Jessie J: “I Was So Nervous About ‘Do It Like A Dude’…”
Jessie J has recently spoken out about the way she makes her music and stated that she is very conscious when it comes to penning material. Speaking to The Daily Star, the UK R&B sensation says that she is very aware of the songs she makes and was even nervous about the reaction her ‘Do It Like A Dude’ smash would cause...
She said: "I’m aware of what I’m singing about all the time, which is why I was so nervous about ‘Do It Like A Dude’, that people were going to judge me for it, because it has elements of the dollar about it."
“Don’t get me wrong, I love basement music like ‘Pass Out’, but I eventually I thought: ‘If I can’t do a song like this now, when can I?’ I should have fun too."
Whilst her breakout hit is still early into its lifespan, Jessie J admits she can't imagine performing it much later on into her career.
"Can you imagine doing a song like that when I’m 40? Oh God! I knew it would shake up some controversy."
