'We Have Big Ambitions': Jesy Nelson Compares Little Mix Fame To Justin Bieber

The girl group are keen to take on the US after signing a record deal

Little Mix have only just inked a deal with a US record label, but the girl group are already comparing themselves to the likes of Justin Bieber, revealing they have a main fanbase of “screaming” teenage girls.

The 'Wings' hitmakers rose to fame in 2011 when they became the first group to win The X Factor, and after a string of successful singles and a smash hit debut album, Little Mix are already gearing up to conquer the US.

Speaking out their legions of fans, member Jesy Nelson says they don't have many male fans and are similar to teen sensation Justin Bieber in that sense.

“It's mostly teenage girls at our shows so I do feel like I'm Justin Bieber. It's really strange,” Jesy told the Daily Star.

“We were hoping it might happen, but realistically girl bands never really have that kind of following - you know, people banging on car windows.”

Perrie Edwards chimed in: “There are girls everywhere and the best thing is they know all the words, all the raps. We get so emotional hearing them on stage we just cry.”

Lead singer Perrie says the girls will be pulling out all the stops to break into the US market. “We will be going there and working our bums off,” she admitted.

“We want to be so successful so we'll be doing everything we can to break there. We want to be huge.”

Jade Thirwall added: “'Wings' was written with the US in mind. We have an album that will travel well. We have big ambitions.”

The four-piece are currently in the midst of their first UK headline tour, which has so far received rave reviews.
