Jessie J 'an odd child'

Jessie J

Jessie J admits that she was a pretty weird tyke.

The pop songstress confesses that she exhibited bizarre behaviour as a youth.

Jessie found inanimate objects to be extremely good playmates.

"I used to sit by plant pots, I don't know why," she revealed on UK TV show Chatty Man.

Jessie also had a penchant for insects as a child.

Apparently she found the cold-blooded creatures delectable.

"There is a picture of me about three with bright yellow hair covered in mud and eating ants and stuff," she recalled.

"I used to eat tiny little spiders, I don't know why. I was an odd child. On the beach everyone would be making sandcastles and I'd be making a TV. And on videos I am there in the background making whale noises."

Jessie's new biography Nice to Meet You has been released in bookstores across the UK.

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
