Think Perrie Edwards was bothered about THAT Zayn Malik Instagram post? Think again...
If Perrie Edwards was hurt by ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik snuggling up to a mystery blonde and sharing it with the world on Instagram, she certainly isn’t showing it.
After Zayn posted the snap that’s sent the internet into meltdown at the weekend, Perrie took to the photo-sharing site herself to post the chirpiest of messages.
The Little Mix star captioned a (rather gorgeous) make-up free selfie: ‘Rise and shine!’
So she’s clearly not wallowing in bed then!
It’s just the latest way in which Perrie has risen above all the drama following the couple’s shock split in August – and here’s six more ways in which she’s winning the post-break-up war…
1. She’s ‘having an absolute blast’ being single
Think Perrie’s sitting at home crying into her hot cocoa? Think again.
The blonde beauty told 3am how she’s enjoying nights out with her Little Mix bandmates – and has even got chatting to a few guys.
‘I’m having an absolute blast,’ she said. ‘We have a bit of banter with guys in nightclubs… I love it.
‘I love going out. I’m feeling brilliant and I’m in a good place – and I’ve got new hair.’
She added: ‘Jade can be a bad influence, but she always looks after me and makes sure I don’t get too drunk.
‘The other night she was filling my glass with water.’
2. She’s indulging in some proper girl time
When she’s not out chatting to boys in clubs, Perrie’s been indulging in some serious girl time – including a super-fun pyjama party. Who needs boys?
3. She made sure she got the dogs
Zayn may have walked out on Perrie, but there’s no way she was letting him take their beloved dogs.
Pez confirmed she’s got custody of the former pair’s pet pooches, telling The Mirror: ‘Mum’s got the dogs at the moment. As soon as we go on tour I’ll take them with me.’
She’s since been flaunting her treasured four-legged friends all over Instagram. And, given how cute they are, Zayn will DEFINITELY be missing them – if not Perrie.
4. She’s been hanging out with the 1D boys
Despite the official ‘we wish him all the best’ line being wheeled out by One Direction after Zayn’s shock exit from the band, rumours persist that all is not well between the two parties – and Perrie could be about to use that to her advantage after it was revealed Liam Payne is keen to work with Little Mix.
The girls even supported 1D last week at the Apple Music Festival in London, with Jade revealing: ‘We always have a laugh with them. We have the same banter. Niall is so cute and adorable, and so is Harry.’
5. She’s been back to Disneyland
Who can forget the super-adorable pictures from the time Perrie and Zayn went to Disneyland Paris together? Not us – they looked just like love’s young dream.
But Perrie isn’t about to let the break-up ruin the happiest place on earth for her. No way.
The star recently returned to the theme park with her cousin, Ellie Hemmings – and even said she’d like to go there with a boy.
‘I’d love to do a double date at Disneyland. That would be brilliant,’ she said.
6. She eased the pain by deleting all traces of him from her life
Well, from her Instagram account, at least. The modern-day equivalent of burning all photos of your ex was surely a cathartic process for our Pez.
7. She’s channelled the pain of the break-up into her music
Or so it seems. Is it just a coincidence that track Hair on Little Mix’s new album contains the line ‘He was just a d*** and I knew it’? We think not.
