An important message.
Last night's episode of Siwas Dance Pop Revolution on E! was a special one.
As JoJo Siwa and her mom Jessalynn Siwa continued mentoring a group of tweens competing in a series of challenges and performances with the end goal of landing a coveted role in the newly formed music group, XOMG Pop—which will be managed by Jessalynn and serve as an opening act for JoJo—they're making sure to impart wisdom along the way.
For example, this week, the contestants weren't learning just any old routine, but one that had "a deeper meaning," as Jessalynn put it.
"Sometimes, you ever feel like you don't fit in?" she asked the girls after explaining the alien-themed, optical illusion dance. "Ever feel like you don't belong? That's kind of what I mean by an alien."
The routine's themes certainly resonated for JoJo, she revealed herself in a confessional.
"I've been an outsider on everything for forever," the reality TV personality explained. "Everybody in a way is an outsider, whether you're part of the LGBTQ community, possibly your race, possibly your weight."
However, JoJo continued, she's come a long way on the journey to self-acceptance.
"I'm gay," JoJo told the Siwas Dance Pop Revolution cameras. "I've learned to be comfortable with it."
That was what the alien dance was all about: embracing who you are regardless of what other people think.
"It's when you're in a world, but not a world that's exactly meant for you. But you're fitting into it," she added. "And that's cool."
