Jessie J has shaved her head for charity. She showed off her new bald look at the recent Red Nose Day telethon, as part of Britain's Comic Relief festivities. "It's the weirdest feeling... It feels so liberating," she said, giddily.
Jessie raised over £500,000 (RM2.36 million) for the cause after offering to shave off her long dark hair, and admitted the drastic haircut—and money fans paid to will her on—had really stunned her family, who were backstage. "Everyone's crying. My mum's back there. My mum's crying with happiness," she said.
She also took to Twitter to thank her fans who contributed to the charity, writing, "I did it! Thank you to everyone who is donating!"
The Red Nose Day telethon highlights included a live performance of One Direction's 2013 Comic Relief anthem One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks). Harry Styles kicked off the song wearing a comedy red nose, while Louis Tomlinson celebrated the big gig by dying his hair red.
