The full version of all-growed-up JoJo’s “Disaster” video is finally here, and it’s another entry in the “young, destructive love” category that’s been a recurring theme in music videos lately. But rather than committing armed robbery like Britney or doing every drug imaginable like Rihanna, JoJo - who covered RiRi at a Hard Rock gig last week – gains the strength to walk away from her dangerous biker boyfriend before any real damage is done. Watch it below.
JoJo – “Disaster”
JoJo shared with us how she picked her on-screen love interest, Rafi Gavron. “In choosing our leading man, I wanted it to be someone that was genuinely a rough-around-the-edges kinda guy,” she said. “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.”
She also says of the kissing scene, “Kissing someone I had just met that day was…. uummm…. nerve-racking! 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.”
“Disaster” will appear on JoJo’s third album, Jumping Trains, due out early next year. How does it rank against Britney and Rihanna’s videos about good girls breaking bad? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook.
