Bring popstar-types in the public eye, the Little Mix ladies obviously know what it's like to have their bodies scrutinised and all that bullshit in the press. Thankfully, though, they refuse to let it faze 'em and have instead advised girls to 'encourage each other' when it comes to promoting body positivity.

Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie have just kicked off their (bloody brilliant) Get Weird Tour; and they've insisted their on-stage outfits are totally appropriate for their audience.

Chatting to The Mirror, Perrie said: "We wear what we feel comfortable in. We're not overly sexy in what we do anyway. We go for sexy/cute. We'd never want to be ­scandalous.

"I think we've got the right kind of balance. Some of us are 24. We aren't going to be able to wear stuff like this for the rest of our life, and parade around in little dresses and stuff, but at the same time, we are just girls."

Asked whether or not she agrees that Kim Kardashian's nude selfie was 'empowering,' Perrie added: "The way I see it, when I see Leigh-Anne in a bikini on holiday, I don't think, 'Oh God, Leigh-Anne, put it away'. I look at her and think, 'Yes girl, you've got one of the most insane figures I've ever seen. You f***ing rock that on the beach, because I would'. Girls should be like that.

"We need to encourage each other and if you don't want to have your body out then you don't have to. I never used to want to get my figure out, but now I'm like, 'Yes, here it is'."

Good on ya, Pezza.

What d'ya make of Perrie's comments, eh? Tweet us over @sugarscape and all that, purlease. THAAAANKS LOVE YA.
