Jessie J on The Voice diva rumours: 'I asked for a candle and a lava lamp'

Songstress Jessie J has hit back at the rumours suggesting she has been showcasing diva-like behaviour on The Voice UK by revealing her backstage requests.

In a new interview with Grazia magazine, the 'Price Tag' star explained that she only asked for two items and both were incredibly low key so it's unfair for the press to make up exaggerated stories:

"There isn’t anything flash in my dressing room. No champagne. No yoga mats or anything. That was meant to be one of my diva demands. I did ask for a scented candle. I don’t think it’s too much to ask for a nice, relaxing smell in the room. I also asked for a lava lamp."

“When I was a kid, they used to have a room at Great Ormond Street Hospital where you’d go and chill out. It was full of lava lamps and water lamps and since then it’s always been a way to help me wind down. I never got one, and that’s OK."

Despite opening up about the things she asked for as a vocal coach on the popular talent show, Jessie J also questioned the limits of what's acceptable and what should be considered as too much where requests are concerned, and added:

“But is there anything wrong with asking for what you know is good for you? Does that make you a diva, a pain? Or does it make you someone who knows what they want?”
