Jessie J has spoken out about her many health issues, saying they made her value her life today. The 23-year-old singer has had many health issues in her life, including a minor stroke at the tender age of 18.

She told Contact Music:

I think what happened to be with my health in the past – when I was younger I had a minor stroke – it made me realise that you can’t guarantee life every day.

However old you are, however much you love life, however happy you are, however healthy you are, it doesn’t matter, nothing’s guaranteed. And I think it made me want to take that risk to expose myself as me and not as a version of myself..

We hope that Jessie is taking good care of herself and taking some time off this Christmas, she definitely deserves it.
