When beauty vlogger Tanya Burr announced she’d be on the cover of one of the UK’s best selling magazines, we did a little cheer.
Whilst YouTubers featuring in magazines and newspapers is no longer a shock, there’s something about putting a vlogger on the cover of an adult’s magazine that feels like the world is finally sitting up and noticing the star quality of our favourite content creators.
And unlike tween magazines which often feature Zoella and the like on the front cover, Tanya is now starring alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian and Amy Schumer. So, have YouTubers officially become A-list?
Whilst Tanya’s fans are using social media to show their support, we’re yet to really see what the general public think. With traditional media often taking a bite out of vlogging as a career and a big focus on money, we’re interested in checking out the subsequent interview and whether the focus pulls away from celebrity and focuses more on the talent and dedication it takes to build a brand like Tanya’s.
