Popstar Jessie J discussed his heartbreaking miscarriage with fans at her concert Thursday night show at The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles.
Hours before taking the stage, Jessie announced via Instagram that she lost her baby, telling followers that she “was dreading the thought of getting through” her LA gig after learning that doctors could no longer find a heartbeat.
Jessie thanked concertgoers for helping her feel less alone as she mourns her pregnancy loss.
“I wanted to be here tonight because the one thing I believe in the most in this whole entire universe, beyond surface conversations and Instagram and the internet, is being human and being vulnerable and being real,” she said.
Moreover, the “Price Tag” singer recalled the rough year she’s had when she heard loss in December 2020, which led to a Ménière’s disease diagnosis.
She also acknowledged losing her voice at one point, calling the incident “f–king awful” as she “didn’t know who [she] was without” performing.
“And then I lost my baby,” she added somberly, though she expressed a desire to stay positive despite the setbacks. “I know I’m going to be OK because there is really nothing else to choose in the way I live.”
Fans expressed full support for the Popstar on social media, applauding her for her vulnerability onstage.
