's expected to return to her R&B and Hip hop roots, many speculate she left cos of the top 40 commercial pop sound, that is in the girl groups Music, and that after 9 years of being told what to sing and wear, she's done with that world, and wants to do her own thing.
  9. In a consequence of the social isolation. It caused The relationship for Jesy Nelson and Chris Hughes to come to a sad ending. By not being able to spend time together as a couple. The relationship came to end. He was literally perfect for her.. From being in the Wasabi video, actually breaking down into tears over her BBC documentary when she admitted she downed a bunch of pills to kill herself. The thought of losing her did break his heart. He did win the hearts of Mixers..which is rare when it comes to stanning. This is heartbreaking. He describes meetings her was love at first sight. Bonus video Jesy explaining what she went thru. Which Chris Found inspiring for her to pull thru..
