British singer Jessie J has shaved off her head for Comic Relief, and debuted her new look on Friday night’s The Comic Relief Show.
The Price Tag singer looked fabulous and happy as she stepped out after the shave, saying she ‘feels free.’ She then urged the public to donate to charity.
As for why she chose to shave her trademark hair, she said after visiting a sex trafficking and abuse charity,
‘I can’t even begin to comprehend how a child should feel like that. I think of the family members that I have that are a similar age and the thought of them thinking that they don’t belong, that they are all alone…’
Holding back tears, she said: ‘I’ve never been abused. I’ve nothing to be afraid of. Shaving my head is the smallest thing I could do to give back.’
Her shaved head has generated more than £500,000 so far.
She then took to Twitter to thank everyone who donated:
