Let’s make it happen! Back in the early aughts, when “Girl Power” reigned supreme, JoJo was one of many pop princesses to storm the scene as a solo artist, along with the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore, and Jessica Simpson, among others.
Each was fab in her own right, of course, but we can’t help but wonder what would have happened if they’d teamed up to take on the world as one singing, dancing supergroup. So when JoJo, now 24, stopped by Us Weekly‘s office recently to promote her new “tringle,” we asked her to dream up her perfect musical combo — and boy, did she deliver.
The “Leave (Get Out)” singer picked four mega-talented ladies to join her imaginary (for now!) girl group: Pink, Mandy Moore, Lil’ Kim, and Christina Aguilera. (Incidentally, three of those four have already worked together, on the Moulin Rouge song “Lady Marmalade.”)
“I actually want to do like an interesting version of ‘Candy,'” the former tween star explained, referring to Moore’s 1999 hit single.
JoJo also dished to Us about her fashion choices from that era, admitting that she made some less than stellar choices on the red carpet. “Like, my TRL looks were pretty outlandish, looking back,” she said. “But they were dope when I was 13.”
Watch the video above to find out which ensemble she deemed “unacceptable,” what she remembers about working with Robin Williams on the 2006 movie RV, and which Aquamarine costar she still counts as a friend. And check out the clip below to see how she coined the term “tringle”!
