Jessie J: Miley Cyrus paid my rent

Jessie J has revealed Miley Cyrus helped pay her rent for years after making Party In The USA a hit.

The British singer admitted most of her money comes from the songs she writes for other artists.

Jessie told Glamour magazine: "You've got to write songs, that's where the money is, being an artist.

"Party In The USA paid my rent for, like, three years.

"Actually it was way longer than that. That's where I get most of my money. I write songs. I'm a singer.

"I love endorsements and stuff, but that's all added on."

And Jessie - who has written songs for Alicia Keys and Miley among others - revealed she believes women are all singing about the same thing - feelings.

She said: "All women are saying, singing and speaking about the same thing, but in their own way - love, heartbreak, reassurance, sexiness, belief, how we look, how we feel. We're all singing about it and doing it."
