Jessie broke down in tears when doctors broke the news that she could never again put on a pair of high heels after she suffered a crippling foot injury, forcing her to scrap her remaining summer tour dates. Jessie spent the summer wearing a surgical boot and relying on her bedazzled crutches after breaking her foot in multiple places during concert rehearsals in June.
After finally having the cast removed in September, the 'Who You Are' singer is slowly recovering, but admits she feels "broken" by the experience and its aftermath. Jessie told Britain's Fabulous magazine, "I feel like a broken superhero. I want to go out and take on the world, but the bones in my foot don't want to make friends ... I cried when I was told that [I can't wear high heels].
Jessie continued, "I'm not the most curvaceous girl in the world and so heels make me feel sexy. And though I do love a trainer and a brothel creeper and a Dr. Martens boot, there are times when you need a heel! What about my wedding day?! And when I go out I might not get into clubs because they'll say, 'Nah, she's wearing trainers!'"
