On Wednesday Jojo Siwa, 17, told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” about being a member of the LGBTQ community and revealed about the most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world who encouraged her to come out.
Siwa tells how she is happily in a relationship with “the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world.”
“I’m like, ‘I think this TikTok is going to out me,'” She recalled. “I was like, ‘I don’t really mind, it is true. I do have the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world. It’s not something I’m ashamed of, I just haven’t shown the internet yet.'”
The viral teen star who has millions of followers — almost 32 million on Tik Tok made a series of videos with members of the Pride House, an Los Angeles based collective of LGBTQ creators. A particular video, which posted January 23, a few days after they recorded it showed the group dancing to “Ain’t It Fun” by Paramore.
The viral teen star, on Wednesday admitted that it felt like a “big risk” to come out publicly, though her friends and family had already known about her sexuality. She said “But if I lost everything that I’ve created because of being myself and because of loving who I wanna love, I don’t want it”.
Siwa revealed she phoned her partner shortly before taking part in the interview, and she burst into tears because she was so happy she could talk openly about her love.
She said: “I’m just so happy because now I get to share what makes me the happiest with the world and it makes my heart so happy.”
