Bisexual pop star Jessie J says she wants a makeover because she’s sick of looking ‘like a transvestite’.

‘I started to look like a cartoon character with the fringe and the catsuits,’ the British singer told Grazia magazine.

‘I ended up looking like a transvestite. I want to change my hair, change my style. I want to be allowed to grow.’

The Voice coach also denied accusations that she’s a diva, claiming the most extravagant things she’s asked for is a scented candle and a lava lamp.

Jessie J is set to take to the stage at Buckingham Palace for Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee celebrations alongside openly gay music legend Sir Elton John.

Speaking about the royal gig, the Laserlight hitmaker said: ‘When I got the letter asking me to perform, I felt really proud.

‘It’s a proper letter from the Queen’s secretary. I’m keeping it in a memory book. It’s written on this lovely thick notepaper. I keep feeling it.’
