Perrie Edwards’ mum is NOT happy but Zayn Malik’s pretty thankful!

Perrie Edwards’ mum has been expressing her disgust with Brit Awards’ bosses online this week and it’s fair to say that she’s not a happy bunny.

Little Mix couldn’t be at the ceremony, as the band are currently in America, supporting Demi Lovato on her Neon Lights North American tour, but even if they had been in the UK, they wouldn’t have picked up a trophy as they weren’t nominated in any categories.

The ladies have become one of the biggest selling UK acts over the past year but this wasn’t reflected in the 2014 nominations and the X Factor stars weren’t in with a chance of picking up a gong for Best Single, Best Group, Best Album or even Best Video on Wednesday.

One fan tweeted about the supposed travesty and posted:

“Really disappointed that little mix didn’t get nominated! 🙁 xxxx.”

Deborah Edwards replied:

“I know disgusting xx.”

She added:

“Who else thinks its disgusting that Little mix are not at the Brit’s ??”

“would love to see them sing there next year x”

Meanwhile, Perrie’s fiancé Zayn Malik did have cause to celebrate this week, as One Direction picked up two Brit Awards on Wednesday.

The band were nominated in four categories and while they lost out on Best Single and Best Group, the hunks did lift trophies for Global Success and Best Video.

Zayn didn’t join his bandmates at the Sony Music after party and he headed home for a few drinks with Louis Tomlinson instead. However, despite not being in the mode for a public celebration, he did thank fans on Twitter later in the evening and tweeted:

zayn malik

“:) party !! Woo thank you to everyone that’s ever been a part of 1D 🙂 we owe this night to you !! Xx.”

Malik joined Little Mix in LA for a while last week but now he’s back in the UK he will be continuing work on the new One Direction album, due out later this year.

Harry Styles may not be around to help though, as he was spotted at an LA airport yesterday.

    Why should they have been nominated, all their success and fame has come off the back of Zayn Malik and One Direction. They should be ashamed of themselves. I have lost all respect for them but I do feel bad for the other 3 as you can tell they’re fed up of all the Zayn engagement mentions Perrie keeps throwing out.

  2. Amanda on February 21, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    They’re successful but only moderately and that too only in the uk. Even there, Their sales are nothing compared to 1D. Only their debut singles went to #1. This year they didn’t have any #1 singles In the uk. So called journalists need to stop over estimating them. The Brits are always about the biggest selling pop acts and obviously Little Mix isn’t one of them.

    I mean i LOVE Little Mix dont get me wrong, but I havent heard a Little Mix song on the radio since “Wings” came out and 1D’s songs have been popping out like crazy so like I said if Little Mix had a new song, then maybe they would have been there.

    Perfectly said Amanda. Agree 100%. I never understood why the media seems to be so pro Little Mix. They don’t seem to be making waves like 1D. I have yet to hear anything on the radio from them besides TWO songs. They’re not owed anything just because they were on the X Factor or because one is engaged to a very, very popular boy. And just because they’re “super busy”, obviously doesn’t mean that they’re in high demand.

    Little Mix aren’t as successful as the media is making them out to be. They’ve tried to crack America twice in a year or so and have only managed to gain the #1 spot on iTunes for an hour and spent the rest of the time moving down the charts. The Brits are for successful pop acts. I only heard Wings on the radio after they won the X Factor and Little Me during their attempt to crack America which did not go well for them. They were not at the Brits for a reason. 1D are successful and Little Mix aren’t. Their music is okay but every song sounds the same. Maybe if they mixed it up a bit people would be more interested in their music and if they didn’t leach off of 1D for their fame I might actually be a little bit more interested in them.

  6. Amanda on February 21, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    Thank you Annabelle. Don’t get me wrong i think they’re very talented. But the way the media talks about them like they’re on par with 1D is absolute rubbish. They sold 40,000 albums in the first week in the US and 1D sold more than 500,000 in their first week with midnight memories. And with Little Mix most of those sales are because of Zayn, sadly. They’re super busy because they’re working hard to get successful but they’re definitely not there yet. Nothing wrong with that but articles like this are totally exaggerated.

    Whether this relationship between Zayn and Perrie is real or not, you can’t deny that their PR team is milking it for all it’s worth (this article alone is evidence of that) and it’s all for Perrie’s/Little Mix’s benefit. I really enjoy Little Mix’s music but to say that they are one britain’s most successful pop acts is highly inaccurate and success they do have is mostly thanks to their link with 1D.

    I think your being too harsh on little mix. I mean yes they are getting some dames from Perrie Edwards being engaged to zayn malik but they have also been quite successful. I have heard quite a few of their song on the radio (wings, move, little me) and have done well in the American charts, better than any other girl band and believe they will dominate America fully

  9. Abby on February 22, 2014 at 2:36 am

    i think that little mix are amazingly talented singers, and that they should have won one thing at the brit’s (i mean come on, its not the teen choice awards) they should not be compared to 1D, i love them and all, don’t get me wrong, but i think that they are getting some of their fans from the fact that perrie is dating zayn… and i have not heard one song on the radio from them!! Still love them though. xx

    Dear Little Mix, u guys became more famous is because of One Direction. Please don’t forget that. And Dear Perrie, my Zayn bro, really really loves you much, so I’d like to tell you something if you don’t mind; ” Please don’t break his hear”. Best of luck to Y’all

    I think little mix are incredibly talented young ladies but they are not that successful and mixers keep saying they don’t need zayn Lol their album was #1 on iTunes for like 3 hours but then it just kept dropping and it was at #60 until zayn went to the states and got mobbed at the neon lights tour then it rose up to #45 And you can’t tell me that wasn’t completely planned I mean how do liam, niall and harry manage to go to concerts without getting mobbed but zayn was paraded right through the crowd?

  13. Defleppard on February 22, 2014 at 7:57 am

    Perrie’s whole family is fame hungry and desperate for attention especially the brother and it’s disgusting how they use zayn but I can tell that the boy obviously loves them just wish he would sit them down and have a talk with them

  14. abbass on February 22, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    I can say lol to Pierre Edwards she is just rubbish

  15. abbass on February 22, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    And totally agree with defleppard

  16. Shannon on February 22, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    They are incredibly talented and despite what all of you are saying, not everything has to do with One direction. Perrie never brings up Zayn, she is asked questions about the two of them because everyone wants to know things but they know Zayn hates to answer questions in general so they bombard her with questions. Little Mix are on the rise and they deserve the success they are continuing to get. I live in the Caribbean and I hear there songs on the radio. And attacking Perrie’s family is actually very sad of you. How would you feel if someone were attacking your family like that?? I love the directioners passion, but they need to calm down and stop death threatening and being rude and crude about the people that surround the boys.

    I’m sure I must’ve misunderstood you, ‘Sassy’, but Little Mix won the X Factor. Where I live, they are quite famous. They are just gaining more fame by having Perrie and Zayn in a relationship.
