    Such a warm, and beautiful spirit. I’m buying this album the morning it’s released! πŸ™‚

    GREAT interview! Love her, but haven’t been feeling her new stuff much. Hopefully the album is good!

  4. SMH December 22, 2011

    I absolutely love JoJo. She just gives a real vibe, plus she has an amazing voice.

  5. lola December 22, 2011

    Jojo is wack and looks like Christina Aguilera. Both of them have that fat, witch face. She is so fake. First she wanted to be all urban, now she’s being pop and rock. Plus, her voice isn’t that great. She’s a good singer, but not amazing or one of a kind.

    @STFU Hating on JoJo. First of all JoJo is NOT fake. JoJo has a beautiful voice. Just because she Changed her sound, doesn’t make her fake

  7. December 22, 2011

    @Lola Stop hating on JoJo. You are always on all of JoJos stories talking s*** about her. Stop clicking on her stories if she is so fake. You are secretly a fan

  8. Kathy December 22, 2011

    Lol, great interviewer, but I bet it hurt him when she said she would like to collaborate and write for Ciara and Rihanna, haha.

  9. WHUT December 22, 2011

    TGJ staff are such embarrassing jokes!!! LMFAO!!! Such obvious attempts to shade with that Ciara, Kelly Rowland Rihanna question!! HAHAHAHAHA!!! and gushing like a prepubescent lil school girl over Beyonce every second in a Jo Jo interview!!! What unprofessional douchebags!!!! KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.

  10. gistre1097 December 22, 2011

    So nobody draws inspiration from Rihanna or Ciara’s vocals? No? Hahahahaha!
    I love JoJo she’s great singer and deserves some shine.

  12. tae December 22, 2011

    I’m glad she said she would write for ciara

  13. JJFAN1814 December 22, 2011


    LOL, NEXT!


  14. NoNo December 22, 2011

    @Lola She’s one of the best vocalists in the world, so sit down. Her tone, runs and timbre of her voice are all amazing, plus her range is brilliant for a contralto. You will deal.

    And great interview. I’m so ready for the album and the RnB songs. And I wonder if maybe Boy1da set something up with JoJo and Drake.

    Jojo has always been a beyonce STAN I’ve followed her career for awhile but hey talent usually recognizes talent LOL can’t wait to hear her new music let’s get good singers back on the radio PLEASE

  17. Lax December 22, 2011

    Well with the beyonce influence and the love from
    the “Grape” she should sale a Million her first week
    we shall see Shes blessed to not have to dig through
    a 100 miles of b/s to get her smile and her work on.

  18. Lax December 22, 2011

    Yeah good singers back that is what we
    need for 2012.

  19. Lax December 22, 2011

    None of these bytches can appeal to the crowd that rih appeal
    to the crowd Rih appeals too because if they do they would have
    to learn how to appeal to the Caribbean Islands , Hole in the Walls,
    Up Town and the Down Town Crowd.

  20. Lax December 22, 2011

    Rih Rih’s Black Ass is at the Right Place
    at the Right Time and its going to take
    some heavy , heavy weight to slow her
    down. To night is the night and good bye
    Tour and here i come Barbados. Rih has
    covered a Milestone and she has many
    things to Celebrate when looking back
    over 2011 and the bad headers on her
    will not stop her Power Moves On to
    Bigger & Wider Pastures @ 23! i wish
    Jo Jo and the rest the Best and chart
    success is up for the grabbing no
    matter how s***** some one talks/write
    about you They say its a Poor Frog who
    don’t praise his own Pond.

  21. Crave December 22, 2011

    omg could u imagine jojo and rihanna on a song together!!! Omg the slayage that rihanna would experiance would be embarrassing LOL anyway i LOVE her voice its like honey .. I always think of her as a poppier brandy which is a huge compliment .. It was soo cute how she was stanning for bey in the beginning and was like we can fight about it! LOL I’m with ya jojo

  22. Well…. December 22, 2011

    I Love the shade he thought he was gonna throw at rihanna and it ended up hitting kelly, shame….

  23. Lauren December 22, 2011

    I LOOOOOOOVE IT! So can not wait to hear more from her. She is amazing!

  24. Theman December 22, 2011

    Why is this site so fixated on Beyonce. Get out of her a**. Even the interviwer is all over her. Sam and him need to both sit down… This interview should focus on Jojo rather than being a knockoff lovefest for Beyonce…

  25. jamelisyours December 22, 2011

    i LOVE JOJO…the fact that she, a true vocalist LOVES BEY proves ppl are just plain IGNANT for not respecting KING B ! i also loved that she said , collab w/Rih & write for Ci …SO smart & realistic lol ! i can not wait for JUMPING TRAINS to finally drop !!! *p.s. i’m glad she stated that there will be plenty of singles…Interscope is known for that, i.e: Keri Hilson πŸ™‚

  26. Theman December 23, 2011

    The things people say on these boards…

  27. soamazing December 23, 2011

    I think she’s great and really sweet, I cant wait for her album, its been about time.

  28. kessa December 30, 2011

    this interviewer is wack. im gettin sick of all the beyonce love – shes overrated. hahaahahahahha he wanted her to diss ciara or rihanna and kelly took the hit instead. HILARIOUS. who wouldn’t want to duet with rihanna shes worked with eminem, justin timberlake, coldplay, drake, nicki, T.I, Jay Z, and now jojo wants to add her name cus she knows dueting with ciara and kelly gets you nowhere. πŸ˜€ i <3 JOJO!!!

  29. Kali January 2, 2012

    Wow, people. This is all enterainment. From where I stand, everyone in this vid(that they chatted about) all are talented! Rihanna has the billboards on lock with whatevre she does! Beyonce is a gueen,diva,fashionist, and a huge talent and part of our generation!. Kelly Rowland is has amazing vocals and music and has underrated for so long but shes an amazing artist! Ciara can dance her ass off and can sing her ass off! IDGAF! looking forward to jumping trains and the collabs w/ bo1 1 da. “S*** to me” (produced by Danja) is dope!..I wonder if she has more song produced bby Danja. And of course Kelly and Ciara are talented! you have to f****** amazing at what you are doing to be in the buisness! It doesnt mean selling out or having a #1 album! PPL are lame!
