Singer/actress JoJo is a little upset by the comments people are saying, calling her a hasbeen.

A hasbeen at 17? Ouch!

Well, JoJo's fighting back - the singer just posted the following message on her official blog.

She says:

Untitled update 8.8.08
Current mood: determined

HelllooooO!

Just wanted to check in and write to you a little bit… I hope everyone is having a great summer and makig the most of it! My Lifetime movie "True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet" comes on tomarrow (Saturday) at 9 pm EST so be sure to check it out! Right now I'm in Atlanta, Georgia right now putting the finishing touches on my album. I am so happy with how its turning out, and so thrilled to have been able to work with the producers and collaborators that I have. Ive never felt more enthusiastic about a project, and I feel like this speaks to where I am in my life as well as lyrically and musically. Its been such an enjoyable process to assemble this record, and I am anxious for you to hear it and see what you think. :)

But i've got to be a little vulnerable for a minute…. im a bit frustrated! I'm 17 years old, and I feel that people have tried to dismiss me in the industry or have the sense of "Why hasnt she been doing anything? She must be dead". This is pretty sucky! When people havent heard music from you in quite some time, its understandable that they may want to dismiss you as being "done", and its hard because folks dont get to see what goes on behind the scenes for months, sometimes years to put things together, etc. Im about to be a senior in high school, im dedicated to my education as well as my career so it gets difficult to juggle sometimes, but i feel that anything thats worth it takes work. Bottom line, just because Im not in the spotlight does not mean that ive retired (lol). Im so young, and music is my everything. I view my career as a marathon, not a sprint. And i try to do things based on the long term plan, not for financially motivated reasons. Have I made mistakes? Absolutely. Will I make more? Sure! But will I learn along the way, channel it into my music, chalk it up to experience, and come out stronger from it? You betta believe it ;)!

I just want to thank you for sticking by me, waiting it out with me, and growing up with me. Its amazing that I put my first single out when I was 13 and now im just finishing up my third album and Im not even 18 yet! Ive seen so much in a short span of time, and learned to much. Its a blessing, and I promise to not forget it. I vow to put my all into everything that I do and to always represent what I believe in to the fullest. I cant wait for you to read/hear the lyrics to the title track "All I Want is Everything" because it really represents how I feel at this point in my life. I wrote it out of hope, excitement, frustration, and based on my dreams. I think everyone will be able to relate to the feeling. :) Im anxious for you to see and hear what Ive been working on.

Stay up and know that Impossible = 0.

x's and o's

    " I am so happy with how its turning out, and so thrilled to have been able to work with the producers and collaborators that I have."

    Translated this means " I'm so happy to have people that write my songs, tell me what to do, process my voice so it's on key and actually sounds pleasant."

    hahahah loserrr!! shes sooo a hasbeen. eew



  4. 4

    Well. At least she said something. Although, a lot of it was unneeded. Kind of excited about the album! Can't say the same for the Lifetime movie.



  5. 5

    Oh, dear. Hopefully, she can make some more money…so that she can buy a new computer. Looks like her spellcheck and punctuation keys (mainly, the apostrophe and comma) aren't working, on the one she is using, now.



  6. 6

    I THINK SHE'S GREAT AND AT LEAST SHE ISN'T A BRITNEY WASHED UP IN HER EARLY TWENTIES! CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR HER NEW MUSIC!



  7. 7

    Good for her, focusing on her education. That's what these Disney stars should be doing. Not, oh… *taking photos of themselves 1) naked, 2) in wet t-shirts, or 3) in their underoos and sending them to other people.



  8. 8

    First Bitches, Jojo is not has been has been leave her alone she's still young.



  9. 9

    I'm thinking it's more like "never was" as I have barely heard of this person.



  10. 10

    lol at her spelling, Tomorrow like "tomarrow"



  11. 11

    She screwed up passing up on Hannah Montana. Shame on her. It's all her fault we got stuck with that horny little broad Miley as Hannah Montana.



  12. 12

    I don't think she is a hasbeen…it does take months and years to create music as you have witnessed with other artists. She actually has talent give her a break Perez shes not even 18 yet!



  13. 13

    She is only 17, she has her whole LIFE ahead of her to make more music and do more things. People calling her a "hasbeen" when is she only 17 is a tad bit harsh, shes not even legal yet! Just give her some time to grow into her own and prove everyone wrong :)

    I like it when you see that stars can really write well :)
    It's nice, Lily Allen is terrible.

    eeeww i hate herrr!! total hasbeeen! gross!! oh and 1st :) xo

    Re: Debaucherina – ahaha, 'horny little broad' love it.



  18. 18

    I like her. She seems to have a good head on her shoulders.



  19. 19

    Wow, what a hassle to get to write a comment. See the Truth According ToTom where commenting is still easy. I think JoJo meets the Hollywood criteria for success. she has a great profile.

    Re: Sensible – WORD!



  21. 21

    She is so pretty :)



  22. 22

    good for her, very smart of her to focus on her education as well! and she sounds smart and nice, i am curious what her new album is like!



  23. 23

    homegirls gotta learn how to write



  24. 24

    people try to consider her a hasbeen becuase her first album and hit came out when she was super young. but shes taking time for school, and making sure her music is on point. unlike some stars who try to keep putting out the same stuff at a rapid pace, causing us to get bored and start picking on them (hello, miley cyrus). AND IF YOU THINK JOJO CANT SING AND HAS NO TALENT, YOU MUST BE TONE DEAF. that chick has vocals for days.



  25. 25

    Wow, someone needs spell check.



  26. 26

    This girl is absolutely beautiful, vocally gifted, and downright talented. I just think Hollywood is so emotionally & mentally fucked up!!! If you're pulling a Miley, Britney, Lindsay, etc, you're a "trainwreck", or a "popwreck" or a "mess", because of the crazy paparazzi storms, or the fact that they're just overrated and stupid in their personal behaviors. But if a girl, who's only 17 years old, decides to maintain a low-key lifestyle and actually pursue a high school diploma (I hope you're reading this Britney and Paris), they're called a "has been"? WTF, people! Make up your fucking minds! You bitch about the trainwrecks and how over you are about the media frenzy they create with their crazy lives, but when a young starlet lays low you wanna crucify her, too? FUCK ALL OF YOU.

    And for those of you who are so quick to criticize her spelling, grammar, and punctuation, EAT SOME SHIT, will ya? Ok, she's a celebrity. Are all of you STUPID enough to think that celebrity = genius? Singing is her talent. She's not a fucking writer or a blogger. Who cares if she doesn't spell all of her words correctly. Not even Perez proofreads or spell-checks his shit, and "writing" is what he does for a living, no? (at least when he's not too busy copying & pasting TMZ's articles)



  27. 27

    JoJo is right and I'm looking forward for her new movie and music!



  28. 28

    To be a has been, one would have to have been something at some point. What is her claim to fame exactly? What has she been?



  29. 29

    Aaaaw, I LOVE JoJo…
    It's been a while since she's been around but I always assumed she was just chillin and growing up a bit, doing the school thing, so that she could come back as an 18+ KNOCK OUT! :)
    I think she's rad - so haters should knock it off! :)



  30. 30

    She spoke like a true…One-Hit-Wonder. Stop trying. You'll never be as big as you could have been if you would have stopped being a "Serious Musician" and taken up the role of Hannah Montana. Just accept it and move on with your life. I'm sure your so called next album will sell thousands (1,000 to be exact).



  31. 31

    Re: DIJordan – I agree. It's spelled "Tomorrow" not "Tomarrow". Remember Jojojojojo, Tom OR Row.



  32. 32

    Now that she is a has been, she might want to consider going back to school and taking an English class so she can properly write. Just a thought….



  33. 33

    WHY do "stars" blog? Even the (two) intelligent ones end up sounding like morons. This girl is no exception (except of course that her writing clearly show that she isn't intelligent).

    "Stars", please…unless you are an exceptionally gifted (and brief) writer, DON'T blog!



  34. 34

    JOJO ROCKS



  35. 35

    shes smokiiin hot



  36. 36

    Hasbeen…
    no, just kidding.
    I actually like Jojo.



  37. 37

    Even though I'm an 18 year old guy, this girl is no doubt one of the biggest inspirations to me. She is the most talented young lady I have witnessed and cant wait till her new stuff comes out so all u haters can take it back. Im so proud of her for going to college and caring for her education. One of the biggest reasons that i am and always will be a fan of hers is because shes not in it for the money, shes in it because its what she loves. If Jo's reading this, I hope she can realize all the people that do love her, and would take a bullet for her. Keep On Keepin' On babe, I love You!!



  38. 38

    JOJO is not a has been!!!

    besides she's better than Miley Cyrus or Britney Spear she can sing

    And she is so HOTTT!!!



  39. 39

    I hope her voice isn't as altered as they say… Too Little too late's whistle pitch was impressive and with training i'm sure she could learn to do different tempos and such…

    if i was her,
    i wouldn't have wanted to play "hannah montana"
    miley is annoying in the show.



  41. 41

    I likw JoJo. :) .

  42. neeks says – reply to this


    42

    but… she is a hasbeen



  43. 43

    Jojo is def not a hasbeen or a clone. lol she has talent and depth unlike her peers. i cant wait for her new album, and i am glad she is taking the time to grow and experience life without the bullcrap like miley ect. of slutty pics and rehab.



  44. 44

    Oh please, this bitch was prob in a huge depression because she turned down the role of Hannah Montana, and now she sees how MASSIVE it is and how famous she could have been. She's not even that famous, and has been out for YEARS and Miley is already 10000 steps ahead of her! Stupid ho.



  45. 45

    aw shes awesome!

    Re: Andy27 – re: Andy27 "And for those of you who are so quick to criticize her spelling, grammar, and punctuation, EAT SOME SHIT, will ya? Ok, she's a celebrity.

    Awww, did we hit a nerve with you, concerning spelling, grammar and punctuation? GOOD…then my work here is done. lol Oh, and….no, thanks…I don't need to 'eat shit'. I am quite sufficient in providing groceries and sundries into my pantry, refrigerator and cabinets…without having to 'go fishing' into my toilet bowl.
    No, I don't consider celebrity as equaling genius…but, at least, a modicum of knowledge, regarding grammar/spelling/punctuation, would/could never do any harm….especially, if they feel the need to type out their thoughts, for all the World to read. My 13yo son has better social, written and vocal skills, than most of these so-called 'celebrities'.



  47. 47

    I think she's smart and has a good head on her shoulders. She saw that if she chose to be hannah montana, they would lose control over her career and music exactly what happen to Miley. Wow a teenager choosing integrity over fame, its unheard of. Also just because she's choose to stay out of the party scene and wants to be somewhat normal by going to school does not make her a "has been".



  48. 48

    Re: JagPride – She's going to college?? Oh, ffs….who has accepted her? What were her SAT scores? Did she use the word 'sucky' in her college application, just as she did in her blog? Did she, at least, use an occasional apostrophe?
    Believe me…she is in it for the fame and MONEY. At 18 years of age, you should know this by now.



  49. 49

    Seriously, some people are just haters. I don't think Jojo is a hasbeen at all. She has an amazing voice (her talent was obvious even when she was a kid on Kid's Say the Darndest Things). Like she said, things take time. I'm looking forward to her album and even her movie. I grew up watching Lifetime movies, so I never hate when a celebrity I admire chooses to do one.



  50. 50

    A very smart young lady!!! Go get em Jojo



  51. 51

    Re: DIJordan – Yo chick! Shes already been accepted in to Boston College, Boston University, or Northeastern; i hope that settles your weak ass insult at a beautiful,intelligent, and talented young lady. You should feel good about yourself. I am 100% sure that she is all about integrity or i wouldnt waste my time paying attention to her!! Next time you want to start something make sure you back up yo shit with facts! Go Jo, i believe in u!



  52. 52

    Re: DIJordan

    No life?



  53. 53

    Any celebrity shelf life is limited to two years.
    After that, you are a washed up target.
    Right, Fergie?



  54. 54

    Actually Jojo is pretty smart with her albums, not making too many too quickly and oversaturating the market. She is trying to be a long term artist and thats respectable.

    As for people knocking her spelling and punctuation, aren't you some catty bitches. Everyone has typos and stuff on the internet. Hell look at Perez's "What went wrong here" article, where he wrote "fell" as opposed to "feel".



  55. 55

    Re: Andy27 – You read my mind!



  56. 56

    Re: DIJordan – I was just wondering if your 13 year old son also inherited your shitty, negative, holier than thou attitude from you? What a good example you are setting for him.



  57. 57

    Re: JagPride – Oh, isn't that precious….she has her little 'fanclub' backing her ass up.



  58. 58

    i never really liked her music its too ehh. but shes cute:)



  59. 59

    Re: pinklady62090 – Quite the contrary…I have an excellent life, thank you. I graduated high school, received a degree, got married, had a child, worked in the field of my choice (as opposed to 'finding any job that would pay the bills'), and retired at the age of 40 (with enough money to pay for everything in cash, and, to secure my sons trust fund, so that he would never have to worry, a day in his life).

    How about you? No life?



  60. 60

    Re: Nordic Blonde – I was just wondering if your 13 year old son also inherited your shitty, negative, holier than thou attitude from you? What a good example you are setting for him.

    Actually, my son has a finely tuned attitude and grasp of reality. Holier than thou? No, I wouldn't say that. But, he and I both share a healthy respect for knowledge, respect and common courtesy (when it comes to personal preferences and opinions).
    I have no idea what the registered members' age range is, on this site…but, I would rather spend the entire day debating my son, than to try having an intelligent conversation with the poster-children for year round (and I am talking 24/7) school systems.

    61

    I love JoJo, she can actually SING!!! But the blonde hair has GOT TO GO!!! LOL.



  62. 62

    she is a has been. and she cant write.



  63. 63

    I love Jojo.Shes so talented,she deserves to be more famous than that slut Miley Cyrus.



  64. 64

    JOJO YOU ARE A HASBEEN GET OVER IT!! you only have 2 good songs and you won't have more, get over it your music sucks, unless you come with a new album with good music and new sound then you'll be famous, until then…. yu are a hasbeen



  65. 65

    I can't wait until she's 18 and can pose nude for Playboy.



  66. 66

    Why she needs to talk about her age like she is someone sooo special for having a second album and not been 18 yet… Miley did, Hillary did it, that Carter kid, the Jonas brothers, Jesse McCartney and the list goes on… she is not "special" because she is not 18 yet… she is just another wannabe… the only hits she had so far at colabs so she needs to shut it and focus on school and other things… used to like her but now i just hate her… she is trying to ride the Hanna Montana train… not working for ya girl!



  67. 67

    Honestly, I think JoJo is one of the FEW celebrities that has a good head on her shoulders. She is older then Miley and we haven't seen any skanky pictures of her or anything like that. She is also one of the few celebs that want an education. I think alot of teen celebs are just "i dont need school , i have a career" *cough*miley cyrus*cough* So, I am completely 110% behind JoJo. She's been my idol since I was like 10. :]



  68. 68

    Re: Andy27 – right on, dog.



  69. 69

    Re: DIJordan – damn right baby! JoJo for life And DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUVVVAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!! for life. Go Jaguars rep duval to the fullest!



  70. 70

    Re: Andy27 – thank youuuu!



  71. 71

    Re: SoCal
    SoCal - you have NO idea what you're talking about. Clearly you've never bought one of JoJo's albums. SHE WRITES HER OWN RECORDS….JACKASS!!!! You must be a major Hater and a Big Time Loser for leaving such a mean comment and you have NO CLUE!!! DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST THEN HATE SINCE THAT IS ALL YOU CAN DO. She's been writing her own songs since she was 12 years old!!!!!!! AND HER VOICE IS NOT PROCESSED….SHE IS ONE OF THE FEW ARTISTS THAT ACTUALLY SINGS LIVE….NONE OF THE DISNEY ARTIST DO! She is way more credible in the music industry than any of these fabricated acts…..SHE CAN ACTUALLY SING. STOP HATING WHEN YOU HAVE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IDEA WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. It's one thing if you just don't like her….that's cool….it's your choice….But, stop spreading shit that is not true. You must be one miserable person.



  72. 72

    3 albums??
    i thought she only had ONE song!!
    lol!
    && "all i want is everything"??
    of course the greedy bitch wants everything..!



  73. 73

    Re: NikkiS_lovescelebs
    write really well?
    she just wrote tomarrow!



  74. 74

    Who the hell is this person?

    She done any porn?



  75. 75

    Sounds level headed, BUT why the Hell is the 17 yr old MINOR wearing that tight slingy whorish dress?????



  76. 76

    Don't be stupid about Jojo. She's right. She is sooo young. I think it is very wise of her to finish school. School = Cool (h)



  77. 77

    Re: SoCal
    cynical much? or do you assume that of every musician out there without making a fair judgment?



  78. 78

    Yeah, well it's better that she's a has-been because now she can go back to school and learn how to spell simple words like "tomorrow" instead of "tomarrow". Honestly.



  79. 79

    Well.. i have to admit i was quite a fan of jojo.. I always liked her.. Untill i saw her at the dupage county fairgrounds..There was basically around 100 or so people there.. And I have sources in the entertainment bizz here in ill, and i had front row tickets, which i always do.. And i know she could hear me most of the time, screaming her name.. She could hear all of us! There was only 100 or so people.. Well she ignored everyone, and when she was done performing, she refused to meet and greet any fans.. Because she was "too cool" or whatever.. The security that im close to said she was just refusing.. Well, i saw her walking back stage and i told her she was a dumb bitch and it would have taken her 5 minutes to meet all her fans since her turnout was a joke. However, PAULA DEANDA who opened for her.. was a total sweetheart. JoJo, i was disappointed in you! :(

  80. WTF! says – reply to this

    So what she didn't want to sing that crap she didn't want to sing it.
    Certain things were meant to be. Sure she missed out on some money-so what.
    Look how old and worn out Miley Cyrus looks now. I predict she will be a million dollar Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen hobo chic bag lady in a few years. She is young and already looks terrible.



  81. 81

    That's funny, ’cause I just watched Aquamarine (the mermaid movie, starring her, Emma Roberts and Sara Paxton) a few days ago , and I was totally thinking to myself… Damn, whatever happened to Jojo???
