Since Jojo Siwa recently became a Certified Gay Icon™, I figured a brief explainer on who she is might be helpful to inquiring minds.

oomf went to a jojo siwa interview and sent me this LMAOOO

Background: Jojo Siwa rose to fame originally because she was on Dance Moms as a sprightly 11-year-old.

Now she's 15, however she wishes she could be 13 again. Relatable.

When your 13 you wanna be 15..... trust me tho when your 15 you wanna be 13

Anyway, after Dance Moms she become a YouTuber. Almost nine million people subscribe to her channel these days.

And now she is in the midst of becoming your next fav popstar. This is her song "D.R.E.A.M."

Jojo is known for a few things.

1) For wearing a bow in her hair every day.

2) For her extremely tight side ponytail (also worn everyday) ***Trigger warning for people who have sensitive scalps.***

In addition to the things I just mentioned, Jojo Siwa is surprisingly tall. She's 5'9" , which most people did not realize until it was ~revealed~ (someone mentioned it somewhere).


This information about her height sent people (myself included) into a tizzy. She's 15!!! That's tall!!!

Other than vlogging and singing and dancing, Jojo is a merch queen.

Whatever merch you want she has. LUNCH KITZ (basically Lunchables) Yah she has that.

Dolls? Yes. There are dolls.

Bedding? Yeah, duh! Her bedding is displayed here, in her actual room, which she actually has decorated like this.

Tbh she's makin' bank and I'm jealous!

In sum, here is a performance that I think really encapsulates Jojo Siwa. It's from last week when she was on Live with Ryan and Kelly.
