Jessie J reveals she’s gained 10 pounds in the last six months and is feeling “great”, but insensitive followers were quick to ask if she was pregnant
Jessie J has hit out at fans who commented on her weight – and asked if she was pregnant – after suffering a miscarriage.
The 34-year-old Pricetag singer opened up about her devastating miscarriage earlier this year, revealing that it was the “saddest and loneliest time of her life”.
And now she’s taken to Instagram to attack insensitive followers who comment on her body after sharing a pic of her too-tight jeans.
“Stop commenting on people’s weight. Everyone. Just stop. Or tell someone they definitely look pregnant,” she said.
“Or you look thin. Just everything. Just stop. I see it so often on social media and I know it happens in real life.
“I’ve gained 10 pounds in the last 6 months and I feel great. That’s just under a rock for those not gaining pounds.
“It could stay or not or I could win more. Who cares?! I don’t care as long as I feel good and I’m healthy.”
Jessie explained that she was upset after someone asked her if she was pregnant after gaining weight.
“Someone literally just asked me if I was pregnant, ‘You look pregnant,’ and they also know what I went through last year and gave me their thoughts on it and how I should have dealt with it,” she said .
“So weird and damn bold. I would never do that. Just no. It’s a no. Not cool to just say or comment on anyone’s body.
Jessie suffered a miscarriage in November and later said she plans to become a mother in the next two years “by whatever means possible”.
Jessie J returned to the UK stage for an intimate acoustic session in January, speaking publicly and in heartbreaking detail for the first time since her ordeal.
She opened up to her fans on stage at Lafayette in central London, saying: “So I was pregnant but not anymore.
“I’m probably in the happiest place I’ve ever been, believe it or not. My perspective on life has completely changed.”
Jessie J then shared a very poignant and moving moment with the audience, opening up and explaining: “The day it happened, a man came up to me in the street.
“I was alone and crying. He said, ‘I don’t know you and I don’t know what’s happening to you right now, but I know you should share it with other people.’
“That’s why I do what I do. So for anyone who has been through this, or close to anyone who has, I am so sorry. There’s no other way to explain it than the saddest, loneliest thing.”
Speaking on the intimate show, Jessie said: “Nobody talks about it enough. What we are talking about is not what is really happening.
“I’m grateful to have been raised by two incredible people who taught me to find bliss in pain. I’m grateful for the perspective I have. We just have to live everyday and live harder.”
The hitmaker then detailed how one of her sisters flew to America to help her cope with the heartbreaking miscarriage.
She said on the show: “She was with me every day when it happened. She flew to LA and I was so high on painkillers. She dropped everything and was there.”
Giving her fans a glimmer of hope for new music and material, Jessie spoke about her health and plans to release her sixth album soon.
“The album’s been done for a year,” she revealed to the delight of her fans, before adding, “I just need my throat and myself and my body and my life to fix myself and look sharp.”
Her sixth studio album will feature her latest track, “Complicated,” which names her ex Channing Tatum and offers an insight into her life and career.
