Little Mix Banned from Meeting Rihanna at X Factor
Little Mix were banned from meeting Rihanna.
The DNA hitmakers and their fellow X Factor contestants were told by the Diamonds star's management team that they couldn't speak to her when she was a guest performer on the UK show last year.
Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson said: "We were on X Factor with Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga was amazing, but we didn't get to speak to Rihanna."
Her bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock added, "Her management wouldn't let anybody meet her, but she walked past me and said, 'Your hair is awesome!' This was when I had my head half shaved, which I hated, so it cheered me up."
However, one star the group - which also features Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall - did enjoy meeting was Kylie Minogue, though they admit they couldn't stop staring at her famous backside.
Jesy told this month's issue of We Love Pop magazine: "We met Kylie at the BRITs. I kept looking at her bum!"
