Jessie J Slams Body-Shamers After Being Asked If She’s Pregnant

It must be shut down. Jessie J told fans to “just stop” commenting on her body after being asked whether she’s pregnant.

“Stop commenting on people’s weight, anyone. Just stop,” the “Price Tag” singer, 34, wrote via her Instagram Story on Thursday, March 31. “Or telling someone they look pregnant for sure, or you look skinny, just anything, just stop. I see it so much on socials and I know it happens in real life.”

Jessie went on to say that while she has recently gained some weight, she feels “great” and isn’t worried about it. “I don’t care, as long as I feel good and I’m healthy,” she argued.

Though she isn’t bothered by any changes her body goes through, that hasn’t stopped others from offering her unsolicited advice. “Someone literally just asked me if I was pregnant,” the “Domino” performer claimed. “And they also knew of what I went through last year and told me their thoughts on that and how I should’ve handled it. So strange and so damn bold, I would never.”

Jessie, who had been trying to have a child for years, revealed in November 2021 that she had miscarried. “I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. That is what I deserve. I want to be the best version of myself in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did it’s best,” she wrote via Instagram at the time.

Jessie continued: “I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. Being pregnant was a miracle in and of itself. I will never forget it and will do it again. I’m still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok.”

The West End vet’s recent interaction prompted her to remind her social media followers that it’s “not cool” to “comment on someone else’s body.” She continued on Tuesday, “Unless they/I tell you [to] or ask your opinion, it’s not one that’s needed or helpful. Wild that some people don’t know that.”

Jessie has previously spoken out about her infertility struggles and discussed her miscarriage 2021. “I was told four years ago that I can’t ever have children,” the Voice UK judge told the audience during a London concert in November 2018. “I wanted to write this song [‘Four Letter Word’]To be there for myself in times of sadness and pain, but also to bring joy to others, to offer them something to listen to when it gets really difficult. So if you’ve ever experienced anything with this or have seen somebody else go through it or have lost a child, then please know you’re not alone in your pain and I’m thinking of you when I sing this song.”

In June 2019, Jessie confessed that she wasn’t giving up her hope of becoming a mother one day. “I’ve always been someone that’s open and honest,” she said on the “Heart Breakfast” radio podcast at the time. “Four, four-and-a-half, five years ago, I was diagnosed with this disease, which is making it harder. I was told I can’t have children, but I don’t believe it. I believe in miracles. I haven’t given up.”
