Jessie J is rocking a new, VERY short hairstyle this evening after shaving her head for Comic Relief. The Domino singer pledged to lose her locks and raise money for the charity last year and has been working hard ever since to promote her cause. While we had every faith in the singer and knew she’d go through with it, we’re still utterly shocked, moved, and in awe of the star for going all the way.
Jessie has raised over £500,000 for the charity, just for shaving her head – and the figure is still climbing. She appeared on the BBC One Comic Relief show earlier this evening to show an enthusiastic Lenny Henry snipping away at her gorgeous gloosy black bob in one last plea for funds. Half of the star’s head was then shaved off backstage, leaving just her trademark blunt fringe. Sob!
She then unveiled her brand new look – the shortest haircut we’ve ever seen – to a huge round of applause from the studio audience, plus presenters Claudia Winkleman and Dermot O’Leary.
The Voice judge admitted that her parents and family were crying backstage as it had been such a moving moment, and said: “Shaving my head is the smallest thing I can do for people who’ve lost so much.”
Jessie, you’re officially our hero. RM
