Featured Song – Day 24
While the jury’s possibly still out as to whether this JJ is the real deal – a bona-fide Janis Joplin for the TOWIE generation, maybe? – Jessie’s on-record pronouncements about her bisexuality are real enough. And after what seemed like an eternity of run-of-the-mill pop minxes styled and presented entirely for the benefit of the opposite sex – semi-clad, pouting, shaking their bits to their latest hits, etc., – there was something quite refreshing about this Essex girl turning the tables on the fellas on her debut single. At the end of the day it’s all about role models, isn’t it? And if I was a 2012 teen, confused about my sexuality, I’d imagine statements like “I’ve never denied it. Whoopie-doo guys, yes, I’ve dated girls and I’ve dated boys – get over it” might just feel like some kind of lifeline.
