YouTuber Emma Chamberlain covers " Cosmopolitan"




- Chamberlain on hating the word influencer. Chamberlain" I think the word " influencer" is kind of disgusting. Let's use me as an example: If someone is calling me an influencer, they're saying 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".

- On how she got her start on YouTube. Chamberlain" It was summertime, I didn't want to do my summer reading. I had to tap into other new territories in my brain because I was bored. So it was like ,everyday, I was making videos" .

On the moving to L.A. and body issues: Chamberlain" It's a bloodbath. Living in L.A., if you're at an unhealthy weight, that's normal. That's really,really,really a mindf**k for sure".


- On refusing to promote weight loss products.* potential trigger warning.
Chamberlain" Like your grind is your grind, and I'm not going to get in the way of that. I just think growing up on social media gave me eating issues as a kid. I literally have struggled with that my whole life. Almost every person I've met has had some form of an eating disorder. I mean, I've had.. I don't want to trigger anyone, but so many".

- On why she vows never to use facetune or photo manipulation software: Chamberlain I've been fully not at a healthy weight and thought I was obese multiple times. It's awful, my whole family was telling me I looked terrible. They were like, " You look like you're dying" I was like , ' I think I look great". I refuse to do Facetune because nobody needs to think I look like that. I look the way I look".

- On not taking herself to seriously: Chamberlain" It's like, I have one life. I'm not going to waste my time being all, you know" Take me seriously as a YouTuber!" I don't care, you know what I mean? It's like,watch my videos- if you hate it, go watch the news or something, I don't know. Like have fun, but I don't care".
