I am really disappointed in her decision to do this......As she would get much more money if she was filmed having a Brazilian done.

I don't see what the problem is. She will be raising a lot of money for charity if she does it. The more publicity she gets, the more money she will raise. If she doesn't do it, as a lot of people on here seem to want because they personally don't like her, the charities will be worse off. Charities are losing out in the recession anyway so everything helps. Good for her.

I have no problem with her helping out a charity, but she's so overexposed in general it's crazy.

Her management wouldn't allow her to for a while and she is supposedly making it "bigger than ever imagined." I have no idea what that means, but good on her. She said she will wear wigs when she has to for shoots and tv and stuff, but she wants to wear it bald for as long as she can. I wonder if she will change her mind if she sees she has a funny shaped head. I mean, she already has quite a large forehead.
its just i was watching `laserlight` the other day and noticed she has another tattoo behind her ear that i didn't like the look of. i thought well at least she can cover it up with her hair and then i remembered about her shaving it all off. i do agree that it is good of her to do this for charity though, people can be too cynical sometimes and its not like she needs the exposure.

Generally I don't begrudge a celeb doing anything for charity but shaving your head? Why? There's many a cancer sufferer, myself included, who would prefer she kept her hair, others don't have a choice and have to go through excruciating cold cap treatments. Even if she donates her hair to a wigmaker for the NHS...it's still a strange one to me.

I'm sure she could have given much the same amount personally without a whole load of publicity and a look at me stunt which is guaranteed to keep her in the papers long after the donation is made. I mean, good on her for wanting to raise the money but I can't help but feel it's at least fifty fifty with the attention she'll receive.

Well, she is supposed to pick a few different charities and the head shave money will go to one, but her own money will go to others. I mean, it isn't like she hasn't given before. She gave to GOSH last year on her own and now she is giving the opportunity for others to give as well through an event that is interesting. Think about it, people who don't like her might donate just because they want to see if she will look silly bald, and people who do will want to help out.

The whole thing came about because she was at the hospital visiting cancer patients and she talked to them about it and a lot of them said losing their hair was one of the most difficult things and she realized that she uses her hair as a security blanket, so why not cut it off? It's bold, but good luck to her.

If they could sew her mouth up to, that would be just dandy.

What a surprise. The video starts with a few people shouting 'I love you' and Jessie rushing to them with a microphone to ask them to say it again so that everyone can hear. If she was any further up herself, she would disappear completely.

So what?! She is enjoying her success! I'm sure you would have done the same. All of you who are moaning! She was loved when she was barely know, but people don't like success when it's not theirs. Pathetic!!!

Our cultural expectations have sunk extremely low for a mediocrity like Jessie J to be as popular as she is. It's pathetic.

I like her music but I am sick of her beyond belief at this point. She's inescapable and has been since Price Tag.

she couldnt hear them because of the in-ears. she didn't say "say it again" she said, "what did you say?" anyway, why is that all you got from this video and not her talking about amy?

this is so true. i was noticing it the other day on some of her old youtube videos and the stuff she did with sbtv and some underground shows. comments from two and three years ago say things like she is the future of music and they dont know why she is so underrated and they cant wait till she gets big and she is what music needs, but now a lot dont like her.

even with her album, people say it isn't cohesive and a lot of it is filler and they don't like the songs, but they are the exact same songs she was singing 3-5 years ago and everyone loved them. all of the songs that were on her album except maybe one or two were posted online and praised, but as soon as they are on the album and a year goes by suddenly people hate them. most of the songs on the album were voted on by her fans to be put on there. it just doesn't make sense, tbh ive read things like she has changed and her music is reflecting that, but they are the same songs, with the same lyrics, and the same backing tracks. not sure what's different.

THIS! Anyway I'm sure that the haters has just a bigger mouth but they are not as numerous as they think !!!

the story about the girl who was ill is sad..no matter how much anyone may hate Jessie..if it does raise any money then I think that is good
The only thing for me is - her shaving her head doesn't make me feel I want to give money - but maybe that is just me?

Really tired of these attention-seeking bints; Kesha, Gaga and now Jessie J.

If they had half the talent Adele does they wouldn't need to do these pathetic publicity stunts.

Well done to her! I'm not her biggest fan by no means but she is definitely braver than I am. As others have said, it genuinely suits her also.
