YouTube sensation and former Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa has officially come out after uploading a TikTok that got the entire internet talking.

JoJo Siwa is a huge icon for young internet users around the globe. Best known for her colorful outfits, giant bows and larger-than-life personality, the 17-year-old has amassed an impressive 12 million YouTube subscribers with her positive messages and energetic original songs.

Despite sharing her life with the world, Siwa has been relatively quiet regarding her relationship status, with fans keeping a close eye on any potential suitors she uploads videos with.

Now, Siwa has turned the tables in a major way, after uploading a TikTok lipsyncing to Lady Gaga’s iconic LGBTQ anthem, ‘Born This Way.’

More specifically, JoJo sang along to the lyrics: “No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life / I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive.”

A day after releasing her viral TikTok, Siwa has officially come out in a touching Tweet. In her post, JoJo wears a t-shirt that she received from her cousin, which boasts the words: “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.”

This announcement also comes a short time after her collaboration with LGBTQ TikTok content group Pride House, where she danced together with some of its members to Paramore’s ‘Ain’t It Fun.’

Siwa’s latest announcement has been met with a slew of positivity and support from her fans and fellow creators – but even before she made it official, several high-profile internet stars made sure to give her their well-wishes via TikTok.

“I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!” James Charles exclaimed.

“WELCOME TO THE FAMILY JOJO!” TikTok star Spencer commented.

“Happy for you JoJo,” YouTuber Bretman Rock added.

Commenters congratulate JoJo Siwa on coming out.

Before releasing her reveal on January 22, some fans weren’t so sure Siwa was actually coming out, as her initial TikTok had no caption and could have been a mere lipsync video with no hidden meaning, at all.

However, that doesn’t seem to be the case, anymore, as Siwa has put the “rumors” to rest. Congrats, JoJo Siwa – you’re on the right track, baby, you were born this way!
