3. Having a music career. At the time of writing, the video for "Boomerang" has 364,491,186 views. In it, JoJo successfully manages to rhyme the word "boomerang" with "say," which is, inarguably, a remarkable feat:
4. A Nickelodeon special titled JoJo Siwa: My World:
5. Having a huge line of brightly-colored merchandise, including oversized hair bows (items JoJo refers to as her "superpower," which makes no sense at all, but cool), key rings, costumes, socks, games, pencil cases, bedspreads, blankets, T-shirts, pajamas, gloves, and hats, all sold at nationwide stores including Target, Walmart and Claire's:
JoJo's latest step towards world domination is a book titled JoJo's Guide to the Sweet Life (which came out October 3 through Amulet Books). The press release accompanying the hardback describes it as "a nonfiction middle-grade memoir that inspires young girls to find the courage and confidence to go after their dreams."
JoJo herself has this to say (alarmingly fast and extremely loudly) about her first literary project:
Here then is the wisdom of JoJo Siwa—a child who is undoubtedly much, much wealthier than the vast majority of us—broken down, chapter by chapter. Let us bask in her all-powerful truth nuggets.
Chapter 1: "Rolo-s for Being a Siwanator #Siwanatorz Rule"
"Being a Siwanator [nickname for her fans] means being confident, positive and supportive of others. Sometimes it means building a wall around you—and I'm not talking about the kind you make with bricks. I'm talking about the imaginary kind that keeps the haters away."
Chapter 2: "Sugar Babies #TBT/ #FBF"
(Um, there's a really famous "adult arrangement" website with that exact same name—minus hashtags, obviously—and I can't believe no one spotted this in the editing process.)
In this chapter, JoJo uses types of candy to pinpoint what kind of personality you have. Example: "Almond Joy: You're a little quirky, and proud of it! You're a leader and stand out from the pack."
Chapter 3: "My Peeps #FamilyMatters"
"One time when I was really little, I tagged along with my dad to the gym. I went on the treadmill and because I didn't really know how to work it, I started going super fast and I fell. I was terrified. When my dad realized what was happening, he came to my rescue."
Chapter 4: "Dreamsicle #KeepingItCool"
"Even if it's not your day in one particular way, find a way to make it great! Say you don't win at a tennis match—shake it off and hang out with your friends! Have fun! At the end of every day, I ask myself, 'If today was my last day, would I be happy with how I spent it?' And if my answer is no, I do something to fix that!"
Chapter 5: "Life Savers #WhenLifeThrowsACurveball"
"I'm also really loyal to the things I commit to. So for example, my four ponytail holders: I wear the same exact four ponytail holders every day of my life: pink, yellow, orange, and lime green. But even though I'm so loyal—trust me when I say this—I have fun trying new things!"
Chapter 6: "Nerds & Smarties #Bookwormz"
"I'm not saying I'm a rocket scientist (though that would be awesome) or that I'm any better than all my brilliant and talented friends. What makes me different is that I'm proud of my intelligence and not afraid to say it! Hence why I'm writing a book! (Why are people so afraid to admit it's fun to read?)"
