Jordyn Jones Gives RAW Interview


RAW: What was it like growing up in Michigan? What’s farm life like?
JORDYN: Farm life is where you have a million acres around you and you could just run and go on the four-wheelers or we used to have animals, and just get the fireflies at night. They're super fun. I miss is my dad and my brother back home!

RAW: Where’s your favorite place in the world?
JORDYN: It’s either Cabo, Disney World, Dodgers Stadium, or (being in) my bed sleeping.

RAW: What was the first song you listened to that made you think “I want to be a singer”?
JORDYN: When the Frozen movie came out, I was super inspired to be a singer, but before that it was “California Gurls” by Katy Perry, and I have videos of me singing that when I was seven.

RAW: Could you tell us about your new music? Song titles? The vibe?
JORDYN: I’m super excited for people to hear my new music finally even though it feels like it hasn’t been that long, but it really has. One of (the songs) is called “All I Need” and it’s 100% not going to lie, about my boyfriend, Brandon (Westenberg). It’s basically our full relationship. The second song I co-wrote with a guy named Damon (Sharpe). It’s called “Summer”. Like, you’re falling in love in summer, but doesn’t really have a meaning.

RAW: What’s the most important piece of advice that your father gave you? How about your mother?
JORDYN: My dad has told me “no boys” even though it didn't work out his way, but you know, it’s good advice, Dad. Thank you. For my mom, it’s being nice because if it wasn’t for her I’d probably be not a nice person or I’d go Hollywood on, like, everyone.

RAW: Tell us about your alter ego, Snowball, and could you reenact Snowball?
JORDYN: If you guys haven’t seen (The Secret Life of) Pets, it’s a ten out of ten recommendation. Kevin Hart plays the white fluffy nice Snowball, but then he has a very aggressive side and I call it “the hungry side” of the little bunny. I’m going to give you a little play on me being Snowball. At first you’re like (imitates high pitched voice), “Mom can we please go to Starbucks?” and she’s just like “No.” You’re like (imitates aggressive voice), “I’m going to rip your face off! Rawr!  (Back to normal voice) “Could we go to Starbucks?” Of course that’s what I said.

RAW: Who are some of your all time favorite musicians and who are some of your newly discovered ones?
JORDYN: I like Beyonce, Selena Gomez, and then newer ones are Travis Scott, G-Eazy, Kyle, Halsey, and Russ.

RAW: What’s the last movie you saw?
JORDYN: Spider-Man: Homecoming. Best movie ever. Never saw a superhero movie before and now I’m obsessed with watching them all.

RAW: What are some of your favorite foods?
JORDYN: Ramen, french fries, pizza, tacos, and pasta. Bam!

RAW: When was the last time you cried?
JORDYN: I was in rehearsal and it was my new song that hadn’t been released yet. No one had heard that I was going to have new music, and then a person at the rehearsal released the video, and I was really upset. It’s like all that hard work... I won’t get to release it. What if a lot of people notice this video and then it was deleted, and no one really talked about it after three days went by.

RAW: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
JORDYN: I thought you said, “Where do you see yourself in Tinder?” (laughs) I see myself, oh my God, I thought I was (age) 11 for a second. I was gonna say, 21? Okay, hopefully I will have gone on two tours, be in two big movies, have ten hit songs, and a magazine.

RAW: Describe your fashion style
JORDYN: Very edgy, but I can go pretty and glam, or I can just be in sweatpants. Like there are three different things. Like, couch all day outfit, grunge everyday going to the mall look, or like red carpet glam.

RAW: Who was your first celebrity crush?
JORDYN: My first actual celebrity crush was Cameron Boyce. Isn’t that weird? (Editor’s note: We just shot Cameron a few weeks ago. Check out Cameron's RAW shoot now!)

RAW: Where’s the perfect place to take a first date?
JORDYN: I would find out where the girl or guy’s favorite restaurant is and take them there, pay, and go to the movie after or something. I went to Urth Caffe with Brandon for my first date.That was super fun. Now that’s like our place.

RAW: Can you do any celebrity impressions?
JORDYN: (does Danielle Bregoli impression) “Cash me outside how ‘bout that!” I love her honestly she’s literally an idol for me. Even though I’m so positive and everything. I think she’s so funny and so pretty. I just think she’s a character. People love her, even though she’s like that character, but behind the cameras and everything she’s nice. I mean I’ve never met her, but she seems like you have to be that character, and when you get back home with your family... I mean it was because of her mom that she was on Dr. Phil. Now I’m just rambling about this girl. (laughs)ᴿᴬᵂ
