Jojo Siwa on Ditching Her Bow and Finding Herself During DANCE MOMS (Exclusive)
The 18-year-old is forced to lose her bow in her new movie, 'The J Team,' and admits to ET she has discussed ditching her iconic look. Jojo opens up about her style evolution and overcoming the intense coaching of Abby Lee Miller in 'Dance Moms.' 'The J Team' premieres on Friday, Sept. 3, exclusively on Paramount+.
Dancing With the Stars host Tyra Banks promised season 30 would be one for the books, and she was totally right.
Ahead of the hit ABC dancing competition series returning on September 20, Olympic gold medal gymnast Suni Lee and YouTuber JoJo Siwa were officially named as the first celebrities part of the 2021 Dancing With the Stars cast. Speaking on Good Morning America, the Team U.S.A. athlete and singer both shared their excitement to be hitting the dance floor this fall.
The news was announced only a week after Suni began her freshman year at Auburn University in Alabama, the college she’s been committed to since she was 14 years old. Thankfully, she will be taking online classes for her first semester, so she can stay in L.A. and focus on her choreography. Suni is joining the likes of former DWTS contestants who are also decorated gymnasts, including Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez and Nastia Liukin.
“I’m just going to try to do what I normally do,” she told GMA coanchor Amy Robach. “It’s very different than gymnastics but it’s obviously not going to be as difficult … so I’m really excited because I kind of get to have fun and let loose … I’m really excited that I get this opportunity, and I think I’m going to make the most of it.”
