Once Siwa partnered with Nickelodeon, her popularity soared to new heights. Finding a niche audience with young children, the “Boomerang” singer began making more music and expanded to additional TV shows and films. Furthermore, she utilized her image to create branded products like games, clothing, hair accessories, and more.

Shortly after revealing that she was LGBTQ, Siwa also revealed that she had a girlfriend. Later, fans would learn that Siwa was involved with 18-year-old, Kylie Prew, whom she met on a cruise ship. While Siwa has gone public with her relationships in the past, she has confessed that she’s never been happier than she is now.

In an interview with People, Siwa also got candid about the fact that her girlfriend cares about her on a deeper level. She reminisced about their first meeting and about how she found it surprising when Prew expressed the desire to know her on a personal level rather than a professional one.

“I told her my whole spiel that I tell everyone when they ask me my life story,” Siwa recalled. “She goes, ‘I could have Googled that. I want to know your life story. You just told me about your career. I want to know about you.’ And I was like, ‘No one’s ever asked me that before.'”

Siwa also shared that Prew doesn’t let what people are saying about them on the Internet influence their relationship. Since Siwa makes headlines for things as simple as changing her hair, it’s a refreshing perspective for Siwa to have in her life. “She never cares what the internet said about us,” she says. “It’s nice to have somebody in my life like that.” 

Though Siwa has come out as LGBTQ and is open about the fact that she has a girlfriend, she is still figuring out how she wants to self-identify. However, she does have a joke with her girlfriend about her preferred label.

Siwa isn’t exactly sure how she identifies just yet

“I still don’t know what I am. It’s like, I want to figure it out,” Siwa admits. “And I have this joke. Her name is Kylie. And so I say that I’m Ky-sexual. But like, I don’t know, bisexual, pansexual, Queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say gay because it just kind of covers it or Queer because I think the keyword is cool.” No matter how Siwa chooses to label herself, she seems to be in a happy and healthy relationship and we’re sure fans wish her the best.
