Boy, you give someone the opening number of Grease: Live, she takes a mile. British singer Jessie J recently lamented her lack of success in the U.K. to Women’s Health, comparing it to her heretofore undetected level of critical acclaim in the States. “It makes me sad. I’ve done the Grammys, the VMAs,” the singer said, “My profile in America is that I’m kind of celebrated as one of the greatest singers — and I love it.” Girl. Girl. She continued: “I want to be up there with the Celine Dions, Whitneys, Beyoncés, and Arethas … I go hard because I hope and pray that one day people look back and go, ‘She could really f—king sing.” That striking three-part harmony you just heard was Celine Dion, Beyoncé, and Aretha Franklin doing a simultaneous Champagne spit-take. “Domino” was pretty good, though.
