Perrie Edwards on boyfriend Zayn Malik’s tatto which covers his bicep: ‘It is weird.. But it’s nice that every time he’s away from us, he just has to look and I’m there on his arm.’ Zayn’s tattoo artist: ‘He talked about how great their relationship is and how he wanted to get an image of her. You know, not an exact picture but something that reminded him of her and I thought that was really cool, really sweet.’
Perrie can’t smell, she told BBC: ‘I have never smelt anything, but I think I smelt coffee once. When people go, ah she’s cooking a Sunday roast, I’m like, how do you know that. I’m like, this is amazing, it’s like magic. I think I smelt coffee once. People are always like, ‘Oh, isn’t that really horrible?’ and I’m like, ‘No’, because I’ve never known what it’s like to smell. If I’d had it and then it disappeared I’d be like, ‘Argh’. I wear the same perfume all the time, because everyone says, ‘Oh you smell nice’ and then I’m like, ‘Ah, OK’.’
Little Mix have made £1.2 million as of the end of the financial year in December 2012, with that figure not even taking into account income from their recent UK tour and album royalties. They have set up their own company Eternal Dance Media to look after their growing earnings, from merchandise, record sales, tours and appearances.
‘The girls have barely had any time off since they won The X Factor. They got straight into the studio, then their tour, then were thrown into trying to crack America. They’re now starting to see some proper records for all of the hard graft. For a long the they were only on a very small amount of money, because it always takes a while for song royalties to come through.
But now it’s started to come in thick and fast. Given the girls have almost now expenses, they are always working, they get most of their clothes free and things such as bottle service in nightclubs are gratis, a lot of the income into that business will be saved up.’
