    English pop sweetheart Jessie J has revealed that she had a stroke when she was 18. Whoa. Wait. What?

    The singer said that she had written the song "Who You Are" after having "just had a minor stroke. I thought that I was never going to get better. I feel so lucky that I was given a second chance at life, so every day when I am able to do this, you have no idea how amazing it feels that I'm so lucky to be onstage and singing and living my dream...I appreciate every day that I am able to live my dream."

    Jessie was also diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which can cause an irregular heartbeat.

    She has battled health issues, and she rules. Lurve her.
