The most beloved of celebrities are the ones who appear to be relatable in some way and can give others insight into what it's really like to walk in their shoes. With the internet innovation of YouTube, stars have been given the opportunity to be personal and silly with their fans. While celebrities always seem to be on camera, they appear to enjoy being the one who gets to control the camera too. By creating their own content, they're able to show the world sides of them we don't always see. Take a look at this list of ten celebrities who are giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at their life via YouTube.
10 Kylie Jenner
If you thought you've already seen everything going on in Kylie Jenner's life through Keeping Up with the Kardashians, think again! Kylie's channel not only contains the iconic "To Our Daughter" video where she finally revealed that she had been pregnant and given birth, but also features Kylie showing off make-up, answering questions from fans, and hanging out with her best friend Jordyn. (Although Jordyn hasn't been in any videos recently...) If you want beauty tips or a closer look at the "real" Kylie, look no further than her YouTube channel, which has over 4.2 million subscribers.
9 Maddie Ziegler
Maddie Ziegler first rose to fame on the reality television show Dance Moms when she was just a little girl, and then shot to super-stardom when she began starring in Sia's music videos and live performances. As you could probably guess, her YouTube channel features some dancing, but there's more to Maddie than just that. You can tune into her channel to see her try on different make-up looks, answer questions from fans, and goof off with her little sister Mackenzie. While Maddie is probably surrounded by rebellious child stars, her videos make it seem like the dancer just likes to hang out and be an average kid.
8 Shenae Grimes-Beech
While Shenae Grimes-Beech's big breakout role was "Annie Wilson" in the reboot of Beverly Hills 90210, her main role right now is "mom." Though Shenae still often talks about her life in "La La Land" a.k.a. the entertainment industry on her YouTube channel, she's also dealing with being a new mother. With such a life-changing event and all the up's and down's that come with it, it's no surprise she has some videos on motherhood! For those who don't have a little one, you may get a kick out of her product reviews and make-up tutorials. Also, keep an eye out for appearances from her former 90210 co-stars.
7 Ashley Tisdale
Ashley Tisdale's YouTube channel features a mixture of some of her old music and her new music. While there are plenty of clips on her channel from her High School Musical days, she also just released a couple of new singles and music videos this year. There's plenty more content to Ashley's channel than just music though—make-up tips, work-outs, and meditation advice are also available on her channel. Her music is undeniably the coolest part though, especially when she brings in stars like Lea Michele, Debby Ryan, and her old HSM co-stars Lucas Grabeel and Vanessa Hudgens for live duets.
6 Russell Brand
If you're more into intellectual discussions and life advice, check out the YouTube channel of British comedian Russel Brand. Russell says his channel provides "true news" or "trews," and his videos certainly do seem to provide content that everyone can relate to or understand. Russell discusses topics such as relationships, politics, mental health issues, pop culture, and how to get through hard times. If you want to feel understood or learn something new, consider joining Russell's other 1.6 million subscribers. Oh, and since it's comedian Russell Brand, prepare yourself for a little snark!
5 Jenna Dewan
Actress Jenna Dewan has a super fun lifestyle channel. Her videos are around make-up, skin care, work-outs, fashion, cleaning, recipes, hairstyles... pretty much anything you can think of! Her coolest videos, however, are her choreography videos. Jenna showcases tons of dance numbers that will have you grooving in your seat. She also gives you insight into her personal life. For instance, she uploaded a super-sweet throwback video of her and ex-husband Channing Tatum auditioning for Step Up together. Too cute. Jenna also appears to have a bit of a spiritual side too, as she's uploaded videos about crystals and tarot cards. Definitely check this channel out if you're curious about that kind of stuff!
4 Karlie Kloss
It's almost impossible to think of anyone who's ever been a Victoria's Secret Angel as normal and down-to-earth. Supermodel Karlie Kloss' channel "Klossy," however, proves that they are! With over 769,000 subscribers, Karlie still appears as glamorous as ever, especially in her travel vlogs. But her other videos—which consist of workouts, recipes, and beauty tips—show that anyone can learn to live a lifestyle like hers. Also be sure to check out Karlie's other channel, Koding with Klossy, which focuses on computer coding and female empowerment in STEM-related fields. A good mixture of both beauty and brains!
3 Madelaine Petsch
If you can't get enough of the hit television show Riverdale, check out the YouTube channel of Madelaine Petsch, who plays the character "Cheryl Blossom" on the CW series Riverdale. Madelaine gives her over 2.4 million subscribers an inside look on what it's like to star on a TV show and work on a set, all the while managing to be completely charming and relatable in the process. Madelaine also includes her fellow cast members in her videos, but sometimes it's just her going on adventures by herself in Los Angeles. While Riverdale fans are sure to love it, Madeline is entertaining enough for those who aren't into the show too.
2 Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stunned the world when he went from wrestler to talented actor. Now, his YouTube channel seems to combine both of his skills. While there are plenty of videos focusing on fitness and stunts, there are also videos showing what life is like working on his acting projects. Follow The Rock to industry events, or get a look at what it's like behind-the-scenes of a movie he's working on. This channel is technically shared by Seven Bucks Digital Studios, so you'll occasionally see videos with other people in them talking about wrestling or celebrities. 99% of the videos contain Dwayne Johnson and his goofy charm, however.
1 Will Smith
Will Smith is arguably one of the most famous celebrities with a YouTube channel. And seeing as it is Will Smith of all people, of course, the channel is super entertaining. Will uploads a variety of videos where viewers get to see the actor ham it up and participate in shenanigans with his famous family. Not only does he give his over 5 million subscribers, an inside look on his travels and family vacations, but he also tells interesting stories from his past and gives viewers insight into his various adventures. (Skydiving? Bungee jumping? Will has done it all.) For thrills and cute family moments, give this channel a watch.
