comments

Imagine, for a moment, you're a teenager again. Think about the artists, celebrities, and bands you used to obsess over. Now, think about what it would feel like to actually meet Jonathan Taylor Thomas those people. Is it safe to assume your 13-year-old self would probably freak out? Of course you would.

Essentially, who is the new guard? The answer: Michelle Phan, Bethany Mota, and Rosanna Pansino. These three have built beauty, fashion, and culinary YouTube empires, respectively, thanks to a seriously dedicated audience of teenaged viewers.
