JoJo Siwa says her relationship with Nickelodeon isn’t fractured beyond repair amid a dispute over her upcoming tour … but she says it’s gonna take a lot for them to mend fences.
We got JoJo outside the Loews Hotel in NYC and asked her about Tuesday’s beef with Nickelodeon. She says the network’s blocking her from performing songs from her recently released musical when she embarks on a 37-city tour in January.
JoJo told us her problem is Nickelodeon treating her like she’s just a brand … and forgetting she’s a person too.
I go out on tour in January. My movie musical was just released (with 6 new original songs)… Nickelodeon told me today that I’m not allowed to perform/add any of the songs from the film into my show. These are MY songs, MY voice, MY writing. Does this seem fair???
You can tell from her tone … JoJo’s ticked off the relationship’s gone south. She says she’s frustrated folks with less tenure than her at Nickelodeon are trying to call the shots on what she can and can’t sing.
