Jessie: I hate hearing me sing

Jessie J has admitted that she finds listening to her own songs cringeworthy.

The Wild singer told BBC Radio 1 of her embarrassment when one of her hit songs is played in public.

She said: "I don't like listening to myself sing. It's weird listening to your own song, you'll be in a restaurant or a theme park and you cringe.

"At [a recent Morocco] festival I went to listen to Rihanna though, I like hearing her."

The Voice mentor also talked about making her new album and how she likes to work.

She said: "We recorded nine songs in six days, about four weeks ago. I don't feel like I've had time to relax and get into album mode but I think that can be a blessing, I'm a 12-6pm kind of chick.

"I like to wake up, have breakfast, go into the studio, then talk about what we are going to do for an hour or so, then record for four or five hours, then have dinner and talk about what we've done. I'm not into recording until six in the morning. It's not a party."

Jessie J's latest single Wild, featuring Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal, entered the UK singles chart at number five at the weekend.
