But first, let’s start off with Perrie Edwards‘ #1 rule for being in a girl band: “We all have each others’ backs and we’re always laughing. I think the secret is to just have fun and enjoy it while it lasts!

Leigh-Anne Pinnock says, “I asked the boys from One Direction how to make it in America and they basically said ‘Be yourself and you can’t go wrong. People know when you’re trying to be someone you’re not. Just be true to who you are.’ So that’s what we’ve been doing!”
