Jessie J: I love being in love

Jessie J wants to be a "worldwide superstar and a mum and a wife".

Jessie J tries to fall in love as much as possible.

Earlier this week the 26-year-old singer confirmed she is dating R&B star Luke James, using social media to post a picture of them together.

In a new interview, seemingly conducted before she and Luke got together, Jessie chatted about what romance means to her.

“I feel like I’m at a point where I don’t want to just be with someone for the sake of it. Any guy I meet now, I’m like, ‘Are you a husband? Are you a dad?’ I want to be a worldwide superstar and a mum and a wife,” she told British magazine InStyle. “[A wife] because I’ve seen how much joy it’s given my mum. I try to fall in love as much as I can. Everyone that I’m dating, that I’m sleeping with… I love the feeling of being in love.”

When she burst on to the scene with her debut album Who You Are in 2011, Jessie spoke about dating men and women. Earlier this year she got into hot water when she called her bisexuality a “phase”, but has no regrets about her comments.

“I am so for love who you want to love. I just got to a point where… I felt like it was affecting my life and my career, being branded as something I’ve never said that I was. I don’t want to be labelled, and that’s it, really. I’ve always apologised if I’ve offended anyone, too; I never meant to,” she said.

Jessie is proud to be known for her strong opinions and has vowed to remain open and honest. That includes body confidence issues, with the singer previously slamming publications for altering her appearance with Photoshop.

It’s something that really rankles with her, as she doesn’t feel she can be honest if her image is constantly being doctored.

“There are so many people that I know who have conformed through plastic surgery. It’s depressing. After all, this is how God made me. And when I have kids, if I’m like, ‘Be confident, go on,’ if they then say, ‘But mummy, you’ve got a boob job,’ what would I say?” she queried.
