Jesy Nelson has taken aim at unrealistic Instagram filters, for making her nose look ‘tiny and skinny’.
The singer – who left Little Mix in December – took to her story to rant against those who created certain filters that changed facial features.
‘So I have been going through my filters on my phone,’ the 29-year-old began. ‘And I won’t lie, like I love a little Instagram filter that makes you look a bit more tanned, or makes your skin just look a little bit fresher.
‘But every filter that I’ve been on makes my nose tiny and skinny. It makes your lips huge and your eyes either a different colour or really big.
‘Why does every filter change your nose?’
‘I really don’t understand this, because for me, your nose is like the most prominent point of your face,’ Jesy continued. ‘I feel like noses are literally what make you, you.
‘I don’t understand why Instagram feels the need to literally squash your nose and make it really skinny.
‘What’s wrong with a standard nose? I’m just so confused as to why whoever makes these filters thinks that that is what beautiful.
‘I just think it’s bloody weird.’
Over to you, Instagram…
Jesy’s post comes after a rollercoaster few months – which saw her depart Little Mix after nine years in the group.
The Break Up Song star confirmed the news in a lengthy statement, explaining that she was taking time to focus on her mental health.
‘The truth is recently being in the band has really token a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard,’ she said at the time.
‘There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focussing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.
‘So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix.
‘I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy. I’m ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I’m not sure what its going to look like right now, but I hope you’ll still be there to support me.
As well as leaving Little Mix, Jesy is thought to have called time on her relationship with Sean Sagar, after nine months together.
Sources close to the pair told The Sun: ‘Jesy and Sean have decided to take some time apart.
‘It’s such a shame, as they made a lovely couple, but recently things haven’t been right between them.
’Jesy just left Little Mix and is working hard on herself right now – she has to put herself first.’
