And we're not just talking about the singer's bright makeup here.关于她的头发,女孩有很多话要说(看,no wig!),她的姐妹们,and her love life.Listen in,then see check out the pics from Jessie J's photo-shoot.

很难相信仅仅几年前,the world hadn't yet heard ofJessie J.The 24-year-old British singer-songwriter (born Jessica Cornish—theJis just for fun) released her debut album,你是谁,in 2011,but chart toppers like "Domino" and "Price Tag" quickly made her hummable.She famously toughed out the Video Music Awards with a broken foot,has hit TV as a judge onThe Voice UK,and has a new album due this summer.Here,the round-the-clock-busy singer models our favorite juicy summer makeup and tells us about who's behind that pretty face.

GLAMOUR:You must have a great time being creative with your look.Is it fun to get ready for big events?

JESSIE J:Theoutcomeis fun.这个过程并不总是那么有趣,depending if my eyelashes want to stick or not.I love looking completely different and that my fans won't always know what I'm going to do.

GLAMOUR:You wear a lot of wigs,正确的?

JJ:It's so tough to explain to people.When you have half an hour to be ready at four o'clock in the morning,you don't have time to get up and glue in extensions or blow-dry your hair.做我头发的理发师说,"You,my darling,have something that we call successful' hair," which is basically battered hair that's split and falling out in the back because you've had to blow-dry it every day.I don't want my hair falling out,so I wear wigs!

GLAMOUR:How do you stay healthy?

JJ:I never complain that I'm tired,因为我知道只要我睡了九个小时,I'm cool.That's not ever that far away.关于饮食,this year I want to gain weight,所以我尽量经常吃。Last year there were days where my team and I would be so busy,我们吃不到像样的饭。

GLAMOUR:你在18岁中风。Does that affect the way you take care of yourself today?

JJ:我的健康没有人们想象的那么糟。I have an irregular heartbeat sometimes when I'm tired;things that may not bother other people affect me.It's a stress thing.I try not to let things get to me as much as I did when I was younger.Last night,after the Brit Awards,这是我第二天上班第一次出去。你需要在庆祝活动的时候做出选择,让它与众不同,而不是每天晚上出去,让自己筋疲力尽。

__GLAMOUR:__So you're not much of a party animal,huh?

JJ:I'm not really the party person.I don't "become myself" once I'm drunk.I don't use alcohol to be happy.I'm young,喝一杯就足够了。My [calendar] is just unreal at the moment.我没有时间累!

GLAMOUR:你小时候这么自信吗?or was there a turning point?

JJ:You know what it is?I have such an amazing mom and dad who have been married for 32 years,我的姐妹们总是让我觉得我很了不起。No one ever tried to suppress who I wanted to be.I never got embarrassed.Even last night,at the after-party,me and my dad were up dancing when no one else was.我认为拥有自信的最好方法是不要让别人的不安全感成为你自己的。


GLAMOUR:How did you get into music?

JJ:I wasn't always someone who was talented.It was more that I was loud and loved a challenge.从很小的时候我就知道我想成为世界上的一员。When I was 13,I sat with my mom and dad and went,"I think I want to do this properly.What can I do?" I went to the Brit School to do musical theater or be a musician.Then I started writing songs,and everything changed for me.I wanted to tell the world what I think and feel.

GLAMOUR:You've been very open about your sexuality.

JJ:For me,I want it to be less about sexuality and more about being comfortable in who you fall in love with.如果我遇到了喜欢的人,I don't care if they're a boy or a girl.你不应该,为任何能让你快乐的事道歉。我爸爸妈妈对这件事总是那么冷淡;they were just like,"You're not harming anyone.Enjoy your life."


JJ:The frustrating thing is that if I was with a guy right now,I'd be [considered] straight.但如果我和一个女孩在一起,I'd be "gay." When I was with my ex-girlfriend,I used to take her around and say,"This is my girlfriend." People would be comfortable with it becauseIwas.That's what annoys me about the media.I've never tried to make [my sexuality] something that's going to put me in newspapers or magazines.I'm never,ever going to let it be something that sells my music.Sexuality shouldn't define you.它应该是你的一部分。我现在单身,我很高兴,也很了解自己。Music is the love of my life right now.
