Jessie J likes to help people with her music, which she says is the most rewarding aspect of her career
Jessie J wants to "save the world" with her music.
The 'Price Tag' hitmaker is pleased when she receives messages from fans who have related to her lyrics because she has always wanted to make a difference to people's lives.
She said: The most amazing thing is to comfort people.
"Every day on twitter I get, 'Your album saved my life right now' and, 'How did you put my life into words?'
"I just don't want to write music that's throwaway. Ever since I was a kid I've written poetry and songs to make people thing. I've always wanted to save the world in my own little way."
The 23-year-old star believes her desire to help people through her music comes from her father, who is a social worker, and she wants people to realise she doesn't have a "sugar-coated, perfect" life.
She explained: "My dad's a social worker and I almost want to give that to the world.
"I think people are done with, 'I'm in the club, shakin' my booty', with running away from their bad day. I think they want someone who's gonna go, 'Fix up - welcome to the real world.'
"I'm fed up of people sugar-coating life for kids, making them think everything's amazing and everyone's perfect looking and artists don't get spots or diarrhoea before a show. We do. And that's what I wanna stand for.
"I want to write music that brings some light into the world."
