Jessie J Opens Up About Infertility
Jessie J has explained the meaning behind her song "Four Letter Word" and opened up about her infertility.
The British singer wrote on Instagram stories that it's been out four years since she found out she "won't be able to have children".
"I was also told I would need a hysterectomy immediately and need to be put on medication. I refused the hysterectomy and I'm off all medication through natural medicine and diet change," she wrote.
"I haven't given up hope," she added. "I'm doing all I can to make it happen the best way my body will allow."
The "Think About That" singer added in a second post that the "emotional journey to motherhood" needs to be spoken about openly.
"It’s taken a long time for me to be open. But it’s my truth. And when I put it in my music it’s out there."
Jessie J added that she "believes in miracles" and hopes to be a mother one day but if it "doesn't happen naturally... then that wasn't meant to be the journey".
"It has been scary to be so vulnerable. But it’s real. I wrote the song for myself in a moment of sadness that helped me turn that sadness into strength, and for anyone else who has experienced anything close with this subject of fertility issues. It’s a personal unique journey.
"My love prayers and thoughts are with everyone and anyone who relates in their own way."
It's the second time this weekend that Jessie J has opened up in such a raw and honest way on her Instagram page.
The singer recently started dating actor Channing Tatum and called for the media to stop comparing her to his ex, Jenna Dewan.
"...there is a story I have seen be rewritten over and over again in the past few weeks that talks about myself being compared directly to another beautiful woman regarding our looks and people picking who they think is prettier," she wrote.
"Be sensitive with your words, be kind with your words," she urged.
