Singer Jessie J has undergone an operation and sends message from hospital telling fans not to worry
We’re used to seeing Jessie J looking fierce on stage while showcasing her flawless vocals. But her most recent post on Instagram was a far cry to the glam popstar that we’re used to seeing, as it showed the 27-year-old laid on a hospital bed.
Before you mind wanders to the deepest and darkest corners as to what’s wrong, Jessie assures us that she’s okay, but might just be a bit MIA on social media for a while as she recovers from a mystery operation with plenty of rest and pie and mash. That’s our girl!
‘I’m going to be offline for a few days and I wanted to show you why,’ Jessie said. ‘ I don’t often share personal stuff (especially about my health) anymore. I just get on with it secretly, but I wanted to share with you before someone else might and it gets twisted and exaggerated into something different or worse.
‘Just know I am ok as I say in the video on the right. I just wanted to explain to my fans why I may go AWOL for a minute.’
The singer hasn’t said what her operation was for, and won’t be doing so, and asked her followers to respect her privacy, captioning the pic: ‘I had an operation yesterday so need to rest | I won’t be saying what for so PLEASE don’t keep asking me or harassing my close ones on here or anywhere for information | Its personal and I know you can respect that.’
The former The Voice judge has suffers from a heart confition called Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which causes a fast and irregular heartbeat and shortness of breath. This can leave our Jessie feeling dizzy or faint, especially when she hits those infamous high notes of hers.
Jessie’s even revealed she may have to mime her impressive vocal range of three octaves in future performances, saying in 3AM that it might be the only way she can stay healthy.
‘I have prided myself in having got this far without having to lip-sync but if my career carries on moving at the pace that it is, I will have to lip-sync to be able to stay well.’
But the Essex girl assures us that she’s okay and that the operation didn’t have anything to do with her voice, saying all she needed was ‘Sleep, rest, maybe some pie and mash.’
‘Mostly focusing my mind on getting my body better and for the record it’s not my heart or my voice my heart and voice are FINE.’
And even while she’s going through all this, Jessie is still thinking of others – what a woman!
‘I want to take a moment to send a virtual hug and kiss out to anyone in pain or suffering at the moment. In hospital or at home. ‘
Knowing that she probably doesn’t look as polished at her usual self, she joked about wearing her night gown to The Voice live shows. With the half of the Insta-video of her in bed after the op and the other half showing her before swooshing her hair in slo-mo, she captioned it saying: ‘On fleek to on bleek real quick’
Someone get us that slogan onto a t-shirt, STAT! We can imagine how handy it’d be if we woke up horrifically hungover – not that that ever happens…
Even when she’s lying in a hospital bed, Jessie J can still have a laugh at herself. That’s why we love her! (Along with the catchy songs of course)
Get well soon Jessie J!
