JoJo Siwa reveals her struggles

Jojo Siwa, a 17-year-old American dancer, singer, actress and Youtuber has recently opened up to People magazine about her LGBTQ journey. The “Dance Moms” star revealed that she doesn’t like to label her se*****ty. She said, “I still don’t know what I am. It’s like, I want to figure it out, I like queer. Technically I would say that I am pa*****al because that’s how I have always been my whole life … just like, my human is my human.”

Jo Jo Siwa came out as pa*****al in January this year by posting a photo of herself on Twitter wearing a shirt that had “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever,” written on it. However, the fans of this young star started speculating that JoJo is coming out way before she actually did, this was the result of Siwa’s TikTok video in which she was lip-syncing Lady Gaga’s pride anthem “Born This Way,” and sometime after that she also teamed up with a group of LGBTQ+ TikTokers and danced with them in a video to Paramore’s “Ain’t It Fun,”

Soon after her coming out as LGBTQ, JoJo Siwa got a lot of support from her fans but at the same time she also received various negative comments, Siwa told in the PEOPLE interview. She said, “I never should have done that. I was thinking that all the comments were going to be nice and supportive, and they weren’t,” she says. “A lot of them were, ‘I’m never buying your merch again. My daughter’s never watching you again.’ I couldn’t sleep for three days.” She further stated, “I don’t want people to watch my videos or buy my merchandise if they aren’t going to support not only me but the LGBTQ community.”

According to Siwa, the couple first met on a cruise ship. She said, “I told her my whole spiel that I tell everyone when they ask me my life story. She goes, ‘I could have Googled that. I want to know your life story. You just told me about your career. I want to know about you. And I was like, ‘No one’s ever asked me that before,” Siwa also called herself “Ky-se**al”

During her interview, the young dancer who is famous for her singles “Boomerang” and “Kid in a Candy Store.”  revealed that she earlier wanted to be a surgeon, however, she loves being a pop star even more.
