AceShowbiz - Jessie J has some important messages for everyone. Feeling annoyed after being asked whether she's pregnant, the "Price Tag" hitmaker urged people to stop commenting on her body weight.
The 34-year-old penned on Instagram Story, "Stop commenting on people's weight, anyone. Just stop. Or telling someone they look pregnant for sure, or you look skinny, just anything, just stop." She then added in the Thursday, March 31 post, "I see it so much on socials and I know it happens in real life."
"I have gained 10 pounds in the past 6 months and I feel great. That's just under a stone to those who don't do pounds. It might stay or it might not or I might gain more, who cares?!" the English singer/songwriter added. "I don't care, as long as I feel good and I'm healthy."
Jessie went on to recall her recent encounter with someone who "literally just asked me if I was pregnant," saying, "You look pregnant." The question shocked her considering that she suffered a miscarriage last year.
"And they also knew of what I went through last year and told me their thoughts on that and how I should of handled it. So strange and damn bold I would never," she argued. "Just no It's a no. Not cool to just say or comment on anyone's body unless they / I tell you or ask your opinion. It's not one that's needed or helpful. Wild that some people don't know that phew."
The "Flashlight" songstress opened up about her pregnancy loss in November 2021. Sharing a photo of her holding up a positive pregnancy test on Instagram, she lamented, "Im still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok."
"Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying, 'seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant,' " she further explained. "By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…After going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat [broken heart emoji]."
"This morning. I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this. I may not. I actually don't know," she continued. "What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because Im avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me."
