Jessie J: Sending nude pics is important

2014-10-16 21:00

Los Angeles - Jessie J thinks it is important to send nude photos to "keep your man".

The Bang Bang singer is one of the celebrities to have had their iCloud accounts hacked and intimate pictures stolen, and while the 26-year-old star thinks it is a "disgusting" thing to have happened, she believes it is something people in the public eye should expect.

She said: "I'm human and every single woman in this industry is in a long-distance relationship so sometimes you gotta throw things down to keep your man."

"At the end of the day, yes, it's awful and disgusting, it happens, but I think if you're famous you're going to have to expect these things will happen."

While Jessie is conscious that her young fans look up to her, she believes being regarded as a role model can be "dangerous" because it comes with so many expectations.

She added to LOOK magazine: "I'd be selfish if I didn't think about the responsibility but I feel like the more I've experienced it first-hand, the meaning 'role model' has become a little dangerous because it starts to become what other people want you to be as opposed to you being an inspiration to people.

"I feel I can't live my life to make everybody happy, which is obvious, but I just do my best to inspire."
