She went on: "I have done 2 shows in 2 years and my soul needs it. Even more today. I know some people will be thinking she should just cancel it. But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self-love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way. I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that."

The singer bravely opened up

"I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did its best. I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer," she said.

Jessie continued, explaining that she decided to have a baby on her own "Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again."

She finished the post by writing: "I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don’t… It’s the loneliest feeling in the world. So I will see you tonight LA. I may crack less jokes but my heart will be in the room."
