Another YouTuber has won another award – same old news story right?! Not this time, because Troye Sivan just won one of the most career-defining and important awards in the world, PLUS he managed to snap some selfies with three of the most iconic women in history. Basically, Troye Sivan just lived out his WILD-est dreams at this years GLAAD Awards.
After what can only be described as a whirlwind 12-months for the South African born singer, Troye dropped by the 27th Annual GLAAD Awards as a Special Guest in Los Angeles on Saturday the 2nd of April. Hosted by Ross Matthews, “the GLAAD Media Awards recognise and honour media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives”, states the official website. However, as well as being nominated for the Outstanding Music Artist award alongside big names such as Miley Cyrus and Adam Lambert, Troye went on to actually WIN the award and grab a selfie with the one and only Zendaya.
The YOUTH-ful 20-year-old tweeted out his achievement to his Twitter army by thanking them all greatly for all the support; “I just won Outstanding Music Artist at the glaad awards and could not be prouder. Thank you thank you thank you”. His win follows his debut album Blue Neighbourhood reaching number six in the Australian charts and seventh in the American charts since it’s release in December 2015.
But don’t think Troye’s evening stopped there. Shortly after his win and celebratory tweet, the Internet was blessed with the greatest 3-way selfie we will literally ever see. Piled up close and kissing each of his perfectly dimpled cheeks are Taylor Swift and Ruby Rose. We don’t need to say anything else, just look at his little smile below and feel the warmth of perfection wash over your cold and jealous body.
Unfortunately though, Troye’s weekend wasn’t a one-stop show of glory, as his attention was drawn towards a small international artist called Maxim Burmatov. The Russian singer shared some artwork to his social media account over the weekend and fans immediately noticed it’s similarity with another album we can think of… What do you think; pure coincidence or blatant plagiarism?
Troye’s original artwork for Blue Neighbourhood, as illustrated by Hsiao-Ron Cheng, features the same sunset backdrop behind a cartoon-rendered re-imagining of the singer. So when his attention is brought towards Maxim’s image, Troye decided to share it to his Twitter profile with the following message, “We you in court, sweaty!”. This, obviously, has caused his fans to overload Maxim’s Instagram with the same warning. The main message here? Don’t mess with Troye Sivan; this young man is literally untouchable at the moment.
