It’s hard to describe YouTube sensation JoJo Siwa in a nutshell, but many of her fans would agree that she’s playful, fun, and upbeat. From the energetic TikToks of the Nebraska native to her fondness for wearing great ties paired with rainbow-inspired outfits, it’s a mini pack of sunlight for her 9 million followers on Instagram.
And considering that JoJo seems to be the type of person who wouldn’t hurt a fly, some people might be surprised to learn that she has quarreled with some celebrities. Just an example? Look no further than Justin Bieber, who shaded the teenager’s custom BMW convertible in December 2018, telling her to “burn” the vehicle with a large photo of her face in the front. Ouch.
Although Bieber apologized, some people thought he rekindled the feud in January 2019 with another dubious comment. But is there any truth to speculation? We clarify the truth about JoJo Siwa and Justin Bieber’s relationship.
JoJo Siwa and Justin Bieber’s friendship is joyful
After Justin Bieber apologized for the “burn it” comment, JoJo Siwa joked about the whole thing, replying, “Everything is fine, brother! You can perform at my 16th birthday party and we’ll call it good!”
Everything seemed great between the two until Bieber apparently rekindled the enmity in January 2019 when he joked about burning one of JoJo’s books. However, he added a “haha JK” to the subtitle, which means he was probably joking.
In return, the YouTube star shared a photo of herself standing next to a cardboard cutout of Bieber from his “Baby” days, writing: “Since @justinbieber likes my books now, I thought I’d read him the new one”.
A short time later during an appearance on Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon, JoJo joked that Bieber was “the only person in the United States who perhaps doesn’t like the car.” He added about his alleged enmity: “We kind of just had fun and games back and forth. And now he’s supposed to be performing at my 16th birthday party. Right, Justin?”
All in all, we’re happy to see these two worked things out, unlike some decades-long celebrity fights.
