JoJo College Bound, Says Not Putting Career On Hold

Instead of sitting around, waiting for her record label legal issues to unravel, R&B singer JoJo has something else in mind…college. The “The Way You Do” singer, who shot to fame at the age of 13, has enrolled at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. She writes on her page, “After much consideration and research, I have decided that Northeastern University is the place for me! In the past week I’ve taken tours and met with students and professors of other Boston based schools, and now that the time to commit has come, I’m happy with the idea of being a student at Northeastern. They have a wonderful cultural anthropology program (which is what I am interested in going for) as well as a dual major option in International Affairs/ Anthropology. I’m so excited!” So does this mean…JoJo is putting music to the way side. Not at all she says She adds: “I am not going to put my career on hold, however. Progress is being made right now in (record label) Blackground’s legal/contractual negotiations that have been holding up the release of any new music for months now. But I am happy to say that it looks like things are about to (finally) get rolling. Whhhhewwww.!! Since I feel the need to cover all my bases, I think it is essential and beneficial for me to eventually have a college degree. My long term goal is to gain a doctorate…. but I gotta take it ONE step at a time!” According to JoJo’s website, the new album is titled “All I Want Is Everything,” and it’s scheduled to drop later this year.
