London: Singer Jessie J has revealed she wrote a letter for pop star Justin Bieber to show her support for him during his turbulent period earlier this year.
The 'Bang Bang' hitmaker said she felt the need to support Bieber, 20, because of the immense pressure he is under and the attention his fame brings to him, reportedly.
"I just felt like it was my duty. I hand-wrote it, old school. I was just like, 'I'm here, you're amazing.' He's young and he's got so much pressure on him. It's easy for people to comment when he's having a photo taken of him, but you don't see what we see.
"When it's just a picture of us, you're not seeing the hundreds of people pushing you, kicking you and hurling abuse at you. Sometimes even the people you may frown upon, whose behaviour you may frown upon, they're the ones that need the most help," she said.
Jessie, 26, eventually made the decision not to post the letter as she felt it might be inappropriate to send it to someone who she doesn't know.
"I just didn't think it was my place. I know people who know him, so I could have got it (the letter) to him. But instead I just made sure his people knew I was available to speak to m as I have been to many artists," the singer said.
