Jessie J Facebook Live Event

Jessie J has had a busy week. She released her second studio album ‘Alive’, she performed at the iTunes Festival and it was also revealed that her album was in the running to be Number 1 this Sunday.

Earlier today (26th of September) the star also performed at the first Facebook UK Live event and spoke following her performance of ‘It’s My Party’ and said that it was an honour to be involved.

Previous Facebook Live events have seen the likes of Rihanna and Madonna perform so Jessie J was clearly overwhelmed following her performance which is fairly unique.

Jessie J spoke from Facebook HQ in the UK and spoke about following in the footsteps of her fellow performers and how special it felt to be the first person in the UK to do it:

“It’s crazy to think that I’m following in the footsteps of Madonna and Rihanna by taking part in a Facebook Live event.”

She continued “And to think that I am the first person ever to do it in the UK is amazing! Events like this allow me to connect with fans from all over the world that I wouldn’t otherwise get the chance to.”

“It has been great fun and I’ve really enjoyed giving fans a sneak peak of songs from my new album and answering questions from fans.”

Jessie J also discussed the title track from her new album ‘Alive’ by saying:  “I wrote that song with four chords on a piano and that was it. I wanted to write a song that represents how I feel right now. I feel like I now know what I need to be as an aunt.”

“As a sister. As a mother one day. I know what I want to leave behind. I know what kind of friend I want to be. I’m not saying I am that person right now, but I’m saying that in the sense that I know how I want to get there and that’s what the song is about.”
