All eyes have been on the girls of Little Mix lately, since their currently in America promoting their new single "Black Magic," but also because Perrie Edwards has been dealing with a very public breakup with her former fiancé, Zayn Malik. Perrie has said her bandmates Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have been helping her deal with everything, and she's doing well, but during the group's performance of their new song, "The End," on AOL Build, Perrie broke down into tears and stopped singing because she was just too overcome with emotion.

Granted, this performance did take place on the band's four year anniversary, so emotions were already running high, but the lyrics of the song hint that her waterworks might be because of Zayn.
In the song, Perrie sang, "And no one can love you, the way I used to do," and right before she was going to start the next line, "but love isn’t fair," she simply started to cry. Her girls quickly reacted, halting the performance and gathering around Perrie in a comforting group hug. Clearly, the song meant something to Perrie, but with her besties by her side, supporting her and rallying around her, we have a feeling she is going to come out of this bad breakup an even stronger person and even closer with her best friends. And that is what girl power is all about.
