* OldShame: "I think I sound terrible [on my older songs] -- as a vocalist, I think it's horrifying," JoJo says with a laugh. "I love to perform those records live, because I have a different perspective on those records now. At 13, I didn't even have my first kiss yet. What the fuck was I talking about? 'Get out'? Get out of where -- my playground?"
