Jessie J's Music: British Singer Doesn't Like Listening To Her Own Songs

British singer Jessie J became famous by recording catchy pop songs, but one person is not jamming to hits like "Price Tag" and "Domino" when they hit the airwaves: Jessie J herself.

"I don't like listening to myself sing," she said in a recent interview with BBC Radio 1. "It's weird listening to your own song, you'll be in Burger King or a theme park and you cringe."

Born Jessica Ellen Cornish, the UK singer has a successful career as a singer/songwriter. Her 2011 album "Who You Are" went multi-platinum in the UK and hit No. 11 on the Billboard 200. Expected to release a second studio album later this year, Jessie J is also credited with writing hit songs for other artists such as Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A."

Jessie J isn't alone in her discomfort in hearing her own voice. Veteran rocker Eric Clapton spoke about listening to his own music in 2010, revealing, "I hate my singing. It all sounds like I’m 16 years old from Surbiton."

Both Clapton and Jessie J spoke about the artists that they do enjoy listening to, however, with Clapton naming Ray Charles, and Jessie crediting Rihanna.
