Little Mix's Perrie Edwards slams ex Zayn Malik while promoting new single, Hair
Perrie Edwards has called ex-fiance Zayn Malik a "bell-end" - hinting that the break-up inspired Little Mix's single, Hair.
Interviewing the rest of her band mates, Leigh-Anne Pinnock asked: "So obviously with Hair, can you tell us the story behind it, because it's got a naughty word in it hasn't it?"
The lyrics to the song, released on August 28, include: "Cause he was just a dick and I knew it / Got me going mad sitting in this chair / Like I don't care / Gotta get him out my hair."
Jade Thirlwall answered: "Well you know, sometimes when you break up with someone they are that word, so it's all right to say in a song."
Echoing the song's lyrics, Edwards added: "He was just a bell-end and I knew it."
Edwards, 22, recently split from former One Direction singer Malik, 22, with representatives confirming on August 4 that the couple had called off their engagement.
In the interview with UTV's music show Total Access, Edwards was also disappointed to find out that actor Tom Hardy was married.
Asked which celebrity she would take to prom, she named the Legend star, asking her Little Mix band mates: "We all love a bit of Tom Hardy, don't we girls?"
But when presenter Elliot Holman broke the news that Hardy is already married to actress Charlotte Riley, the band shouted: "No!"
