Jessie J - Jessie J Is Scared Of Sleeping In A Tent

British singer Jessie J has a phobia about sleeping in a tent after her father terrified her with a prank during her childhood.
The Price Tag hitmaker was one of the highlights of the U.K.'s Glastonbury festival last weekend (24-26Jun11), even inviting a seven-year-old girl onstage to sing a duet with her.
She admits she adored performing in a field full of muddy campers - but she won't be attending any festivals and sleeping under canvas after a joke by her parents backfired.
The singer tells Q magazine, "I can't do the tent thing. But d'you know what it is? When I was a kid, my dad used to make me and my sisters sleep in a tent in the garden to man us up a bit. And all I have is a memory of my dad weeing (urinating) in a bucket outside, him pretending to be a bear, me getting really bad heat rash and eczema, wood louse everywhere, my mum taking pictures from the house going, 'Hi kids!', and being really eccentric. So I think that's why."
