After the Little Mix feud, Jesy Nelson will appear on the Graham Norton Show for her debut UK interview.
Jesy Nelson will perform her first single Boyz on The Graham Norton Show, despite the continuing scandal surrounding her and her former band Little Mix.
After her ongoing ‘blackfishing’ row, Jesy Nelson confirmed her first UK broadcast appearance.
The 30-year-old will play her debut single Boyz and be interviewed by Graham Norton on The Graham Norton Show.
It comes after the singer’s tumultuous week, which saw her at the center of a major fight with her former band Little Mix.
Jesy was first accused of ‘blackfishing,’ a word that refers to a white person exploiting black culture and aesthetics for personal benefit.
She then went on an Instagram Livestream with US rapper Nicki Minaj, who supported Jesy against the charges and called Little Mix member Leigh-Anne Pinnock a “jealous clown” in the process.
Despite the drama, Jesy is believed to be hard at work rehearsing for her role on the BBC1 show and is determined to not let anything get in the way of her success.
An insider told The Sun: “She’s really putting her heart and everything into it.” Jesy is well aware of the controversy that has erupted around Boyz.
“It’d be a lie to pretend it hasn’t contaminated the release, but she’s still really proud of how far she’s gone.”
“She feels safe in Graham’s hands, so she feels at ease on the show.” It’s time to get back to the music after the past week.” However, the harm may already be done, as several fans have expressed their displeasure with Jesy’s performance on the event, citing the continuing conflict as a reason.
On Instagram, Leigh-Anne, Perrie Edwards, and Jade Thirlwall have all unfollowed their old pal, whereas Jesy only follows P.Diddy and Nicki Minaj, with whom she worked on Boyz.
The backlash is claimed to have “devastated” Jesy, who believes it is a “personal attack against her.”
“What should have been a pleasant and good occasion has been marred by what has begun to feel like a personal attack against her,” a source told Metro.
“It’s starting to develop into a Little Mix vs. Jesy tale, when the band and Jesy have always stood for women supporting women, so it’s a shame to see things turn so nasty.”
