Little Mix is doing damn well, sir, and don’t you forget it. It is much harder for female groups and artists to be successful than it is for their male counterparts. Girls judge each other more, whereas they will pretty much immediately take to any guy group that comes along (within reason). I’m not saying the successes of boy bands and male artists aren’t well deserved, just understand that it takes so much more for female artists to gain supporters. I’m really pulling for Little Mix to have a great career. I think we need more women like them in this business. Spots for women and girls are also more competitive. It seems like we can have hundreds of male acts or bands of a certain kind, but only 1 girl or group can be around for each musical niche at a time. It’s ridiculous. That is why groups get pitted against one another, like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix. I’m definitely not as into Fifth Harmony’s musical style, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to hate on them. Women need to stand up for one another. (That was basically the message of Salute)
Simon Cowell has been in a sexist industry for a long time. I’m not surprised he sees things the way he does. Women will always have to work 10x harder to achieve any equal success.
