Jessie J Taking 'Solid Break' From Social Media

Jessie J announced Thursday that she’s taking a hiatus from a social media.

“Starting my new year with some unexpected heavy personal stuff has only made me want to be more present in my life,” the pop star explained in an Instagram post. “Spending more real time with people I love and some time with myself.”

Jessie J didn’t offer specifics about the “personal stuff” but it’s known that her longtime bodyguard died suddenly at the end of December.

“When sadness hits it’s important we embrace it, so it doesn’t define us and it’s for sure surfaced some emotions and things I need to work on with all my attention and love,” she wrote.

Jessie J told fans she is taking “a solid break” from social media “for a while.”

She added that she wants to “live in the moment as much as I can, and not through my phone.”
