Most important lesson Young JV learned from sex video scandal

The first two weeks following the leak of his sex video scandal in 2014, singer Young JV recalled, could only be described as "a living hell." He got depressed. He couldn't get out of the house and couldn't even bring himself to read all the texts that had his phone beeping nonstop. He turned down gigs---that was if they hadn't been already canceled. But it wasn't all bad, at least in hindsight. That rough patch in his life, JV realized, only made him stronger and more committed to his craft. "There was nothing I could do about it, anyway. All I could do is move on. So, I told myself, 'I will strive to be a better singer, songwriter and performer. I want to be the best perso...Keep on reading: Most important lesson Young JV learned from sex video scandal.....»»
