Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock released her powerful BBC documentary Race, Pop And Power, on Thursday, in which Alexandra lamented how ‘f**ked up’ the music industry can be. 

The reality star said that she was also once told when she was aged just 15 by a management company, who she wished to keep anonymous: ‘We’ve got one black person, we can’t have another.’ 

Talking about racism within the music industry, the star said: ‘It’s very British though, we’re taught not to talk about it. It’s a very taboo subject.

‘People are afraid to admit that they have done something that is considered racist. They may not have meant it. Like I know there’s not all bad in people, I really believe that everyone has got good in them.’

Recalling her own past experiences in the music industry, Alexandra continued: ‘Like I remember when my mum used to take me to certain management companies…

‘I won’t name them now because they’re still friends and that’s good, and it’s all love.

‘But when I was 15, they told me and said: “We’ve got one black person, we can’t have another.” And I got that a couple of times.’

Alexandra emotionally added: ‘One thing that actually comes to my head right now… is being told to bleach my skin. Being told that I’m “too dark” to be in the industry.’

The star then started to cry as she continued: ‘I’m going cold talking about it because I really actually don’t like talking about it.’

Recalling what she was once told, Alexandra said: ‘”You need to bleach your skin because you won’t sell any records.”‘

She added: ‘That’s what is so f**ked up about this industry and that is what makes me feel, at times, where I go: “I don’t want to be in this industry.”‘

Breaking down in tears again, Alexandra emotionally continued: ‘They took my confidence away so much that I couldn’t be me.’
