Call Off The Dogs: Jessie J Will Not Remake “The Boy Is Mine”
I know some of y’all were wallowing way down deep in your feelings when Rodney Jerkins announced that Jessie J and Ariana Grande were planning to remake Brandy and Monica’s hit–and apparently– iconic song “The Boy Is Mine.”
I don’t know if Rodney spoke too soon or someone changed their mind. But according to Jessie J, there will be no such remake.
When she stepped out on the red carpet for the American Music Awards yesterday, with her new boo Luke James, she took time out to speak with UK outlet the Mirror, where she debunked rumors.
“No, it’s not true, neither of us have agreed. Sadly, people are believing it. I spoke to Brandy and I was like, ‘no it’s not happening’. Monica and Brandy are the best.”
Well, there you have it. Even though I believe Jessie J would be up to the challenge, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Some things, classic things, just need to be left alone.
