Little Mix reveal backstage Rihanna snub
Little Mix have revealed that they weren't allowed to meet Rihanna when she performed on the X Factor.
The group won the 2011 series of the TV talent programme and its live shows often sees big-name acts perform live.
They told We Love Pop that they managed to bump into the "amazing" Lady Gaga on the show - but Rihanna wasn't allowed to meet anyone.
However, she managed to praise one of Little Mix's haircuts as she walked by. Jesy Nelson said:
"We were on The X Factor' with Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga was amazing, but we didn't get to speak to Rihanna."
Leigh-Anne Pinnock added: "Her management wouldn't let anybody meet her, but she walked past me and said, 'Your hair is awesome!' This was when I had my head half shaved, which I hated, so it cheered me up."
