hurtful words


Think before you talk : Mollie opens up about those words

One for us all to think about, think about what you say before you actually say it!

Mollie King has revealed that it took her a long time to toughen up to hurtful comments.

The 27-year-old who is one fifth of girl band The Saturdays said that it can be difficult at times to not take negative comments to heart.

Speaking to the Evening Standard she said: “It has honestly taken a while to teach myself to toughen up because you can take it personally and I think you can get a bit lost in it all. It’s part of the job. It definitely is hurtful.”

She continued: “You just have to think with everything I do some people are going to like it and some are going to hate it, you can’t win them all. You’ve just got to go with what you feel.”

King – who is dating model David Gandy – is the current face of Magnum’s Pink & Black campaign and has helped build the ultimate Pink & Black experience which reflects the playful and sophisticated sides of people’s personalities.

Despite three of her fellow band mates, Una Foden, Frankie Bridge and Rochelle Humes being mothers, King insisted that they still know how to show off their playful sides on tour.

“Obviously with being mums it’s such a huge responsibility so they were very much wanting to speak to the babies, and their husbands bought them up as much as they could,” she said.

“But the girls still know how to let their hair down as well.”

She described being on tour as the “best part of her job” and revealed that she wouldn’t want to go solo as she would miss the “incredible feeling” of coming off of the stage and sharing the moment with the girls.
