Little Mix want to "make women feel empowered" with "saucier" material
'Shout Out To My Ex' hitmakers Little Mix have revealed that the freedom that comes with getting older has been liberating because they're able to write about "naughtier" things in their lyrics.
The girls told Britain's The Sun newspaper that being able to have "saucier" subject matter in their songs is a great thing:
"We’re a bit saucier, naughtier. We’re a bit more grown up and we can say things now that maybe four years ago we would have been scared to say. There’s a couple of songs that are a bit naughty – but in a good way."
Member Jade Thirlwall explained that the lyrics in a song like 'Touch', for example, are meant to empower females: "They’re songs that make women feel empowered. Blokes have songs like, ‘Oh yeah, girl in the club, yeah,’ It’s like our version of that, but in a really empowering way for a woman, because it doesn’t always have to be a man that sings about naughty things, does it?"
