STORYTIME. When I was younger, I LOVED me some JoJo. I remembering singing Leave Get Out to all my pals...trying to convince them I am JoJo and JoJo is me (it didn't work). I even went to a "celebrity" themed birthday party as JoJo ( I wore a floor length coat with faux fur trimming...idk why...it felt right?). I even forced my friends to make JoJo music videos on our old school camcorder (I seriously hope those videos never resurface). Basically, I thought we were meant to be besties (#jojoandkaykayforeva).
I eventually grew out of my JoJo obsession (somewhat), but there was one dream that I would forever have. In JoJo's "Baby It's You" music video, she wore a purple and green cropped jacket with "JoJo" embroidered on the back. I had to have my own. Well, I finally got my JoJo inspired jacket....about 10 years later. And, boy it feels good.
I leave you with this inspirational quote...
"Can somebody explain to me
Why everybody is trying to be
Living like a celebrity
Doing what they see on MTV.
Ice is cool but I am looking for more, simple things is what my heart beats for."
- JoJo "Baby It's You"
ps. JoJo commented "Werk It" on my photo of this jacket one time (and I died). So nothing else matters anymore.
