LITTLE To mix together may remain silent on their impending hiatus, but the wheels are very moving for the girls to all become major stars in their own right.
And I can exclusively reveal that Jade Thirlwall is the latest of the trio to start moving on her own, having signed with the same management company as superstars Harry Styles and Mark Ronson.
An insider said, “Jade had a series of meetings with Full Stop Management earlier this year and she has now signed on the dotted line.
“They think she’s going to be a big star, just like Harry was after the One Direction hiatus.
“Jade has plenty of ideas for her solo music and she’s already recorded some amazing songs that have impressed bosses in the industry.
“Besides music, she’s making plans for more TV appearances and there’s no doubt that she can become a mega-star in her own right.
Jade is still incredibly close to her Little Mix bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards, and they all support each other behind the scenes.
“It will be a really exciting time for the three of them.”
In March, I revealed how Leigh-Anne was recruited by Tap Music Management – the team that led the careers of Dua Lipa and Ellie Goulding.
Along with her new Christmas movie, Boxing Day, Leigh-Anne has also landed a major presenting role as host of the Mobo Awards.
She will join Munya Chawawa at the Coventry Building Society Arena on December 5.
Little Mix will begin their twice-delayed Confetti tour next April before going their separate ways later in 2022.
Their former bandmate, Jesy Nelson, is expected to release their debut solo album around the same time.
After a rocky start after the release of Boyz, Jesy will kick off next year with a new single from the band.
A source added: “Mid-January has been scheduled for Jesy’s next single.
It’s safe to say that so far things haven’t gone as planned, but hopefully the New Year will bring a new era for Jesy.
“The album is already half-finished and discussions are underway to have her perform at the Brit Awards in February.”
THE GRAMMYS DON’T LOOK BACK
GRAMMYS leaders have defended themselves after being criticized for handing two nominations to Marilyn Manson at next year’s ceremony after being accused of sexual misconduct.
CEO Harvey Mason Jr said, “We will not limit who can submit their material.
“We won’t look back on people’s history, we won’t look at their criminal records.”
FAMOUS FLIES TO STATES
AFTER more than a year of their worldwide antics curtailed by Covid travel bans, a wave of stars is finally crossing the pond to America now that the rules have been relaxed.
Piers Morgan was one of the first to abandon the UK in favor of the US, using frequent British Airways flights between London and New York.
Meanwhile, the change meant only after months apart. Harry Styles’ mother Anne left the United States to join him on his Love On Tour US trek.
She was seen dancing with the children of her girlfriend Olivia Wilde during her show in San Diego.
JIM: ED NEEDED ME ON THE VOICE
JIMMY CARR has confirmed he sings on the Ed Sheeran hit Visiting Hours.
The comedian first spoke about performing on the runway, alongside Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue.
Ed previously said Jimmy put his voice on the song in September, but Jimmy has never confirmed it until now.
Speaking on the Russell Howard Hour, which airs tonight on Sky Max, Jimmy said, “I’m backing vocals on Ed Sheeran’s single, Visiting Hours.
“I have a funny musical life. It’s me and Kylie Minogue.
“Johnny McDaid, who was on Snow Patrol and writes with Ed, is one of my best friends.
“He played the song to me about eight months ago, I was just in a puddle, I was like, ‘Ah man, that’s so beautiful. “
“I find that music is a real way to connect with grief, I love what the music does. It reminds you of the people you love. It’s such a beautiful song.
“And he said, ‘Oh, you’ve got to do backing vocals for that. I said, “I don’t think that’s a good idea,” but he said he could make it work.
“So I did the backing vocals. I can hear myself on it.
Laughing, he added, “They needed it – this song is nothing without me!
ADELE LAD MISSING WORLD PREMIERE
SHE is one of the biggest stars in the world, but for her son Adele is just “mom”.
The singer revealed in a new interview how nine-year-old Angelo hid under a blanket and performed on her phone as she released her new album 30 to friends.
Adele said: “I got pretty emotional during this. Angelo was there at the listening party and he put a blanket over his head, playing a game on his iPhone. He is only nine years old, bless him!
She hit back at claims that her ex-husband Simon Konecki had got hold of her fortune, estimated at around £ 130million.
Adele added: “There have been all kinds of rumors as to why we broke up, that he got all my money.
“Like I was ever so stupid for letting someone have all my money – not that they never asked for it.”
THE BOTTLE OF GEMMA
MOST stars enjoy a chic sip of champagne, but Gemma Chan carried her bottle like a bag when she hosted the Swarovski VIP Party at Annabel’s Members Club.
The Skins actress showed off her £ 4,650 Big Bubbles clutch from designer Judith Leiber at the party in London.
Gemma coordinated the expensive accessory with a dramatic green dress that was cut to the thigh with a long train to one side.
In addition to hosting top stars at the event in Berkeley Square, Mayfair, Gemma was also able to let loose at night – partying with models including Nadine Leopold.
NOL starts early in Robbie Williams’ house.
His American wife Ayda Field has revealed that the family and their four children will start celebrating tomorrow after Thanksgiving today.
She said: “Rob is looking forward to Christmas, and now that he has a Christmas album – the one he made two years ago, I can listen to it.
“I told the kids, after Thanksgiving is over we’ll start watching Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music and we’ll be in full Christmas mode.
“Come Friday, I’m in Christmas mode. I am Christmas.
NICKI X KARDASHIAN
NICKI MINAJ has broken a promise to Kim Kardashian while promoting her new line of underwear.
The Super Bass singer posed in a Skims x Fendi ensemble from Kim’s collaboration with the Italian fashion house.
Nicki wore the bra and pants with an autumnal patchwork coat and knee-length boots for the shoot.
She shared the photos with her 163 million Instagram followers.
Kim and Nicki have been friends for years, the latter gifting Kim’s daughter North a diamond-encrusted Barbie necklace when she was born in 2013.
