Jessie J hates her new car

By Andrea Petrou on June 1st, 2011

Jessie J hates driving her new £44,000 convertible.

The ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ hitmaker was given one of the top-of-the-range cars by her record company but is having trouble working the Mercedes because it is so much more complicated than the vehicle she was driving before.

She told The Sun newspaper: “I gave my Ka to my dad. I’ve now got a brand new Mercedes SLK, but the only thing is I can’t drive it. My Ka was like a go-kart, but with this I’m a mess. I don’t know how to use the radio.

“I try to indicate and I spray water at people and I’m not a fan of the heated seat because it feels like you’ve wet yourself.”

Jessie’s label Island Records hasn’t always been so willing to see her enjoying extravagances, with the 23-year-old brunette revealing earlier this year that they cut off her credit card after she went on a huge shopping spree.

She explained: “I went shopping and bought £600 worth of bags and my company cut me off because they thought somebody had stolen my card!”

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer meets with her judge in a bid to keep her out of jail.

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer has met with her judge in a bid to keep her out of jail.

The troubled star is due in court later today to say if she will take a plea bargain in her alleged felony theft of a $2,500 necklace from jeweller Kamofie & Company.

Her lawyer, Shawn Holly, met with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz – who is hearing the case – and Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers yesterday (09.03.11) in a bid to convince them to revise their plea deal of six months jail time.

A source told website “Holly is trying to use the fact the jewellery store owners sold the surveillance video of Lindsay to keep her client out of jail, or at least consider greatly reducing the six months that the District Attorney is seeking for probation violation.”

Earlier this week it emerged Kamofie & Company had sold the CCTV footage of Lindsay in the store on the day of the alleged theft for profit, which it has been claimed could work to her advantage.

A source said earlier this week: “The owners of the store’s credibility is on the line, and going to be scrutinised. The price of the necklace is going to be revisited again.

“For Lindsay to be charged with a felony, the necklace had to be priced at over $900.

“Holley has an excellent argument that the owners could have inflated the price of the necklace to the authorities.”

If Lindsay doesn’t take a plea deal, her case will proceed to trial, and she will face a much longer sentence if found guilty, as she will be classed as a repeat offender.

The 24-year-old star’s legal troubles all stem from a 2007 Driving Under the Influence arrest, and in January she completed a 90-day court ordered stay in rehab.
