Going on to explain that performing for her fans will help her to grieve, Jessie continued: “What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because Im avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.”

“I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer.”

Sharing that she has made the decision to have a baby alone, a decision that was not easy for her. Jessie also said that she someday hopes to carry a child again, as being a mother is something she has always wanted.

“I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again.”
