JoJo Siwa Responded To People Who Said She's "Changing" Her Appearance To Look Mature On TikTok

"I love who I am!"

JoJo Siwa wants to set the record straight.

The 16-year-old YouTuber and dancer recently defended herself after being accused of "changing" her looks on TikTok to look more mature.

In a TikTok, JoJo explained why she has been showing more of her natural side lately, aka not wearing her signature hair bows and glittery attire on the app:

"Recently, I've shown myself looking different. Not the classic rainbow, sparkles, and side ponytail with a JoJo bow," she wrote.

"I've been hated on for years for dressing 'young' and acting 'childish'," she continued.

"People think this is me 'changing'...," she wrote, with a shrug.

"LOL, NOPE!" she clarified. "I love who I am! This is just me at night or in the morning!"

The video, which she called a "PSA," came just days after JoJo addressed criticism that she needs to "act her age."
