Jessie J on youth: 'I was uncomfortable in my skin'
Jessie J has admitted that she felt like an outcast as a child.
The singer told BBC Radio 1 in a special programme aired on Tuesday (January 20) that she found it difficult to fit in because of her appearance.
The 26-year-old said: "I had really big teeth, a big fringe. I was just uncomfortable in my skin. I wasn't the pretty kid, I was the awkward one that didn't know who I fitted in with.
"The only place where I could escape was my dreams. I would enjoy going to sleep because I could dream about something that I wasn't living.
"I remember when I first became established and I received Facebook messages from girls who used to throw stones at my head as I walked home from school. It just made me go, 'Who's laughing now?'.
"It sparked a real emotion that I know hundreds of thousands of millions of children around the world are going through."
