Jessie J Says No to Yes Men

Saturday, April 21, 2012

JESSIE J doesn’t want to surround herself with yes men.

The singer admits she can get quite irritable but insists on having people in her inner circle that won’t let her get away with it.

“You live in a bubble when you are traveling, touring and in the studio or on stage,” she said. “You wake up and don’t know what country you are in and you have people around you saying: ‘You are amazing’ and ‘let me do this or that’ and you completely lose yourself.

“It is going to affect you, even if you don’t want it to. You have to be careful that you don’t surround yourself with yes men. I need people who say: ‘You are being an idiot today, shut up’.”

She admits that one of the worst times to catch her is when she hasn’t had a decent meal.

“When I am hungry you don’t want to mess with me,” she added.

“There are people I’m sure who have met me and said: ‘Oh God, she is awful!’ But we all have bad days and there have been times when I am tired and hungry and it’s like that.”
