During Instagram Live, a fan asked JoJo if she was subscribing to labels. "I've been thinking about it, but the reason I won't say this answer is because I don't really know that answer," she replied. "I think people are great; I think people are really amazing people. Right now I'm super-super happy and I want to share everything with the world, but I also want to keep things in my life private until they're ready be public. "
She took the opportunity to support her fans of all sexual orientations, especially those who are struggling to get out. "Right now it's important that you know, no matter who you love, that it's okay. It's great and the world is there for you. There are so many people who are there for you. I know each one Situation is different and it may be harder for some people and easier for some to come out or be themselves, but I think coming out has this stigma – that it's this really, really scary thing, but it's not anymore. "
JoJo continued, "There are so many accepting and loving people out there that it is fine. Of course people will say that it is not normal, but nothing is normal. There is literally nothing normal about anyone and it is in." Okay, Not Normal It's okay to be a little bit different, it's okay to be a little bit weird, weird to be different. We should never be scared of that. "Check out her full Instagram Live below.
