Irregular Heartbeat Made Jessie J Grow Up Very Quickly

Jessie J 'Who You Are'

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.”

Update: The entire interview at has since been removed.

Jessie J Styles Herself

Jessie J blows a kiss

Jessie J tells the Wall Street Journal she doesn’t try to overthink her look. “I like doing my own makeup,” the 23-year-old said. “I think it’s funny when I read articles about how to get the Jessie J look. If they knew what I went through this morning! I usually set my alarm an hour and a half before I have to leave. My hair takes 25 minutes, then my makeup 45 and I chuck everything I might wear in a bag. I style myself. Fans can sniff a fake and I don’t want to be one.”

Jessie J Defends Cher Lloyd & Her New Hairstyle

Jessie J bites her nails

Jessie J is jumping to the defense of ‘The X Factor’ singer Cher Lloyd after it was claimed the 17-year-old was copying Jessie’s hairstyle. The ‘Do It Like A Dude’ singer told her Twitter followers (@jessiejofficial) earlier today:

Can I just set the record straight… I do NOT own my hair cut nor have I copyrighted it. So if anyone else inc Cher wants a bob then it doesn’t bother me. Its a haircut people, stop making up bullsh*** and creating hype. I think it looks good on her :)

I’ve seen a lot of mags and newspapers and tweets slating her. Its so uncool. She is 17 and doesn’t deserve any of it. And I want people to know that’s how I feel. :) RT @jpe213: @jessiejofficial I can’t believe you have to actually spend time responding to crap like this – #ridiculous
