Jessie J is not in love - yet!


The 26-year-old singer went public with new boyfriend Luke James last month. And while things are going incredibly well with her beau, Jessie admits she’s not quite ready to say the L word yet. “Am I in love right now? I’m working on being in love,” she told Britain’s Glamour magazine. “That’s the truth. I don’t want to sound mean. But I’m not in love... yet. I’m learning how to fall in love.”

However, just because Jessie isn’t quite there as yet with Luke, that’s not to say she doesn’t see this relationship being a long-term one.

In fact, Jessie adds in the interview that she has already considered that R&B songwriter Luke could be “the one”.

“Why not?” she said. “I’m nearly 27. I’m at a point in my life where anyone I’m allowing to give that part of myself to, I want to give the chance for it to be forever. And he’s really amazing.”

Jessie has enjoyed something of a career reinvention in recent months courtesy of her incredible track Bang Bang.

But while her career is going from strength to strength, she says there are still more than a few goals she has yet to achieve.

“I want to do charity stuff, a line of perfume, another book. I’d like to write an inspirational book, an acoustic album, have kids, and get married,” she said.

“I want to buy my mum and dad a house outright; I want to buy my sisters’ houses outright. I’m nearly 27 and I’m nowhere near done. I feel like I’ve only just got my foot in the door.”
