AceShowbiz - JoJo Siwa makes it clear that she doesn't like her straight kissing scene in her upcoming film "Bounce". The former "Dance Moms" star, who came out as gay earlier this year, admitted that she is trying "so bad" to get the scene removed.
Gracing the Entertainment Weekly's new Pride digital cover, the 18-year-old revealed the reasons why she hoped no one would see her kissing a man in the movie. She spilled to the outlet in her cover story published on Tuesday, June 1, "I'm madly in love and I do not want to kiss another human." She then pointed out, "Especially because it's a man."
"That's what they look at me as, not some character, not some fictional thing," JoJo explained the kissing scene. Though she said that her girlfriend Kylie Prew would be fine with the scene, she felt "it's going to be a little weird." The Nickelodeon star went on to stress, "I'm not about it. I'm trying to get it pulled so bad. It'll happen. It'll get pulled."
JoJo then assured her fans that no one is forcing her to kiss a man. On Tuesday, June 1, the YouTube star tweeted, "My friends at paramount and my friend Caleeb Pinkett are 1000% supportive of me and assured me that I don't have to do anything I don't wanna do ever!!!" She also noted, "I'm so excited to make the movie 'Bounce' and couldn't have better people to make it with!!"
JoJo came out publicly as gay in January. At the time, she took to her Instagram account to share a nearly 15-minute video in which she said that she is "technically" pansexual but also comfortable identifying as gay. A month after, the "Kid in a Candy Store" singer made her relationship with her girlfriend Instagram official with a photo of them holding hands.
In April, JoJo opened up to PEOPLE about her gender identity, saying, "I still don't know what I am. It's like, I want to figure it out. And I have this joke. Her name is Kylie. And so I say that I'm 'Ky-sexual.' " Elaborating further, she told the outlet, "But like, I don't know, bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it or queer because I think the keyword is cool."
"I like queer," she added. "Technically I would say that I am pansexual because that's how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human."
