Jade Thirlwall Shuts Down Sexist Critics In Little Mix Acceptance Speech At Global Awards
When it comes to girl power, Little Mix have pretty much got it covered and Jade Thirlwall made sure everyone remembered that at the Global Awards on Thursday evening.
The 25-year-old spoke to us on a spiritual level when she shut down sexist haters who criticise the band, telling them they should dress modestly and clean up their lyrics.
Jade shrugged and told the audience that they were simply 'not arsed' about the criticism, because, well why the heck should someone tell them how to dress?
It was a hugely successful night for the girl group, who walked took away three awards for Best Song for Power ft Stormzy, Best Group and Best British Artist or Group. Amazing work.
Jade took to the stage alongside her bandmates, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and she had a very special message for anyone who doubted them..
She said: "We just want to say that as a girl band, and as women, we do face a lot of scrutiny all the time. Whether it's for the way we look, how much thigh we get out, how we dance, what we sing about.
"And we just wanna say that although one day we hope that does stop, right now, we're really not arsed what people think. We are women, we will dress how we want to dress. If we want to do a twerk, we'll do a twerk.
"We will always encourage our fans, especially our female fans, to be themselves and do what they wanna do with our music."
Fans couldn't get enough of Jade's powerful message either...
I just watched the video of Jade's speech and let me tell ya that these four women keep pushing me to be the best me and the most confident with myself, so girls @LittleMix, you're doing an amazing job in the world. :heartbeat: #TheGlobalAwards
