Jessie J May Never Sing Again (Though She Probably Will Anyway)
Say it ain’t so.
According to U.K’s The Mirror, the British crooner is suffering from Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which causes irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath and fatigue that could affect her performances in the future.
“I don’t know if I’m going to be in control to this as long as I want,” she is quoted saying, adding that the condition affects her “more often than people think.”
“I have prided myself in having got this far without having to lip-sync but if my career carries on moving at the pace that it is, I will have to lip-sync to be able to stay well,” she continues. “My songs are so big [but] this is what I do.”
However, the “Domino” songstress later shares an Instagram vowing to continue using her own voice during concerts, writing:
Earlier this week, Jessie J had to cancel a string of Australian tour dates after falling ill. The 26-year-old made no mention whether the sickness had to do with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.
“I have unfortunately been medically advised to cancel my three remaining shows in Australia, so I can give myself time to rest and get better,” she said in a statement at the time. “If I could magic myself better and be there I would. I can’t wait to perform for you all in the future.”
At least she can still sing with her mouth closed, right?
