Jessie J announced last year that she’d shave her hair off for charity ‘Comic Relief‘ in 2013, and now that the date in question is coming up, she’s decided to go one step further by getting it inked permanently as a memento!
She’s told ‘The Daily Star‘: “I want something like a heart, so it will remind me that I did it for charity. My hairdresser and I are shaving it off at the moment and I’m excited. But I think we should get one of the ‘One Direction‘ boys to do it instead. That might be a fantasy for some people!”
Jessie J sent the most indirect tweet ever the other day when she criticised Rihanna over her well-publicized weed habit. Rihanna, who is also a regular ‘Instagram‘ uploader, came under fire after Jessie decided that enough was enough, and that she had to comment on the drug user’s vanity:
“I’m bored… Maybe I should get naked and smoke and take pictures of myself and post them on ‘Instagram‘? Or NOT… *rolls eyes* Hahaha my TL is hilarious. My last tweet about instagram sadly wasn’t an indirect at anyone in particular. There is definitely more than 1 person posting those kind of pictures. Hence my tweet. I’m going to be honest. My tweet about ‘Instagram‘ was NOT aimed at anyone inparticular. But I will openly say the amount of pictures including men and woman nude and girls and guys promoting smoking drugs on the internet these days is a lot. Feels like the boundries are disappearing. Its become fashionable and in my opinion its too much. Call me what you want but that’s MY opinion and I’m intitled to one.”
Jessie J has been forced to postpone her February 2013 tour until next October due to growing concerns that her sophomore album would not be completed in time.
She tweeted an explanation and apology to her fans: “I could do my UK tour in Feb but my album will not be out before hand so if I did new songs you wouldn’t know them… I have personally moved it back to make sure you ALL get a BIGGER and BETTER show and will know the music I’m performing. My album is not finished and I am giving myself more time to finish it. I understand some of you are disappointed as am I. Music and art cannot be rushed. I promise It will be worth the wait. Thank you for supporting me.”
Jessie J decided back in January that she was going to shave her full head of hair to raise money for charity after meeting a number of children suffering from serious illnesses. And true to her word, she had made plans to go in for the chop in March 2013.
The brave singer tweeted: “A year ago I said I’m gonna shave my head for charity. I have spent a long time making sure that when I do shave my head I raise as much money as possible for charity. I have been waiting for the perfect time and the right charity. But also a charity that can get my amazing fans involved too. I am SO excited and honoured to be able to finally officially announce I will be shaving my head LIVE for you ALL to watch in March 2013 for @rednoseday.”
Jessie J had a bit of an embarrassing technical glitch Saturday night during a live studio performance. 15 minutes into the evening’s broadcast of ‘The Voice‘, she began to sing with the rest of the contestants in her category, only to realise that her microphone wasn’t working. The singer, who dressed in a stripped monochrome top and black flared trousers with a ‘Minnie Mouse‘ style hairdo, alerted the audience and production staff that her mic wasn’t working.
She spoke directly to the camera, saying: “Sorry guys, the mic isn’t working, this is live telly. I can’t hear anything.” Her contestant Cassisus Henry put an arm around her, and host Holly Willoughby recovered the situation. Once sorted, the group took the stage to complete their performance.
And Jessie‘s got herself in hot water with the show’s producers and fellow judges after she announced her 2 finalists hours before the results show on Twitter. The picture that she posted showed her with Vince Kidd and Becky Hill, and had the caption “team Jessie going in today.”
Jessie J has had to increase her own security after a crazy fan got hold of her phone number and started bombarding the singer with texts. The person in question, who’s name is unknown to the press, also deliberately broke her own leg in order to be just like her idol. The teenager copied her injury after Jessie‘s fall onstage at last year’s ‘Capital FM‘ Summertime Ball, and even texted her a picture of the injured limb. One of the many messages read: “I will do anything to be just like you.”
Someone close to Jessie told ‘The Sun‘: “She’s horrified this happened. Jessie‘s a really, really sensitive and kind girl who loves keeping in touch with her fans. But this incident was just too much for her and she ended up getting really frightened and upset. She was sad that a fan hurt herself to look like her — but she was also scared for her own safety. Now Jessie‘s on ‘The Voice‘ and getting bigger and bigger, she knows it is time to review security and the risks to her. She loves her fans but these things are unavoidable in this day and age. It happens to all pop stars as they become bigger. It’s one of the downfalls of fame. Jessie would prefer it wasn’t this way.”
She hasn’t commented about the fan directly on Twitter, but did post a slightly cryptic message earlier: “People watching my every move…”
