Little Mix singer Jade Thirlwall shares adorable childhood pictures

DUBAI: In celebration of her newest single, “Holiday” with Little Mix bandmates Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, singer Jade Thirlwall has posted a string of adorable childhood throwbacks on Instagram.

The 2011 “X-Factor” finalist, whose maternal grandfather is Yemeni and maternal grandmother Egyptian, strategically chose nine photographs of her childhood holidays to post to her 6.6 million Instagram followers.

The series of images, simply captioned “‘Holiday’ out now,” show the singer posing in various sun-filled locales with her family, rocking braids and sipping on mocktails.


 In one of the pictures posted, Thirlwall can be seen on stage holding a microphone with what appears to be back-up dancers behind her. “I need to know what ur singing in pic 5 (sic),” commented British recording artist MNEK, to which the Little Mix star replied: “wanna say Am To PM Christina Milian but it was On The Beach by Cliff Richard (sic).”

Naturally, the singer’s fans were quick to gush over the adorable throwback images, taking to the comments section to share their admiration for the star.

“These photos are something I didn’t know I needed until now,” wrote one user.


Another commented: “You were adorable back then and you’re adorable now.”

The 27-year-old singer, who was born in the UK, made her debut with girl group Little Mix in 2011. 

Thirlwall has released five albums with the group, including their debut album “DNA” in 2012, which sold just under 60 million records worldwide, placing Little Mix in the top five of the best selling girl groups of all time. 

“Holiday” is the second single from Little Mix’s new era.

The band shot the visual for the new song while socially-distanced in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. 

"It was a very bizarre experience,” said Perrie speaking on the Capital Evening Show with Jimmy Hill. “It was like, everybody had to fill out forms, everybody had to wear masks and visors who were on set, there was only a certain number of people on set. We had to get our temperature taken. We had to stay far away from each other, and they are going to somehow superimpose it.”

Bella Hadid donates designer clothing for a good cause

DUBAI: If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on Bella Hadid’s ultra-luxe wardrobe featuring brands like Dior, Off-White and Vivienne Westwood, you may just have a chance. The part-Palestinian model this week decided to take part in the Sidewalk Sale for Social Justice in Brooklyn by donating a slew of her own clothing items to the sale, and it’s all for a good cause.

The Sidewalk Sale for Social Justice, which took place on Sunday, benefits a variety of causes such as the Black Lives Matter movement, which Hadid has been quite outspoken in her support of. 

The Palestinian-Dutch model documented the charitable event via her Instagram Stories, and showcased the “lil rack of stuff” she had for sale, which included plenty of designer items.

“I’ve got a lil rack of stuff!! curated by my sis @haleywollens ! But also so many great vendors !!! 100% of proceeds going to @abundantbeginnings @brooklyn_supported_agriculture! Thank you @sorrymydude for this (sic),” she wrote alongside a photo of herself laying among the donated pieces of clothing.

The Sidewalk Sale for Social Justice coordinators were thrilled with Hadid’s charitable contributions, and reposted her donated items on their Instagram Stories.

“This week we have donations from the best dressed baby doll @bellahadid,” said one of the posts.

It’s not the first time the model cleans out her closet for a humanitarian cause. In June, the 23-year-old donated a pair of paint-splattered Miu Miu boots for British Vogue’s online auction in aid of organizations  NHS Charities Together and the NAACP.
