The four rising stars in music and modeling opened up about social media, their success and some of their biggest achievements. Check it:
Troye Sivan on his success: “The fact that everything is happening the way it is, it sends me into giggles. Like, the fact that I woke up last week and was like, ‘Oh, I just need to quickly fly across the country to do a photo shoot with Mario Testino and then fly back to play a show’ – I don’t know how else to process it but to laugh. Sometimes it feels like I’m in Zoolander. I went to the Billboard Awards, I was backstage, and Rihanna just casually walked by. I was like, What the fuck? Hilarious.”
Taylor Hill on not letting social media rule her life: “I’ve just learned to be myself. Social media is a huge part of my life, but I don’t post a steady rhythm of pictures. I don’t post at a certain time of day to get the most views. You learn to live your life with it.”
Lucky Blue Smith on his band, The Atomics: “Music for us was the biggest priority but modeling took off faster than we expected. So, that’s taken the lead for a little bit, but we’ve been writing and practicing the whole time.”
Kacy Hill on performing at Madison Square Garden: “I had a moment looking out at the audience. It was surreal. I realized how badly I want to be an artist and how badly I want people to feel the same way about my music. It was like, I really want this, for myself.”
You can meet Troye and Taylor during a signing at V Magazine in NYC on August 25 from 5 to 6 PM.
