The 'Domino' star admits life on the road can feel like living "in a bubble" so she ensures she has the right people by her side.
Jessie J has confessed that she always attempts to ensure that she is not surrounding herself by "yes men" because she wants to stay grounded.
The 'Who's Laughing Now' told the Daily Star that touring and being in the studio all day can seem like "living in a bubble" and never wants to lose herself.
She said: "You live in a bubble when you are travelling, touring and in the studio or on stage. You wake up and don't know what country you are in and you have people around you saying: 'You are amazing' and 'let me do this or that' and you completely lose yourself.
"It is going to affect you, even if you don't want it to. You have to be careful that you don't surround yourself with yes men. I need people who say 'You are being an idiot today, shut up'."
The singer is currently in the studio working on her new album, and the follow up to her debut 'Who You Are', and is starring on The Voice UK alongside Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue.
Yesterday, Jessie admitted she would be away from her Twitter account more then usually during her time in the studio so she can stay fully focussed.
