JoJo Siwa Seemingly Confirms That She is Gay

JoJo Siwa has seemingly confirmed on Twitter that the 17-year-old singer, dancer, Nickelodeon superstar and social media phenomenon is gay! JoJo's latest tweet features a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt with the slogan "Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.", along with the caption "My cousin got me a new shirt".

Credit: JoJo Siwa.

The news follows JoJo teasing fans that she maybe gay in a recent TikTok video. In the video, the singer lip syncs the “No matter gay, straight or bi / lesbian, transgender life / I’m on the right track, baby / I was born to survive” part of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way, which is a an LGBTQ+ anthem, leading some of her 31.3 million followers to believe this was her coming out.


Out of the over 260,000 comments on the video, several prominent stars and YouTube influencers, such as Big Time Rush's Stephen Kramer Glickman, James Charles, Colleen Ballinger, Nikkie de Jager, Bretman Rock and more, congratulated and praised her.

Praise and positive reactions poured in for JoJo on Twitter, who became a trending topic on Friday afternoon.

“if u spell ‘swag’ backwards, it’s ‘gay.’ coincidence??” wrote Lil Nas X, who publicly came out on Twitter in June 2019.

“WE LOVE THIS FOR YOU,” influencer Brenna D’Amico wrote in the comments of the TikTok video.

“I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU,” wrote beauty influencer James Charles.

FIlmmaker Casey Neistat showed his love: "been a JoJo fan since day 1 (that is the first day my daughter told me about her 😉) very proud to see a role model to so many not shy away from who she is."

JoJo also retweeted some supportive messages, including ones featuring the iconic Pride flag.

JoJo also posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing a rainbow Gucci track jacket on Thursday, with thousands of comments from fans, including musician Luke Eisner, Paris Hilton and other celebrities, congratulating her.

As a dancer, JoJo first shot to fame on the Lifetime reality series Dance Moms and soon skyrocketed with her fashion, accessories and music aimed at a young audience. She signed with Nickelodeon in 2017 and appeared in the TV movie Blurt, Lip Sync Battle Shorties and is the youngest contestant ever on Fox’s The Masked Singer. JoJo has also released songs such as “Boomerang” and “D.R.E.A.M.,”

Siwa, who has built her empire with business savvy, has also lit up the internet by visiting TikTok collective Pride House LA and has collaborated with queer TikTokers.

JoJo has yet to release any sort of statement beyond these posts, so we shouldn't rush to any conclusions. Reps for Siwa did not immediately respond to The Los Angeles Times’ request for additional comment.

The news also follows JoJo recently breaking up with her boyfriend, Mark Bontempo.

Though young, JoJo Siwa has been a "gay icon" for a few years. Siwa knows this in fact and in 2018 when she was asked what she felt about being a gay icon she replied simply: "I love it."

Siwa’s has deep ties to the community. In 2018, was asked about her “gay icon status” by drag queens Izzy Uncut and Poppy during a New York event. According to Out, Siwa said she feels comfortable around everyone and wants everyone to feel comfortable around her, and that she loves and supports people for who they are, with no exclusions.

James Maslow Talks About Big Time Rush Virtual Reunions and Whether the BTR Guys Will Get Together Again in the Future

It's safe to say that 2020 was a complete dumpster fire, thanks to the on-going COVID-19 (coronavirus) health emergency. However, one of the few positives to come out of the year was that it gave our favorite TV stars to reunite, albeit virtually, and that includes the stars of Nickelodeon's hit musical comedy series and band of the same name, Big Time Rush, who not only treated us to one reunion to inspire us to stay indoors as much as possible and to keep healthy, but also two new renditions of two of their hit songs, "Worldwide" and "Beautiful Christmas".


The reunions have left Rushers wondering whether the BTR boys will get back together again. In a super interview with Smashing Interviews Magazine, James Maslow, who played James Diamond in the series, revealed that there are no immediate plans for a Big Time Rush reunion, there "may be on the table"!:

"Smashing Interviews Magazine: Big Time Rush had a virtual reunion last year and surprised fans with an acoustic cover of “Worldwide.” Will you guys get together again?

James Maslow: Over Christmas, we decided to put together a little acoustic version of one of our songs, “Beautiful Christmas.” We didn’t try to publicize it or make a big deal out of it. We put it out for the fans and made a sweet home video. I think a lot of the fans enjoyed it. But we’ll see, you know.

This last year, we’ve definitely been in touch more than previous years and wanted to do several things just to bring some levity and some “stay positive” nostalgia to our fans in such trying times. The reaction’s been pretty fantastic. So what that means, I’m not certain. I think we need to get past Covid before any of us are touring individually or collectively. But something may be on the table. We’ll see how things turn out this year."

How Nickelodeon and Elevation Brought Slime and More to the NFL Playoffs

What could possibly make an NFL playoff game better? Obviously, “Nickified” motion graphics courtesy of Atlanta-based creative studio Elevation!


On Jan. 10, more than two million viewers tuned into the first-ever broadcast of an NFL game on kids’ network Nickelodeon, with the network adding augmented reality (AR) graphics to the broadcast as well as color commentary from Noah Eagle, Nate Burleson and Nickelodeon star Gabrielle Neveah Green (All That, Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered). Nick star Lex Lumpkin (All That, Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered) ­­also served as a reporter during the game.

Nick’s simulcast, described as “a wacky, slime-filled simulcast”, aired live alongside CBS’ official presentation of the Wild Card playoff game between the Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints.


Among the fun graphics that Nick and Elevation concocted were googly eyes bulging out of helmets, animated slime cannons going off in the endzones (redubbed "Slime Zones") whenever a team scored and Nick superstar SpongeBob SquarePants poking his head out between the goal posts.

“There has never been a live sports experience quite like this on television, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive from audiences of all ages,” said Kurt Hartman, Vice President (VP) of Animation and Motion Graphics for Nickelodeon, Nick Jr. and Nick@Nite, in a statement. “Not only was it Nick’s premiere splash into major sports, but also it marks the first time an NFL game was simulcasted on two completely different networks.”

Creative company Elevation worked closely with Nickelodeon to develop the branding for NFL on NickPlay, which aims to attract a younger generation to the NFL “in a fun and educational way”.


Elevation’s branding and design toolkit included a logo, type treatments, iconography, graphics, and an bright and kid-friendly — all unified to live across Nickelodeon’s digital, social, and broadcast channels.

“Bridging the gap between the NFL and Nickelodeon audiences, the visual language for this package emphasises the fun of the game while still maintaining the marquee feel of a big sporting event,” explains Elevation’s art director, Dianne Frisbee. “Striking that balance played into every creative choice and, of course, we ‘Nickified’ everything we possibly could, which meant lots of slime!”


Nick’s classic orange and slime-green colors served as the jumping-off point for the package, with Elevation adding bubbly iconography and football-themed visuals to the network’s catalog of iconic characters.

The “NFL on NickPlay” logo zeroes in on a slab serif font with thick, block-like letters, while game-inspired textures—turf, footballs and jerseys—ramped up the playfulness. Incorporating a mix of 2D and 3D animation in the package reinforced that balance.

“Nickelodeon and the NFL have tapped into something that just may come to redefine live sports on TV as we know it,” said Elevation Executive Producer Steph Carson, also in a statement. “We are thrilled with how it turned out and how they welcomed us as a true extension of their team.”

Besides the cross-promotion between Nick and CBS Sports, the partners also had fun dropping in some special guest stars, such as Young Sheldon (Iain Armitage) popping up to explain a rule here and there.

The branding and broadcast toolkit developed by Elevation was then handed over to Nick’s in-house creative team. Here, Elevation also provided animation tests defining the motion behaviour for the in-game graphics for the live broadcast and promo materials.

Once the creative assets were delivered, Nickelodeon focused on game-day logistics working closely with CBS Sports and SMT, which specializes in real-time and wireless data and display systems for major sporting events. This included developing a pipeline between Nickelodeon animators in New York City and the CBS Sports on-site media team in New Orleans to send and receive clips in real time and apply Nick-themed graphics that would air moments later. In total, 125 clips—amounting to 22 minutes of animation—were aired over the course of the game.

“We found a way to make the sport funny and irreverent, taking the business part out of the game for kids, but never losing sight that real football fans were also watching and enjoying,” said Giancarlo Barrera, Senior Art Director for Nickelodeon Brand Creative, also in a statement. “It was a completely new and incredibly ambitious approach to live television for everyone involved — creatively and technically — but we had an all-star team to put it all together in Elevation, Nickelodeon, CBS Sports, and SMT. We’re all excited to see what’s possible and what’s next.”

Pluto TV to Launch in France on February 8

PLUTO TV TO LAUNCH IN FRANCE FEBRUARY 8

PLUTO TV WILL BE THE FIRST FREE AD-SUPPORTED STREAMING TV SERVICE IN FRANCE

PLUTO TV WILL LAUNCH WITH 40 ORIGINAL AND CURATED CHANNELS WITH THOUSANDS OF MOVIES, SERIES, AND PROGRAMMES


Paris, January 21, 2021 – ViacomCBS Networks International announces Pluto TV’s launch, the leading free streaming television service, in France. Pluto TV is the first FAST (Free Ad-Supported Television) service to debut in the country. Beginning February 8, Pluto TV will be available on all major streaming devices (TV, smartphone, tablet, PC) via the Pluto TV browser www.pluto.tv, via app on Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and the iOS and Android apps available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Pluto TV offers a seamless streaming experience that is cost-free, with ease of access and no registration required, to stream 40 specially curated and original channels for French audiences. Its library will include content from both ViacomCBS brands and third parties through partnerships with a large number of leading international and French publishers, broadcasters, and distributors with the aim to deliver constantly fresh and varied content.

With unique channels like Pluto TV Ciné, Pluto TV Action, and Pluto TV Drama, and many more, the lineup features content across popular genres such as cinema, TV series, kids, animation, reality TV, lifestyle, crime and investigation, comedy, sports, documentaries, and much more.

It is currently unknown whether Pluto TV France will feature any Nickelodeon-branded channels like its international counterparts.

The launch of Pluto TV in France marks an important step for the growth of our company’s streaming presence in Europe,” said Olivier Jollet, Senior Vice President Emerging Business ViacomCBS Networks Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. “Pluto TV has already demonstrated its strong appeal in many markets across the world like the UK, GSA, Latam, and Spain. I’m sure that with its market-centric approach and extensive reach, Pluto TV’s innovative digital model will transform the French streaming and television market, both in terms of consumer experience and Ad sales offer.”

Pluto TV continues its ambitious international roll-out and expansion with the French launch, following successful launches in the UK, Germany, 17 countries across Latin America, including Brazil and Spain, where the app became the most downloaded entertainment app for more than three weeks. Pluto TV continues to extend its reach, which currently spans three continents and 24 countries with almost 36 million active users worldwide. Italy will be the next market to launch Pluto TV, which is planned for late 2021.

ViacomCBS acquired Pluto TV  for $330 million in 2019, and is part of ViacomCBS’ digital strategy encompassing AVOD and SVOD — the latter through pending Paramount+ (formerly CBS All Access).

Pluto TV sera disponible dès le 8 février sur tous les écrans (TV, smartphones, tablettes et PC) via la plateforme pluto. tv, sur Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast ainsi que via les Apps iOS et Android disponibles sur Apple Store et Google Play.

Pluto TV est un nouveau concept de télévision linéaire adapté à l’univers du digital appelé FAST (Free Ad-supported Streaming Television) proposant des chaînes en streaming financées par la publicité. 
 
Pour la première fois, les utilisateurs auront accès sur le digital, directement et sans création de compte, à plus de 40 chaînes linéaires conçues specialement pour eux. Ces chaînes inédites, dont Pluto TV Ciné, Pluto TV Action, Pluto TV Drama et bien d’autres, sont éditorialisées autour de programmes couvrant les genres les plus appréciés pour répondre à toutes les envies: cinéma, séries, jeunesse, animation, TV réalité, lifestyle, crime et investigation, humour, sport, documentaires, etc. De nouvelles chaînes viendront régulièrement enrichir le service.
 
Au-delà d’un choix de productions issues du groupe ViacomCBS, Pluto TV a noué des partenariats avec un grand nombre d’editeurs et distributeurs internationaux et français de premier plan afin d’offrir une importante variété de contenus.
 
« Le lancement de Pluto TV en France marque une étape importante dans le développement des activités de streaming de ViacomCBS en Europe », a déclaré Olivier Jollet, Senior Vice President Emerging Business ViacomCBS Networks Europe, Moyen-Orient, Afrique et Asie. « Pluto TV a déjà démontré sa forte attractivité sur des marchés comme le Royaume-Uni, l’Allemagne, l’Autriche, la Suisse, l'Espagne et l’Amérique Latine.

Pluto TV continue d’accroître son empreinte qui couvre désormais trois continents et 24 pays avec près de 36 millions d'utilisateurs actifs dans le monde. Le prochain pays sera l’Italie avec un lancement prévu fin 2021.

From CNEWS:

PLUTO TV : QUE PROPOSE CE NOUVEAU SERVICE DE STREAMING GRATUIT QUI ARRIVE TRÈS BIENTÔT EN FRANCE ?

Le groupe ViacomCBS lancera ce 8 février Pluto TV, un service de streaming sans abonnement qui proposera 40 chaînes inédites avec des films, séries et programmes financés par la publicité.

Cinéma, jeunesse, animation, télé-réalité, lifestyle, crime et investigation, humour, sport, documentaires… Les différents contenus proposés proviendront majoritairement des catalogues de ViacomCBS (groupe qui comprend notamment les marques MTV, BET, Paramount Channel, Comedy Central ou encore Nickelodeon), ainsi que «d’un grand nombre d’éditeurs et distributeurs internationaux et français». 

Les utilisateurs auront accès sur le digital, directement et sans création de compte, à plus de 40 chaînes linéaires dont Pluto TV Ciné, Pluto TV Action ou encore Pluto TV Drama. A noter que, dans un premier temps, Pluto TV fonctionnerait uniquement en OTT (Over the top, ou Service par contournement en français) et pas encore depuis les box des opérateurs. Les services en OTT sont des services en ligne où la vidéo sur demande et la télé linéaire sont disponibles en streaming, et sans téléchargement, en règle générale financés par le visionnage de publicité par l'utilisateur.

«Nous savons que le public français apprécie les chaînes thématiques, sélectionnées et uniques, et nous avons donc de grandes attentes pour Pluto TV avec ses médias exclusifs et ses contenus dédiés», avait déclaré dans une interview pour Variety Raffaele Annecchino, le président de ViacomCBS pour les régions EMEA et Asie.

Opérationnel aux Etats-Unis depuis 2014, le service - racheté par ViacomCBS en 2019 contre 340 millions de dollars - est actuellement présent dans 24 pays et revendique une audience de 36 millions d’utilisateurs. Son modèle économique basé sur la publicité, Pluto va-t-il submerger de spots les utilisateurs ? Le service dit s’être plié aux habitudes des Européens, habitués à voir moins de pub à l'antenne que les Américains. «Pour installer Pluto TV en Europe, nous avons baissé le nombre de spots», a confirmé le directeur de la plate-forme pour le continent, selon les propos d’Olivier Jollet lors d'une table ronde au MIPCOM relayés par l’AFP.

Le marché du streaming vidéo gratuit - sans compter Molotov/Mango, Youtube ou encore les replays des chaînes de télé - demeure encore peu développé en France, mais devrait connaître une accélération dans les prochaines années, en témoigne la plate-forme californienne Tubi et celle du géant japonais Rakuten qui ne cachent pas leurs fortes ambitions.
