Bethany Mota hugs an excited fan during at meet and greet event at the Aeropostale store on Sunday (December 7) in Irvine, Calif.
The 19-year-old YouTube phenomenon recently opened up about why she prefers the internet to television.
“When you do TV, there are all of these people — directors, producers — you have to go to for approval to do things,” Bethany said (via Today). “Online, I’m my own director, my own producer…I can make it happen without approval from someone else.”
She added about Dancing with the Stars, “It was a fun experience. I look at YouTube and what I do online as more powerful than that.”
