Jessie J wants to be a 'big sister' to fans

Jessie J says she hopes to act as a "big sister" figure to fans in need.

The singer opened to BBC Radio 1 about how she wants to music as a way of helping people through tough times.

In an interview aired on Tuesday (January 20), the Brit said that she had health and appearance issues as a child.

This encouraged her to use music in a way to inspire others around her.

Jessie J said: "I could sing the standard stuff which will be played on the radio and everyone will love," she explains.

"Or I can tap into something that people need, rather than want, and that's what my first album was about.

"I almost feel like I want to be a big sister to my fans that need one. I can put out music that I think will help them through some stuff."
