Love them or hate them, either way they found their fame through a handheld camera and crafted a new kind of celebrity. That’s right; I’m talking about YouTubers. Here are just a few that have skyrocketed to YouTube fame:
Since first putting his face in front of the camera back in 2007, Oakley has gained a thriving following of Youtube subscribers as well as twitter and instagram followers. An American Youtuber and activist, Oakley’s videos mainly consist of pop culture, humor, and queer politics.
Full name Zoe Elizabeth Sugg, is an English born author, fashion and beauty vlogger, and YouTuber. Zoella created her first video back in 2009 while working under the British retailer New Look.
An American YouTube personality, comedian, and vlogger, Jenna Marbles (real name Jenna Maurey) has become an internet sensation ever since her video titled “How To Avoid Talking To People You Don’t Want To Talk To” went viral back in 2011. Marbles has since gone on to do collaborations with other YouTubers, released her own brand of dog toys, co host the podcast Jenna and Julien, and host the SiriusXM Hits 1 “YouTube 15” countdown weekly.
Australian-Chinese vlogger Wengie directs her focus more towards asian beauty tips and tricks, as well as asian beauty products. She also vlogs about fashion and occasionally throws in a a motivational video with a personal flair because it’s her passion to inspire girls around her to chase their dreams.
