Instant Follow Friday: Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards Is a Goddess with an Irrelevant Ex

Like the best of us, Perrie Edwards now has an irrelevant ex too.

The newly-single Little Mix member isn’t letting her breakup from former One Direction singer Zayn Malik get her down. In fact, she’s working harder and showing the world who’s boss.

We’re giving props to Edwards this week for Instant Follow Friday.

Edwards, 22, and her Little Mix bandmates Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall are currently in the middle of promoting their newest album Get Weird

At Sunday’s (August 16, 2015) Teen Choice Awards in L.A., the ladies will be performing their hot single “Black Magic,” which remained #1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks (and making Little Mix the first girl group to do so in 8 years).

Formed in 2011 for the eighth cycle of The X Factor (which is where Edwards and Malik met), Little Mix has had generous commercial success both in the UK and US since winning the competition, having sold 2.5 million records worldwide.

Edwards and Malik broke off their engagement on August 4, and it was rumored that Malik did so via text message. Since only douchebags break up with their fiancé via text message, we’re definitely sure Edwards is better off without him.

In celebration of her singledom, Edwards has deleted all photos of her and Malik together on Instagram, the unofficial “burning of the ex’s stuff” of technology. Earlier this week, Edwards posted some beautiful poolside bikini and makeup-free snaps, the unofficial “Bye Felicia, I’ve moved on” posts.

Pool vibes 💦

And of course, her girls have her back during her tough time, both fending off reporters’ questions when needed and assuring fans of Malik’s “irrelevancy” like any awesome girlfriend would.
