Pop singer Jessie J has revealed that she is writing an autobiography of her life so far, to be released in September. How can that be, you ask? She only released her debut album in 2011! Well before that album came out, Miss J had an entire career as a songwriter — she penned tracks for Chris Brown and wrote Miley Cyrus’s big fat hit “Party In The U.S.A.” She’s since become a worldwide sensation and a coach on the UK version of The Voice.

We’ve put together a list of five things we hope Jessie J will reveal in her autobiography. Fingers crossed!
1. How To Properly Wear A Wig
Jessie is well known for wearing her pageboy wig while performing — not an easy feat. In fairness, she did shave her hair off late in 2011 to benefit a charity, so perhaps the wig was necessary on-stage. But we’d like to hear why she didn’t pull a full Sinead O’Conner/Natalie Portman and go full bald. The likes of Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston have been known to work a wig also, but no one has ever come right out and explained the ins and outs of how you keep that thing on while you’re dancing on stage.
2. Her Real Feelings On Miley Singing Her Song
Look, if you watch the video for “Party In The U.S.A.” now, it’s obviously a Jessie J song. Straight down to the delivery. And shortly after that, Miley’s music career took a big nose dive. So what does Jessie reallythink of America’s former teen sweetheart turning her track into a big fat hit?
3. Does She Really Want To “Do It Like A Dude”?
Simmer down, it’s the name of her song — written for Rihanna and inspired by “Rude Boy,’ if you must know. But Jessie is out as a bi-sexual, telling the press she has had relationships with both men and women, but calling it no big deal. Maybe it’s less of a sex thing and more of a power thing but we’d love to know if Jessie is interested in actually doing it like a dude. And if so…with who?
4. What’s With The Hate For Singing Shows?
Jessie’s stint as a judge on The Voice is in question after the show earned low ratings in the UK and she called some of the producer’s decisions “lame.” Apparently she also made some not-so-nice comments about the X Factor and made an enemy of Simon Cowell, getting herself banned from his show as well. All that’s left is American Idol (er, or British Idol). Does she really hate them all? And we want the backstage dish on what’s so lame on The Voice.
Watching American Idol and just saw Joshua Ledet sing ‘When a man loves a woman’ WOW WOW WOW!! I (cont) tl.gd/geila8

5. The Cast
If you saw Jessie on the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, you noticed she was performing with a cast on while sitting in a throne. A few months before she tore several tendons in her foot, was forced to give up her spot opening for Katy Perry on the California Dreamstour and was put on foot rest by her doctor. All cool. But then she had to wear the cast for what felt like 8 months. What we want to know is: what exactly did she use to scratch inside there?
