Jessie J was left red-faced and soaking wet after prematurely celebrating reaching number one in the UK singles chart but jumping into a hotel pool!
The singer mistakenly thought that she had taken out the number one place, before being told by a friend that Flo Rida had actually topped the countdown.
Jessie was on tour in Thailand when fans on Twitter.co m advised her that her hit track Domino has claimed first place on the iTunes chart- prompting the thrilled and slightly tipsy star to jump into the pool!
Unfortunately for the singer she had only topped the iTunes pop countdown, not the official UK chart- a fact her friend had to tell the dripping wet and now mortified star!
Jessie J told UK chatshow host Jonathon Ross of the event, "I was in Thailand (when I heard it was number one). Sitting in our pyjamas, sitting by the pool, having a glass of wine. I went on Twitter and just read 'you're number one on iTunes' and so I freaked out and thought 'I'm gonna jump in the pool.' (I) jumped in the pool, realised I was a bit tipsy, couldn't swim and panicked and everything just got really heavy. So I got out of the pool... put Domino on and was dancing by the pool and then one of my best friends said, 'Babe, Flo Rida's number one.'"
She went on to add, "I was number one on the pop chart, not the official chart. So I was just standing there freezing cold, naked and I just said, 'Shall we just go to bed?'."
This story only makes us love the singer more!
Eventually Jessie got the chance to celebrate her song's success for real, when the track finally topped the official chart last month (January).
