Transcript for JoJo Siwa comes out as pansexual
Now we'll turn to our "Gma" cover story. Jojo siwa, the singer and YouTube star recently made headlines when she came out as a member of the lgbtq community. Now she's opening up to "People" magazine about her decision to come out and the response she didn't expect. Will reeve has her story. Hey, will. Reporter: Hey, Michael, good morning. Jojo siwa is living her best life. She's a role model to millions. She's got a girlfriend and says she's never been so personally happy. She gets into that and a whole lot more in her interview with "People" magazine. Take a look. It's time to celebrate She's the bubbly and glittery singer and YouTube superstar jojo siwa opening up for the first time about coming out lgbtq. I knew since I was little. You can ask anyone in my family. I've never ever would have said like I am straight. I only like boys. All right. Now it's time to come out. Let's do it. Reporter: She came out like any social media star might, over a series of posts on tiktok, Twitter and Instagram declaring her love for her 18-year-old girlfriend kylie. Never mattered to her what the internet thought about us and which is really nice. Nice to have somebody like that. Never before has someone with such a massively young fan base publicly identified as lgbtq. Jojo's coming tout is a game-changing moment in the culture of our country because more young people today than ever before identify as lgbtq. Reporter: Jojo shying away from labels right now. Technically I'd say that I am pansexual because that's how I have always been my whole life is just like my human is my human but you know I still really don't have a final answer on that. Young people today often defy labeling. Their orientation or their gender identity, they love who they love and they present how they want to present. I think it's the first time I've felt so personally happy, like my career has always made me super happy performing has made me super happy but for the first time personally I am like, whoa, happiness, it's so cool. It's so awesome. Reporter: Jojo did tell "People" magazine she did Google herself after coming out and was surprised to receive some negative comments. She said she couldn't sleep for three days but then realized, quote, I don't want people to watch my videos or buy my merchandise if they aren't going to support not only me but the lgbtq community. For more video go to Michael. All right, happy for her and, will, never Google yourself, ever. No. Definitely not. Just make sure you know that.
