Troye to BYou: "I wanted to release an album when I was a toddler."

► His sound: soft pop, with electronic elements.

► His story: Troye Sivan uploaded the first video to YouTube eight years ago. It all started with a few songs in front of the webcam. A lot has happened since then.

A big step was coming out of millions on YouTube.

Troye: "It showed me that I can help others and give back what the internet gave me when I needed it."

BYou meets the YouTube star from Down Under. And: Troye reveals why he would date a fan!


BYou: It's your first time in Germany, you said at your concert. How do you find it here?

Troye Sivan: “It's great. I haven't seen much of Berlin, but it's very beautiful. The city has an interesting history, I learn a lot. "

What was the best you saw

Troye: “We went to Museum Island, went around and visited the museums. I just like walking around here. It's cold and I was wearing a coat that I don't wear in Australia. "

You travel the world a lot. If you could choose, where would you stay for the rest of your life?

Troye: “Oh, what if I couldn't travel anymore and had to stay in one place? I would probably choose Australia, Sydney. I love australia. It's my home, warm, the weather and the people are great. "

You made it from a YouTuber to a professional musician. Do you think the internet makes it easier to get attention for your talents these days?

Troye: “Definitely yes. I think it's an exciting time to be a musician. You can come from the farthest corner of the world, anywhere from Perth in Australia. You don't have to live in L.A. anymore to realize yourself. You simply upload a song to SoundCloud or Tumblr or YouTube and you will be found. If not from a record company, then from people. "

Now your first album is out. How does that feel?

Troye: “I'm so excited. I wanted to release an album when I was a toddler. I'm in Berlin, played a concert, my album is coming out soon - if I could take a picture now and show it to myself three years ago, I would be pretty excited.

Why did you call it "Blue Neighborhood"?

Troye: “This is a place that I made up in my head, inspired by where I come from in Australia. It's like a home, cozy, with a lot of love and warmth. But at the same time you're curious about what's out there and want to get to know the world. "

How did you find your own style of music? Who inspires you

Troye: “I like Lorde, Frank Ocean and Amy Winehouse. Ciara is pretty stunning too. I listen to music regularly and try to find new sounds. It all influenced me in some way. "

You also produced a song with Zedd from Germany. Have you had the chance to get to know him personally in the meantime?

Troye: “We shared a song, but never met. I have to do that sometime. We just missed each other in Las Vegas. "

Which star would you like to do a song with?

Troye: “I say that all the time, but I would like to work with Lorde. I think if I keep telling this in interviews, she'll hear it at some point and answer me. "

His coming out in front of millions of viewers

You came out on YouTube two years ago. What has changed since then?

Troye: “I'm a much happier person. And I've made an indescribable bond with a lot of my fans who have been through similar things. It feels like it opened those doors completely and showed me that I can help others and give back something that the internet gave me when I needed it. "

Are you in a relationship right now?

Troye: “I don't know. Are you in a relationship?"


Troye: “No? Okay cool. Yes, I don't know. "

Would you date a fan

Troye: “Would I date a fan? Yes, I believe that the person you meet should also be a fan of your work. Otherwise she wouldn't understand what you are doing. So yes I would. "

And another YouTuber?

Troye: "Yes, I think so."

Do you read the messages and tweets that fans send you or write about you?

Troye: “Yes, I do. Always."

What's the craziest tweet you've gotten?

“The craziest tweet I've got is probably Tailor Swift's. She wrote that she liked my music and that was my highlight of the year. "

What did your parents think when you started YouTube?

Troye: "In the beginning they didn't understand, but now they understand better than I do."

Do you want to continue your acting career someday?

Troye: "It's not my top priority at the moment, but if I was offered the right role between two albums, I think I'd like to act again."

If you had one wish, what would it be?

Troye: "I would probably - and this is such a boring answer - wish for good health for my entire family and forever."
