Jessie J: 'I want to be taken seriously'

"Here it seems that all people want to know is what I've had for breakfast and who I'm in a relationship with."

The former The Voice UK judge added that she feels she's revealed too much about her personal life and her sexuality to the press.

Jessie J says her bisexuality was 'a phase' "Sometimes I don't know when to stop," she said. "Sometimes I should just say nothing, but I can't help myself and make some big statement when saying nothing would be much more appropriate."

In the interview the 26-year-old also admitted she thinks people have the wrong impression of her character.

Jessie J confesses: 'I pretend sometimes that I am okay when I'm not'

"People expect me to be really aggressive," she said. "And they're surprised that I can be vulnerable or feel fragile. I'm probably the least aggressive person you could meet. I'm direct yes, honest yes, but I'm not going to punch you. I am actually... a really sweet girl."
