Veteran pop star Mel C has lashed out at girl-group Little Mix for being too sexualised.

“I love Little Mix. I loved them from The X Factor. I just thought they were so different. But they are getting more provocative,” she said.

During a recent appearance on X Factor, Little Mix were slammed for what some viewers deemed ‘inappropriate’ clothing, with many taking to Twitter to share their reactions to the stage outfits.

Even Mel herself declared the girl-group too sexy for her seven-year-old daughter to watch.

“She is a massive Little Mix fan but I’ve started to be more sparing in what I show her. I don’t let her watch videos by artists that aren’t appropriate for her. That makes me a bit sad.”

The former Spice Girl has spoken out about the pressures to portray a sexy image as a female pop star, and has urged the members of Little Mix to stay true to themselves.


“They are all gorgeous and great singers. But they weren’t sexy and it’s got more and more that way. I love them – but I just say, ‘Stay you.’ All young women want to look sexy and hot so I understand it’s hard. But I think it’s such a shame. We live in a narcissistic age – it’s 100 per cent worse than when I was in the Spice Girls. It was a more innocent time.”
