You go girls!

Little Mix currently have the No. 1 song in the U.K. thanks to their new single Shout Out to My Ex… but for some reason, all anyone can talk about are their rivalries with other girl groups.

Not only did Melanie C already weigh in on the X Factor winners' song, but music fans across the world have been pretty vocal about the Zayn Malik-inspired track's similarities to G.R.L.'s Ugly Heart!

G.R.L. themselves even called them out over it.

Luckily for Mixers everywhere, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock don't seem very phased by the comparisons.

In fact, the band stopped by Belgium's QMusic over the weekend where Jade actually used her friendship with G.R.L.'s Emmalyn Estrada to dispel those song-stealing rumors, saying:

It's the battle of the girl groups!

Little Mix may be calling out Zayn Malik in their new single Shout Out To My Ex, but he's not the only musician currently feuding with the quartet.

That's because after their performance on The X Factor Sunday night, music fans noticed some supposed similarities between Perrie Edwards' breakup anthem and G.R.L.'s Ugly Heart!

The songs came out about two years apart, and while we definitely hear some of the same inspirations between the pop bops… we're not so sure Perrie, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock's first single off LM4 is a full-on ripoff of G.R.L.'s biggest hit.

Although, we are obsessed with both… LOLz!!

Ch-ch-check out Shout Out To My Ex and Ugly Heart and decide for yourself (below)!!!

The girls are back in town!

It's been nearly two years since rising pop star Simone Battle took her own life, but her G.R.L. bandmates finally seem ready to get back to making music.

As you may remember, Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton, and Paula van Oppen tried to keep the girl group together after the sudden suicide, but after releasing their musical tribute Lighthouse in honor of the late singer, they decided to go their separate ways.

G.R.L. Singer Simone Battle's Money Troubles Were About To Be Solved

It's so sad what money can make people do.

G.R.L. singer Simone Battle tragically committed suicide a few months ago, and some speculated it was because of money.

At the time, Simone only had a few thousand dollars in her bank account, but she had a lot more on the way.

Due to contracts with Sony, Coca-Cola, and other companies, Simone's family could stand to inherit a large sum of her money, but there's a catch.

Simone's mother Donna Morgan has to be officially named the administrator of Simone's estate first. Her application is currently pending.

But it just goes to show that problems are only temporary, and sometimes a solution is right around the corner. So sad.
