For Jessie J, working out is a way to get fit and feel strong — something that’s particularly important to her as she manages a heart condition. The singer, 29, inherited Wolff-Parkinson-White disease — a condition that means she has an extra electrical pathway in her heart that causes shortness of breath and dizziness — from her father, and his father before him.
“It doesn’t go away, sadly. It’s just something that I’ve had to deal with since I was a child, and it pushed me to get stronger. It’s just part of who I am,” Jessie J, a spokesperson for Propel Electrolyte Water, tells PEOPLE.
But after undergoing surgeries as a child, she doesn’t worry too much about burning out during concerts or her workouts — she’s learned how to monitor her body.
“I do have to make sure I stay healthy and look after myself,” Jessie J says. “I kind of love that I have something that pushes me to be healthier. I credit that to my mum and dad. Because even when I was in hospital as a kid and I was having operations, and I was let out of hospital to go to school rehearsals for plays and I would go back in at night, but they never let it define me, or make me feel different,” she says. “They always told me to use it as a strength and I know that I inspire anyone who has an illness or feels trapped.”
Now, as part of her partnership with Propel, the “Domino” singer is encouraging people to workout “ugly,” and not to care about how they look in the gym.
“I just wanted to recreate the way people see the word ugly,” she says. “For me it’s like, don’t care, stop judging yourself, get on with it, get sweaty, get fit. Who cares what you look like? Don’t wear makeup; your hair’s going to be a mess. Just do it. People say that you’re too skinny, or you’re too fat. You’re never enough,” she says. “I think it’s so fickle and silly. I’m comfortable in my own skin, so I try to inspire people who aren’t there yet to get there.”
And overall, she focuses on trying to “be good to myself” — while keeping her heart condition in mind. “I go out with nice boys who don’t break my heart,” she says. “Cause it’s sore already.”
Her own exercise routine. I’m not obsessed with working out every day. But I do enjoy working out whether it’s cycling, running or weight training, which is my favorite thing. I’m naturally quite slim so weight training, which I started in the last two years, has helped me gain shape. I just like having fun when I work out.
Cutting sugar, her latest adventure. I do a lot of vegan protein. And I like making shakes as a meal supplement; usually having one in addition to three meals a day. I recently cut out all sugar in the last week. Some would call that an adventure, some would call it torture. I’m in the process of feeling both at the moment [laughs]. However, feeling good makes you look good and feel at your best. So if I think something will make me feel good, I’ll try it. Even a green juice. It’s about finding your own balance. What makes somebody else feel good might not be what you like to eat or do in the gym. Your fitness journey is yours and no one else’s.
Going back to her musical roots. I’ve recently let my friends know that I’m working on new music. It’s been a very incredible process for me in the last two years. With this next lot of music, I’m very much going back to my roots like on my first album [2011’s Who You Are], which was very honest. I needed to go back to where it all began; to take a break in a good, positive way. From the ages 25-30, you learn so much and grow as a person. You become who you’re going to be for a long time. I’ve also enjoyed the process of just getting back to songwriting on my own. Where I’m at with the new music, everything written thus far I’ve written by myself. I’m really proud of it. It doesn’t reflect anything I’ve ever done before, which is exciting.
It’s an album musically that I’ve wanted to make for a long time and had to find the right time. Everyone who’s heard the album so far says it’s very honest and very grown. I’m speaking on issues that a 29-year-old goes through which is different from what I’ve sung about in the past. But I have to be true to what’s in my mind and heart. I’m working with one producer, DJ Camper [Mary J. Blige, John Legend], on this cohesive piece of work. It’s a piece of music as opposed to singles and album fillers. I feel like I’m making music. I don’t know when it will be out. I’m just enjoying the process that everything happens for a reason, trusting in time and feelings.
Being inspired by DJ Camper. He’s incredible, actually insane. I met him through a friend. He’s the most incredible pianist and comes from church. He’s inspired me more than I ever thought I could be inspired. I’m so happy I found an amazing friend as well as a producer in the process. It’s been a really beautiful experience for both of us. I don’t want to talk about it too much because I get a bit emotional. But I’m so excited for people to hear the music. It’s a side of my voice that I haven’t celebrated enough.
What she learned personally during her recording break. That to compare is actually a negative. You have to focus on your own inner path and light, signature and individuality. I’ve definitely learned to act on my instincts and trust them. Valuing myself and understanding that you have to do what you love. That sounds so easy but it’s hard to do, especially in this industry. I’ve got to an age where I just want to live out my truth.

Jessie J is one talented artist. But the British singer-songwriter, 28, has a hidden talent that might surprise her fans. Speaking to Stylish over Grammy weekend at Sir Lucian Grainge’s 2017 Artist Showcase, the singer confessed, “This is the first time I’ve had my makeup done by a professional makeup artist in a year! I do my own makeup for red carpets, I do it for shows, I do it for TV, and I’ve done my own makeup for every season of The Voice.” The “Bang Bang” singer says experience has made her a makeup expert. “It’s taken practice,” she says. “I love to draw, that’s where it all started. And I’m a perfectionist, which can sometimes make me late. But I’ve always done it myself just because I enjoy it! I find it relaxing and it’s quicker — I’m fast. Why not?”
And now, Jessie is putting her expertise to good use, pairing up with Make Up For Ever as the face and cocreator of its new Artist collection. “I love makeup and I’ve loved makeup since I was young,” explains the songstress. “It’s called Artist, and basically I’m the first artist to start my own line with them. I’ve been doing so much makeup stuff just for me, and Make Up For Ever really stands for artists and people that I like.” Explaining that she wants to be a role model for people to express their individuality, she says, “[The collection] is saying, ‘This is what you can do and you can do it your way.’ And that’s what I’m about. I just want to make sure young women and young men and anyone around the world, whoever wants to wear makeup, knows that they can be who they are and do what they want to do.”
“I’m not someone who follows a makeup trend because everyone else is doing it,” she says. “The contour thing, for example, is just not good on my face! So I avoid that. Or like the solid eyebrow isn’t my vibe.” In fact, what the pop star is really feeling right now is opposite from the high glam you might expect. “I really like the natural look at the moment,” she confesses. “I’m loving feeling clean and fresh – and I like a bushy soft eyebrow and a nude lip.” As for her makeup must-have when she’s performing on stage, Jessie says there’s one thing you’ll always find in her on-tour makeup bag. “Make Up For Ever just came out with this Acrylip lip paint – they’ve got this aubergine color I’m obsessed with. It’s like a stain but you can wear it thicker and it lasts.”
The star brought the crowd to their feet this weekend when she sang Prince’s iconic song “Purple Rain” at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles for Sir Lucian Grainge’s Artist Showcase, an annual pre-Grammy concert where Universal Music artists perform for a music-industry audience. This year’s lineup, which included Niall Horan, Desiigner and Big Sean, remains one of Jessie’s favorite days of the year. The “Price Tag” singer explains, “What’s beautiful about it is everyone here is so individual and everyone’s always working on their own stuff around the world — and no one gets to get together. So it’s almost like a school concert. It’s like it’s nice to come together and kind of be inspired by and talk to other artists and be around their energy. And everyone that it takes to make it all happen: the managers, the tour managers, the security, the glam squads, everyone. We’re all really proud to be Universal artists.” And one added bonus? Great food. Laughs the singer, “It’s like a festival, but with a really nice lunch!”
