Speaking to Teen.com, band member Lauren Jauregui said: “We do it because we want to spread the message of girl empowerment and we want to make awesome music that girls want to turn on and listen to, so if we’re inspiring young women, that’s what we want to keep doing. We’re going to do that as long as people allow us.”
However, she did say that the band may take a leaf out of One Direction‘s book and pop away to focus on solo endeavours for a while.
“It’s just a realistic thing; we’re in a group and all have creative difference, and that’s something that realistically in ten to fifteen years is where we should be. By then, we’d be doing this for a very long time. At the end of the day, though, if we’re successful, we’ll keep going with it. This is what we do.”
Ten to fifteen years? Ok, we think we can deal with that.
