The 'Do It Like A Dude' singer tries not offended by the rejection and says, 'To even have the opportunity to write a song for her is still incredible.'
British pop sensation Jessie J is refusing to feel depressed after having her song submission for Britney Spears' new album rejected, insisting she's simply grateful for the opportunity to write for the superstar. The singer/songwriter has become hot property in recent months since storming the European charts with her hit singles "Price Tag" and "Do It Like A Dude", and she was invited to send in a track for Spears' upcoming release "Femme Fatale".
Jessie J's tune failed to make the final cut - but the pop newcomer is far from upset. She tells MTV News, "She probably had every major songwriter in the world write a song for her... To even have the opportunity to write a song for her is still incredible. As a songwriter, I'm still taking baby steps... It was a good song though."
Jessie J hasn't given up on the track altogether, but she admits she might struggle to convince other stars to record it - because it's all about Britney. She says, "I may try and pitch it to someone else, but it was actually called Being Britney. So, it's actually hard to pitch it. It was a really cool song, but it is what it is; it happens for a reason."
And she still adores Spears: "For me, one thing I love about Britney Spears is she is Britney Spears - no one can come and try and steal her path, her lane and that's what I love about her. That's what the song is about: 'I'm the s**t'."
