PJ Harvey won the prestigious Mercury Prize this week for her album 'Let England Shake.' But number 1 pop hitmaker Jessie J has confessed that she hasn't heard of the singer and her 20 year-long career in music, and is unsure what the Mercury Prize is.
"I didn’t see the ceremony, no, I was jet-lagged after a flight back from America so I had an early night. I live in a bubble. Could I be up for a Mercury next year? Possibly. I should probably find out what it is before then." the singer told NME Magazine.
