JoJo Siwa secured a spot-on TIME’s list of 100 Most Influential People of 2020. Kim Kardashian congratulated the Dance Moms Alum.
The SKIMS CEO paid tribute to JoJo by calling her a ‘great role model.’
“She’s a great role model for children, and her optimism is more necessary now than ever.
“It’s no wonder my seven-year-old daughter North and millions of other children around the world adore her.
When North met JoJo last year to fulfill her dream of being part of her YouTube channel, North got really shy. But JoJo, like a big sister, made her feel at home as they dressed up, danced and made slime.”
Kim Kardashian added that at the age of 17, JoJo embraces the fame and popularity.
“I can’t imagine what it’s like to live this life at age 17. JoJo embraces it, and I hope she always will. At some point, she’ll evolve and grow up a little bit, and that’s okay. The people who love and support her will always be there.”
JoJo Siwa has mutual feeling for Kim Kardashian and her family. The Dance Moms star called her and her husband ‘the most wonderful people.’
“I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love and respect Kim and her whole family. She has always been there for me and is always the nicest human ever.”
JoJo Siwa did know that she was on TIME’s list. But that did not ease her shock. She celebrated the news with her fans in her Tarzana mansion.
“I’m 17 years old! I’m from Omaha, Nebraska. I grew up doing dance competitions and now, like, how?!
The kids of today are why I love doing what I do. I promise to always be a good leader for the kids. I want them to grow up and make the world the most magical place ever. A place filled with love and happiness!”
