, the romantic comedy centers on four friends searching for love while also balancing ambitious careers.
Now I’m thinking about how many girls groups we have and it’s like two: Little Mix, who are overseas – and by the way, I put them together when I did “X-Factor” with Simon [Cowell] – and Fifth Harmony. Girl groups are just such a great part of history and they showcase camaraderie among women and females. When I look at these girls, I’m thinking, “I like her voice and it could be something different and unique to contribute to a group.” Then I’ll ask the girls, “Do you know how talented you are? ” If they give me the “yes,” then perfect, we’re going to perfect it even more. She told me, “You’re smarter than you think and you’re much braver than you think.” It’s really a blessing to have people around you that see the best in you when you can’t. The more we band together as women, the more we are a powerhouse. I don’t remember what happened I just remember my feet and looking down at my feet. You mix the out-of-body experience with preparation and anything can happen. I don’t like people to do my hair or makeup [during that time]. You have to center yourself because once you get out on stage all of your senses are heightened to a gazillion percent. As soon as you put the mic out, or hear the hum of the mic, it vibrates in the rest of your body and it makes you sing louder, dance harder. I think that’s what we love so much about Lady Gaga. It’s what we love so much about David Bowie, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson– they weren’t afraid to be themselves. As soon as it did, it was such a great feeling for me because I believed in myself enough to not be around that person. I was like, “I’m about to be 30, I need to prioritize.
“I dated this one guy and was stimulated by his conversation but he had his eyes on, like, eight other women.
I was giving all my emotions, falling for this person, and he didn’t even deserve it.

I think that it’s just paying attention to who they are – to their body language, to their voice, to the way they move – and seeing the potential in them. I’m so keen on girlfriends having great friends and that’s what I want this group to feel. To me it’s a higher power telling you, “This is what we need to be happy. This is what we need to push ourselves.” I think that listening to your intuition gets you where you need to be. My higher power speaks to me every day– at all times of the day, and night. They just knew what they wanted to sound like, what the music wanted to make them feel like, what they knew they wanted to express, what message they wanted to send to their fans and their audience.
