They say hind sight is 20/20…or is it?

R&B pop singer Joanna "JoJo" Lavesque reveals she was originally offered the role of Hannah Montana, but she turned it down. Given that the role eventually went to the now uber-famous Miley Cyrus, does the singer have any regrets about her decision?

"No regrets. No regrets at all," JoJo tells Extra. "Yeah, they [Disney] offered me the role…[But] it’s not really what I see for myself."

In 2004, JoJo rose to fame with her platinum-certified self titled album and has since starred in several TV and big screen projects. She currently stars in Lifetime’s True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet in which she plays a hard-partying "It" girl who’s overdose ends up on Extra.

But the 17-year-old is eager to emphasize the differences between her character and her true self, saying "I still live in New England. I’m an east coast girl ’til I die and I still live with my mom."
