Ricky Martin came out as gay with Oakley’s help.
As goofy as he is, his videos are even goofier. Joe Sugg, a YouTuber who goes by the name ThatcherJoe, is the younger brother of fellow YouTuber, the one and only Zoe Sugg a.k.a Zoella. Joe is such a goofball and I mean that with all the love in the world. While posting videos on his main channel like every other YouTuber, he has a vlog channel ‘ThatcherJoeVlogs’ and a gaming channel ‘ThatcherJoeGames’. Talk about a triple threat! And HE’S OBSESSED WITH COMICS! He has a graphic novel inspired by his love for comics coming out called ‘Username: Evie’.
He’s British. That’s enough for the girls to go crazy. He started posting videos on YouTube in 2010. His charming wit and fun videos is just the start of why he’s an amazing YouTube personality. With guys like Marcus it’s pretty self explanatory. Check out his videos such as ‘Weird Things Teenagers Do’ and you’ll see why he’s so lovable and down to earth.

On June 23rd 2015, she released her debut album ‘Unbreakable Smile’ which led to her hit single ‘Nobody Love’ which became her first ‘Billboard Hot 100 Appearance’. She deserves the praise and success. You must’ve heard the popular hit ‘Should’ve Been Us’. It’s a catchy, upbeat tune that’ll get you hooked. Getting eliminated from American idol is like a blessing, isn’t it?
I’m sorry, I had to save the best for last. This girl is someone who’s videos I love watching. She appeals to a bigger audience and when I mean bigger, I mean Globally! Canadian born Lilly Singh decided to make videos at a time when she was going through depression and found making videos a way to self medicate. I’d say she’s done a fantastic job in doing that as well as putting a smile on millions of fans around the world. From collaborations with Madhuri Dixit to MirandaSings, Zoella and so many other YouTubers including appearances from The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar. This girl has seriously got her name locked down as one of the most popular yet influential personalities today in the world. Just to name a few, ‘How To Be Good Parents’, ‘How Girls Get Ready’, ‘Types Of People On Instagram’ and ‘The 6 Stages of Having A Crush’. Plus she has a tour documentary coming out called ‘A Trip To Unicorn Island’. If I had the option to keep writing about this wonderful creature I would never stop. Seriously, I wouldn’t.
