Little Mix will not be told to “act like a lady” in their latest video for “Woman Like Me.”
Set at a correctional facility, the girls are forced to conform into stereotypical women, learning to iron clothes and properly sip tea. “My momma always said ‘Girl, you’re trouble’/And now I wonder, could you fall for a woman like me,” the chorus roars as the foursome reject the lessons and live as they please. Minaj hops on her verse as a Victorian painting on the wall.
Fans exploded over Twitter about the breaking of gender norms, commending the girls for promoting equality and strength.
