What would you ask Zoella if you had the chance? The YouTube celebrity isn’t shy of interviews, having spent years chatting to magazines, TV shows and radio stations about her experience as one of the most popular YouTubers in the world. But it seemed to take a turn for the worse recently when Zoella, AKA Zoe Sugg, faced the one question she did NOT want to be asked.
Let’s be real, more people are interested in Zoe than ever – for good and bad reasons. If the mainstream press aren’t berating Zoe for posting an innocent snap in her Calvin Kleins, they’re congratulating her on winning the Victoria’s Secret award for Sexiest Beauty Star. And people are eating it up- everyone is dying to know what Zoe is doing next, what she’s wearing, who she’s filming with and what she’s up to. So we weren’t at all surprised to hear that a journalist from an unnamed publication went WAY too far when quizzing the YouTube sensation for an interview.
Talking about her interview with blogger and author Emma Gannon of GirlLostInTheCity, Zoe claimed being interviewed for Emma’s podcast was so amazing because she was just chatting to a friend- “No pressures, weird questions or scary journos” Zoe added. Of course, this lead to Zoe’s fans asking her about the bad interview experience she’s had and we weren’t quite expecting the answer she gave…
“One asked me how old I was when I lost my virginity” Zoe replied to fan Soph, AKA omgbellamy. Now, is it just us or did you also have to read that several times?! What’s even worse about the situation is that the interview took place in Zoe’s flat! We’re not entirely sure who would dare step over that line so we don’t blame Zoe for fearing scary journalists.
Zoe said didn’t answer the question, instead her jaw just dropped to the floor and she encouraged the interviewing to move on. Awks!

Hopefully when Zoe visits We The Unicorns HQ one day, she’ll feel like she’s just chatting to a bunch of friendly Unicorns (or something like that…)
