Jessie J Reveals Fertility Struggles, Explains Meaning Of Her Song “Four Letter Word” (Video)

While on her current London tour in the U.K., singer Jessie J revealed for the first time publicly her issues with fertility.


Jessie spoke on the meaning of her song “Four Letter Word” while on stage, as she revealed to the public her personal life. Stating that “Four years ago, I was told that I couldn’t have children, and it’s OK, I’m going to have children, trust me. When the doctor told me, my reaction was, ‘Oh hell noooooooooo,'” Jessie sang as fans cheered and applauded her.  “I don’t tell you guys for sympathy, because I’m one of millions of women and men that have gone through this and will go through this,” she told the crowd at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Jessie continues to say why she wrote this song. “It can’t be something that defines us. I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and sadness but also to give myself joy, to give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard.”

The singer went into greater detail on her Instagram story Saturday. “After explaining the meaning of my song ‘Four Letter Word’ on stage during this tour. The love and support I have received has been overwhelming. Thank you,” she wrote. “I was told 4 years ago I won’t be able to have children. I was also told I would need a hysterectomy immediately and to be put on medication. I refused the hysterectomy I’m off all medication through natural medicine and diet change.”
Despite what she was told, Jessie continues to say she will be a mother, whether natural or not. “I am doing all I can to make it happen the best way my body will allow,” she continued, insisting, “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. But a mother is within all of us. That inspires everyday. We are strong. Time will tell.”
