Who is Troye Sivan?

The ultimate 'stroke' millennial, Troye is a popstar/youtuber/actor and model. And he's beautiful, with shiny dark ringlets and, in his own words, 'the bluest eyes in the Youtube community.' He first found fame with a small role in in X-Men Origins: Wolverine when he was 12 years old, but it's his youtube channel that's made him a star and kickstarted his pop career. He began by posting Amy Winehouse and Justin Bieber covers - now his vlogs cover anything from sex to celebrities to fashion. His coming out video has over 6 million hits and is seriously lovely.

Troye was born in South African but grew up in Australia. He now jets around the world, singing and youtubing, and frequently documents his travels with short Instagram films. He's fast becoming best friends with the entire A-list.

What's he up to now?

He's now mainly a popstar. His first album, Blue Neighbourhood, was released in 2015 and featured hits like Youth and Wild, which you've definitely heard of and if you haven't you should plug into ASAP. It debuted at number 7 in the US charts and got a lot of good feedback, receiving comparisons to Lorde and Taylor Swift. He accompanied the release with a 2015 Troye Sivan Live concert that toured America, Europe and Australia.

What's he up to in the future?

He's currently in the middle of his Blue Neighbourhood tour that's going all over the world - and he's still youtubing!
