Teen content machine Brendan Jordan sky-rocketed to viral stardom after completely owning his moment as a background body on the local news. That girl on the right probably wishes she hadn't served him the side-eye like that, because he's now a YouTube powerhouse and has over 500,000 followers on Instagram.
And he looks absolutely incredible:
Brendan Jordan's transformation is blowing everyone away. That picture on the right is from a modeling gig for designer Marco Marco that happened about a week ago.
If his style kind of reminds you of someone, like Miley Cyrus, you could say she's been an influence:
It's very interesting to watch someone mature who seemed to have a preternatural level of confidence to begin with. That video is probably the most awkward Brendan Jordan will ever be, and he's absolutely slaying. Brendan is also very open about being a part of the LGBT community, loving make-up and fashion, and experimenting with gender fluidity. He's comfortable with being referred to as either he or she, and says at only 15 he's not really sure how it's all going to shake out, but experimentation is key.
If there's one take-away from Brendan's story, it's that you should always completely be yourself, even if it involves absolutely destroying a simple news segment.
