JoJo’s Journal

November 5, 2007

From JoJo’s Journal: 

Hey folks.  Just stopping by for a minute to give my take on what’s going on in the entertainment world and beyond.  And remember, it’s MY take.  Everybody has an opinion. 


Do you guys remember Amel Larrieux?  She first came out in 1995 as part of the duo Groove Theory, which also included that fine ass Bryce Wilson.  Anyhow, she’s been solo since 2000 but you hardly hear much about her.  She certainly stays under the radar.  She played The Blue Note here in NYC on Nov. 1.  I really like her; beautiful voice and she is physically stunning.  I could not make the show but hit me up if any of you New Yorkers caught her act.  Let me know if you enjoyed it.

Check out the photos of Whitney Houston when she attended the Swarovski Fashion Rocks event in London on October 18.  Just search on the Internet and you will find a few pictures.  Oh my God – she looks BEAUTIFUL!  I am soooooooo happy that our sista’, who is certainly a living legend, is getting it together.  Whitney, I and countless others, love you so much and welcome you back with open arms!  We miss you and the music industry needs you!  These young girls are trying to take your thrown!  LOL!!

There is an interview with Sunshine Anderson in a magazine called “Colures”.  (See below about that mag).  She talks about how she was dropped from her prior label and that it’s been six years since her last CD.  What?  Six years?  She came out that long ago?!  I know she’s been gone a minute but damn!  With all that time passing I would be surprised if she still has an audience.  Well, ya’ll know she does have a new CD out and I recently listed to snippets of all 12 songs and I must say that I found nothing different or exciting.  But you are the judge. She looks fantastic and she is now on Matthew Knowles’ label Music World.  He is a great manager so she’s in good hands.  Remember her song “Heard It All Before”?  That was my joint!

I’m excited about Jay Z’s new CD that’s coming out – American Gangster.  Aren’t you guys?  There is a very good interview with him on a site called  I don’t write for that site so I’m not trying to give it props – LOL!! – but ya’ll need to read the interview.  It’s good.  I love Jay Z.

Didn’t I say last time that Britney Spears is in the news waaayyy too much?  Well, just bear with me a moment.  She went to Heidi Klum’s Halloween party out in LA last week and Britney even looked terrible in a damn Halloween costume!  She looks terrible all the time!  Well, at least her new CD is doing good and climbing the charts.  The best revenge against haters is to be successful.  Right?


If you haven’t discovered it yet, go out and buy Uptown magazine.  The Fall 07 issue has Alicia Keys on the cover and can you say FABULOUS! And what a great magazine!  It is very classy, fantastic photography and great interviews.  The interview with Alicia Keys is enlightening; you’ll enjoy it.  Get it.

Another magazine I recently discovered is called “Colures” and it comes out of England.  I had never heard of it – you?  It too has a very classy, sort of “renaissance” look to it.  And, at $8 it’s a bit expensive for a magazine but worth it.  Janet Jackson is on the cover of the latest issue and, as always, she looks stunning.  There is a 4-page interview with JJ and the accompanying photos leaves you speechless.  I’m a very straight woman but I’ve always said if I were a gay woman Ms. Jackson is the one I would want to sleep with – oh yeah!  She is that fine!  Forties and Fabulous! 


Lets not forget to go and see our man Denzel Washington in American Gangsters when it comes out this weekend.  I know it’s going to be great.  After all, it’s Denzel Washington!

 Just a bit on the sports tip:   

Wow!  The Yankees sure did make some serious changes.  Joe Torre, Alex Rodriquez, Don Mattingly.  Whatever George Steinbrenner wants, he gets.


Oh, before I go, did I tell ya’ll am crushing hard on Jaheim?!  I did?  Oh, my bad.  Well I said it again!  If any of you are friends with him would you please tell Jah that JoJo just wants to hang out with him for one night.  He would not regret it!  No, seriously, stop laughing.

    Girl… this is definintely your forte. Your articles should be published weekly. So many talented people out there but not enough opportunities for them. You need your big break.
