Lauren Jauregui came to Little Mix's defense after a radio personality criticized the British group for going naked in a new "empowering" music video. As expected from our Fifth Harmony girl who is also an icon of girl power.

Little Mix recently released their fifth album alongside the visuals for "Strip" featuring the girls promoting body positivity in nothing but insults scrawled all over their bodies. However, British anchor Julia Hartley-Brewer didn't think the concept was complementary to the target message - calling it "a cheap way to sell themselves."

"Little Mix strip naked and are scrawled with insults. Yet again, young women pretend that going naked empowers them. It doesn’t. It’s just another cheap way to sell themselves. But I suppose it makes a nice change from this group dressing like hookers..." she tweeted.

To which Lauren responded: "If your intention is the empowerment of women, how about you don’t add yourself to the list of misogynists who deem what is appropriate enough to be “respectable”. All forms deserve respect. They are no less empowered because of their clothing choices. Don’t be salty they look (fire)."

The broadcaster, who got bombarded with criticism from fans, revealed that she's seen Little Mix perform live with her daughter. However, she didn't back down, saying they are good singers but "they just need to put more clothes on."
