One third of La La's entourage, Po Johnson, recently did a photoshoot for "PYNK" magazine where she talks about being an artist, who she's dating....if anybody, her life in front of the cameras and accepting herself for who she is. And although Po comes off as the silly family friend in La La's latest reality show, she does have a life of her own and wants to venture out as a solo artist who can be compared to the likes of Cee-Lo or the group, No Doubt.
However, until her solo career flourishes, Po Johnson exudes extreme diva in her photoshoot for "PYNK" magazine. So I will say the chick is versatile if nothing else. Check out some more photos from Po's photoshoot spread as well as some excerpts from her interview when you click on that "Read More" button below:
On her love life:
"I'm not dating anybody, I'm not seeing anybody, I'm not fucking anybody, I'm not sexting anyone. I am on pause in regards to a relationship zone. I’m very much married to music. I don’t even have the time to be emotionally responsible, and I feel bad, but it is what it is."
On living on camera:
"Once you expose yourself for everyone to see, it's like walking around naked in front of your lover for the first time. Why do you need to be nervous the second and third time?"
On accepting herself:
"You have to be like, “Fuck it, this is me. I like crawfish and crabs. I’m 5'4''. I’m from the south. I had a stuttering problem. And I want to be a fucking artist. My name is Po. Fuck you if you don't like it.” Once you let those inhibitions go, everything else is irrelevant. I owe it to the audience that's watching; I owe it to all those little girls; I owe it to all those people who feel like geeks and weirdos, I owe it to them to let them know that this is cool. You don't have to be a part of the masses. What everyone sees on TV is me celebrating the fact that I've owned that. I'm not going to apologize for who I am, and I'm not going to apologize for who I want to be."
On her music:
"It’s always been funky, but poppy and fun — very much teen angst. Everything I've always wanted to say, I'm going to say it through my music. If you take punk, pop and the streets, and put it together, that's what my stuff sounds like. Think of Cee Lo as a female artist or No Doubt, but a lot more urban.
I am not signed to anybody right now, so I feel like this is a good time for me to be uninhibited. In regards to artistic limitations, I have none. I want to be very honest about who I am. As eccentric, crazy, and out of the box as I am, I'm still very relatable. What's the point of doing it if you're not relating to anybody?"
You gotta love Po's straight forwardness (if that's even a word) and I'm loving the way she's looking in these photos, but what are your thoughts on the pics and interview? You know I'm listening!
