Welcome, people of all ages, and gather round! You’re in for a treat today, as we shall be taking you into our own personal time machine. Sorry, we shant be going back to the age of dinosaurs. No, not to the age of pirates either. Today you’ll be taken back to the days before “vlogging” was a word, back when YouTube was just another site in the deep ocean of the internet. You’re going to witness some famous faces in their natural state, and discover the 6 CELEBRITIES YOU DIDN’T KNOW WERE YOUTUBERS. So who do you think jumped on the YouTube bandwagon way ahead of its time? Let’s find out …
Miss One-Less-Problem has been blasting through our airwaves for only a few short years now, so who knew that she had been making YouTube videos for SEVEN YEARS?! Just two years ago she uploaded her everyday makeup tutorial, and even partook in the Chubby Bunny Challenge! We love this darling more and more each vid.
Anyone used to watch Taylor Swift’s vlogs on the regular, before “vlog” was even a word in our vocabulary? Yeah, we’re guilty as charged, too. T.Swizzle was a professional vlogger with her friends and family, and even revealed in an interview that if she hadn’t had made it big as a singer, she would’ve become a video editor. Virtual high-five to you, Miss Swizzle! YouTube loves this girl, and so do we.
“Teen Wolf’s” fan favorite (sorry, Tyler Posey, but Dylan has that geeky-chic thing going) got his start by uploading comedy bits to YouTube back in 2007 under his channel name Moviekidd826. Even after ACTUALLY becoming a movie kid, the fact that he’s kept these videos online makes us love him even more.
When you’re a millionaire at 15 and your version of high school is a Disney soundstage, YouTube is the only logical place to wage war between your fellow tween darlings. Miley and her (ex) best friend Mandy took it upon themselves to make parodies of their frenemies Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez for the entire interwebs to watch. And it seems that still to this day, these grown-up tweens can’t manage to get along. Nice to know some things never change.
5 Seconds of Summer
The newest boy group (sorry: “rock band”) to win over fangirls’ hearts are the awesome Aussies of 5 Seconds of Summer. Sure, we don’t get their name, but aren’t they too cute to boot? Fun fact: They actually got their start on YouTube when they were just 15 years old — and now they’re touring with One Direction. Can you say “upgrade”?
Yes! It’s Kitty Purry herself. Before she told us all about her kissing habits, and long before she married that English dude, and even longer before she dated lothario John Mayer, Katy was just a Cali gal being goofy on camera for selected fans to watch.
