The Voice UK 2013: Jessie J blasts her critics

Jessie J (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK coach Jessie J has rather publicly hit back at her critics after the first episode of the new series at the weekend.

Still clearly learning to take the bad with the good, Jessie blasted those who complained about her appearance on the BBC One series.

Many viewers and TV critics moaned about Jessie, with one writing: "Jessie mistakes being charmless rude egotistical and unpleasant for being real."

We told on Monday how a lot of fans claimed the new series was more about the coaches than the acts, as two million fewer viewers tuned in to the launch compared to last year.

However Jessie hit back on Twitter today, writing: "An edited version is never the full story. You wouldn't write a review on a book after reading 3 pages would you?"

She added to her millions of followers: "When you go to bitch about someone you have never met....Think....for a second before you do... 'Oh yeah I have NEVER met them'"

The outburst follows other reports this morning branding the 'Laserlight' singer a 'diva' backstage.

It was claimed today that Jessie was 'causing chaos' behind the scenes of The Voice 2013, with supposed tantrums and attention seeking antics.

However Jessie previously brushed off such criticisms.

“I don’t think there’s ever been any show on TV where a girl hasn’t had the diva stamp. I see it as some sort of compliment because the original divas were the Shirley Basseys, the Whitney Houstons,” she explained last month.

The 25-year-old added: “I would never ever want anyone to think that’s how I am. Because I’m not. I’m the complete opposite.

“I have eight people in my team – not 50, which is what was said in the papers. But you can’t win, I’ve realised that it happens to women.”
