Jesy has been teased mercilessly ever since she first attempted the accent, but she's since explained that it's a big misunderstanding - and one that she finds seriously annoying.
The singer previoustold the Huffington Post that the noise she made was something like "bardegne", which is something the band say when they're feeling confused.
She explained: "The fan edited it as though it was my Jamaican accent, I actually do a Jamaican accent! That's not even a Jamaican accent, they just cut off my accent and said that was my Jamaican accent."
What can we say - we think Jesy would make a great Sebastian.
