Little Mix have slammed 'X Factor' Honey G as fake and say they believe she is an actress
Little Mix believe Honey G is an actress.
The girl group - who won 'The X Factor' in 2011 - have revealed that they think this year's rapper contestant Honey G is a fake.
Jade Thirlwall told The Sun: "I think it's a joke. I don't believe she's real. She's blatantly an actress. Let's just say, I've heard she's an actress."
And Jesy Nelson, told Kiss FM: "She's just no. I think she's an actress, I've been told she is as well."
While Leigh-Anne Pinnock doesn't mind novelty acts in the show, she would prefer to see "real talent" shine through.
She said: "I'm all for entertainment, but I'm also all for real talent as well."
Jesy previously slammed 'The X Factor' for letting novelty acts, such as Honey G and Bratavio, through to the live shows.
She said: "I don't think it's fair that novelty acts get through. I get it in that it becomes a little niche thing and everyone finds it funny, but I just think it's so unfair when so many incredible people don't get through.
"If that would've been [the case] on our year, I would've been f****d off."
Jade added: "Even in our year there were artists like Kitty [Brucknell] who were seen as novelty, but she was still an incredible singer."
And while Leigh-Anne says while there is "no excuse" for the judges, Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh, giving into the such artists she knows how the show works and understands it is for "entertainment" purposes.
She said: "At the same time you have to remember that 'The X Factor' is an entertainment show - they want to get people watching.
"You have to take it for what it is, as annoying as it can be. It's funny watching it because we know what goes on behind closed doors.
"We know how it all works. And you do know when you're on the show who gets more camera time and all that."
