YouTube Wednesday: meghanrosette, the witty beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru that you will want to be BFFs with!!!

Hello people of the internet, please allow me for a moment to paint a picture for you. A 16 year old girl receives news one summer from her doctor that she has mono, so she must begin bed rest. Now usually teenagers spend the summer time hanging out with friends, going on trips, swimming, etc.. So what can a 16 year old do during the summer for fun if she’s stuck at home? Well if you ask the girl behind the extremely popular YouTube channel ‘meghanrosette’, you start a career launching YouTube channel.


Meghan Rienks, (whose last name isn’t actually Rosette, the name was created because Meghan’s middle name is Rose) was born on August 4th, 1993 in a city near San Francisco, CA. Meghan has said that she was a “dramatic” child, and officially caught the acting bug after a 3rd grade production of ‘The Wiz’ (where Meghan played a munchkin…o.k. everyone say it with me…awwwww…I’m mean seriously a 3rd grader playing a munchkin, that is just too cute!). Meghan then began taking acting, voice, and dance classes in order to further explore her love of performing. She began experimenting with makeup in the middle school, and continued acting.. Once Meghan entered High School, she soon began performing in numerous school plays. However, Meghan’s most important high school activity would occur the summer before her senior year, when Meghan contracted mono from sharing a soda can with her friend. Although most people would hide in their room and cry over this, Meghan took the advice of her mother, and began a YouTube channel. So, on June 16th, 2010 the channel ‘meghanrosette’ was born, and Meghan’s life was forever changed (Here’s Meghan’s 1st video where she does a fashion haul with one of her friends: Haul with dancer4life34! – YouTube).


On the surface, Meghan’s channel seems like that of any other young guru however, once you watch just a few minutes of any of her 412 videos, you can see that this girl is anything but ordinary. Meghan is not openly knowledgeable about fashion trends, beauty secrets, and everyday life issues, but she also has a charisma and ease on camera that instantly draws you in. She is also extremely witty and goofy, which makes her very relatable, and only adds to her overall charm. I first discovered Meghan a few months ago when I saw her on an episode of the hit show IMO (which stands for In My Opinion), on the super popular AwesomnessTV YouTube channel. On IMO, Meghan is on a rotating panel, where the panelists discuss a wide variety such as; fashion trends, celebrities, relationship/friendship issues, etc. (basically it’s a teen/young adult version of ‘The View’). When I first saw Meghan on IMO, I instantly found her very interesting and funny, and wanted to learn more about her.


After I watched a few of her videos, I could see why she (as of December 10th, 2013) has 535,602 subscribers on her channel. Meghan is not only adored by her large fan base, but has also grabbed the attention of many important fashion and beauty publications. She has been featured in magazines such as Teen Vogue and Seventeen. Meghan has also interviewed celebrities and has done red carpet coverage for Seventeen magazine (here’s a video of Meghan interviewing Ashley Rickards, the star of MTV’s popular show ‘Awkward’: My First Time Tag with Ashley Rickards – YouTube). Along with working on her growing YouTube career, Meghan has also continued acting, and was recently on the hit AwesomnessTV show. She also stars on the YouTube show ‘The Goreys’, as Abigail Gorey (here’s a link to the first episode: Hello Dr. Jacobs – Episode 1 – YouTube). Because of all of these amazing accomplishments that she’s had in such a short time span, I would definitely recommend that EVERYONE keep an eye on Meghan, she will definitely be a huge star soon.


Another reason why I highly recommend Meghan’s channel, is because she is very open and honest with her fans. In her ‘Draw My Life’ video (here’s the link to that video:Draw My Life | MeghanRosette – YouTube), Meghan admitted to having insecurity issues in middle school due to her appearance, and also stated that her elementary school friends shunned her because they were popular and she was not. Meghan has also spoken about the bullying she received from her two best friends in college. She admits that she became anxious, OCD, and suffered a great depression because of what occurred between her and these friends. Although Meghan says that she is in a better mental state now, I think that it was very brave that she decided to reveal some of the struggles she has faced. Her story is truly inspiring, and proves that you can do whatever you set your mind too as long as you follow your dreams and ignore any haters. I think Taylor Swift said it best in her song ‘Ours’, when she states, “People throw rocks at things that shine…”. Due to her bubbly personality, natural charisma, and wit, I certainly see a bright future ahead for Meghan in vlogging and acting. Keep on shinning girl!

YouTube Wednesday: Lennon & Maisy Stella

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we are going to feature emerging YouTube/TV stars Lennon and Maisy Stella. On May 29th 2012, 12 year old Lennon and 8 year old Maisy uploaded a cover video of ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ originally recorded by Swedish singer Robyn. When the Stella sisters uploaded this video to YouTube, they had no idea that this decision would change their lives forever.


The girls’ version of the song was an acappella rendition in which only empty butter tubs were used as “beat makers” (this method had all ready been used by Swedish group Erato, whose video went viral on YouTube when it was uploaded in January of 2012). As of November 12, 2013, Lennon & Maisy have 21,270,708 views on YouTube. In the video Lennon (the 12 year old), shows great vocal control and technique while singing the main vocals of the song and Maisy (the 8 year old) does an amazing job helping with the harmonies. This video is not only cute, but so well done I suggest you check it out here à: ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ Robyn/ Erato cover by Lennon & Maisy Stella – YouTube


Since the video has gone viral, the sisters have performed at the Grand Ole Opry, the 2013 CMA Fest, The View, the ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ show, the CMA Awards, and numerous other venues. In late 2012, it was announced that the girls were going to be added to the cast of the hit ABC show Nashville, The sisters have said in an interview on ‘The View’ that Maisy originally auditioned for the show before their viral video was uploaded, and after hearing the girls sing together, the casting directors decided to hire both sisters. It was announced in early 2013 that the girls’ were promoted to series regulars for the show’s second season.


Not only are these girls great actresses, and amazing at making cover songs sound unique, they also have an original song titled ‘Bright Side’, which is located here à: Lennon & Maisy – “Bright Side” (Acoustic) | On Air with Ryan Seacrest – YouTube .
