“This year has been the hardest year I’ve ever been through … and then I lost my baby,” she said. “I know I’m going to make it, because there really is nothing else to choose in the way I live.
“I wanted to be here tonight because the one thing I believe in most in this whole universe, besides surface conversations and Instagram and the internet, is being human and being vulnerable and being genuine.”
The morning before her show, Jessie J boldly opened up about her abortion in a heartbreaking Instagram post.
“I decided to have a baby alone. Because it’s everything I’ve ever wanted and life is short. Getting pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will get back, “she wrote.
“I’m still in shock, the grief is overwhelming. But I know I’m strong and I know I will cope.”
