JoJo Siwa posts reaction to that SNL skit roasting her new image

If you watched Saturday Night Live over the weekend, you’d have caught a pretty funny skit about JoJo Siwa and her new image.

Taking on the role of Siwa was Chloe Fineman. She was dressed in Siwa’s new signature, black sparkly bodysuit and scary KISS-like makeup. In character, she discussed her new “bad girl” look with SNL’s Colin Jost.

“Yeah yeah. It’s a pretty big change. I used to be rainbow sparkles and now I’m black sparkles,” she explained.

She also broke out some of Siwa’s dance moves, including snapping her head all over the place.

She says she’s “completely reinvented” herself and repeats the claim of coming up with “gay pop”.

Watch below.

Online, the clip has gone viral, with many feeling it’s the funniest SNL skit in some time.

However, how would Siwa herself feel about the send-up?

It turns out she felt honored. Commenting under an SNL reel on Instagram of the clip, Siwa said: “ICONIC”.

JoJo Siwa calls the SNL skit "iconic"

She also shared the clip to her own stories and said, “ICONIC. I literally don’t know what to say. This is f*cking crazy. 3 and a half minutes skit on SNL….”


Fineman responded to Siwa’s comment, saying, “@itsjojosiwa you are my spirit animal and ACTUALLY the most iconic.”

The history of “Karma”

We’re glad to see Siwa doesn’t take herself too seriously and can appreciate the humor.

Last month, Siwa dropped her first new single in four years. Entitled “Karma”, its lyrics and videos immediately raised eyebrows. The visual features choreographed dancing on a superyacht before Siwa falls into the ocean and re-emerges on a moonlit desert island. She then engages in some uninhibited same-sex … well, humping with another woman.

The song went to 22 on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart but missed landing on the Hot 100. It soon emerged “Karma” is not a new song per se. It was recorded by an artist named Brit Smith in 2012, but she’d shelved it. A video of Smith performing the song went viral on social media after Siwa released her version, prompting Smith to self-release her original.

Smith’s version subsequently peaked at number 8 on the US iTunes Pop Charts, surpassing Siwa’s which peaked at 89.
