The UKs number one artist, Jessie J, has told a magazine she will never do drugs, and will always put her health first.

The ‘Do It Like a Dude’ singer revealed that a minor stroke when she was just 18 made her realise how important her health was, and that she now endeavours to lead as healthier lifestyle as possible.

Talking to Now magazine, she said: “At 11 I was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. I had wires put in my shoulder, groin and heart to try and zap it to a normal rhythm but it didn’t really work.

“Then at 18 I suffered a minor stroke. It was scary but I’m fine now. Having bad health has made me realise I can’t take anything for granted and I must look after my body.

“I’m a clean-living girl, I don’t drink or smoke and would never do drugs.”

The 22 year old singer also suffers from panic attacks, and had one on stage on Norway recently.

“I used to get panic attacks really badly when I was younger. I don’t like not being in control. I’m getting better though.

“But I did a gig recently and had a panic attack on stage. The night was called Black Out and I had to perform in the dark. I asked them to turn on the lights and they didn’t.

“I was on stage in pitch black and because I couldn’t see anything I started to panic. It was awful.”
