Jessie J should be celebrated for being confident — and not called delusional
Jessie J's interview with Women's Health UK has some scratching their heads.
On the tail end of what she calls an extreme year, Jessie J compares herself to some of the great artists of our time. "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… I want to be up there with the Céline Dions, Whitneys, Beyoncés, and Arethas… I go hard because I hope and pray that one day people look back and go, ‘She could really f***ing sing.'"
But in an era when so many celebs are conforming to the norm, doubting themselves or apologizing left and right (we see you, Bieber) one thing is for sure — she's confident that she's on her way to the top.
She shares how much fame has boxed in her personality, saying, "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 completely being transparent.” Thankfully, she still has enough Jessie J in her to celebrate her success.
