JoJo Interview

By: Sindy

It's been three years since the release of her debut album, but JoJo is back on the scene with fresh tracks and a mature outlook on the future. Find out what she had to say when Sindy sat down to chat with her.

Sindy: Hi JoJo. How it going?

JoJo: Great. How are you?

Sindy: Great! I'm really excited about your next album, High Road. You must be too!

JoJo: I'm stoked. It comes out October 17th and it's great. I worked with a bunch of producers over nine months and recorded 35 songs. I'm just really proud of it.

Sindy: How is this album different from your first?

JoJo: There's a big difference between recording an album when you're 12 and recording an album when you're 15. I've matured a lot - learned a lot. I'm not saying I'm an adult. I'm in no way an adult. But I've learned a lot in the last couple of years.

Sindy: Are you having a good response to your single, Too Little Too Late?

JoJo: No - it's been awful! (Laughs) No - really - it's been really great! I just got the best write-up in Billboard and I just heard I'm number nine on TRL. I have a really good feeling about this album.

Sindy: What's your favorite track on the album?

JoJo: They're all my babies. I love them all! I really love The Good Old and How to Touch a Girl. But really, I'm so proud of the whole album.

Sindy: You've also been in Aquamarine and RV. How does acting compare to singing?

JoJo: When you act, you obviously have to stick to playing one character but when you sing, you can be whoever you want - a different character every song, or just yourself. Oh, and when you make a music video, you always look in the camera, but when you shoot a film, you don't - obviously. But that takes a little getting used to.

Sindy: Do you prefer acting or singing?

JoJo: I like them both but I prefer singing right now. It's what I'm all about.

Sindy: What was it like to work to work with Robin Williams in RV? Was he always cracking you up?

JoJo: Robin Williams is a great man. He really is. He's just such a great role model, you know? He's hilarious - of course - but he's also really active with social causes. And he's just so down-to-earth. I'm friends with his daughter so they both came to my video shoot. He was totally cracking up the camera guys. It was hilarious.

Sindy: Are you planning a tour once the album is released?

JoJo: Yeah, we're definitely going to tour. We're not actively planning it yet but there will definitely be a tour at the end of this year or the beginning of next year.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
