Jessie J drinks boiled chickpeas to maintain her singing voice.

The 'It's My Party' hitmaker has revealed her unusual method for looking after her vocal chords, explaining that she regularly guzzles down a concoction of liquid vegetables.

She told The Sun newspaper: ''I boil down chickpeas and garlic and drink that straight -- the house smells lovely.

''The way I look at it, a footballer wouldn't play in flip-flops or dip their feet in acid and then expect to get to David Beckham's level. My voice is my living, so I'll be looking after it.''

The 25-year-old singer says stardom hasn't changed her since shooting to fame with her debut single 'Do It Like a Dude' in 2010, and while some may brand her a ''diva'', she insists she isn't.

She added: ''I'm the most un-divaish person you'll meet. I'm never rude to people and I am always on time.

''I have always been the first on the dance floor. Before fame people thought it made me a good laugh, now people point and call me an attention seeker! I'm very aware of the way people can view me but I'm very aware that I have to just enjoy my life.''
