Little Mix singer understands feelings of envy

Perrie Edwards can understand why One Direction fans might be jealous of her.

The Little Mix singer got engaged to 1D heartthrob Zayn Malik, 20, in August 2013, breaking the hearts of many Directioners in the process.

But Perrie admits that she knows what they’re going through as she used to feel the same way about her famous crushes.

When I was younger, and I found out [US singer] Jesse McCartney had a girlfriend, I was heartbroken,’ says Perrie, 20.

I was like: “Noooo!” Then Dougie [Poynter] from McFly started seeing Frankie Sandford from The Saturdays and I was gutted.

So I can relate, you’re a young girl with a crush on someone. You’re like: “Damn it!”‘

Fortunately Perrie’s had a good response from most of 1D’s fanbase, as well as her ever-loyal Mixers.

I’ve been really lucky, One Direction fans have been really supportive,’ the blonde singer says.

I had so much positive feedback. Our Little Mix fans are incredible – they’ll support us no matter what.’
