Fifteen-year-old singer JoJo, who caused a mini-scandal in October when she was spotted at L.A.’s Hyde Lounge, says her visit to the hot spot was totally innocent.
“I didn’t know it was 21 and over,” she told PEOPLE at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles. “It’s a freakin’ restaurant and I was there with my mom and two other underage friends. I had milk and cookies! I wasn’t drinking alcohol.”
