Little Mix Lip Sync With Drag Queen Dopplegangers in New 'Bounce Back' Video: Watch
Ever since their official debut back in 2011 on The X Factor, pop quartet Little Mix have always found love from queer fans. Whether it was in the not-so-coded lyrics of “Secret Love Song,” or their outward love and support for RuPaul’s Drag Race, the girls of Little Mix have also made it clear that the feeling is mutual.
The group showed their queer fans some love once again when they released a new “Pride Version” music video for their song “Bounce Back.” The clip opens with drag queen Freida Slaves erasing the name “Little Mix” on a chalkboard and replacing it with “Dirty Trix,” the competing group of queens from London queer collective Sink the Pink.
Throughout the video, each of the members of Little Mix (Jade Thirwall, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock) face off against their drag look-alikes (Honey Foxx, Jonbenet Blonde, Johnny Bones and Freida Slaves, respectively) trying to upstage them in a fierce lip sync battle. Ultimately, though, the video ends with everyone coming together for an epic dance party.
But the video isn’t just for fun -- the clip opens and closes with an advertisement for AKT, a British charity organization dedicated to providing “safe homes and better futures” for homeless LGBTQ youth.
This also isn’t the first time that Sink the Pink has found their queens working with major stars. This summer, Melanie C is touring the world with a group of queens from the queer collective for a special Pride-themed tour. A group of queens also appeared in a special Pride-edition of P!nk’s “Walk Me Home” video.
