    Jessie J is clarifying a few things when it comes to her sexuality.

    The 26-year-old singer took to Twitter earlier today to post a lengthy message in which she blasts the haters and defines her sexual orientation.

    "The hate on my TL is uncalled for and ridiculous!" the Brit beauty wrote. "I never lied about my sexuality, I never labelled myself, the media and some of the public did. I said almost 5 years ago now. I have dated girls and boys. Quote me! Which I had! Am I denying that...?No! I was young and I experimented! Who hasn't? Not with just this topic, but anything! It's part of life! No lies there."

    Jessie went on, "So happened I was becoming famous at the very same time and felt pressure to tell everyone all my business that really looking back was really no ones to know. I fell for a person who happened to be a girl. Every other relationship I've had has been with a man. My record label didn't care and it wasn't part of my launch! Then I was asked in an interview back in the day about relationships, first time ever, and I was honest and then BAM it took over, the word bisexual before my name on almost every article I read? Like I had to say it when I introduced myself? It was crazy. Instantly I was boxed. But at the same time felt I was put forward as spokes person to break out of those same boxes? Weird. Who made it a big deal? Me? No. The media? Yes. I'm not looking for sympathy I am just being real."

    The "Domino" singer added that she's learned to keep her relationships private now in order to "keep my sanity."

    "I apologise to anyone who is offended by me calling dating girls a ‘phase' but I have to be honest with me for me. And for me it was. What else do I call it if I no longer have a want for it anymore?" she wrote. "I'm talking for me remember. Not you. I didn't generalise, I didn't say bisexuality isn't real. It is for some and some people grow up dating both men and woman forever. And that's ok. And some don't. Simple. And I don't have any reason to lie? Should I have lied and said I am bi, because I'm not, yet isn't that worse than telling the truth? How would of people have reacted then? Please tell me what I have done wrong here?"

    Jessie reiterated she loves fans of every sexual orientation and thanked fans for all their support. "I did and still do stand for love who you love, whichever gender that is," she wrote. "And I will continue to stand for it and just not act on it because I don't want to. It isn't who I am. I see my fans becoming who they are and it's amazing! Whatever sexuality they chose, or have chosen, love is love. Everyone has their own journey and story, and mine can't go how you would rather it go. I have to live for me."
