Black Swan clues point to JoJo Levesque
During the episode last week, the clue package for Black Swan reflected on past mistakes she committed in terms of manoeuvering her career. JoJo has very openly spoken about all the times she made the wrong decisions after she was suddenly propelled to superstardom. Another clue package had revealed the all the adulation she received led drove a wedge between her and a close relative.
JoJo was managed by her mother Diana Blagden in the past, this was until she went to Hollywood. She didn't have her mother by her side anymore and this was the time she had the biggest opportunities come her way. However, she turned it all down, including the titular role in 'Hannah Montana'. The 'HM' reference was a part of the Black Swan's week 6 clue package with the word 'Montana' etched on a knapsack.
JoJo had also been embroiled in a battle with the record label she was signed to back in 2009. She filed a lawsuit against Da Family Entertainment saying they put her music career in limbo and sought $500,000 in damages. The suit was dropped after the issues JoJo has was resolved but the solution didn't last long. In July 2013, she once again filed a suit against the label asking to be freed from their seven-year contract.
Fans rallied behind her and started the #FreeJoJo movement online which gained a lot of traction. In 2014, JoJo was finally freed from her contract after which she signed a deal with Atlantic Records. The fan petition was a part of Black Swan's week 2 clue package. One of the packages also said she had appeared in a fantasy film which could be a reference to JoJo's appearance in teen fantasy film 'Aquamarine' in 2006.
The most telling clue about the Black Swan came from Cluedledoo where he said " Black Swan has covered a monster." In 2008, JoJo had recorded a cover of T-Pain's song 'Can't Believe It'. For those who don't know, T-Pain was the Monster on 'The Masked Singer' Season 1. Whether JoJo is the Black Swan or not, we will only find out once she is unmasked. In the meanwhile, let us know what do you think about these clues in the comments.
'The Masked Singer' Season 5 finale will air on May 26 at 8 pm ET on FOX.
