JoJo Siwa Laughed Harder Than Anyone at ‘SNL’s ‘Gay Pop’ Parody Sketch: ‘ICONIC’

JoJo Siwa proved she totally gets the joke on Monday morning (May 6) when she posted her reaction to a hilarious bit from this weekend’s “Weekend Update” in SNL where cast member Chloe Fineman tried to channel the off-the-charts energy of Siwa’s latest transformation.


In a since timed-out Instagram Story post, Siwa, 20, gushed about expert mimic Fineman’s take on her new “bad girl” persona, writing, “ICONIC. I literally don’t know what to say. This is f–ing crazy. 3 and a half minute skit on SNL…”

Siwa included a clip from the segment in which Fineman modeled theKISS-inspired black-and-silver jumpsuit and face paint from the singer’s “Karma” video, periodically writhing around in her chair to the track with a turnt-to-11 energy that seemed to surprise co-anchor Colin Jost. “That’s right Colin, I’m a bad girl now!” Fineman said with a growl while throwing up devil horns.

“I used to be rainbow sparkles… now I’m black sparkles!” Fineman said excitedly. “I look like if a figure skater joined a street gang!” In keeping with Siwa’s original proclamation that she “invented” gay pop, fake JoJo said no one had ever done what she’s doing now. “I’m 20 and gay. I’m the first gay girl in the world!”

Counterfeit Siwa then doubled-down on her claim that she invented gay pop, making a mind blown gesture as Jose suggested what she’s describing is “just pop.”

Siwa came out strong to announce this new era in April with the new look and attitude, but after comments she made to Billboard in an interview about how she is forging a trail for a new brand of LGBTQ-friendly pop raised some questions, the singer clarified her original statement in a TMZ video. “I think I just want to make it more clear that gay pop is a genre,” Siwa said. “I am not the inventor of gay pop, for sure not. But I do want to be a piece of making it bigger than it already is. I Want to bring more attention to it… I’m not the president [of gay pop], but I might be the CEO, or the CMO. I can be the CMO, the chief marketing officer, and use my marketing tactics whether people like it or not.”
