Speaking to BBC Radio 1 for Jessie J: Lyrics of My Life
, the singer described how dreaming was her only escape when growing up. "I had really big teeth, a big fringe. I was just uncomfortable in my skin. I wasn't the pretty kid, I was the awkward one that didn't know who I fitted in with," she said. "The only place where I could escape was my dreams. I would enjoy going to sleep because I could dream about something that I wasn't living."
"I remember when I first became established and I received Facebook messages from girls who used to throw stones at my head as I walked home from school," Jessie continued. "It just made me go, 'Who's laughing now
?' It sparked a real emotion that I know hundreds of thousands of millions of children around the world are going through."
