Jessie J’s girl-power album

Jessie J has chatted about her new record, and also voiced her opinions on the celebrity photo hacking scandal.

Jessie J’s new album is centred on all things womanly.

The British singer is gearing up for the release of her third record Sweet Talker next month, and warns fans it’s going to be a good one.

Far from simply churning out catchy pop tracks, Jessie has focused her musical abilities on conveying the highs and lows ladies have to endure when looking for love.

“Being confident as a woman, going through a break-up, falling in love, being sad, being angry. All of those things that you go through as a woman are on the album,” Jessie explained to British newspaper Metro.

“The break-up song is not teary. It’s everything I was feeling at the time. You know; there’s two kinds of anger. A soft one where you want someone to shout at you and they don’t and instead they go, ‘No, it’s fine. You can leave.’ And you’re like, ‘Say something else!’ It’s that kind of heartbreak.”

Jessie, 26, has dated both men and women in the past, and admits anyone who wants to get serious with her needs to realise she won’t be at the beck and call of a lover.

“Anyone dating a woman who is very independent and very busy just has to really understand that she is busy and independent,” she said.

Jessie has also been commenting on the recent celebrity scandal, involving hacked private photos of stars making their way on to the web.

A-listers including Jennifer Lawrence, Gabrielle Union and Amber Heard have all fallen foul to the hacker, and have seen intimate shots of them splashed across the internet. But Jessie reasons it’s not totally unbelievable this has happened.

“I can’t wait for mine to come out," Jessie joked to British newspaper Daily Star. “There’s a bad girl in every good girl.

“I’m human and every single woman in this industry is in a long distance relationship, so sometimes you gotta throw things down to keep your man.

“At the end of the day, yes, it’s awful and disgusting that it happens, but really and truly, I think if you are famous you are going to have to expect those things will happen.”
