Jessie J has said she was overwhelmed to lean that her song Who You Are had saved someone's life.

"I got a letter recently saying someone was going to take their life but heard this song and now they're back in college and dealing with things. It's absolutely mental to think I had something to do with that turnaround. To have that now, already in my career, is amazing, but I do feel the pressure to write a better one," she said.

While she might feel the pressure to produce better songs, it's about the only thing worrying the singer at the moment.

"It's all about getting things in balance," she said. "Basically, I'm going to mime on stage sometimes, I'm going to wear things that people hate, I'm going to have relationships that people disapprove of, I'm going to swear on live TV. I'm not worried about making mistakes, everyone does.

"I'm just normal. I'm sick of this idea that because I've been signed to a record label I've got no cellulite, have perfect skin and a great a**e. I'm a human being, my teeth aren't white and I get diarrhoea at the most awkward times, like everyone else," she said.

:: Jessie J's debut album Who You Are is out on Monday, February 28.
