According to E! News, “This isn’t the first time in recent months the 17-year-old star has switched up her looks. Ahead of her birthday in May, she took down her famous ponytail to let her hair run wild and free. She rocked beachy waves for her special day.”
JoJo’s hair transformation comes only a day after she addressed the “awful” blackface allegations made against her.
On Friday (June 26), many online criticized the YouTube star for featuring a young dancer in the “Nonstop” music video. Internet users claimed that the dancer appeared to be wearing brown facial makeup with monkey ears.
The music video, which plays on circus-themes, also showed Jojo performing alongside an array of dancers dressed in different animal costumes. The music video released on June 19.
In response to the backlash, the 17-year-old shared a lengthy statement on Instagram.
“I would like to address the music video that we shot for ‘NONSTOP’ in February. 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,” her statement read. “Kids dressing in animal costumes, having their faces painted to look like animals, acting the part.”
Jojo Siwa is a 17-year-old dancer, singer, actress, and YouTube personality. She is known for appearing for two seasons on Dance Moms along with her mother, Jessalynn Siwa, and for her singles “Boomerang” and “Kid in a Candy Store”.
Siwa posts daily videos of her day-to-day life on her YouTube channels, “JoJo Siwa TV” and “It’s JoJo Siwa”. Right now, she’s one of the most popular teen stars in the world. Her fans are called Siwanatorz.
The hair brought about some horrible bullying on Twitter. Someone even started the hashtag #PorkyPig and posted pictures of Jojo next to the Warner Bros cartoon character.
