Does Little Mix Really Mean They’re Just Taking a Break

British girl group Little Mix announced that they will be “taking a break from Little Mix,” after their tour ends next year in a social media post yesterday. In the post, they also included that they “have plans for more music,” but isn’t that what they all say?

We have heard it all before from groups like One Direction, Fifth Harmony, Fun, and countless other bands that have announced their hiatus, but none of them have yet to return. Though the post from Little Mix seems genuine, fans can’t help but fear the worst about what an undefined break timeline means.

Given that two of the members, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, have just had children this year, it does make sense for a break to happen now. They surely want to spend time with their babies and experience the role of motherhood. They have also just celebrated 10 years together as a group. A break is well-deserved.

Their timing seems all too familiar compared to One Direction’s hiatus. When Zayn Malik left, the boy band took a possibly eternal break. Former member Jesy Nelson had left Little Mix almost a year ago, and now they are taking a break. Hopefully, Little Mix does not swerve in the same direction.

Some bands have resurfaced lately to offer some hope for the fans even after long periods of being apart. Big Time Rush seems to be making a comeback after all the members went their separate ways for solo careers when their TV show ended in 2013. Plenty of other bands have survived the hiatus too, but we can’t help but feel a little nervous that we will never heed them together again

    Gunna Ends His Series With a High Note on DS4EVER

However, for those that do enjoy Gunna’s music, he has delivered once again with one of, if not, his strongest projects with DS4EVER. The fourth and final installment of the rapper’s Drip Season series of projects, Gunna made sure to go out with a bang for this album.

    Why We Have to Stop Equating Album Sales to Quality

    In the few years I’ve been on this earth there are some things that will always get on my nerves. One of these things, and the topic of this article, is the idea that an album selling a high amount must mean that the album is objectively good. I’ve heard plenty of times before, if go into the comment section of a post that is asking if a certain Drake album is better than another rapper’s, you’ll see a legion of Drake fans saying he sold more so ofc Drake’s is better. I’m here to say that line of thinking is completely wrong.
