“I do have the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world,” said Siwa. “It's not something I'm ashamed of, I just haven't shown the internet yet.”
The TikTok star, who made her coming-out announcement on Twitter, revealed that she didn’t put too much thought into it. She was on a FaceTime call with her girlfriend at the time, who encouraged her to make it official.
“I don't want it to be such a big thing,” said Siwa. “Like, what am I going to do, have a coming out party? No, it's just who I am... I was on the phone — spontaneous.”
While Siwa’s spontaneous announcement was met with support from celebrities and fans, it was risky. She could have lost endorsements and viewership.
“Technically, it was a really big risk posting that,” said Siwa. “But if I lost everything that I've created because of being myself and because of loving who I want to love I don't want it. That's not what I want if I can't love who I want to love.”
Siwa also announced that she will be starring in the upcoming Nickelodeon musical film, The J Team.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
