Well that would have been awkward!
The ladies of Little Mix are getting ready to drop their album Get Weird next week, but if not for Urban Dictionary they might have gotten a lot weirder!
Back when the quartet were competing on The X Factor in 2011, they had to change their name a few times.
It was already known that they switched their name from Rhythmix to Little Mix after there were some legal troubles with a charity, but did you know that their name before Rhythmix was actually a bit naughty?!
When the ladies were first put together during the Boot Camp stage of the competition, they went by the name Infinite Bass.
Sounds harmless enough right?
Well, Perrie Edwards revealed that producers told them they had to change their name when they found out what it really meant!
The 22-year-old retold the story saying:
“The producers asked, ‘Have you seen what that means on Urban Dictionary?’ and we were like, ‘No’. It means everlasting orgasm!”
Jade Thirlwall stepped in and explained the the disappointment of the change saying:
“I had shoes made with the name on and everything. I spent good money on them for Judges’ Houses.”
Jesy Nelson went on to explain how they decided on Little Mix stating:
“We always wanted to keep Mix. So we tried RT Mix, which was sh*t!”
Well as HIGHlarious as Infinite Bass would have been, we’re just as happy with Little Mix!
What do you think? Do you like the Little Mix name better — or should they have stuck with
Long Orgasm Infinite Bass?
