Jessie J spoke with The Sun’s TV Buzz in a Q&A, where the British pop singer talked about how her foot is recovering, performing at Wembley Stadium, the mystery of her sexuality, bullying, vacationing in the Bahamas, her busy schedule and how being diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat when she was 11 and suffering a mini stroke at 18 has affected her.
“A lot of people ask if I’m teetotal because of my heart and I say no, I’m teetotal because I want to be healthy,” the 23-year-old said. “I want to get up every day at 4am and not be hungover or smell like cigarettes. It’s changed me in that it’s put me in a place where I have to go for what I want, because life isn’t guaranteed. However athletic you are, health sometimes isn’t on your side and unfortunately I’ve always been someone who’s been in and out of hospital. It’s something that made me grow up very quickly but I also think it made me appreciate life very quickly. I actually think it’s a good thing.”
