13 Things We Learned From Our Chat With YouTuber Tyler Oakley
Tyler Oakley has come a long way since he started making YouTube videos in his bedroom back in 2007. In the past few years, he’s interviewed One Direction (c/o Teen.com), collaborated with Darren Criss, met the president and tons more! So basically, Tyler is taking over the world!
All those who’ve watched Ty since the beginning known that in addition to being in love with Lady Gaga, he’s also ob-sessed with Taco Bell. Which is why his most recent collab with the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens to help find the next Teen Scholar makes total sense! TB + TO = EVERYTHING!

We LOVED your collab with Darren Criss! How did that come about?
"It was something that was in the works for a while. We had kinda been talking about doing something, because it’d be fun! And last year, my [AuGUEST] finale was One Direction, so I was like, what am I going to do that’s a moment on my channel? Then I was like, it has to be Darren. We talked on the phone, and we were supposed to figure out what we were doing for the video, but we ended up talking for 20 minutes about life. Then he came over to my apartment and we filmed."Photo: Instagram
