Jessie J feels "childish" singing 'Price Tag' because she wrote it when she was still a teenager
Jessie J feels "childish" singing 'Price Tag'.
The singer wrote her first album when she was still a teenager and feels some of the tracks on it feel are a little immature to sing now she is 25.
She told Hello! magazine: "I was 18 when I wrote my first album. However much I love 'Price Tag' I feel a little childish singing it now, and that's OK. Everyone grows, everyone learns, evolves. With this foundation it's more the foundation of who I'm going to be forever instead of who I am right now."
Jessie's latest album, 'Alive', features a number of uplifting tracks she thinks will be good to be played at weddings.
She added: "This album's a lot more gospel, a lot more 80s, more soul. There's a lot of good wedding songs, like happy love songs."
Jessie also said she is most influenced by experiences from her own life when she is writing, as she finds them the most comfortable to sing live.
She added: "I've always found singing songs that I've 'lived' makes more sense to me, which is why I and make my life as exciting as I can. Mistakes make great songs, so there's always an excuse to make one."
