Jessie J brushes off 'diva demand' rumours
Jessie J has dismissed reports she has a list of "diva demands", insisting the only bizarre item she requires in her dressing room is a lava lamp.
The Price Tag hitmaker was rumoured to have requested pricey champagne and exercise equipment to be stocked backstage at The Voice during her stint as a judge.
But the singer is adamant she only asked for a scented candle to help her relax, and a lava lamp, as it reminds her of her time spent in London's Great Ormond Street Hospital, where she was treated for heart problems as a child.
She tells Grazia magazine, "No champagne. No yoga mats or anything. That was meant to be one of my diva demands. I did ask for a scented candle. I don't think it's too much to ask for a nice, relaxing smell in the room.
"I also asked for a lava lamp. When I was a kid, they used to have a room at Great Ormond Street Hospital where you'd go and chill out. It was full of lava lamps and water lamps and since then it's always been a way to help me wind down...
"But is there anything wrong with asking for what you know is good for you? Does that make you a diva, a pain? Or does it make you someone who knows what they want?"
