Weekly Music Video

This week it's Save My Soul by American singer JoJo. Her full name is Joanna Noelle Blagden Levesque and she started out as a child star, appearing on TV talent shows. At 12 she signed with Blackground Records and released her debut single Leave (Get Out) in 2004 aged 13, then her debut album JoJo. Leave (Get Out) and Baby It's You featuring American rapper Bow Wow were JoJo's two most successful singles from the album, Leave was No 1 in the US and No 2 in the UK. Not That Kinda Girl was the the 3rd single from JoJo but it wasn't released commercially in the US.

In 2006 JoJo brought out her second album The High Road, which also did well. 3 songs were released from the album, Too Little Too Late, How To Touch A Girl and Anything. The best seller was Too Little Too Late.

JoJo ran into record label problems while trying to release her third album and was set to release it through Interscope Records but that never happened. She eventually filed a lawsuit against Blackground and Da Family but the case was later dropped and she signed a new deal with Atlantic Records in 2014.

While JoJo has only released 2 studio albums to date, she has brought out 3 mixtapes- Can't Take That Away Fron Me (2010), Agape (2012) and #:LoveJo (2014). #LoveJo was available as a free download from her Soundcloud. She also released the single Disaster in 2011 and several other promotional singles including In The Dark (2010), Demonstrate and Andre (both 2012).

In addition to singing JoJo acts. Two of her most well known films are Aquamarine and RV. She also appeared in an episode of the new version of TV series Hawaii Five-O.

JoJo is now 24 and has just released her latest EP Tringle. Well, I think the EP is called III but the 3 singles released together are called a "tringle". Her 3rd studio album is due for release soon.

I'm glad to see the return of JoJo. :) She's a good singer and I've been hoping she'll bring out a new album for ages. I remember waiting for Jumping Trains (the name of her third album at one time) to come out but it never did.

Save My Soul is one of the singles from Tringle. The other two are Say Love and When Love Hurts.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).
