Re: Jessie J’s animal lookalike
I went to a farm yesterday. I thought this pig looked like Jessie J.

You see on one hand this is just YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE of internet cyberhighweb BULLIES throwing insults at popstars based on how they look, all the more offensive in this case as the songbird Jessie J has spent a lot of time educating the world THROUGH MUSIC about exactly this sort of behaviour. On the other hand, sometimes when she does that thing with her nose, she does look a little bit, well, not exactly porcine per se, but at the same time not wholly human. 'TBH' we're more concerned about the fact that someone seems to have thrown a Niall Horan novelty wig into the mix.
Re: Jessie J’s hovering foot on The Voice
I am writing in relation to The Voice. In particular, I wish to address the dramatic tension the judges try to introduce by hovering their hands over their buzzers.
Last week, in an attempt to up this ’dramatic tension’, Jessie J hovered her foot above the buzzer and held her leg there in her hands for a while. It didn’t really work and she kind of looked like my mother when she did that yoga class a few years ago.
Anyway, I found this foot/leg hover quite irritating – I am wondering if I am alone in this?Love from Eimear (Dublin)
There are very few things about The Voice that aren't irritating. This is not one of those things. In fact, if one were to write a list of all annoying things about The Voice, Jessie J waving her leg around in the air would come fairly high. Mind you when you've got Tom Jones sitting a few seats down you're never going to be the biggest twat in the room, so Jessie could graduate from using her lower limbs as gavels and end up swinging her leg around like a majorette's baton and probably get away with it.
Re: How amazing Popjustice is / various
Thank you for offering up this opportunity to get in touch. Your tweets make me feel good about liking pop music, especially the really trashy stuff. Honestly I can’t tell my friends and colleagues, they just wouldn’t get it. Only my partner who is lovely and English knows I sing along to most anything while doing the dishes.
Thank you for introducing me to Stooshe and for your Spotify playlists, and for keeping the flame going for Darren Hayes, for whom I think most Australians feel partly responsible. It’s very sweet. (Although I’ve tried and I can’t get into him. Maybe he reminds me too much of an awkward adolescent time…)
I use pop music for running to and cycling in and out of the city for uni and work. There’s something amazing about how blissful it can make you. I had a little ecstasy-like high once in the middle of a run at the hardest point listening to Ellie Goulding’s ‘Believe Me’ which just happened to peak at the same time, it was stunning. But I don’t know, you may have high standards. How about the trifecta of ‘Run To You’s by Lady Antebellum, Bryan Adams, and Whitney Houston? Great stuff there.Love from Maddie (Melbourne Australia)
It's hard to share your enthusiasm for Lady so-called 'Antebellum' because yes we do indeed have high standards, but we too are partial to a lovely ladyvoice and out of the 'Run To You' triumvirate we'd go for Whitney's any day of the week. Be careful when out running and look both ways before you cross the road.
