Perrie Edwards Actually Tried to Drag Gigi Hadid in Little Mix’s Single, Too
It’s been nearly one month since Little Mix‘s “Shout Out to My Ex” music video first made waves, but it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Not only is it a savage dig at Perrie Edwards‘ ex-fiance, Zayn Malik, but it’s also, in the words of Jade Thirlwall, a “positive breakup anthem that everyone can relate to.” So, natch, it’s playing everywhere! And the latest news takes the aforementioned savagery even further, so you can bet that it’s on replay as we speak.
Initially, when the lyrics were released, people noticed the not-so-subtle way Perrie took aim at her (awful) sex life with her former love, crooning, “I hope she gettin’ better sex // Hope she ain’t fakin’ it like I did, babe…” Oo, burn.
But, apparently, some of the other lyrics were actually changed. Here’s the lyrics as we know ’em:
Yeah yeah, that hurt me, I’ll admit //
Forget that boy, I’m over it”
According to News AU, though, an early version of the song featured the following:
Yeah that s*it hurt I’ll admit //
But f*ck that boy, I’m over it”
So, Perrie originally intended to drag “some model chick” (a.k.a. Gigi Hadid) into the mix as well. What changed her mind? “We had to make it clean,” Perrie explained. “We didn’t want to have the parental advisory sticker on our albums and singles. Even though our fans are our age, 20 or over 18, we still have a lot of young fans. But it does feel good to swear, doesn’t it?”
Wonder what Zayn & Gigi think of all this.
Guess we can now add Zerrie to the list of celebrity couples that penned songs about their split:
