Bisexual pop star Jessie J has revealed she will shave her head live for next year’s Red Nose Day charity telethon.

The ‘Laserlight’ singer took to Twitter to announce the news yesterday (13 September).

She tweeted: ‘I am SO excited and honored to be able to finally officially announce I will be shaving my head LIVE for you ALL to watch in March 2013 for @rednoseday 😀 #letsraisesomemoney.’

Earlier, the Voice mentor told her 5.7 million followers: ‘A year ago I said I’m gonna shave my head for charity…

‘I have spent a long time making sure that when I do shave my head I raise as much money as possible for charity.’

The British singer urged her Twitter fans to follow the official charity, and make ‘next year’s the BEST & most memorable’

Referring to her global smash hit Price Tag, she said: ‘Most of all it is ‘All about the money’ (This time) 😉

The 24-year-old first said she would shave her head after meeting kids suffering from serious illnesses.

Donations to Comic Relief’s last Red Nose Day in 2011 reached over £74million ($119m, €91m), the largest total reached on the night in the event’s 23 year history.

The next Red Nose Day will air on 13 March 2013.
