Jessie Ware has revealed one of her fans once gave her a book she had written about her putting raspberries on her head.

The 28-year-old Wildest Moments singer told The Sun she was flattered by the gift, but admitted it was the weirdest thing a fan had ever given her.

Jessie said: "I was on stage and this girl handed me a thick wad of A4 paper. She said 'Jessie I write a book for you.' It was on happiness, talking about putting raspberries on my head and stuff.

"I wanted to keep it but my boyfriend is a bit worried about it."

Jessie was nominated for two Brit Awards this years, as well as being nominated at the Mobos and the Mercury Music Prize last year. But she revealed if she hadn't become a musician she would have liked to be a social worker or a teacher.

Jessie said: "My mum's a social worker and I think those are the important jobs.

"I'm very lucky to be doing this and it's fun. I mean, you're watching me get my hair and make-up done but it's not the real world."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
