Whatever you do, don’t call YouTuber Emma Chamberlain an “influencer”!

Speaking to Cosmopolitan in a cover-up interview for the mag’s February 2020 issue, the budding internet sensation opened up about her complicated relationship with the word “influencer, ” being that she is one herself and, at the same time, receives it “kind of disgusting.”

The 18 -year-old California native, who has a cool 8.5 million followers and counting on Instagram , explained 😛 TAGEND

” If someone is calling me an influencer, they’re saying that my job is to influence, and I don’t think that’s true. I prefer to entertain and be a friend. I don’t want to influence .”

Umm … if your entertainment and relationship has affected people, then you are, by definition, influencing them, gurl.

But let’s not get hung up on semantics!

The influ … ahem, * internet exhibitionist * went on to discuss the importance about not taking herself too seriously. She explained 😛 TAGEND

” I mean, I make fun of YouTubers and I am one. I think of it as, Why not play into it? If you can’t beat them, join them ?”

That’s the spirit!

Chamberlain has had quite the wide ride to internet superstardom: she uploaded her first video to her YouTube channel in 2017 and, in the years since, has garnered over 8 million subscribers and nearly 1 billion total views.

But, of course, she’s also had to deal with her personal fights, like mental health and body image issues.

She said of the toxic, body-obsessed culture of El Lay, where she generates content 😛 TAGEND

” It’s a massacre. Living in L.A ., if you’re at an unhealthy weight, that’s normal. That’s really, actually, truly a mindf ** k, for sure .”

That’s why she’s setting herself apart from other influencers by refusing to advertise weight-loss products or anything of the sort.

Chamberlain explained 😛 TAGEND

” Like, your grind is your grind, and I’m not going to get in the way of that. I just think that growing up on social media gave me eating issues as a kid. I literally have fought with that my whole life. Almost every person I’ve met has had some kind of an eating disorder. I entail, I’ve had … I don’t want to trigger anyone, but so many .”

The social starring also recalled her issues with body dysmorphia and the negative effects of face-editing apps like Facetune, explaining 😛 TAGEND

” I’ve been fully not at a healthy weight and I guessed I was obese multiple times. It’s awful. My whole family was telling me I appeared terrible. They were like,’ You look like you’re dying .’ I was like,’ I believe I look great.'”

Thankfully, the teen has since given up use “photo manipulation software ,” because her fans don’t” need to think I look like that. I look the style I seem .”

If you ask us, she looks pretty stunning on the encompas of Cosmo ( below )!

Would U consider her an influencer, Perezcious readers?
