JoJo Siwa, known for her blonde side ponytail and collection of gigantic, multicoloured bows, has changed up her look.
Not only is JoJo no longer blonde, but she’s also not wearing a ponytail and she’s not wearing a bow. In a video posted on her TikTok, dressed in an all-pink look, Siwa, who turned 17 in May, sings along to Miley Cyrus’ “Can’t Be Tamed.” As she spins around, she is then seen with her darker locks in a ponytail. In another Instagram clip, she also shows off her freshly-dyed hair. This time, her hair is down and she quickly shows it off before walking off camera.
JoJo also took to social media to address accusations that one of her dancers in her new “Nonstop” music video was wearing blackface. In a lengthy post, she set explained that the kids in her circus-themed video were dressed as animals.
“I would like to address the music video that we shot for ‘NONSTOP’ in February,” she wrote. “We’re talking about kids dressing up as circus animals! No one in my video is wearing blackface. It’s awful that anyone’s mind would even go there. Kids dressing in animal costumes, having their faces painted to look like animals, acting the part. There were zebras, tigers, dogs, clowns, mermaids, everything.”
“I’ve addressed Black Lives Matter issues previously on my social media, I will say it again for the ones in the back, Black Lives Matter, today, tomorrow, yesterday and forever,” Siwa continued. “I’m on the right side of history here. Stop trying to make this about something it isn’t.”
