BRACE YOURSELVES: 'Masterpiece' hitmaker and indiscriminate brand advocate JJJJJJessie 'Cornish' J is ready to start making another album.
Having a chat on Live With Kelly (as quoted here), ostensibly about her role in the new Ice Age movie, J also had some things to say about returning to The Voice in Australia.
“I love doing the show,” she mused. “I’ve done four seasons – two in the UK and two in Sydney. But I just need to make another album.”
Is it really time-consuming though? Does she get to the point where she's in the chair and she just wants to sing?
"It’s really time-consuming, and if I’m honest with you, I get to the point where I’m in the chair, and I just want to sing. 'I want to tell you how to make it better, I want to coach you, but I want to make it a duet'."
If she could sum these frustrations up in a neat phrase that offers the potential for both pain and pleasure, what would she say?
"I’m ready to write another album."
Meanwhile, talking about her Oscar buzz generating role as Brooke in Ice Age: Collision Course, JJ added:
“I did an hour’s audition and tried to find a voice they liked. I don’t want to get it because of the music I’ve done. I want to get it because I deserve it."
So there we are.
