JoJo Siwa Catches Fans Up on Pretty Much ~Everything~ She's Been Doing Since "Dance Moms"

JoJo Siwa is certainly on a roll, and she's not slowing down any time soon. At only 14 years old, the Dance Moms alumna has already had successful careers as a mega dancer, a television star, and even a business woman with her line of JoJo Bows. JoJo and her mother were permanent members on Abby Lee Miller's all-star dance team until the second half of the sixth season of the series. The pair departed from the show in 2016, after JoJo signed with Nickelodeon.


While JoJo and J-14 caught up at the Sugar Factory in New York City, the starlet clued fans in to all that she's been up to since leaving Dance Moms. Trust me, she's been up to A LOT! JoJo is ready to keep on climbing with a new music video, a Nickelodeon special, and a feature length film.

JoJo is releasing new music, and just dropped the music video for "Hold the Drama."

JoJo just premiered the music video for her hit song "Hold The Drama" on Friday. The final product is everything fans could ever want from the spunky star: Bright colors, sparkly pants, and of course — the bows! Check out the video below!:



You've probably also heard her infectious tracks like "Boomerang" and "Kid in a Candy Story."

She has her own upcoming Nickelodeon special, JoJo Siwa: My World.

Nickelodeon will also showcase a special about the multi-talented teen later this month, called JoJo Siwa: My World. The show takes fans behind the scenes and into the depths of JoJo's life, all leading up to her huge performance at the Mall of America. The special will premiere on Saturday 12th August 2017 at 8:00pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon USA and Friday 18th August 2017 at 5:00pm on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland.

"It's all leading up to my performance at Mall of America. So my performance at Mall of America is basically what it’s around, so that’s at the end of it. Then it’s really just my story: my life and how I got here, and the rehearsals for Mall of America and what it really took, and my life at home. It was really fun!" she told us.

JoJo will be hosting Nickelodeon's Lip Sync Battle Shorties alongside Nick Cannon.

It was recently announced that the YouTuber would be joining Nick Cannon as the host of Lip Sync Battle Shorties. Since she's literallly so good at musical.ly (just ask her millions of followers), she'll be such a great judge.

JoJo is starring in a full-length movie with Jace Norman, Inside Voice.

Most recently, JoJo has been working on a feature length film called Inside Voice. She will be starring as "Victoria" in the upcoming TV-Movie on Nickelodeon. Though she has acted before on television, the role is actually JoJo's first part in a movie. The YouTuber revealed, "It’s actually a lot different than I would have thought it was! Because I’ve done acting on TV shows, but never in a movie. This is my first movie ever. And everyone said that I did really good!"

Through the filming process, the starlet got the chance to work with Henry Danger lead Jace Norman. The two stars quickly became close friends. "He's honestly one of those people on set who’s just fun to work with," JoJo told J-14. "He’s kind of like the older brother type." Um, awww!

And in case you were wondering, no, JoJo will not be sporting one of her signature bows on the big screen. I know, NickALive!'s shook too! I'm already struggling to imagine what she'll look like without her signature 'do. "It'll be a change," JoJo explains. "You'll see! I’m playing a character, so I’m not supposed to be JoJo. I got to wear bows! But not JoJo bows."

She is still wearing her signature JoJo Bows and selling them at stores like Justice and Claire's.

JoJo loves it when fans come up to her sporting her bows. She told J-14, ​"You know, I just always wear bows. I always love bows and it’s always been my thing. And then it just kind of evolved, and now it’s here...It just like evolved and slowly and slowly got better and bigger and amazing-er. [Fans come up to me with their bows] all the time! It’s so cool. I’ll be on the street and they’ll be like, they’ll just come up and I’m like 'You have a JoJo bow on!' And they’re like, 'Yeah!' And I’m like, 'Cool!' It’s crazy."

But JoJo hasn't forgotten about her Dance Moms roots.

My girl💙💗

"Dance Moms was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life!" JoJo told J-14. "Literally, Dance Moms was so amazing and I have the world to thank for that. They were so awesome — the set, the cast, the crew — it was amazing. It’s my platform, it’s how I’m here now. And so for me, moving on from that was really, really hard. But now it’s so cool! I signed with Nickelodeon, like that’s unbelievable!" What a career you've had, JoJo!
