Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1When I look back, I can see why people thought I was aggressive. My first single, 'Do It Like A Dude,' resulted in a lot of misconceptions about me. I'm confident - but I'm not arrogant.
2I started to look like a cartoon character with the fringe and the catsuits. Yes, I want to change and mix it up. I want to change my hair, change my style. I want to be allowed to grow.
3I am a very honest person, and I can only say there are moments in my life where I really did think I was being me in the sense of my morals and beliefs and the way I acted. But when I look back at certain things that I wore and my hair and make-up, I was like, 'Whoa! That wasn't me!' But I didn't know it back then.
4If I did meet somebody, I would only ever make room for someone that loved me how I deserved to be loved. Until then... I've got my shoes, I've got my album, my dog.
5I have calmed down my look. Is it really necessary to wear all that jewelry and makeup at 7 A.M.? When you're tired, you start to over-compensate by wearing too much bling.
6There are a lot of people holding on to the old Jessie J - whatever that means - but I think there's a lot more people realizing what I'm about. I think people like it.
7I think everybody has a moment in their career where you have to test whether it was right or wrong. We've all been there. I've looked back at performances of my own, where only you know if it is something you want to repeat. As long as you know when it's not right that you don't repeat it all the time.
8I feel like a lot of the industry and media portray this image of what beautiful is, or how you should dress, or how you should look, and I don't think it's healthy.
9Whoopie doo guys, yes, I've dated girls and I've dated boys - get over it.
10I'm not a natural runner. I'm friends with Ellie Goulding, and she'll be like, 'I've just done a 10K run' and I'm like: 'Why would you do that? How do you just do that?' But I will do that. I will do it.
11I know I've got the right friends because they understand when they haven't seen me for three months and then when I do see them, it's exactly as it was before.
12The only thing I want to be defined by is my music and personality.
13I'd hate it if everyone in the world liked me, my music and what I wore. It'd make it boring, and I wouldn't have anything to work towards. It's not to everyone's taste, but I can only be me.
14My attitude goes back to my childhood. I used to audition for theatrical roles, and you can't stand out in a room full of ambitious eight-year-old girls by acting the wallflower. I realised then that I couldn't do things half-heartedly.
15I always wanted to be an artist; being a songwriter for myself was always a must but being a songwriter for others has been a bonus.
16I'm so hard on myself that when I'm in the studio, I'll write 10 songs and only use one. So those nine songs that are left over, I always think, 'Where could these go? Who could they be for?'
17As an artist, I try and be controversial, and I have been a bit offensive at times. I have a view on the burka, and I'm sure a few of the Muslim girls and their families would have a view of me on stage in next to nothing!
18I like my life to be pure and clean and organised, and I like to have had eight hours' sleep a night. I honestly don't think I'd be as successful if I was a party animal. Because I don't think my personality would be as focused and open as it is.
19The best gift a fan could give me is undeniable support.
20When I turned 25, something changed in me. I see children in my future 100%. Soon. I started thinking I want my kids to look back and say, 'Wasn't Mummy amazing?' I've really started thinking about what I'm leaving for them.
21Some of the stage outfits I've got are ridiculous. I'll lay out clothes to pack, and it'll look like Polly Pocket clothing - because it's all stretchy, it's tiny. I don't need a case when I tour; I can fit it all in my handbag.
22If I'm on a bus and someone makes my blood boil, I'll pocket those emotions and put them in a song.
23I'd love to have a fashion range; I've been dressed by the amazing Vivienne Westwood, and fashion is something I'm a huge fan of.
24I'm not afraid to have no make-up on and no hair. I just want to be stripped back.
25Songs lay a foundation of who I am going to be forever.
26I won't lie - when you're first bringing out music and you want people to notice, you probably overdo it, especially as a girl.
27I've been in dance schools since I was four. I went to the Brit school. I did adverts and plays.
28I do my own make-up a lot of the time, and I'm very involved in what I wear.
29I'm someone who'd never base how happy I am on how much money I have, or how good a restaurant is because of how posh it is.
30I'm glad I've had to struggle. It's made me the artist I am now.
31I see my music as Emotional Therapeutic Pop music that bleeds into loads of different genres.
32You know, as a woman, it is tough to get to the top - like to get to that respected level in this industry - in any industry, I think.
33The way I look at it, a footballer wouldn't play in flip-flops or dip their feet in acid and then expect to get to David Beckham's level. My voice is my living, so I'll be looking after it.
34I'm glad I was faced with different cultures when I was growing up because I wasn't fazed by it. It has been a huge benefit to me; I feel comfortable wherever I go.
35It's weird because when you initially write a song, you write it with no understanding that the world is maybe going to hear it one day. So when you go into the studio, you don't see the hundreds of people at a gig or the viewers on TV, you just write a song without any inhibitions or boundaries.
36Look after yourself; remember that you only consist of your being, so make the best of what you have and look after it. Put good things into your body; eat well.
37I'm so happy people are seeing the eclectic side of me. I'm really honored to be able to push my voice into different sounds. Otherwise it all gets a bit samey same.
38I always imagine the world and myself above it and how minute one negative person's voice is in comparison to the amount of people that are in the world.
39During my stage shows, I am so energetic. It's constant! I just don't stand still. I actually got given a mic stand from my team to say 'Just calm down. Stand still for at least two songs.' But now I just pick it up and walk around with it.
40I had knockback after knockback before I got anywhere. After I got my first record deal I thought that was it, then Gut Records went into liquidation. I was 20. I had no idea what that meant. I had a few days to get myself out of that contract or my work would be owned by someone else.
41I'm not a model, I'm an artist. In one of my videos, I'm doing this shot of me with no make-up on where I've just woken up, and I don't think a lot of people would be comfortable enough to do that. But that's the way I look. This is who I am. Let's enjoy it. Let's just live life to the full while we're all here.
42I had an amazing childhood and always loved to sing and dance, but there were moments where I had ups and downs with my health that often tested me as it does many people. I've never hidden the fact that my health was sometimes not on my side, but I've never let it define me or deter me from my dreams.
43I like stripper shoes. I like being tall because I'm claustrophobic.
44And that's the kind of thing people think, you know, that if you sign up to be a singer-songwriter you know how to deal with people setting up hate websites, or people being obsessed with you and crying when you touch them, but you don't, and you just have to deal with.
45I can play the air guitar really, really well.
46My style is constantly evolving. Style has been something that I think has been the hardest thing for me to come to terms with.
47But I love singing live. Nothing beats the feeling of going out on stage and going, 'I can really sing.'
48I love getting dressed up, but I want to be remembered for my singing.
49I was obsessed with the Spice Girls! I always wanted to be Sporty. Or Posh, but I wasn't pretty enough.
50I never stop working when I'm on stage, and that's my fitness.
51I have always been the first on the dance floor. Before fame, people thought it made me a good laugh; now, people point and call me an attention seeker! I'm very aware of the way people can view me, but I'm very aware that I have to just enjoy my life.
52I think if I wasn't a singer I'd probably do make-up and beauty and hair and something creative like styling; I really enjoy it.
53I wasn't always someone who was talented. It was more that I was loud and loved a challenge.
54I'm the most un-diva-ish person you'll meet. I'm never rude to people and I am always on time.
55When I was nine, I was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and was prescribed beta blockers, which had the side effect of turning my skin green. Looking like Shrek's little sister at school wasn't the easiest thing.
56I've grown up a lot, and I've realized that what I need to make myself happy is the people around you.
57I'm an artist, but I'm also a businesswoman, and sometimes you have to play hard.
58I think confidence is the sexiest thing to have.
59I'm not afraid to say I'm very comfortable with who I am and I love who I love.
60And I definitely do that very British thing of, take things with a pinch of salt, stiff upper lip, you know what I mean?
61My style is ghetto chic. I love tacky jewelry, mega heels, high-waisted shorts, catsuits.
62I'm not really the party person. I don't 'become myself' once I'm drunk. I don't use alcohol to be happy.
63'Just Do It' is exactly what you need to hear when you're in a moment of doubt. When you're struggling, especially with sport... just do it. Stop talking about it, stop complaining about the cellulite, or that you're not able to run fast enough for the bus... just do it.
64It's really important to me that my niece and nephews can come and see my show, as can my grandad and nan. I love spending time with my family, and music has always bonded us.
65I love cleaning, weird but true. It really relaxes me.
66I might put a nicer pair of heels on and a cooler outfit, but I'm still that naughty girl who likes a slice of cheesecake on my day off.
67I think the best way to have confidence is not to allow everyone else's insecurities to be your own.
68Do what makes you feel good. Remind yourself of what you're good at and make sure you do that.
69I am a dork in disguise; I love doing stupid stuff.
70The message I want to give my fans is, always have a way to pull yourself out of the dark place. Don't sit and cry about it. Have your moment, and then get over it.
71When I was 10 or 11 people started saying there was something special about my voice. But when I was 15 or 16 is when I really thought my hobby could become my career.
72I also surround myself with people who make me laugh. If I'm not laughing, it upsets my day.
73I used to live in a gap jumper, tracksuit bottoms and a fake flower in my hair. Shocking.
74Sexuality shouldn't define anyone. It doesn't define me. Love should be at the core of what you do.
75You should never, ever apologize for anything that makes you happy.
76Sometimes you have to be a diva. All the artists I admire from Madonna to Whitney to Mariah have all been called divas. If you are strong, if you have vision, if you are an artist, you have to do what you believe in. And if you get called a diva for it, then so what.
77I have become a bit obsessed with eyebrows. I used to never have any, and then I realised big eyebrows are good, and now I'm an eyebrow fiend. Everyone comes to me to get their eyebrows done.
78I think being nice and being safe is unfair to yourself when you have big dreams as a woman. I think you have to prepare yourself that not everyone in this world has the same personality... The one thing I've chosen to be great at in my life is singing - so why not be proud that I'm great at it?
79I remember while I was at school some of my Muslim friends talked about a handful of people spoiling things in every culture. Hatred or hurt or pain isn't specific to a religion. I think it's a matter of acceptance. The one thing the world has to accept is everybody is different. What is normal to us is different and unusual to somebody else.
80I want young people to know that they can belong - whatever your culture, your religion, your sexuality - that you can live life how you want to live it and feel comfortable how you are.
81I want everybody to think I'm a hard worker as an aunt, a sister, a friend, a daughter, a niece, everything. I want to be great at every role, because every role in my life is as important as being Jessie J.
82Children used to get bullied at school. Now they go home, and that's where the problem starts - because they sit on their phones all night, thinking about who's 'liked' a photo of them, who hates them, who loves them. They don't know what's real and what's not, editing their lives constantly to fit other people's views.
83[on the perfume Fantasy by Britney Spears] I'm obsessed with Britney's Fantasy perfume. I bought it when I was writing the album so now I always wear it for good luck before every show. The bottles are so small and I use so much I'm always buying it.
