I was typecast as a diva because I`m female: Jessie J

London: Pop star Jessie J says she felt typecast on the reality show `The Voice` because she was female.

The 25-year-old singer said his co-judges - Tom Jones, will.I.Am and Danny O`Donoghue, used to come late on the show but they never got such tags.

"The diva thing (routinely turning up late to film) on the show made me laugh, because [which female presenter] hasn`t had it? I spoke to Tulisa about it and Kelly Rowland and Nicole Scherzinger, I know all of them. They all had the same thing.

"No-one spoke about Danny, Will or Tom when they were late, but we were all late on some days. Like we all are for work sometimes. But it`s just one of those things - it is what it is," she said.

The `Wild` hitmaker also discussed her opinion on women in the music industry, saying, "You know, as a woman, it is tough to get to the top ? like to get to that respected level in this industry and in any industry I think.

"Like, I`m sitting at the same awards ceremony tables. I`m going to the same massive meetings. I`m performing at the Olympics with all these guys."
