Jessie J: Who's Laughing Now

While Jessie J’s childhood bullies were busy with binge drinking and boyfriends, she was lying in a hospital bed contemplating open heart surgery and watching her ward mates die in front of her eyes. Yet a few years later, the tables turned and the face of the girl they’d dismissed as a nobody who’d never make it was plastered all over national TV. This revealing first ever biography on Jessie – packed full of exclusive interviews and insights into her early life – tells the compelling story of a girl so determined to succeed that, as a child, she attended ballet classes hooked up to a heart monitor and practiced pointe work until her toes bled. This inside story on her journey to fame brings to life a tale of raw ambition and tenacity against a backdrop of chronic illness, relentless bullying and a string of failed record deals and ill-fated lesbian love affairs.
