Jessie J Talks Kylie And Miley In TV Interview
Pop star gets chatty with Alan Carr, while wearing 1980s fancy dress...
Wearing a garish outfit and hoop earrings for her spot on the Channel 4 chat show, she was asked what she thought of pop icon Kylie stepping into her shoes.
She said: "I think what I love about Kylie being on the show is that she's going to teach the contestants something that I couldn't, which is about longevity.
"Every coach that's on the show teaches something different, which is why I think it should change up, you know. If we are preaching that we're successful, we shouldn't always be available to be on the show every year for four or five months, because then we're lying to the contestants.
"So I think it's amazing that Kylie’s doing it, I think it's going to be interesting to see what she brings, but no I think she's going to be great. I hope she's tough though. I hope that she's critical, because that's what I want to be replaced with as well, because I felt like I was the most honest."
And interviewer Carr responded: "Yeah we don't want nice Kylie, we want bitch Kylie!"
And Jessie replied: "We want constructive Kylie."
But she was less positive about Miley Cyrus when the subject of twerking came up, expressing her disapproval over that recent MTV VMAs performance.
Jessie said: "I actually find it quite sad. No I do, I find it sad, because I think she's really young, and I don't know, I feel like, I know how hard it is to try and break away from a character the world has created, and I think people want to meet Hannah Montana, and she's not Hannah Montana; she's Miley Cyrus, but she's still – she's very young still, she's only 20.
"I just think, I don't think it should have been as celebrated as it was, in my opinion."
To which Carr replied: "I see what she's trying to do – 'look at me, I'm a young woman, I'm sexual now', and there's ways of doing it isn't there?"
And Jessie agreed: Yeah I think it's too much. I do think it's too much. But I know, I've been there though I remember when Dude came out, everyone was like 'woah!', so I understand that sometimes you do things and you go 'I’ve done it now'.
"There's no way of testing in the public until you do it, whether you know if it's wrong or right, and sometimes you convince yourself that something's right and then you watch it back and you go 'really?'.
"But I just hope that people around her are guarding her in the right way, because, yeah."
But it wasn't all criticism, because Jessie added that she thought Miley's new song Wrecking Ball is great.
