Teen queen JoJo Siwa is beginning to open up about her love life since her split with Kylie Prew. In a new interview with E! News' The Rundown, JoJo and her mom, Jessalynn Siwa, dished on the ways they move on from breakups, their celebrity crushes, and dating deal-breakers. Let's just say they didn't hold anything back.
JoJo reflected on her breakup with Kylie after they dated for nine months, saying that she "needed sympathy" when she was coming to terms with her heartbreak.
"I just needed validation that what I was feeling was real and validation that missing was real and validation that feeling empty inside and feeling like I lost something was real," she said. "But that things were going to be okay was also real." The 18-year-old multi-hyphenate star also admitted that music brought out certain emotions during that period of her life.
"One day, [Dancing With the Stars partner Jenna Johnson] played 'All I Ask' [by Adele] on the car ride home from getting a spray tan," JoJo said, "and I was sobbing because it was practically how my relationship ended."
Naturally, mother knows best, and Jessalynn had a few things to say when it comes to JoJo's love life. She chimed in, saying that she wants JoJo's future partner to "embrace" her and "live their best life" with her. "I need JoJo's partner to know who Jo is and not try to change her and not try to take away what she's done," Jessalynn said.
The conversation then shifted to the topic of childhood crushes, and the mother-daughter duo wasn't shy to spill which celebs they've had their eyes on. Jessalynn said her childhood crush was Michael Jackson, as she'd always listen to his music when she was younger, but JoJo had to dive a little deeper for her response.
"I don't feel like I let myself be gay when I was little, if that makes sense. So I always feel like I was like, 'Oh, my crush is Justin Bieber and Zac Efron," JoJo dished. "However, looking back... if I were to let myself [have a crush on a girl], it'd be Miley Cyrus and Jenna Dewan doing her Magic Mike routine on Lip Sync Battle."
"The amount of girls that I've been attracted to in my life is like... three," she continued. "It's like... me saying 'Wow, that girl is really pretty,' or 'Wow, that girl is really hot,' for three people: my ex-girlfriend, one TikToker, and Jenna Dewan."
The producer then asked about the identity of the TikToker, and JoJo seemed a little flustered. "Here's the thing, she's become one of my friends and she's hot. Her name's Olivia, Olivia Ponton," JoJo replied. "She's gorgeous, she's awesome. She's really cool and she's so nice, too, which is something that I really appreciate in people."
She went on to say that her close friend and DWTS partner, Jenna Johnson, called her out on not finding people physically attractive. "I really am attracted to a person, not a physical feature or physical gender," she explained.
Olivia has yet to publicly respond to JoJo's statement, but since they're just friends, it's likely they'd take that convo to iMessage instead. It looks like JoJo's not wasting any time when it comes to being her true, authentic self and sharing her personal experiences in her relationships and I love this for her.
