Jade Thirlwall has opened up about Little Mix’s future following the predictable news of Jesy Nelson Long break from the band.
Jesse, 29, announced Tuesday that she is discontinuing the The x factor Winner group for “special health reasons”.
The decision leaves band mates Jade, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock to continue promoting their sixth studio album Confetti as a trilogy.
This weekend, the trio will be making their first public appearance since Jesse’s statement during their performance on The Jonathan Ross Show.
Before Friday’s airing, Jade was questioned about what Little Mix was in store with Jesse stepping down during a conversation with Hit Ash Network London.
With brutal honesty, Jade admitted: “You know, ultimately in the future we might explode and do our own things – but Little Mix will never die.
“We’ve always said that – we’re like, we always need Little Mix,” she assured fans.
Jade, 27, revealed that she and her band mates are looking forward to pursuing other projects and share what she wants to do next.
“I think it’s good for people to start doing their own small business. I definitely want to travel more and see more fans around the world,” she explained.
Before Jesse spoke publicly about her breakup, she touched on her desire to spend time apart from her band mates, who she said had been with them all day every day, during an interview with You magazine.
We are never with each other and we’re always busy. Our morning starts early, we finish really late, ”said Jesse, as he discusses taking a break from the girls.
In the past few weeks, Jesy missed the final of the band’s BBC One talent show The Search and withdrew from a party he hosted at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
A source close to the band told The Sun that they are already planning their solo career.
“The girls have been open and friendly with each other and with the current management team.
“They have started discussions with some potential managers and agents about what their individual careers might look like.
“Some girls might end up taking over one-on-one projects with their current management team as well. But this isn’t about ending the group, it’s about looking to the future.”
