Jessie J Undergoes Surgery, Says She Might ‘Go AWOL’ for a Bit
Even though she’s dealing with some “personal stuff,” Jessie J would still like you to know about it.
The singer, who had to cancel a string of Australian tour dates after falling ill in March, has undergone a mystery operation. Though she remains mum as to why she needed surgery, Jessie has taken to her Instagram speak about the procedure, writing:
On fleek to on bleek real quick | lol Before 😏 | After 😣 I’m going to be offline for a few days and I wanted to show you why | I don’t often share personal stuff (especially about my health) anymore | I just get on with it secretly 😉 | but I wanted to share with you before someone else might and it gets twisted and exaggerated into something different or worse. Meh. 😒 Just know I am ok as I say in the video on the right | I had an operation yesterday so need to rest | I won’t be saying what for so PLEASE don’t keep asking me or harassing my close ones on here or anywhere for information | Its personal and I know you can respect that | I just wanted to explain to my fans why I may go AWOL for a minute | Love, prayers and well wishes is all I need ❤️ Sleep | rest | maybe some pie and mash 🙊 but mostly focusing my mind on getting my body better | and for the record it’s not my heart or my voice | my heart and voice are FINE | ✊🏼 I want to take a moment to send a virtual hug and kiss out to anyone in pain or suffering at the moment. In hospital or at home. There is always someone worse off than us and in moments like this I pray for you all | Hospitals have been my secret second home my whole life and they never get nice to be in | But they can inspire a great song | Trying to see the positive in everything ☺️ Night gown could be good for the Voice live shows look too right? No? Too Much? 🐸☕️ lol Peace out for a minute people 🙋🏻 As Arni said on Graham Norton last night | “I’ll be back” 😁
Previously, Jessie, who suffers from Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, was quoted in saying that her irregular heartbeat and shortness of breath were starting to affect her live performances.
“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,” the quote read. “My songs are so big [but] this is what I do.”
Jessie later refuted the claims, telling fans, “I still have a heart problem … Had it since I was born. But my heart is ok. My body is healing. I don’t have to mime to hit my high notes on stage.”
