Jessie J: ‘I haven’t even been invited to the Brit Awards for ten years — don’t make it any harder for me than it is’

Jessie J has claimed that the Brit Awards has snubbed her for a decade by not inviting her to the event.

Jessie J left fans stunned after venting her fury about failing to receive an invite to the Brit Awards, as well as asking them not to sing along during her performance.

The 34-year-old, from Ilford, was performing in London when she made the unexpected outburst.

The songwriter claimed that IPhone speakers pick up bad singers in the audience when filming and when the videos of her performances are shared online she receives bad feedback.

Jessie told her fans: “If you know you can’t sing, no matter what you’ve been told at the family barbeque, keep it low,”

“These IPhones are on another level now. It will pick up your s***** version of Flashlight and it will be your voice and my face.

“I don’t deserve it.”
