Jessie J admits she's received death threats

Jessie J, who wowed crowds at Glastonbury Festival over the weekend, has revealed that she's been victim to death threats. 

Speaking to Q magazine, the 'Do It Like A Dude' vocal superstar explained that it's not been plain sailing and not everyone has been supportive of her speedy rise to fame:

"I've had people say 'I wanna kill you and your family. Death threats. I've had people say I hope you get HIV and throat cancer at the same time."

She understands that negativity and criticism are part and parcel of being in the public eye, but added that it's something she will never get used to and will just have to learn to deflect or ignore the haters:

"They say I look like a drag queen. I think the world has become obsessed with hating things. But people who wanna spread bad energy, I ain't got time for them to be in my psyche."
