With over 2 million followers on Instagram and over 99 million views on YouTube, there’s no doubt that Jordyn Jones is a social media star. The singer, dancer, actress, and model chats with us about being an internet celebrity, how she got her start, and her best selfie tips.
Q – How did this all start for you?
A – I’ve been performing since two – starting with dancing, baton twirling, and doing gymnastics. When I was twelve, I moved out to LA to pursue a career in dance. Then when I was thirteen, I got into singing and rapping as part of a girl group called “The 5 LP’s.” After that I appeared on season one of Lifetime’s Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. After the girl group broke up, I started to pursue my solo career.
Q – You juggle a lot of titles: model, dancer, singer, actress, YouTube star — how do you find balance for it all?
A – I do it all with the help of my manager and my mom. The former keeps me busy with incoming work and my mother helps me prioritize my tight schedule. I also make time for friends and family in between work and school.
Q – Any other hidden talents?
A – Boxing. I took it up recently and it’s a great exercise. It keeps me in shape for performances.
Q – Favorite moment of your journey so far?
A – My favorite moments so far have been becoming an Elite Protégé for The Pulse on tour, which is a dance convention and opening for Demi Lovato in New York last year in front of 15,000 people.
Q – With over 2M followers, it’s safe to say your IG game is pretty strong. Any tips for the best selfies?
A – Lighting is key as well as flawless makeup. Also, be sure to rack up a few shots so you have several different options.
Q – How would you describe your personal style?
A – It’s a combination of chic and edgy; but when I’m lounging around the house, you’ll find me in leggings and oversized hoodie.
Q – Who do you look to as a style icon?
A – Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
Q – What’s next for you?
A – I’m about to release my next music video titled “BRUH.” I will continue to record new music and am gearing up for some concert dates this summer. I also just signed a deal for a new jewelry line and have some acting gigs in the pipeline. Stay tuned!
