Watch Jesy Nelson come to Perrie's rescue when asked about Zayn in an interview

Awkward af.

By Bianca Mastroianni

It doesn't take a genius to realise that Little Mix's banger Shout Out To My Ex is about Perrie's relationship with Zayn.

Lately, when asked about her time with Zayn, Perrie has been open to discussing it. Like how she revealed he dumped her over text, and then left her homeless... but this time, she opted with a LOL face and let Jesy do the talking...

“We just wanted to write a song that could relate to everyone in the world," Jesy explained when the host of The Today Show asked who or what the song was about. "Everyone’s had a bit of a crappy ex, and we feel like this is a song that empowers people. Makes you think, ‘I don’t need you.’"

Too true.

After all the backlash the girls have received lately mainly from their ~revealing outfits~, they may just want some peace and quiet. Note that they're all very covered up during this performance?
