Los Angeles: ‘Price Tag’ pop star Jessie J has shaved off her hair for a Britain charity event Comic Relief. She has managed to raise over 500,000 pounds.

"It`s the weirdest feeling. My mum`s crying with happiness," quoted the 24-year-old singer as saying.

Jessie J said she wanted to raise funds by going bald because it will last longer than just a five-minute stunt.

She immediately took to Twitter to thank her `followers` on the micro-blogging site.

"I am so thankful to everyone who has donated at Red Nose Day 2013 (March 15) and supported me tonight! My heart is filled with happiness! Let`s make a change," she tweeted.

The star also posted a photo on her Instagram account, calling for fans to continue donating.

"I did it. Thank you to everyone who is donating," she added.
