"I actually don't read anything, because I feel like the haters really like to hate out loud, [and] that people who love sometimes love quietly. So I don't really listen or look at anything. [But] in general, f--- the cynics. Go be cynical ... I'm having a good time. Like, who would you rather hang out with? That cynical dude or, like, me with my laser beams?"
JoJo when she released her legendTary mixtape "Can't Take That Away From Me".
"“The only way out is through.” These words stick with me because during this transformative, uncertain, and trying time, I feel that the only choice for me is to keep on pushing forward.
I’m so thrilled to present some new music to you! As confused as I am about the current situation with the actual album, I can only imagine how confused you must be too. I often speak vaguely about what’s going on because I want to take the high road and not throw anyone under the bus. As tempting as it is to go public with every single detail, I’m trying to stay professional.
But, my fans have been waiting way too long and at the end of the day- I’m a singer! A songwriter! An artist! It pains me not to be sharing what I love with those who want to receive it. It’s a really crazy thing when your career, your livelihood, and the thing you love the most is out of your hands. In releasing this mixtape, Im affirming that even though some have tried they CANT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME. What is THAT? My voice, my spirit, my drive, my dreams. As you listen to these songs, I hope that they make your head nod, your mind tick, your emotions move, your belly laugh, and maybe elicit a “stanky face” or something Lol."

Why is being a loner characterised as a 'social disorder'? It makes me never want to speak to anyone again. It makes me annoyed to be labelled as 'antisocial'/ socially anxious. I am in fact very comfortable in social situations, i just have a truthful and realistic view of the meaning of friendship and relationship-That you cannot get on 'really well' with everyone, you cannot even really 'like' everyone (though most people pretend to).
I always wanted to be a starving artist but I just liked food too much.
