The 15-year-old Nickelodeon star is a singer, dancer and social media sensation and behind all the glitter and rainbows, she’s a wonderful role model for young girls.

She recently sat down with eight-year-old Harper and Charlie, six, who interviewed her for Kidspot and she gave them some pretty good advice about bullying.

"It's something everyone goes through"

“I personally know what it’s like to get bullied too because it’s something that everyone goes through,” explained the teen star.

“But here’s the thing - if you have one person who says something mean to you, you can’t listen to them because there are 10 people who are saying something nice to you,” she explained.

JoJo’s outlook on bullying is you can’t let one person being negative to you get you down, because there are always so many people in your life who are there to be nice and support you.

“So say you’re having a bad day, but your friend says something nice to you, focus on what your friend said that was nice, not about what this one mean person said,” said JoJo.

"Be yourself ... everyone else is taken"

The former Dance Moms star has grown up in the spotlight and her advice that she wants young girls everywhere to know is to just ‘be yourself.’

“Be yourself, because that’s like one of the most important things ever, because everyone else is taken,” said JoJo.



It’s clear the teen star has a strong sense of self-confidence and a lot of that is thanks to best friend, her mum Jessalynn.

Fans of JoJo’s YouTube account know that Jessalynn is a really strict parent, but it doesn’t mean that her daughter doesn’t look up to her.

“My superstar, I’d probably go with my mum,” she said, “My mum's my superstar.”

JoJo has just completed her tour of East Australia for her first ever shows Down Under, visiting Sea World on the Gold Coast, Westfield Parramatta in New South Wales, the Eastland Shopping Centre in Victoria, drawing huge crowds wherever she went.
