A new book has revealed that singer Jessie J is a lesbian who was forced to hide her sexuality to make her more 'trendy'.
The shocking new publication says that The Voice coach was told by record bosses that she would be more appealing to fans if she said that she was bisexual rather than gay. The unauthorised biography, written by Chloe Govan, adds that the pop star, who first realised she was gay at the age of 17, eventually went along with the plan but was 'incensed' by the decision.
In the book, entitled Jessie J: Who's Laughing Now, Govan writes that Jessie chose to say she was bisexual because she was scared of losing her record contract with Universal. Govan said: 'Jessie might have been with boys in the past - but she is 100 per cent gay. Jessie was openly lesbian and didn’t hide it. She was advised not to come out, though. Certain people thought being bi was trendy, exotic and a fashion statement. It would increase her allure.'
Jessie J's stint on The X Factor UK led to flirtatious tweets between herself and mentor Tulisa Contostavlos, and the pair were said to be meeting up to discuss a collaboration. We doubt that Jessie J would be any less appealing to anyone, regardless of her sexuality. What do you think?
