18 Times Little Mix Gave Us Friendship Goals

'Get your killer heels, sneakers, pumps or lace up your boots'

Girl bands throughout history have always been synonymous with in-group fighting and behind-the-scenes drama.

All Saints split up over a jacket, lest we forget, while Siobhan Donaghy’s time in Sugababes famously came to an end when she disappeared out of a toilet window.

So it’s great to see Little Mix ruling the charts at the moment, and actually looking as though they’re having a great time doing it.

A lot of the girls’ hit singles - ‘Wings’, ‘Move’ and ‘Salute’ to name just three - don’t exactly skirt around the issues of female friendship and empowerment, and taking a look at their interviews and media appearances makes it clear that they’re not just saying it for effect, they’re really living it.

In fact, the strong bond between Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards is one of the things we love most about the group.

Here are 18 of the moments Little Mix truly proved that they’re ultimate #FriendshipGoals...

1. Their Comments About Female Empowerment

They told Wonderland magazine last year: "Girl power is what we're about. It's what we stand for as a group. We want to do everything we can to make women feel better about themselves."
2. When They Stopped A Song To Comfort Perrie
Perrie was in the middle of a worldwide promo tour when her break-up with Zayn Malik was announced, leading to this emotional moment. Fortunately, she had her BFFs at her side.
3. When Leigh-Anne Refused To Let The Paps Get A Pic Of Perrie Looking Sad

When your friend's going through a break-up, you'll do all you can to make sure their ex doesn't see them looking sad, right?
4. And The Accompanying Prom-Themed Photoshoot Was Just As Brilliant As Their Comments

So excited to be on the cover of the spring issue of Wonderland Fashion Magazine! 🙉😁 x

5. Even If The Prom Itself Isn't All That...

Still, at least they have each other to dance with, right?

Even if no one else is laughing, clearly.
7. ...And They'll Laugh Even If They're Not *All* In On It
Oh, Leigh-Anne.

Here they are with their mothers on the red carpet at the Brit Awards. Adorable.
13. ...And Then SLAYED When They Actually Hit The Stage...
Managing to out-stage Adele, Rihanna and Coldplay is no mean feat, but the girls managed it.
14. ...But They Still Sound Great Stripped Back
Take away the bells and whistles, and you still can't fault those harmonies.
15. When They Stick Up For One Another

When Katie Hopkins slagged Jesy off on Twitter, Jade spat back, telling HuffPost UK: 'I just think she [Hopkins] is a really sad person... I think it’s really sad that she has to try and find some kind of limelight by slating everyone else."
16. When They Went All Out For Halloween

They're clearly not afraid of a group costume - though we never had them down as Kiss fans.
17. When Jade Proved She Was The Biggest Little Mix Fan Of All
