“I say I’m an entertainer. I obviously entertain people with my personal life, which is not so much fun. But I’m passionate about music, I love to sing, I love to write, take pictures, keep a journal, be an actress, make movies. I just love entertaining people, being that escapism for people.”
Although she plays the “dumb blond” on camera, Jessica claims to have a high IQ. Jessica claims to be a big Shakespeare fan. When she went to London, the first place she went was the famous Globe Theatre.
