Jessie J to 'British Cosmopolitan': I'm a 26-Year-Old Woman Who Has Relationships & Has Sex!
Here’s what the 26-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On finding love: “I’m still finding my feet in love. Maybe America is the place I’ll meet the man of my dreams? My mum and dad have been together 36 years and they’ve shown me what real love is like. When you have that to look up to, you know you have to get it right. I like a guy who can make me laugh. I think with Instagram and Twitter, romance has lost its way. It’s all, ‘Oh I’ve got this girl but I could have this one and I can contact her directly right this minute.’ I think if we lost technology for a year there would be more people getting married!”
On wanting kids: “I’m 26 and I want to have kids in the next four to eight years – obviously not right now. But I’m not 16; I’m a woman and I live a 26-year-old woman’s life: I have relationships and I have sex… and that’s OK… I’m growing up and I don’t want to obscure any parts of me or take them away.”
On her health in the spotlight: “Out of everything, hearing stories that aren’t true about myself and being ill are the hardest things I’ve had to deal with over the past few years. It never gets easier. When I was first in the public eye my heart condition and health problems were spoken about a lot. That hasn’t gone away just because I’ve had some success. I still go to hospital. There are times when I have palpitations and I have to get on with it. I’m not on medication anymore but I have to balance my lifestyle and my diet, and not push myself. When I don’t feel well I stop. You have to let the badness out like a bruise.”
The full interview appears in the November issue, which is on stands now.
