Imagine your "happy place" for a minute. Are you in bed surrounded by blankets and pillows, and you're feeling cozy, and the world is absolutely perfect? No matter where your paradise place of choice may be, it's probably fair to say spending time on YouTube is part of your perfect plan to unwind! YouTube has been a source of unlimited entertainment since its 2005 debut. It's so easy to spend countless hours watching music videos, learning a new skill, or discovering a new beauty tutorial. YouTube has become such a vital part of our culture, it's really no surprise YouTube has given us a number of celebrities who have become superstars!
YouTube has been a pioneer in entertainment since its earliest days. The website's widespread appeal came from the fact anyone could have the ability to make a video about absolutely anything, and post it online for the entire world to see! Many of the most popular celebrities on the internet today took advantage of YouTube's uniqueness by turning on their webcams, and creating their own channels, therefore, showing the world what they're made of! Since YouTube's content is so diverse, many YouTube celebrities, or "YouTubers" have dedicated their channels to documenting their lives, giving us a glimpse into their personalities, and an opportunity to connect with them!
