Popular American singer and youth icon JoJo Siwa recently took the internet by storm after a TikTok video of her lip-syncing Lady Gaga's iconic song "Born This Way" went viral all over social media.
While her video could have been an ode to Gaga's mesmerizing performance at the recent presidential inauguration, fans are convinced that this is Siwa's coming-out video.
