Popular Youtuber turned fully fledged popstar Troye Sivan has had quite a year. In fact he’s had quite a few years since publicly coming out to his millions of subscribers via his Youtube channel (actually the third-most-subscribed YouTube channel in Australia) back in August 2013. This year South-African born and Australia raised Sivan scored his first Billboard 100 hit, peaking at no.23 with ‘Youth’ from his debut album Blue Neighbourhood. He’s not only been a constant presence pon the world wide web but is also taking over our TV’s with performances on Ellen and at the 2016 VMA’s.
Honest, articulate, stylish, criminally cute and quite tall, Sivan is part of the vanguard of artists leading the way in redefining what it means to be an openly queer popstar – you can throw Years & Years’ Olly Alexander on that list too. Smashing out hits about love with the unapologetic declaration that he loves boys and it’s totes fine, this is the now, this is the future, get with it already!
We stopped by Sivan’s recent show in Berlin to take some snaps, have a chat and read his tarot!
