Jessie J would very much like if she will not be included in this story. And even more than that, she would like this story to end altogether.
The “Flashlight” singer went to her Instagram on Friday to speak out after new headlines surfaced comparing her to her boyfriend, Channing Tatum’s, ex-girlfriend, Jenna Dewan. Although Jenna informally commented on the subject on Instagram previously this week, Jessie J couldn’t help but post a long essay about the absence of positivity in comparing the looks of two ladies.
“I rarely, but sometimes see that my name is involved in stories online that I do not agree to. I often ignore them as 99 percent of the time it is something that doesn’t serve any positivity to speak on,” she inscribed. “However there is a story I have seen be re-written over and over again in the past few weeks that talks about myself being compared directly to another beautiful woman regarding our looks and people picking who they think is prettier.”
“I am so disappointed and embarrassed that my name is even involved. It’s not something I stand for, at all,” Jessie continued, whose relationship with Channing made headlines in early October. He and Jenna publicised their breakup after eight years of marriage in April. Jenna Dewan filed for divorce in late October.
Jessie J continued, clarifying that she is bothered about the impact stories like the one including her and Jenna Dewan would have on young girls. “I am a woman that supports ALL women. I am a woman that loves ALL women and will not stand quietly when the media is teaching young girls to constantly compare one another. Or to pick who they think is prettier,” Jessie wrote. “We are all BEAUTIFUL.”
Previously this week, Jenna remained above fans’ comparison comments, instead replying to one fan, who said she didn’t see the resemblance between the two, and encouraged the actress to “keep doing you.” “Positive vibes all the way,” Jenna replied.
Channing Tatum, for the meantime, has been very “supportive” of Jessie, a source revealed recently.
“Channing Tatum wants to do nothing but support Jessie J in every way,” the source said. Channing has described Jesssie J as ‘all goodness’ and told his friends she is such ‘a super talent.’ He appears to have become her Number one fan. His friends are so happy he has found someone. Jessie also is showing the same support to him.”
