“Seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant,” she writes. “By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down.”
She shared that, “After going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat.”
The English songwriter shared with fans that she would still sing for Wednesday’s show and that it “feels safer” to share the news on social media than trying to explain it onstage. Jessie J realized what has happened to her has happened to many women and that she is not alone in her experience.
“I decided to have a baby on my own,” she says. “Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted, and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget, and I know I will have again. I also know millions of women around the world have felt this pain and way worse.”
Fans later expressed support for the “Bang Bang” artist on social media. The artist discussed the heartbreaking miscarriage at her show, and video clips shared by fans online showed a side of Jessie J that many had not seen. Many applauded her for her vulnerability onstage.
“I’m still in shock,” she says.” The sadness is overwhelming.”
She added, “But I know I am strong, and I know I will be okay.”
