Childhood: Jessie J started acting as a child and had a role in the West End production of Whistle Down the Wind. After leaving Mayfield High School, she started studying at the BRIT school and joined a girl group when she was 17 years old. Jessie J then signed to Gut Records, home to Tom Jones and Jimmy Sommerville, but the label went bust before releasing any of her music.
Later on in her teens, Jessie J suffered from heart trouble and also experienced a minor stroke.

Jessie J also wrote tracks for Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera and Rihanna's ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, with whom she also toured.
Jessie J's single 'Do It Like a Dude' was released in the UK in November 2010. The track received a great deal of airplay on BBC Radio 1. Jessie J stated that she had originally written the song for Rihanna but eventually decided to record the song herself. The single debuted at number 25 on the UK Singles Chart.
Jessie J then earned herself a slot on Later Live With Jools Holland, performing an acoustic version of her song 'Price Tag'. It was announced that he track was due to be released as a single in March 2011, with the rapper B.o.B. performing additional vocal duties. This would be followed by an album entitled Who You Are. She also built up a loyal following by posting videos of herself performing on YouTube, including a cover of 'I Have Nothing', originally made famous by Whitney Houston.

That same month, it was also announced that Jessie J had won the Critics Choice award at the 2011 BRIT Awards Ceremony.

The show could raise her profile immensely.
Jessie J has given her music career the boost it truly needed by becoming the winner of the Chinese singing competition 'Singer 2018'. Her earnings are expected to skyrocket with the win, which is no doubt what she needs after a slow spiral into obscurity in the west.

It's China's answer to 'The Voice'; a show the 30-year-old is all too familiar with having judged on seasons 1 and 2 of the UK show and seasons 4 and 5 of the Australia version. She was an obvious winner, given that few have ever been able to match the vocal prowess of Jessie J.

Jessie J didn't want to get the role in 'Ice Age: Collision Course' because of her music career.
The 28-year-old singer songwriter - who is set to star in the children's animated film as ground sloth Brooke - has admitted she didn't want to get the part as the love interest of franchise regular Sid (John Leguizamo) because of her successful music career but because she truly ''deserves it''.
During an interview on US TV show 'Live With Kelly', the 'Price Tag' hitmaker said: ''I did an hour's audition and tried to find a voice they liked. I didn't want to get it because of the music I've done. I want to get it because I deserve it.''
Reportedly, she had begun to doubt James' commitment to their relationship, suspecting that he was only dating her to raise his own profile.
Jessie J has split from her boyfriend of almost a year, R&B singer Luke James, reportedly because he was only dating her in order to get himself greater exposure in the music industry.
An unnamed source told The Sun on Thursday (October 15th) that “Jessie fell hard for Luke, but over the summer she started having doubts,” suspecting that he was only going out with her in the hope of “raising his profile in the music industry.”

Tension had been simmering between the two judges ever since the fourth series launched at the end of June.
‘Australia’s sweetheart’ Delta Goodrem has stormed off the set of the country’s version of reality singing show ‘The Voice’, after becoming frustrated and angry with her fellow judge Jessie J’s criticisms of the program’s contestants.
Goodrem, 30, was incensed with British pop star Jessie’s negative comments about contestant Tamara Callaghan and her performance of Marilyn Monroe’s song ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’. Jessie was giving her some tips on how she should have sung it, when Goodrem ripped off her microphone and earpiece and walked off the set, being heard to say “I’m over this s***, I give up.”

The singer has had to cancel shows after undergoing surgery earlier in the week.

The 'Who's Laughing Now' singer underwent surgery earlier this week, the nature of which has not been divulged, and posted a bedside recovery photo on social media.
British pop star Jessie J is taking some off to recuperate after having surgery for an undisclosed illness, after sharing a video of herself on social media lying in bed in hospital afterwards.
The 27 year old singer posted a short video on Instagram on Tuesday (June 23rd), a before and after shot of the operation. “I don't often share personal stuff (especially about my health) any more, I just get on with it,” she wrote. “But I wanted to share with you before someone else might and it gets twisted and exaggerated into something different or worse.”

After the success of the first 'Pitch Perfect' and, more specifically, the 'Cup' song, the soundtrack for the sequel has a lot to live up to. However, there is a thing as trying to be too clever and here is a perfect example.
By trying to cram even more songs into each a cappella mash-up, some tracks just don't work without the visual aid of the movie and it becomes a race to recognize just what has been used. Two/three lines and it is on to the next song. 'Riff Off' starts off enjoyable, with a cover of 'Thong Song', but then goes through a circle of booty-complimenting tracks at a dizzying speed where it confuses and loses itself. A better example of a mash-up would be The Barden Bella's 'World Championship Finale' as you can clearly hear each tune used throughout.
The song that leads the entire soundtrack - also the lead single - is Jessie J's 'Flashlight' written by Sam Smith and Sia. By far the most memorable, it is a highlight to the album and is what will keep people coming back to listen to it. An inspirational ballad, it is by far one of Jessie J's best singles, but as the success of Anna Kendrick and 'Cups' showed, a big star isn't always needed to get radio play time. There is also a surprise performance from Snoop Dogg and Anna Kendrick, which is a nice way to break up the a cappella sound of the album. The other original track is 'Crazy Youngsters' performed by Ester Dean, which adds a modern and more 'pop' sound to the soundtrack. These 3 tracks are undeniably stand-out numbers in an otherwise very predictable album.
This week, the British singer upset her fanbase by unfollowing every single one of the 885 accounts to which she had subscribed.
Jessie J has angered her loyal fans by unfollowing every single one of them on Twitter – and then being rude about it afterwards.
According to Reuters, at the start of the week (beginning April 27th) the former judge on 'The Voice' was following 885 people on the microblogging site, but that numbers started to steadily go downwards. By Thursday morning, her account read ‘@JessieJ isn’t following anyone yet’. Suffice to say, her fans were not best pleased.
