Jamelia: “Messing Up Is Not a Good Look”
The Brummie songstress says a recent bout of stage fright was a wake-up call
Jamelia says she has picked herself up and dusted herself off after a recent showcase where she forgot her lines a whopping NINE times.
Talking to MTV UK News she said, It was my first performance in two years and I honestly just got an attack of the nerves.
I was trying to sing (Coldplays) Clocks and I just went blank. I had tears welling up in my eyes.
But fortunately after a hug from her man and her daughter she pulled it together - and she can now see the bright side.
Performances like that are very humbling because I was so confident when I went on stage. I was like, Im back! But I wasnt
I love it because it was a slap on the legs and made me think, Cmon girl sort yourself out.'
It was the first time Ive stopped a song more than once and it wasnt a good look. I wont do it again!
Jam's new single 'Something About You' hits the shops on September 11
