YouTuber JoJo Siwa is known for her bright, colorful clothes, sequins and bows — but it looks like the internet star is trading in her classic look for a totally new style.

JoJo Siwa is an icon for the younger generation, boasting over 11 million subscribers on YouTube alone. However, she’s not just an online entertainer; she was also a contestant on reality TV series Dance Moms, and even boasts a slew of original songs (as well as her very own brand of slime).

What sets the YouTuber apart, though, is her radiant positivity and equally shining wardrobe, as she is often seen wearing a high ponytail with a bow, sequined jackets, and brightly colored shirts.

YouTube star JoJo Siwa definitely has a unique look – but will her sequined style stick around?

While JoJo ‘s colorful attire has become a staple part of her image, it seems the 18-year-old content creator is making a big change to her image, as evidenced by a TikTok that went viral across social media on May 19.

Siwa’s name was trending across Twitter due to the short video, which showed the YouTuber wiping a mirror wearing her classic, colorful getup.

After swiping a paper towel across the mirror, Siwa effectively “wiped out” her classic look, taking down her hair to reveal long, blonde waves and trading in her bright clothes for a contrastingly darker Gucci graphic tee.

It’s a huge change for the social media mogul, who has made her look a central part of her branding — but this isn’t the first time she’s “let her hair down,” having uploaded previous videos of herself in a similar outfit and style, before.

Her latest TikTok could likewise herald a permanent transition in fashion for the star, as her video was uploaded on the eve of her 18th birthday, making the full transition to an adult.

Whether or not this means she will completely change her branding going forward remains to be seen — but fans are showing support for Siwa on all sides in wake of a massive shift that has left everyone completely shook.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
