JoJo Gets Hot & Heavy in Music Video for ‘Disaster’ (VIDEO)
We’ve been anxiously awaiting the video to her brand-new song “Disaster” — now the wait is finally over! In the rocked-out vid (complete with a back up band), JoJo gets hot and heavy with a hot biker boy, played by Rafi Gavron.
“Kissing someone I had just met that day was…uummm…nerve racking!” she tells Celebuzz. “But, I pushed my butterflies to the side and went for it. Rafi made me very comfortable and took any pressure that I was feeling off my shoulders.”
“In choosing our leading man, I wanted it to be someone that was genuinely a rough-around-the-edges kinda guy,” she says. “Manicured ‘pretty boys’ needed NOT apply. I had seen Rafi Gavron in Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and thought he was a great actor and a natural choice for me. He embodied the edge and rugged sexiness that I wanted my guy to have. I wanted him to feel a bit like a bad boy from Boston, and although Rafi is from the UK, he pulled it off perfectly.”
Fans remember when she was just a 12-year-old aspiring singer who took the world by storm with her hit single, “Leave (Get Out),” but this is a very different girl we see before us — fierce, feisty and sexy!
With a mature makeover, a new label and edgier music, its a big change from her formerly squeaky clean image!
The new single is off her upcoming album Jumping Trains, which she says is “pop with an anger management problem — Aggressive, a little rough around the edges, little crazy. But it’s met with an honest, transparent vulnerability.”
