LOS ANGELES — from www.xbiz.com – Digital Playground contract girl BiBi Jones, one of the breakout stars of 2011, announced her retirement from adult performing in a video she posted on YouTube today.
In the homemade video, the 20-year-old native of Oklahoma explained the reason for her decision.
“I’ve been extremely unhappy the last couple months,” Jones said in the emotional message.
“I’m not happy with me. I need to look at the big picture here and everyone knows that porn doesn’t last forever and family is No. 1. And it hurts my family a lot, so I’m doing it for them and I’m doing it for me. I’m doing it for my health. I guess I’m saying that I’m getting out of the business.”
Jones continued, “I was promised a lot of things whenever I got in the industry. I was so excited, I was so happy. But nothing’s happened, and I can’t do it anymore. I don’t want to let down anyone. And I’m sorry if I’m making this very dramatic because I wasn’t in the industry for very long at all but I’m only 20 years old and the earlier I get out of this industry the better it’s going to be.
“And I have nothing negative to say about porn or the people involved in it. I fully respect everyone. And I’m happy about the friendships that I’ve made in it, but it’s not for me. I’m going to start fresh and try to be a better person, I’m truly sorry to Digital and to Manwin.”
She said in the video that she had been reading “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle for the past couple months and shared a passage from the book that talked about “taking responsibility.”
Here’s what the cards had to say for her: The fact that the “draw” card in BiBi’s current reading is “The Hermit” is quite paradoxical. Unlike the July 23rd Leo, the cabin-in-the-woods, quiet Hermit enjoys his solitude and does some of his best thinking in the late night or early morning hours over a cup of coffee.
This doesn’t sound like the garrulous BiBi at all, so my suspicion is that BiBi, whose presence on the ‘Net has been controversial to say the least, is being told by a higher authority to tone it down.
Like most female porn performers, BiBi has her Svengali, a master manipulator, and there may be more to this relationship than a professional one. The fact that BiBi’s in more beds than a mattress tag, also means this person really has a hold on her, and he may be the one exhibiting the traits and wisdom of The Hermit. It’s hard to tell in a “cold” reading.
Either way, my guess is the “hold” on BiBi is something incriminating that, if revealed, would really put her on the outs with her family and friends. Again, this is only an educated guess. Perhaps a showdown’s coming in the month of February over another BiBi incident that has yet to play out, but, trust me, it will happen because gossiping and raising eyebrows is in BiBi’s DNA. She can’t help herself.
But the King of Swords, who’s the gunslinger in such confrontations, suggests that this is more than a possibility. This is the test-of-wills guy who takes the misbehaved child to the woodshed, so it’ll be interesting to see how BiBi gets in more hot water over the next couple of months and what’s done about it.
By Spring I see her making a couple of major announcements.
