Jessie J On Love, Growing Up And Why She's Feeling Sexier Than Ever

Jessie J On Love, Growing Up And Why She's Feeling Sexier Than Ever

Never one to hold back on her opinions, the multi-platinum-selling singer chatted to us about everything from settling down to body image and her two biggest dreams in life

On love:

“I feel like I’m at a point where I don’t want to just be with someone for the sake of it. Any guy I meet now, I’m like, ‘Are you a husband? Are you a dad?’"

On being called a diva:

“It comes with the territory, sadly. Yes, I’m passionate, very direct and honest, and I know that can come across as rudeness, but honestly, it’s not!”


On being told she may never walk again:

“I was like you f*****g watch me. The doctor that said that, I hope they bought my album. Three times over!”

On feeling sexier than ever:

“So I should! These are my peak years!”

On overcoming insecurities:

“I’ve had many moments where I’ve thought, ‘This is it. I’m not going to be able to do what I do any more. It was my label going, ‘Is she selling enough? Is she healthy enough? Is she willing to be sexual enough?’ I had to discover all those attitudes by myself, and deal with them.”



On embracing her body:

“There are so many people that I know who have conformed through plastic surgery. It’s depressing. After all, this is how God made me, and when I have kids, if I’m like, ‘Be confident, go on,’ if they then say, ‘But Mummy, you’ve got a boob job,’ what would I say?” 

On being a role model:

“It’s almost like you’re living in a box, or living under someone else’s dictation, my dad said, ‘You can’t live in fear, but you can’t live in denial either.’ As in, everything you do is going to be looked at, but you can’t not speak your mind. There’s always going to be one or two – or a million – people going, ‘Well, why did she do that? Basically, you know, you can never win.”


On her sexuality:

“I am so for love who you want to love. I just got to a point where I felt like it was affecting my life and my career, being branded as something I’ve never said that I was. I don’t want to be labelled, and that’s it, really. I’ve always apologised if I’ve offended anyone, too; I never meant to.”

On her two biggest dreams:

"I want to be a worldwide superstar, and a mum and wife. Because I’ve seen how much joy it’s given my mum. I try to fall in love as much as I can. Everyone that I’m dating, that I’m sleeping with… I love the feeling of being in love. It’s why I’m in such a good place. I’m learning to love myself.”
