Popular YouTuber Gabbie Hanna speaks out about how difficult it is to find genuine relationships due to her fame.

First of all, for those who don't know, who is Gabbie?

Gabbie is a very popular YouTuber with over 6.5 million subscribers, an impressive 3.8 million Instagram followers and 2.75 million followers on Twitter.

She makes a lot of comedic and entertaining YouTube videos, but she's also known to open up to her audience about a lot of pretty serious things in her videos. The list includes her struggles with body dysmorphia, eating disorders and depression.

...But the one thing she doesn't make public is her relationships.

In her recent interview on the Zach Sang Show, Gabbie explains that she's an emotional person, and if she makes her relationships public and they ultimately break up, well, the last thing she wants is fans asking her if they'd broken up.

Makes sense, right?

“If I’m somebody showing my boyfriend all the time and posting pictures and stuff and all of a sudden the pictures stop / The last thing I want to deal with is comments asking me about it.”

Sadly though, she also adds in that it's hard to find someone who's genuine and it's actually hard to know whether someone likes her for her or for her fame and followers.

Oh dear. Uh, is there a sign, though?

Yes. According to Gabbie, there's a pretty good warning sign.


Basically, the sign Gabbie looks for is whether that person has ever shown any spark of interest in ever entering the entertainment industry.

“I know that if they stick around knowing I’m not going to tag (them), then that’s what makes it real.”

Pretty sound advice. I can see most of us nodding our heads right now.

And then Zach brings up the fact that videos about relationships always get a lot of views, to which Gabbie agrees and says that because she doesn't use her relationships to get views, it shows how authentic she is on the internet.

Hm. She could be referring to how some celebrities are known for using their relationship status as a way to gain publicity. Has anyone heard of YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Monageu's sudden engagement announcement? I.e., two popular and controversial YouTubers?

A lot of fans are actually questioning its authenticity, and some even believe that they won't follow through. Most are saying it's just for the sake of publicity.

“I don’t do stuff to social climb. If I wanted to be so much bigger, I could. I could hang out with people that could get me there. I could have these relationships online and do the tags.”

Gabbie even calls out other unnamed YouTubers.

“I hate to say it, but a lot of people on YouTube aren’t grounded anymore.
“I’m not really saying it as an insult because they’re kind of just living in a different world where it's okay because they’ve just kind of adapted to that, but for me I just need to have very real relationships that I’m secure in, and I know that they’re here for the right reasons and it's not this fake images thing.”

On the brighter side, at least Gabbie has a lot of friends outside of YouTube that she can count on, right?

Not to mention she's been meeting success since releasing her new EP '2WayMirror', and recently, she appears to be teasing a new music album that will be debuting soon!

Who's ready for that?
