With Jessie J now dating Channing Tatum, there have been lots of folks on the Internet commenting on how much she resembles his ex, Jenna Dewan, and it seems the singer isn’t very happy with the comparisons.
She recently took to social media to respond to the articles written about the comparisons, noting that she doesn’t usually comment on “something that doesn't serve any positivity to speak on.”
"However there is a story I have seen be rewritten over and over again in the past few weeks that talks about myself being compared directly to another beautiful woman regarding our looks and people picking who they think is prettier,” she shares. "…I have continuously tried to find something positive from this article…I am yet to….Who feels good from this story? I know I don't….Is picking who is prettier and then continuing to say why a good activity for women to participate in? No."
She goes on to point out that the media would never write such an article about men, and that there isn’t a “positive lesson” to be learned from it, adding that it doesn’t support women, rather has them “ripping women down.” She adds, “I am so embarrassed that my name is even involved. It’s not something I stand for.” Check out her complete post below.
As for Jenna, she tweeted her support for Jessie, noting, "Amen Jessie! Yes!!!! Women for women all the way. No need for negativity. Let's live in a world where we support each other and raise each other up."
ONE MORE THING! After revealing she's unable to have children during a concert, Jessie elaborated further about her fertility struggles on her Instagram story, sharing that at the time of her diagnosis she was told she needed a hysterectomy. She shares, "I refused the hysterectomy I’m off all medication through natural medicine and diet change.” As having children, Jessie notes, "I will be a mother." "I believe in miracles. But if it doesn’t happen naturally. Then that wasn’t meant to be the journey."
