Jessie J feels like fame has taken over her entire life.

The 22-year-old singer says celebrity has come so quickly - with her scoring a number two hit with her debut UK single 'Do It Like A Dude' and being named recipient of the Critic's Choice prize at the 2011 BRIT Awards last December- she is still adapting to it, but feels she has the power to stay in the spotlight for her fans.

She said: "My whole life has been pulled from under me. But something tells me this isn't going to be a come and go story - they're going to stick around, the fans.

"For years I've been that little girl watching the BRITs saying: 'I want to win,' and now I'm the girl getting it.

"I've got to be me and not cater to the small majority that want to bring me down, 'cos then I'll lose my mind."

The 'Price Tag' star - who was hospitalised after suffered a minor stroke when she was 18 - also said she prides herself in writing music about her own experience, as she thinks an artist's record should tell the world something about themselves.

The singer added to RWD Magazine: "I can only write and sing songs that have been shoes I've walked in.

"Which is why I like to have a dramatic life, otherwise my album would have been boring."

"I listen to so many people's albums and feel I don't know them at the end of it.

"When you listen to my album you really get to know me."
