Jessie J has hit out at reports she is at being monitored by doctors following fears for her health.
The singer - who has previously spoken of how she suffered a minor stroke at the age of 18 - has attacked the media for making a "joke" of her health branding their claims "lazy" and "untrue".
In a statement she posted to her Twitter account, she wrote:
"Can I be totally honest for a minute?....
"I was in and out of hospital with REAL health scares my whole childhood.I have a irregular heartbeat I've had all my life&I suffered a minor stroke at 18...
"Music was&always will be my way to inspire&prove to myself I could get better&give me hope when I was young. Songs like BWR don't hide that
"Every interview I did when I 1st bought my music out I was asked how I pulled through&kept;going through the health problems I had when I was young & I always said 'Because I wanted to prove you can'
"The media supported that I represent so many young people that suffer in silence&are;dealing with illness but still have dreams just like everybody else...
"Then I go on #thevoiceuk & stories are like boomerangs the media tries to throw them away but just keep coming back. Lazy. I am sure I have read the 'health scare' story about Cheryl, Tulisa, Kelly the list is endless. Its an easy believable but untrue way the media works.
"But I will say this. My health is a very important part of my life & I don't take lightly to the media making a joke about it. I have made huge sacrifices to making sure my body and mind can deal with my life & I am happy I am healthy & I am trying to make the UK proud.
"So to the media, next time you think what negative story can we write today. Go and visit the kids at your local hospital & write about how brave & scared & inspirational they are to let them know they are not alone. Would definately make for a better read.
"For everyone saying ignore it. No I won't. We have to stand up for what we believe in. The media should not be allowed to write untrue articles. If no one ever says anything, it will NEVER change."
The star has recently been in the US promoting her music, and is currently a coach on The Voice.
> IN PICS: THE VOICE RECAP
Jenny Jones - A singing barlady who had previously overcome meningitis, she sang 'Mercy', much to Will.i.am's and Danny's delight. She opted to go with Will.i.am, but their battle raised the question of which panellist was following whom, when it came to making their team choices.
Teenagers India and Pixie - An incredibly sweet pair, they said no one liked them so they had to stick together, and they couldn't imagine how anyone does this on their own. All four judges wanted them on board, they opted for Jessie's influence. All pictures: BBC
John James Newman - brother's in Waterloo Road, father's in Marmalade... after his rendition of Don't Worry Be Happy, Danny's his coach now.
Sophie Griffin - From Northern Ireland, seemed more anxious about impressing her hero Danny O'Donoghue than getting through with her rendition of American Boy, a song whose original version was produced by Will.i.am. "I've queued for hours to see you, and here you are front for me," she told Danny. "I love you so much, I think you're amazing... wow" ... It wasn't Danny who turned round, though, but Will.i.am.
Ben Lake - Got his (first) big break on Jerry Springer The Opera. Channelled his inner Shirley Bassey to belt out a theatrical version of I Who Have Nothing, but sadly nothing that impressed the coaches. "I thought you were a female to start with" said Jessie. He appreciated the warmth of the audience, though, and said he'd keep going.
Emmy J Mac - Children's dance instructor, sang Put Your Record On. Although Will.i.am and Tom both wanted her, she opted to go with Danny, after a strange Cilla Black 'Blind Date' round-up from Jessie.
Harriet Whitehead - The hippy in her class, she belted out The Non Blondes' What's Up like her life depended on it, but the chairs stayed still. Danny was tempted, but he told the others, "I already have one like her."
Jaz Ellington - He's going to take some beating, after the performance he gave moved the judges to tears.
Lindsey Butler - Said The Voice was the first thing she thought about in the morning, and the last thing at night. Tom Jones responded to the Elkie Brooks-like lilt in her voice on I Don't Walk To Talk About It, and she was on board.
Ruth Brown - Choir singer from London, with a big-voiced rendition of When Love Takes Over. Ruth had previously explained how she was singing for her father who died only a few months ago, and Tom was sufficiently moved to bang the button as she hit her big note.
