So, who actually is our Web Crush this week? Well, this might not be surprising, but many or our favorites were featured in this week Variety, and we’ve got a pretty heavy crush on them all. Some, even proving to be more popular amongst US teenagers than many mainstream celebrities.
That’s right, more teens prefer YouTubers to Hollywood’s current “It” girl, Jennifer Lawrence.
Q scores were determined to be the most reliable indicator for the survey’s selection of mainstream stars, whose popularity can be fleeting among teenage demographics. In addition, many prominent celebrities well known to younger consumers may not necessarily be the most popular among them because their prominence is driven more by notoriety, as opposed to true appeal.
Marbles was so proud of this week’s Variety, that she posted this Instagram photo showing all of her fellow online stars that made it into the magazine including YouTuber, actress, and now author, Grace Helbig and Vine star Cameron Dallas.
