JoJo celebrated her 16th birthday with fans in New York City at Caravan on December 14th. She told TheShowbuzz correspondent Poppy Harlow she doesn’t feel like an adult yet … more like a young lady.
On whether she feels like a woman now being 16:
I don’t feel like a woman. I feel like a young lady. I’m just trying to hold on to my youth. I don’t mind being young. I like to be young. I like to be fun. I’d like to hold onto that. So maybe next album when I’m 18 or 19, I can explore different parts of myself. I feel that with every album you’ll hear growth and you’ll hear maturity.
On the new album ‘The High Road’:
I only got to write one song on this album. I wrote three on the first. It’s just a struggle between the artists and the label, just like with everyone else. As I get older, I’m asserting my independence, my authority more, so I’m going to continue to do that.
