"Youth' Vid Personifies Today's Aesthetic
Troye Sivan, 20, released a music video for “Youth’ yesterday (Feb 24). It features actresses Amandla Stenberg and Lia Marie Johnson.
The South African singer, himself gay, has gained praise for normalizing LGBTQ relationships in his videos. Besides the representation in the new pastel video, which accurately captures the aesthetic of modern mainstream youth, he himself isn’t bad to watch!
Now living in Australia, Sivan gained popularity first through Youtube — yet another way in which he moderns 2016’s youth. Moreover, he played young James Howlett in the X-Men film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. What’s your opinion on Sivan? Tweet to @cara_conte and @BWA_com.
