Singer and dancer JoJo Siwa said she realized she was queer while at the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Well, there is certainly no place more magical to have an “aha” moment than Disney World. It’s no secret that the former Dance Moms star loves to visit the Disney parks during her downtime. Siwa has shared photos online from her frequent visits, including when she went to Disneyland with her Dancing With the Stars partner, Jenna Johnson. The young star has now revealed that not only is the place magical for having insanely good churros, it’s also a place full of love and heartbreak.

“I was here for 14 days with a girl that was my really good friend and I realized that, ‘Oh, I like her.’ And having all those feelings while just being in the most magical place in the world and the happiest place on Earth was so cool. We’re not together anymore, but we did have some really fun, happy memories here,” she said.

Prew and Siwa dated on and off before ending their relationship in August of 2022.

“I’ve been single for almost two months and it’s OK, it’s not deep I promise, it’s, everything’s fine,” Prew said in a live stream. “Not everything has to be messy and gross because it’s not and I just want to clear the air.”
