Seventeen year old pop star JoJo recently complained on her blogs about the incorrectness of wikipedia.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
I've been reading some of your comments, and though I would answer some of the recurring questions you have been asking. In response to the question of my age, I am presently 17 yrs old. I will be 18 this year, on December 20th. Contrary to the information posted on my Wikipedia page, which has a ton of wrong information, my father is not, and never has been, a blues singer. He just likes to sing, and has a good voice. My mother did sing professionally. She was trained in musical theatre, and was a professional church soloist for many, many years. In regard to the question of my ethnicity,(which is wrong on Wikipedia again) I am Scottish, Irish, English and Polish on my mother's side, and French Canadian, Irish, and Native American on my father's side. And again, contrary to what Wikipedia says, no one hired an acting coach for me on the set of Aquamarine. The acting coach was hired for another actress, but all the leads worked with her. I have been acting since I was 4; did local theatre, and some radio and tv commercials in the New England area, and then national tv shows from age 7 on. I made my professional stage debut, at age 8, in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, in the role of Mustardseed, at the Huntington Theatre. I received my first union card from the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists(AFTRA) at age 10. In answer to the question about my dating Joe Jonas; No, we are not dating. We have been just friends for a couple years now.
There, I hope that answers some of your questions. Hope you all have a great Valentine's Day!
My wikipedia has a lot of wrong info still
Hey, I try to go on my Wikipedia page and change it, so I can put the correct information in, but after spending hours trying to do that; I get kicked off the sight and banned; banned from my own Wikipedia page... Go figure....I guess random people think they know more about me than I know myself. Just to set the record straight, with some more wrong info on the page...my mother's name is not Diana Anne Blagden. It is Diana Levesque, and Anne is not her middle name. We, also, do not live in New Jersey. We did for a while, but, we, also lived in CA for a while.
Also, there is no sequel planned for the movie I did; RV. This is more incorrect information. Also, I have been acting, and had received acting coaching, and training for many years before my first movie role. It is incorrect to state that I had no formal acting training.
Also, 2 of my singles, Leave Get Out, and Too Little, Too Late, both went to 1 on the Billboard Pop Charts.
Another mistake that is stated on the Wikipedia page is that I turned down the Hannah Montanna role because of my hectic schedule. This is not true. I was not interested in doing a television show like that because I did not want to be that kind of artist. I am more concerned with being a legitimate artist; not one created for the captive tween audience, from a television show. They were going to use the same formula that they did with Hillary Duff and her show, and I did not want to be a manufactured artist. I wanted to do it on my own; the old fashioned way; with talent, determination, and hard work, and without a television show, which is fed to the tween masses. This is the same reason I have turned down every reality show that has been offered to me, since I signed my record deal. For me, it is about integrity.
I am in the process of recording my third album, presently. I hope to have it out this fall, but I will be releasing a single before then. I have written alot of new music and I am so excited to share my words, melodies, thoughts and feelings with you.
I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I think she's a decent role model. She acts really mature most of the time, but allows herself to be a teenager and screw up some.
