Bisexual pop star Jessie J is 'on cloud nine' after being nominated for three BRIT Awards.

The UK artist is up for gongs in the categories of British Female Solo Artist, British Single and British Breakthrough Act at the UK's music award ceremony next month.

On hearing the news this morning, the Do It Like A Dude singer thanked her fans, tweeting: '3 Brits Nominations?! I'm on cloud 9! It was only last year I was the "Critics Choice" and no one really knew who I was! My fans are unstoppable. I am so grateful!'

Speaking to the BBC at the official nominations bash, Jessie J, who was awarded the Brits Critics' Choice prize for 2011, said she 'would never have imagined this last year.'

'I remember sitting at the table and thinking, next year I want to be voted best female. Even if I don't win, it's just being nominated and the feeling of that.'

However, Jessie has some strong competition, with Adele and Pixie Lott both up for best British single as well.

Ed Sheeran received the most nominations though, with nods in four categories.
