If Jessie J spent her Christmas Eve in the hospital, it was with her left arm in a cast that Lana Del Rey celebrated hers.
Jessie Ellen Cornish was born on March 27, 1988 in England. When she was only 11 years old, the famous producer Andrew Lloyd Webber spotted her and put her in the musical Whistle down the wind. At the age of 16, she took music lessons at the BRIT school and was in the same class as singers Leona Lewis and Adele. The young woman joined her first girls band before she had to put a stop to her career because of a stroke that occurred when she came of age. Jessie then took the nickname Jessie J and composed the song Big White Room, which tells the story of her journey through the disease.
She became a backup singer for Cyndi Lauper and wrote lyrics for Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Britney Spears before going solo in 2010. Her first single, Do it like a dude, refers to the singer-songwriter’s bisexuality. In 2012, she sang at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics and released her second album, Alive, the following year. Her opus Sweet Talking was released in October 2014 and the first single, Bang Bang, was an instant success.
On the private side, in December 2019, she separated from Channing Tatum, whom she met in November 2018.
