Social Media Star Connor Franta Announces Second Book 'Note to Self'

Connor Franta is writing another book!

If you remember, the 24-year-old social media star’s first book “A Work In Progress” was released in 2015 and spent over 16 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list.

His second will be titled “Note to Self” and Connor will “talk about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a highly-edited, share-obsessed culture; a severe struggle of love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment, with others and himself.”

“Note to Self” is now available for pre-order and will drop on April 18.

Brec Bassinger & Madelaine Petsch Totally Twinned at the EMA Awards 2016!

We had to do a double take at Brec Bassinger and Madelaine Petsch!

The two actresses, who star in Bella and the Bulldogs and Riverdale, respectively, were almost wearing the exact same style of dress! While Madelaine‘s look was definitely a dress, upon inspection, Brec‘s was actually a jumpsuit with slits up the legs.

Brec and Madelaine joined Chloe Lukasiak, Marcus Scribner, Joey Graceffa, Connor Franta, and Kodi Smit-McPhee at the 26th Annual EMA Awards held at Warner Bros. Studios on Saturday night (October 22) in Burbank, Calif., where both Shailene Woodley and Jaden Smith were honored.

Connor Franta Hopes He Can Give Fans The Best Advice He Can

Connor Franta Hopes He Can Give Fans The Best Advice He Can

Connor Franta stretches out his colorful sweater in this shot from Paper mag.

The 24-year-old social star and activist opened up about his role in the LGBTQ+ community, connecting with his fans and more. Check it:

On connecting with fans: “I’ll get DMs and tweets saying, ‘Is there any way I can talk to you personally? I’m struggling with my sexuality.’ Or, ‘I’m from the Midwest like you were, and I know my family’s not going to be accepting.’ Because of what they know about me –with my coming out video and everything else — they know that I’ve gone through it. Hopefully, I can give them the best advice that I can.”

On this presidential election’s impact: “What’s been so interesting about this whole election in general is that it’s really the first socially driven election. I don’t think people quite realize. Even since the last election — the evolution of social media in just four years is tremendous. It’s amazing and scary to see that this is potentially the future of all elections going forward.”

On the Orlando shooting: “Being a part of the LGBTQ+ community, I think it was just a natural instinct that I needed to say something about it. It felt like it was a direct attack on me and my friends, and I felt like I had to — in some way — be a part of the movement to help better it or to help move it forward; to help assist in it never happening again. Coincidentally, [the shooting] happened on my first Pride weekend in Los Angeles, and my first Pride parade in general. It was a really devastating emotional twist to have such a great Friday and Saturday of Pride weekend, and then to wake up Sunday morning to the news that something so horrific had just happened to our community.”

On his new things: “I recently launched a new collection of clothing (on Connor’s Common Culture lifestyle site). It’s going really well, and we’ve sold out of several products. It’s been fun cause I do all the design and concepts and marketing, and everything is all me — besides the actual production. But it feels like my heart is in the clothing; my stamp of approval is over everything. It’s just been so great to see that it actually does well and people appreciate all the little details.”
