Jessie J Reckons The UK Doesn’t Appreciate Her Singing As Much As America Does, Apparently
In a new interview with Women’s Health, Jessie J has opened up about her differing profiles here in the UK and across the pond, and she’s not too happy about it.
Apparently us Brits don’t appreciate her talent as much as our American counterparts, and this makes her really sad. Poor Jessie.
When asked how she felt about not being asked to perform at the BRIT awards, she replied: “It makes me sad. I’ve done the Grammys, the VMAs… my profile in America is that I’m kind of celebrated as one of the greatest singers and I love it.”
She added: “I wanna be up there with the Celine Dions, the Whitneys, the Beyoncés and Arethas. I go hard because I hope and pray that one day, people look back and go, ‘She could really f**king sing, you know’. Which is why I keep going.”
The ‘Price Tag’ hitmaker was also asked about why she doesn't reveal too much about her private life anymore, to which the singer replied: “I wish I could be more open about certain things, but as the years have gone by, I’ve definitely become less so.”
She continued: “All the things my personality had that made me become the person who felt confident enough to be Jessie J, fame just takes away. Like spontaneity, honesty, openness. Just being completely transparent.”
The full interview with Jessie J appears in the March 2016 issue of Women’s Health, on sale 9th February.
