Eva Gutowskion YouTube Trends: Being a Leader Keeps You Places Longer

Eva Gutowskion YouTube Trends: Being a Leader Keeps You Places Longer

Eva Gutowski has opened up about being a leader or follower in the YouTube world nowadays.

The 23-year-old social star spoke with Galore recently and was asked about her thoughts on the toxic side of YouTube and people like Logan Paul.

“I’ve always been an observer before I dive into something. I think it’s smart to observe where trends are going and then decide if I want to be a follower or a leader,” she told the mag. “I’ve always noticed that while being a follower gets you places faster, being a leader keeps you places longer. I tell myself to step back and look at who I am as a person, and if someone is doing something that’s not me, I stick to me, and it’s always worked out for the better.”

“I also think that everyone has a responsibility with their audience – if you have 9 million followers, or just 10 people watching your stuff,” Eva continued. “Who you’re around influences how you think, so I always try to surround myself with the most open-minded and educated people. I try to live the same way, so that my audience can also grow to be educated and open-minded. I want everyone that follows me to grow up to be a good person, vote for what they believe in, and be worldly, educated people that stay ‘woke.’ That’s my goal.”

Peyton Elizabeth Lee's Acting Idol Anne Hathaway Pops Up in Tonight's 'Andi Mack'

Peyton Elizabeth Lee's Acting Idol Anne Hathaway Pops Up in Tonight's 'Andi Mack'

Terri Minsky is dropping little clues all over tonight’s special one-hour episode of Andi Mack.

On top of including a lot of bar mitzvah traditions from Joshua Rush‘s own experiences, the creator is also dropping a cool caricature of Anne Hathaway in the episode.

Anne just happens to be one of Peyton Elizabeth Lee‘s acting idols.

“That went back to Peyton’s audition,” Terri says. “I can be very sentimental and I just remember knowing that we had found [the character] ‘Andi Mack.’ I knew that we were going to make the show because we had found her.”

She continues, “I don’t remember everything Peyton said [about Anne Hathaway], but I remember that she said Anne Hathaway was her favorite actress. Peyton was saying, ‘Don’t you think she’s brilliant? Isn’t she beautiful?’ It was the way she adored Anne that made me feel attached to Peyton.”

“I was in the room with this girl who was going to make this show come true, and she said Anne Hathaway was her role model. I came to a point in the script where I needed the name of an actress, and I said ‘I’m going to put Anne Hathaway there!’”

Andi Mack airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

Yara Shahidi Explains How Fashion Can Contribute to Political Movements

Yara Shahidi Explains How Fashion Can Contribute to Political Movements

Yara Shahidi looks fierce in pink in her cover shoot for Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine PorterEdit!

Here’s what the Grown-ish actress had to share with the outlet:

On being laughed at for wanting to be an activist: “I remember being at the White House and somebody asked me what I wanted to do. I said that I wanted to be a thought leader and she just kinda chuckled and said, ‘You need credentials for that.’ It was really off-putting. I come from such strong support; I come from the land of ‘of course’. Like, ‘of course this is going to happen’ because we have willed it to be and we are going to put in the work to make it happen.”

On how she deals with the pressure of being a teen star: “It’s really nice because so much of my support has been through just being Yara. Whether it is the people who got to know me through you giving me a platform to guest-edit Teen Vogue, or those kinds of opportunities in which people are getting to know me, I feel like they are getting to know my reality versus just knowing me through the show. So, they’re expecting an authentic human and that is one thing that I can provide. Usually I am just a kid in a hoodie, jeans, and a fanny pack.”

On how fashion can contribute to political movements: “[Fashion] it is so important. It’s why I wear a ton of political T-shirts because I get to wear things that state my political opinions. Fashion is associated with an ideology. You could wear a beret, but when you tilt it to the side, you go from Parisian to Black Panther.”
