Made a Decision… – 

Feb 26, 2020 – “I am speaking for probably I would say every woman in this industry that your image and your weight is up for conversation, and it’s just uncomfortable,” she said. ”It’s hard enough being a woman. I’m sure a lot of us develop extreme insecurities and disordered eating and really unhealthy thinking about ourselves.”

Because her music wasn’t being released, JoJo said she turned to other outlets for affirmation.

“I felt that how I was must have been not enough, must have been dissatisfying,” she said. “I started getting really (expletive) up, drinking, making out with strangers, looking for validation and attention and looking to feel pretty, looking to feel good, looking to feel worthy.”

She added: “I mean, there were definitely nights that I stumbled out of clubs and that I blacked out and was just completely reckless, did not care … I need to be buzzed to feel OK.”

“I should be dead,” she said. JoJo said she turned her life around because she didn’t want to be like her dad, who she said suffered from substance abuse issues and died in 2015.
