In a special MSN fan chat event, JoJo answers fan questions about her self-titled new CD and how she made the leap from unknown to ‘TRL’ sweetheart. The chat takes place on Monday (June 28) at 7pm ET/4pm PT. Check it out at chat.msn.com.
JoJo fielded questions from MTV.com’s ‘Total Request Live’ mailbox, including what celeb she’d like to tour with, what age she realized she had the talent to sing, her favorite TV shows, and advice for other young aspiring artists. Check out the responses at mtv.com.
JoJo was on ‘Total Request Live’ on Tuesday to promote her new album and perform ‘Leave (Get Out)’. She also talked about touring with Usher, music she’s listening to, her first concert, and more. Read on for a rough transcript.
JoJo spoke with Steve Jones of USA Today and talked about her current tour with Usher. “I’m coming out as a new artist, and it’s a great opportunity, especially with the audience (Usher) has,” she said. “It’s been great. I was really surprised the European audiences are so embracing. People have been grooving and singing back when I’ve asked them to.”
She’s not even old enough to drive yet but Blackground’s latest signee’s first single ‘Leave (Get Out)’ is already making a huge impact on radio. I know what you’re probably thinking, a new young female singer on Blackground…. but don’t worry JoJo isn’t an Aaliyah clone. In an exclusive interview with ReactMag.com, JoJo discusses her upcoming tour with Usher, the maturity in her lyrics, and her plans for when she turns 18.
JoJo posted a message to fans on her official website March 25th. She writes, “Hey party people! Oh my goodness, I just saw my video on TRL! Wow, that was sooooooooo cool! It’s just strange because all my life, I’ve watched MTV and now I’m actually on there! It was soo cool! I loved how the VJ’s talked about me! Wow, it was so embarrassing when they showed the footage of when I was younger. I was really crazy! I wish someone would have told me how foolish I was back then! It seemed like everyone was really feeling the video, and I’m just so excited! I got like 30 calls from my friends and family at the same time! They were just screaming! I’m so happy that they’re proud of me! Make sure you tell everyone to go out and vote for my video! You can go to MTV.com and click on TRL or call 1800-DIAL-MTV (1800-3425-688) and vote for it! Wow, my heart is still beating out of control But, I probably shouldnt get too excited, I still have homework to do! Too much love- JoJo. P.S.- Still having guy trouble. Why must they be so confusing?”
