The Independent Culture



Ed Sheeran's album + is beautiful just because it's purely about his voice and his great songs. It's really honest and any guy that can hold a stage by himself with a guitar and nothing else is someone that is going to be around for a long time. I tend to listen to music mostly on my BlackBerry. I think subconsciously you are always inspired by other people. But it's always about recreating your own version.


I have a hard drive that my friend made for me with all my favourite television programmes on that I take around with me. That was a great gift! The shows I enjoy watching the most are Crime Scene Investigation, Come Dine with Me, The Voice and Summer Heights High.


I recently saw Ghost – the illusions and the visuals were amazing. The lead girl Siobhan Dillon was really wonderful – the soundtrack by Maurice Jarre to the original 1990s Ghost film with Patrick Swayze is a classic! I am definitely going to go and see Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre in London. I want to see The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre with Julie Walters when it opens.


I recently saw the American Reunion sequel which was funny. I also managed to catch The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with Daniel Craig. It was a very intense film, with lots of twists. That's what I like about films on the whole. I like them to keep you on the very edge of your seat.

Jessie J is a coach on BBC's 'The Voice'. The final is today on BBC1 at 7.20pm
