The Voice star and Singer Jessie J is said to have burst into tears because she had only been able to recruit one girl, Katie Benbow, to be on her team after two rounds of auditions.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jessie had a massive meltdown and was crying over what she saw as women not wanting to work with her.

"She is very feisty and speaks her mind, but she fears that is putting girls off.

"Men seem to love working with her and she has had lots of success snaring male contestants but so far not much with the girls.

"She was asking backstage what she was doing wrong and is desperate to increase the number of women on her team."

Fellow judge Danny O'Donoghue has two girls in his three acts so far, and half of Sir Tom Jones' team are women. will.i.am, like Jessie, also has only one girl in his team so far.

Jessie said on last Saturday's (06.04.13) show: "I just want females to not be scared to work with me."

You prefer to work out problems in secret, with no interference from friends and family. It's not that you don't respect other people's opinions. You simply know intuition is your best guide. In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
