Stepping out with a Youtube star can be a scary thing. I had the chance to venture out with Youtube sensation Joseph Vincent and experience first-hand what life can be like when over 95,000 people subscribe to your Youtube channel.
We were checking out the Bruno Mars concert at The Grove in Los Angeles, CA. Mars killed it onstage, leaving the crowd pumped and excited from the free show.
Once the concert was over, a fan leaked it out that Joseph Vincent was in the audience. One “can I take a picture with you” led to another and soon, there was a swarm over the 21-years old singer. Vincent himself was surprised with all the brou-ha-ha. “Uh, Bruno Mars went that way, I think,” he pointed out. But nope, these girls wanted to take a picture with Joseph Vincent, not Bruno Mars.
The recognition didn’t end. Cameras were flashing everywhere and Vincent was getting stopped left and right. It got so bad that mall security had to escort us inside the AMC movie theater just so the crowd would dissipate.
How does Vincent handle all the attention?
“Oh, it’s fun. I love it. And none of the people are too aggressive so it’s cool. But yea, they’re really cute and nervous. They say, “I’ve seen you on Youtube, can I take a picture with you?” At first, I didn’t know how to act but now I’m more used to it.”
Judging from the singer’s busy schedule, from his B Here tour through some of America’s finest colleges to an upcoming album in the works, it looks like the fan recognition in public places is just going to get bigger.
No matter what, the singer will still take time out to take pictures with his good friends though. (Here with his college buddies.)
