Jessie J Defends Misspelling In Tattoo Of Lyrics To Her Own Song

One of the most pressing concerns for anyone who is thinking of getting a tattoo is making sure it's spelled correctly.

Well, singer Jessie J reckons that it might not actually be a big deal after all. In a recent post to her Instagram account, she defended herself after eagle-eyed critics spotted a spelling error in a tat on her waist, which contains lyrics from one of her own songs.

The line should read 'don't LOSE who you are in the blur of the stars' but actually says 'don't LOOSE who you are'. Easily done.

As the internet responded in the exact way you'd expect - unleashing a volley of mockery - the 31-year-old came out fighting.

She posted to Insta: "Yes my tattoo says... 'don't loose who you are in the blur of the stars'.

"Yes they are MY lyrics from my song who you are Yes that I wrote Yes I spelt the tattoo wrong Yes I repeat it's spelt wrong.

"Yes I got it done in Essex Yes the tattoo artist didn't mention it Yes I was 18 Yes I still don't know the difference between lose and loose Yes It's the reason I wear everything high waisted [sic]."

But mocking her body art is one thing. Jessie (real name Jessica Cornish) also took the opportunity to address comments that were made about her body shape - and fair enough, if we're honest.

She added: ""And YES I know I have small boobs. Don't waste your time telling me like I don't see them everyday. Don't @ me K bye."

Since posting the pic, fans have flooded her Instagram post with replies, praising Jessie's defiance and bravery in coming out to confront her critics.

One person wrote: "At least you love who you are, that's the most important thing."

Another wrote: "So, welcome to the small boobs club. We are QUEENS."

While a third fan put: "Yes I have 'it's ok not to be ok' tattooed in my body. It's my music for all the bad moment. Always get me better. Thanks for being exactly who you are..."

Another person added: "Caption icon you look stunning Jess no matter what the haters think their just nip picking (sic) at things they have issues with you ARE a queen!"

The singer isn't the only one making a noise on social media, however - her partner, actor Channing Tatum, left little to the imagination when he was forced to share a nude pic to his 17 million Instagram followers, after losing a bet to Jessie herself.

Posting the revealing snap, Channing wrote: "I lost a game of Jenga to Jessica Cornish. The loser (me) had to post a picture the other person (Jessica Cornish) picked... Smh and fml... I'm never playing Jenga with her ever again..."

Probably a wise move, mate.
