Jessie J Says Writing Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the USA' Paid Her Bills for 3 Years!

Jessie J is opening up about writing Miley Cyrus‘ classic 2009 hit “Party In The USA” and how the song paid her bills for many years!

“You’ve got to write songs, that’s where the money is, being an artist. ‘Party In The USA’ paid my rent for, like, three years,” the 26-year-old entertainer told Glamour mag. “Actually it was way longer than that. That’s where I get most of my money. I write songs. I’m a singer. I love endorsements and stuff, but that’s all added on.”

“All women are saying, singing and speaking about the same thing, but in their own way – love, heartbreak, reassurance, sexiness, belief, how we look, how we feel. We’re all singing about it and doing it,” Jessie J added.

    People didn’t actually think Miley wrote “Party in the USA” did they?
    Anyways, what Jessie J is saying is 100% true. If you want to be paid big money in the music industry, songwriting is where it’s at. Ya know, assuming the person is good at writing songs.
