It looks like the cat is out of the bag. JoJo reveals that her album title is “Mad Love.” Check out here interview with Malcolm Music where she lets the news out:
JoJo is absolutely positive that every girl knows a fuckboy, but what exactly is a fuckboy?
“We’ve all experienced them,” the 25-year-old talent tells FM. “They’re just the ‘Netflix and Chill’ dude or the unavailable guy, or the ones who kind of make you question yourself.”
The “When Love Hurts” singer also took time to champion the use of birth control, explaining how crucial it is to know what you’re ready and not ready for. “I wish there was an option for men, so the responsibility wasn’t solely on us!”
JoJo also shares her thoughts on gay marriage and social media beefs.
Think âJoJoâ and chances are the lyrics to her debut single Leave (Get Out) will start playing in your mind. Well, newsflash: that song was released 12 years ago, its follow-up Baby Itâs You the same year and the equally-catchy Too Little Too Late way back in 2006. So what has US pop singer JoJo â real name Joanna Levesque â been doing for the past decade? There was a somewhat-public legal battle with her record label, after they left her in limbo with no distribution deal in place to get her songs heard. There were the self-released tracks she put out online and sporadic gigs to keep her dedicated fanbase going. And, finally, came the new deal with Atlantic Records which brought JoJo to London on tour earlier this month. The morning after a sold-out show at Islington Academy, we sat down to breakfast, and had JoJo explain it all. (Read More…)
Take a spin through JoJo‘s home and you’ll get a good sense of just how much the singer has accomplished in her 25 years. On the walls are personalized pieces from noted street artists; her jewelry collection includes at least one epic necklace from friend and collaborator Thundercat; and her jam-packed closet is literally brimming with stories of photo shoots, high-fashion finds, and performance memories. Yes, the “Too Little Too Late” singer has been a chart-topping star since she was 13, but she’s also seen and done a hell of a lot in between then and now, including last year’s comeback EP III. The “tringle,” as she calls it, is a quantum leap from the R&B-tinged pop of her early career, mixing house beats and hyper personal lyrics with the powerhouse vocals she’s been flexing since the start. And, according to Jo, it’s just a hint of what’s to come.
Next week, JoJo heads to Europe for a string of shows in support of III. Leading up to the tour, we took a peek into her closet and chatted about music, style icons, and pre-show routines for our latest edition of Behind the Seams. Check out all the goodness we uncovered below. For a full rundown of JoJo’s tour dates, visit her website.
How would you describe your personal style?
I love to dress in what makes me feel cool and confident. Street, chic, comfort, a dash of fab, layers, mixed fabrics; I like to play with menswear too, and I always have a statement accessory or a special jewelry piece I wear day after day. My nails are another canvas to play on; I like looking at them seeing a design that I dig.
How does your day-to-day look compare to what you wear onstage?
Onstage I like to have a little more skin showing since I sweat my ass off under the lights. I like to have a long jacket to take off during the show. On the day-to-day I dress however I feel. Printed shirts, dope jeans, or leather pants. Always a jacket, preferably long. Jackets have become the staple of my wardrobe.
Who are some of your favorite designers?
Etro, Dries Von Noten, Libertine, Helmut Lang, Barbara Bui.
What are some of your favorite places to shop?
Barneys, Kin, random vintage stores, the Cabazon Outlets, Urban Outfitters for staples like tank tops and some cool one-off pieces.
Who are your icons?
Janelle MonÃ¡e, Joni Mitchell, Cher.
What got you into music?
Both my parents sang and I was constantly around music growing up. I started singing when I was two years old and never stopped. As long as I can remember it’s been my obsession and my greatest love.
What do you like the most about playing music for a living?
The high I get from being onstage and feeling the energy from the audience. The human connection. Music is a universal language.
What’s your pre-show prep routine?
I stretch my body and my voice. I drink a gang of water (hot and room temperature) and do some ab exercises. I pray with my crew. Try to stop freaking out (I get nervous) and repeat an affirmation that I’m meant to be here and by God’s grace all will be well.
Do you have any secret beauty tricks or hacks?
I sleep with my hair in four tight braids, then wake up, spray some Oribe dry spray at the roots, put some serum at the ends, and brush them out and keep it movin’! I always curl my lashes. It opens up my eyes and makes a quick but big difference. Lately I’ve been putting a pump of foundation in my hand with some moisturizer and a little brightening highlighter and apply it all over my face. It’s sheer and makes for healthy looking skin.
Are there any crazy clothing scores you’re especially proud of?
An Etro jacket I got for 70% off at an outlet sale, and a pair of thousand dollar leather pants that I scored for $299!! I loooooove a bargain and tell everyone after I come upon one.
Janelle MonÃ¡e for sure.
Check out JoJo signing her song “Say Love” with kids from the PS22 chorus.
JoJo used this word two times during VH1âs chat with her during our Lift Ticket to Ride event in Colorado over the weekend. And if any pop star knows about triumph, itâs her. The 25-year-old singerâwho exploded onto the mainstream scene with hits like âLeave (Get Out)â and âToo Little Too Lateââhas been through her fair share of hardship. A seedy contract left JoJo in music limbo for seven years, unable to officially release material for her seismic fan base. But thanks to a group of crafty lawyers, she is free. A new album is on the way. She triumphed. (Read More…)
