JoJo Siwa Opens Up About Her Personal Life: ‘I’m Really, Really Happy’

Two days after trending on TikTok with her lip-sync performance to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” JoJo Siwa hopped on Instagram Live with a beaming smile to give a glimpse into her personal life.

Siwa’s grin was unwavering as she gushed about the kind messages she’s received in reaction to her latest social media posts.

“I have gotten the most endless amount of love and support. I’m just … I’m really, really happy,” the viral star said on Saturday (Jan. 23). “Now that the world gets to see this side of my life, it makes me really, really happy. I’ve been happy in this land for a minute now. Now that I just get to share that with the world, it’s awesome.”

Later on in her live session, she added, “It’s been 48 hours of the world knowing. It’s been the best 48 hours.”

Siwa took a moment to give a thoughtful answer to a follower’s question of “What label are you?”

“The reason why I’m not ready to say this answer is because I don’t really know this answer,” she candidly said. “I think humans are awesome. I think humans are really incredible people. Right now, I’m super duper happy and I, you know, want to share everything with the world, I really do, but I also want to keep things in my life private until they are ready to be public.”

“Right now what matters is that you guys know that no matter who you love, that it’s OK. It’s awesome, and the world is there for you. There are so many people that are there for you. I know everyone’s situation is different and it might be harder for some people and it might be easier for some people to come out or be themselves, but I think coming out has this stigma around it — that it’s this really, really, really scary thing — but it’s not anymore. There are so many accepting and loving people out there that it’s OK. Of course people are going to say it’s not normal, but it’s your normal. Nothing is normal. Literally not one thing about anybody is normal, and it’s OK to not be normal, it’s OK to be a little different, it’s OK to be a little weird, it’s OK to be a little strange … I think a lot of people are afaid of being different. That’s something we should never, ever be afraid of. That’s something we should be proud of and that we should celebrate,” said Siwa on Instagram Live.

Siwa said she’d also received questions like “How long have you been a part of the community?” and “How long have you been whatever you are?”

Her response: “I don’t know. I think my whole life. Because my whole life, I have really, really been, I just liked people, but I never have fallen in love before. But I always believed that my person was just going to be my person. If that person happened to be a boy, great! And if that person happened to be a girl, great! I think I’m just really happy. I think in life you know when you meet your person, I really do.”

As she continued to let fans in to bits of her personal life during the live chat, Siwa was happy to share how supportive her parents have always been.

“My parents have known,” she pointed out. “My mom said that she’s known for the last two years. She’s like, ‘I just know with you.’ She was like, ‘About two years ago was when I was like, yeah, I don’t think that you only like boys. And that’s totally OK.’ They just have always been so everything and so over-the-top.”

Cardi B Plans to Just ‘Enjoy Life’ in This Show-Stopping Dress

Cardi B stepped out to go shopping in a head-turning ensemble that she happily showed off on Instagram this weekend.

“Enjoy life,” the rapper, dressed in a unique Pierre-Louis Auvray gown, wrote in a post featuring a clip of herself strutting over to her car on Saturday (Jan. 23).

The statement dress was part knit and part sheer, and it hugged Cardi’s body.

“Majin Buu & Goku,” she captioned a photo of herself in the dress, with Offset by her side.

The pair were photographed out in Los Angeles with their masks on (with Cardi’s matching her red dress, of course).

While social media buzzed about the fun, bold look on Saturday, Cardi took a moment to shoot down a negative comment.

“I’m just tryna figure what man is ok with their woman/girl/gf/wife walking out in public with her a– and g string showing,” one person tweeted Saturday , to which Cardi replied: “A confident one who know his b—- a star and bad.”

In another tweet, Cardi clarified her look’s inspiration: “I wasn’t dress like a human anatomy I was dress as a alien. Is very disrespectful to compare human to aliens.”

Justin Timberlake & Ant Clemons’ ‘Better Days’ Feat. Kirk Franklin Breaks Shazam Record After Inauguration

Following the festivities of the Biden-Harris inauguration on Jan. 20, “Better Days” — a duet by Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, which was released to streaming services featuring Kirk Franklin — has topped the record for most-Shazamed song in a single day in the United States.

“Better Days” was performed by Timberlake and Clemons during the Celebrating America primetime inaugural special honoring President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

According to stats released by Shazam, the song was Shazamed more than 90,000 times within 24 hours of the performance, bringing it to No. 1 on the U.S. Shazam chart and breaking previous records held by “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” by Willie Nelson (heard on Big Little Lies) and “Jenny of Oldstones” by Florence + the Machine (heard on Game of Thrones).

As Billboard previously reported, on the sales front, “Better Days” also saw immediate gains after Wednesday’s inauguration programming. On Jan. 20, the song sold 13,000 downloads, a gain of 15,351% compared to its sales on Jan. 19.

Earlier in the week, Timberlake said he and Clemons had been “deeply honored to perform our new song” for the event “as a celebration of everything this administration represents… as well as a reminder to keep our eyes on the road ahead. We have a lot of work to do, but I’m feeling very hopeful for this country right now.”

Justin Bieber Reflects on His DUI Arrest in 2014: ‘God Has Brought Me a Long Way’

Justin Bieber is spending some time reflecting on his past mistakes.

The 26-year-old pop superstar took to Instagram on Saturday (Jan. 23) to look back on getting arrested in 2014 and how his relationship with God has helped him become a better person.

“7 years ago today I got was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at god,” Bieber wrote alongside a photo of himself hunched over in handcuffs.

On Jan. 23, 2014, Bieber was arrested in Florida for drag racing on a Miami Beach street in a yellow Lamborghini and failing a sobriety test. He was later charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license.

“All this to say God has brought me a long way,” Bieber continued in his post. “From then til now I do realize something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. My encouragement to you is to ‘let your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you. Don’t allow shame to ruin your “today” let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be.”

Following the arrest, Bieber was able to avoid jail time by pleading guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving. The singer also made a charitable donation and agreed to take anger management classes.

This isn’t the first time Bieber has reflected on his past arrest. In 2017, the singer wrote on Instagram that he had done a lot of growing up since his DUI.

“I LOVE THIS because it reminds me IM NOT EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT THANK GOD IM NOT WHERE I USED TO BE!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME DO YOU BELIEVE IT?” he captioned a side-by-side picture of his mugshot and a current selfie.

Remembering Larry King’s Interviews With Lady Gaga, Prince, Beyonce & More

Larry King loved talking with musicians.

Over his six-decade career, the late broadcasting giant — who died Saturday (Jan. 23) at age 87 — conducted unforgettable interviews with countless superstar acts, including Prince, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Beyonce, and Snoop Dogg.

The former CNN host passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to statement on his official social media account. A cause of death was not given, but he was hospitalized earlier in the month with COVID-19.

It’s estimated that King, a 25-year veteran of CNN, conducted an estimated 50,000 on-air interviews during career. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1989.

Watch 10 of King’s most memorable sit-downs with musicians below.

Frank Sinatra (1988)

Sinatra gave a rare interview to King in 1988, marking the iconic singer’s last major TV appearance before his death 10 years later. During the chat, Sinatra revealed that he never got over his stage fright (“I tremble every time…”) and called writers of kiss-and-tell books “pimps and whores.”

Barbra Streisand (1995)

Streisand appeared on CNN’s Larry King Live several times dating back to the early 1990s. In this mid-’90s appearance, the legendary singer and actress discussed her fear of public speaking, the political climate at the time, her career in film, and much more.

Tina Turner (1997)

Turner sat down with King in 1997 to discuss her decision to relocate from America to Europe and she reflected on rebuilding her life after Ike Turner. The iconic performer also touched on being a feminist hero. “I see it as a gift because of the life I lived, it had a meaning,” Turner said. “If I had not given the story to the world, maybe my life would not be as it is.”

Prince (1999)

The artist formerly known as Prince spoke with King in 1999 to promote his new album at the time, Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic. During the interview, the artist discussed the decision to change his stage name and touched on his ongoing struggles with Warner Bros Records. “It sort of divorced me from the past and all the hangups that go along with it,” Prince said of changing his name.

Madonna (1999)

A year after the release of her Grammy-winning album, Ray of Light, Madonna gave a wide-ranging interview on Larry King Live, touching on her rise to stardom, the struggles of fame, motherhood, and her interest in politics.

The Beatles’ Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr (2007)

In 2007, King brought together surviving Fab Four members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to promote the launch The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas. During the interview, which also included Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, King mistakenly referred to Ringo as “George.”

Beyonce (2009)

A year into her marriage with Jay-Z, Beyonce appeared on Larry King Live to promote her 2009 film Obsessed with Idris Elba. The episode found Queen Bey discussing everything from portraying Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records to her feelings on the Barack Obama presidency. Bey also revealed her desire to become a mother. “I only pray that my relationship with my daughter is like the relationship I have with my mother,” she said.

Lady Gaga (2010)

Lady Gaga’s interview with King in 2010 proved very interesting. In addition to revealing that she was set to open for Michael Jackson at London’s O2 Arena before his death, the pop superstar also discussed her “borderline positive” lupus diagnosis. Gaga also addressed the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law, telling King, “There’s so many archaic things floating around in the government right now that are so misinformed and so wrong. It’s very confusing for young people.”

Snoop Dogg (2010)

Snoop Dogg and King crossed paths on many occasions over the years. Perhaps their most memorable onscreen encounter came in 2010 when the legendary rapper let King hit the switches in his custom 1967 Pontiac Parisienne. “I can’t reach the gears,” King says at one point.

Mac Miller (2015)

About three years before his death, Mac Miller appeared on Larry King Now for a revealing interview about his battles with depression, his feud with Donald Trump and details about his third album, GO:OD AM. “I can’t believe I’m getting interviewed by you right now,” an excited Miller tells King. “It’s so awesome.”
