JoJo Siwa has opened up about being a child star in Hollywood.

The 20-year-old former Nickelodeon star told Nova’s Smallzy’s Surgery on Thursday she feels like she was ‘taken advantage of as a kid’.

‘I had shady deals and yes, I got f**ked over as a kid and taken advantage of as a kid but not in a sexual way, it was a business way,’ she said.

‘I think that to hear children’s dark stories… that child stars were groomed or child stars were in some of the worst cases molested. I mean, it so sickening.

‘But I do have to say that I really appreciate those child stars coming forward, being open about their stories, because that is stuff that I’m lucky that I didn’t have to deal with. But it is still going on.’

JoJo rose to fame after joining the cast of Dance Moms in its fourth season at just nine years old.

However, she recently ditched her child-friendly image and unveiled a sneak peek of her latest track, Karma, in which she describes herself as a ‘bad girl’.

‘I was a bad girl, I did some bad things/I swear I did it all for fun and it meant nothing,’ she crooned in the first verse.

‘Another late night, another crazy mood/And I didn’t think twice what it would do to you.’ 

She proceeds to sing that she’s always been a ‘wild child’ and it was only a ‘matter of time before’ she ‘blew it’. 

The Nickelodeon alum, who became a sensation among tweens for her hits like Boomerang, went on to drop her first swears words in song.

‘Karma is a b**ch, I should’ve known better/If I had a wish I would’ve never f**ked around,’ she declared in the chorus. ‘Karma is a b**ch/And she’s with you right now.’

‘I had shady deals and yes, I got f**ked over as a kid and taken advantage of as a kid but not in a sexual way, it was a business way,’ she said

To the shock of many of her fans, Jojo also uploaded an up-close photo of her bottom and various racy images, including her flipping off the camera and holding another woman’s waist.

Many commenters compared her shedding her child-friendly image to Miley Cyrus, a fellow former child star, who also got rid of her squeaky clean ‘good girl’ image in an extreme way.

‘She’s basically letting y’all know she’s no longer a child and she’s not going to act like it anymore… so if you don’t want your kids (who followed her because she was a kid) to see her doing adult things this is your warning to unfollow… it’s not that hard to read and understand,’ one fan wrote.

Another referenced Taylor Swift’s hit song, Look What You Made Me Do, by writing: ‘Sorry the old Jojo can’t come to the phone right now; why? Oh, bc she’s dead! So excited for this new era of Jojo!’

JoJo rose to fame after joining the cast of Dance Moms in its fourth season at just nine years old. She is also known for wearing big bows in her hair throughout her adolescence (pictured in 2018)
