She has quickly risen to fame.
But she wasn't always a YouTuber...
Her time in the spotlight began on a very popular TV show.
via: imdbYou guessed it... Dance Moms.
The star made her first appearance on Abby Lee Miller's show back in its 4th season.
via: imdbThe show, which has skyrocketed the likes of Maddy Ziegler to fame, saw us introduced to the energetic and bubbly Jojo - and she certainly made an impact.
But it wasn't long before she found a second act...
Her most popular tracks include "Boomerang" and "Kid in a Candy Store."Her music fame has even seen her tour the globe. Can you imagine how popular this teen must be if her tours are outselling other music artists?
And just to give us a little hint of how much dollar she really makes...
Oh, and let's not forget...
Jojo also rocks a very signature style.

The star revealed that her huge bows have a deeper meaning for her.
via: Getty ImagesIn a video interview, Jojo admitted she's been obsessed with bows since pre-school, but as she's gotten older, they've simply gotten bigger and bigger. She also went on to say that to her, bows symbolize "power, confidence, believing-ness."
But there's no doubt that in spite of her confidence, the teen has received her fair share of hate.
Her hairline is usually the thing people joke about.
Many people have pointed out how often she pulls her hair tightly back into a side pony.

Several people raised this point.Several viewers of the music video said that the fact that people's mind would jump to the conclusion that a monkey character was blackface was racist in itself.
While many people think she could have done more with her platform...
Several agreed that by labelling the makeup as "Blackface" it's "furthering the degrading insult."

Jojo has now responded to the accusations.
She penned a lengthy post on her Twitter and Instagram.
She continued by denying claims that she isn't a supporter of BLM.
As for why she blocked people on her Instagram account...
After issuing her statement, one follower said her post "didn't look like an apology."
To which Jojo clapped back with: "I didn't do anything that needs an apology.... this is me clearing things up."
