Jade Thirlwall doesn’t think fans treat her like a “real person”.
The Little Mix singer insisted on getting attention because she will never feel “normal” and she gets “a little scared” when she sees groups of people waiting for her.
She said, “I think when you are famous you don’t see some people as real people anymore, so they think that doing things like reaching for your arm is acceptable.

“They feel that they own a part of you or that they have a right to be in your personal space because you somehow asked for it.
“I still get a little scared when I leave a venue and there are a lot of people outside – it will never feel normal.”
But the 28-year-old star insisted that the positives outweigh the negatives and she takes pride in the fact that she and her bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards are still going strong.

Speaking to a Dublin radio station, she added: “We have managed to evolve over the years and adapt to changes in the industry.
“That was one of our strengths – we’re still Little Mix and still have fun and that powerful sound.”
After recently giving birth to son Axel and Leigh-Anne, Perrie welcomed twins, and Jade recently admitted that her WhatsApp group has changed massively.
She said, “Leigh actually sent me a picture of the babies and I was like, ‘What’s that by the way?’ and she said, ‘That sucks’. It was a really nice picture of you and then just like shit by the way. I said, ‘Oh, OK!’ “
Jade also announced that she would like to return home at some point to support her favorite football team.
When asked about her plans apart from the music, she said: “Hopefully [I will] go home a bit and watch my favorite football team because I missed it for a while, South Shields FC. “
