JoJo is opening up about a super messed up time in her life.
The brunette beauty admitted that she was required to go through some drastic dietary changes in order slim down, and was even asked to inject herself!
The performer confessed:
"I was under a lot of pressure from a company that I was previously working with and they wanted me to lose weight fast. So, they got me with a nutritionist and had me on all these supplements and I was injecting myself."
As a result of these intense practices, the 25-year-old said she wasn't eating that much:
"It makes your body only need certain calories, so I ate 500 calories a day. This was the most unhealthy thing I'd ever done."
The gorgeous gal spilled that she went along with the unhealthy decision because she was afraid her album wouldn't get released if she didn't.
And even though JoJo followed the orders she was given, her album still wasn't released.
The artist explained that she felt awful after the injections and the supplements:
"I gained all the weight back. I felt terrible about myself. And I was upset that I even subscribed to the standard that they wanted me to be at."
Plus, the whole thing was pretty traumatic:
"I had to unpack some of the damage that being on that weird diet did to me. I couldn't work out. I didn't feel strong."
We can only imagine. So horrible.
But, we're glad that right now JoJo is happy, healthy, and touring with Fifth Harmony!
Plus, watch her open up about criticism and unrealistic beauty standards in the full interview (below)!
Pregnant Keshia Knight Pulliam Vehemently Denies She Was Unfaithful To Ed Hartwell — 'Time Will Always Tell The Truth'
Keshia Knight Pulliam isn't taking these heinous allegations lying down!
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, Keshia got candid about her crumbling marriage to former football player Ed Hartwell. The emotional convo comes on the heels of Ed surprising Pulliam with a divorce in addition to denying paternity of her unborn baby.
According to K.K.P., Mr. Hartwell is a LIAR and the real cheater in this dramatic saga. Apparently the Cosby Show star couldn't keep quiet over E.H.'s slander now that she's an expecting mom as well as a woman who takes great pride in her "character".
Speaking on the scandal and the pain it has caused her, Keshia confessed:
"I don't know if it's the hormones… no, it's all of it, because it's fresh. And it's hurtful. And I knew I couldn't be silent, because this isn't about money. This isn't about fame. This isn't about social media likes or follows. This is about my character — my integrity as a woman being attacked — and that's not OK."
Dayum. It sounds like the actress is going through so much right now.
To make matters worse, Pulliam argues her ex was the unfaithful one and that she regretfully decided to give him another chance:
Russell Wilson is melting hearts everywhere!
On Tuesday, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback was speaking at an event for his Why Not You Foundation, when he brought up Ciara and her sweet son!
The NFL star was raving about his biggest inspirations and — after talking about his faith and his family — the football player confessed that his new wife and his two-year-old stepson, Future Jr., have really had a huge impact on his life!
The athlete gushed:
"She's been an inspiration since day one—since moment one. And her little one, too, just watching him. I was saying to somebody the other day being a stepfather is one of the most loving things you can do. You really learn how to love love, especially when it's not yours."
The 27-year-old continued:
"You realize that every kid matters in this world. Every person matters, every child matters, every heart matters, every soul matters, every mind matters.. That's why we're here honestly, for situations like that."
Watch the tender moment in his Facebook Live video (below)! The sweet stuff starts around 14:14!
Ellie Goulding is NOT in a good place at the moment!
Per the report, Goulding wants to give fans the BEST show possible so she's sidelining herself until she makes a full recovery. The beauty hopes to bounce back with a combination of exercise and natural remedies.
An insider revealed to the mag:
"Ellie's body clock is completely out of sync and she has found herself lying awake in bed most nights unable to get to sleep. All the traveling through random time zones has messed with her system. She just can't get to sleep at night, and even when she's back in England the insomnia is sapping her energy. She's worried about it as she doesn't want to be tired before going on stage. She's a professional and wants to give her fans the best performances possible."
Aww! That doesn't sound fun at all. It's nice to hear E.G. is taking the time to reset, especially considering Heath Ledger's death was partially caused by exhaustion and the pills he took to cope with insomnia.
Luckily for Ellie, she's doing all she can do to be back at the top of her game:
"Ellie's had a couple of weeks off now and is hoping she can beat her insomnia through exercise and natural remedies."
Here's to hoping Ms. Goulding overcomes her health issues ASAP! Get better, girl!

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna just can't quit each other!
On Wednesday, Rob decided to re-follow Blac on Instagram following their epic fight this past weekend. The social media olive branch comes on the heels of rampant speculation over the duo's relationship status and future nuptials.
While Kardashian has yet to re-post all the gushing photos he once shared of Chyna, this recent development is a good sign for the pair. It also confirms previous reports suggesting this blow up was just a passing thing opposed to the beginning of the end.
We can't help but wonder if the momma's attendance at Rob's grandmother's birthday party on Tuesday night helped speed up their reconciliation. Now that B.C. is pregnant, Kim Kardashian West and the other Kardashian gals have really rallied around her — we wouldn't doubt if they encouraged the sock mogul to patch things up with his baby momma.
Here's to hoping these two can keep up the good will for the sake of their baby — that's what really matters!
