Jessie J has opened up on how she's coping in the wake of her miscarriage.

The singer, real name Jessica Cornish, shared last month that she was "heartbroken" after being told there was no heartbeat at her third scan.

The 'Price Tag' hitmaker hadn't publicly disclosed the pregnancy and explained she had been trying to have a baby on her own for a while as it's "all [she] ever wanted".

Captioning a video of herself and a friend taking a rickshaw ride around New York City, the 33-year-old wrote: "Still not myself. Still cry myself to sleep some nights. Still working it all out. Still fighting. Not quitting on my happiness or myself. This year was phew. *Heavy sigh*."

However, she also vowed to continue to work on her own healing.

"But I will keep climbing out of the sadness, my happiness is my responsibility not anyone else's.

"I will not be putting bandaids on the problems and heavy feelings but really feeling them and healing them. Gotta practice what I tell everyone else to do in these damn songs."

She went on to thank her friend for their support and "24 hours of crying, laughing, eating".

She told her social media followers that she would be going through with the gig despite her grief, stating: "I have done 2 shows in 2 years and my soul needs it. Even more today.
