Jojo Siwa recently celebrated her first Pride event, and the whole thing was caught on camera.
Including the moment her girlfriend surprised her.
Scroll on for the adorable video…
In the last couple of years, JoJo Siwa has risen to unprecedented levels of fame.
She has over twelve million followers on her YouTube channel alone, with her vlogs and music videos each raking in millions of views.
She’s done a lot over the years, too.
In fact, Siwa has an extensive list of accolades that have made her who she is today.
Her time in the spotlight began on a very popular TV show…
Which had everyone’s eyes fixated onto the screen.
The show, which has since skyrocketed the likes of Maddy Ziegler to fame, introduced us to the energetic and bubbly young girl – and she certainly made an impact.
But it wasn’t long before she found her second calling in life.
While she was getting her bearings with life as a social media star, Siwa found some success in the world of music.
Her most popular tracks include ‘Boomerang’ and ‘Kid in a Candy Store’…
Songs that have seen her tour the globe.
But in 2021, Siwa got people talking for an entirely different reason.
Siwa made a groundbreaking announcement regarding her personal life.
The teen sensation came out…
She made the brave decision to reveal her sexuality to her followers.
And, she went even further into the details, revealing that she actually identifies as pansexual.
It all started when Siwa first filmed herself on TikTok miming along to the lyrics of ‘Born This Way’ by Lady Gaga:
“No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgender life, I’m on the right track baby I was born to survive.”
She quickly followed up her video with a Twitter post…
Where she showed off a gift from her cousin; a t-shirt that reads, “Best Gay Cousin Ever.”
Of course, with every celebrity announcement comes negativity…
And even though the teen received a few comments of negativity — and was even swatted as a publicity stunt by the media – she took it all in her stride and is clearly happier than ever.
In a People’s cover story, Siwa opened up more about her love life as well as her sexuality.
“I still don’t know what I am,” she said referring to her sexuality. “It’s like, I want to figure it out.”
“I don’t know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it, or queer because I think the keyword is cool…”
But then she also added this:
“Technically, I would say that I am pansexual, because that’s how I have always been my whole life is just, like, my human is my human.”
It’s now been more than a year since Siwa came out…
And it seems she is truly living her best life.
Siwa recently made headlines again after she gave fans a huge shock…
Siwa revealed that she has chopped of her iconic ponytail and people are loving her new look…
Siwa first teased people with her haircut as she shared a video to Instagram.
Sharing a video of her iconic ponytail being cut off, Siwa wrote: “Mayyyyy have done something todayyyy.”
And thankfully, it wasn’t too long before she unveiled her new hairdo…
Just hours later, Siwa took to Instagram again, to share a picture of her new short hair.
In a series of Instagram Stories, Siwa said that she got her hair cut.
“Yesterday, I went for the down and curly moment, but today I went for an up and back moment,” she said.
Describing herself as “obsessed” with her new hair, Siwa also added that it is “way different than long hair.”
We love it!
Not long after her chop, people were left shocked when Siwa wasn’t in attendance at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
While Siwa was nominated for Favorite Social Music Star, many were totally surprised that she wasn’t there herself.
And she later revealed why…
Posting to TikTok, Siwa wrote: “A lot of you have been asking me why I’m not at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards tonight and the answer is very simple: I wasn’t invited. I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t get an invite.”
“I don’t want you thinking I didn’t want to be there. I would’ve loved to have been there.”
It’s pretty strange, right?
Well now, many of her fans have theorized it’s because of her image change, and in particular, being a vocal LGBTQ+ advocate.
Fans flooded the comments section on her most recent Instagram post to call out Nickelodeon.
Some highlighted how her image has changed over the last year and suggested that could have been the reason why.
Fans even took to Twitter to share their opinions, with one user writing: “Something about Nickelodeon not inviting Jojo Siwa to the Kids Choice Awards this year after she came out and cut her hair short, really rubs me the wrong way.”
Then Siwa herself shared some tweets by fans, seemingly agreeing with what they had to say…
She retweeted a fan’s tweet that read: “The only year that @itsjojosiwa didn’t get invited to the kids choice awards is when she comes out and cuts her hair?????? Sus @Nickelodeon.”
The fan wrote: “Obsessed with the teenage girl celebrities who don’t take sh*t from their network of employment and refuse to be anything but themselves. Being connected to a kids channel shouldn’t mean you have to stop being yourself.”
However, it doesn’t look like she’s letting the whole ordeal get the better of her, as she was spotted at her first Pride parade with her girlfriend.
Kylie Prew surprised Siwa by showing up after initially telling her she wouldn’t be able to attend.
The surprise was documented on Siwa’s new Facebook series, JoJo Goes.
It turns out Siwa’s best friend Ezra Sosa planned the whole thing, and during the episode, Kylie Prew could be seen hiding, before jumping out to surprise her girlfriend.
At the end of the episode, Siwa tells Prew: “Thank you for being here with me. Thank you for doing this for the community with me. Thank you for spreading love with me. Thank you for being in my life and being there for me.”
She added: “And, y’all, that was literally the best freaking day, and I owe you all the world.”
