Troye Sivan made a name for himself within the YouTube world a few years ago, but now the Australian singer catapulted into international fame thanks to the release of one of pop's most stellar albums of 2015, Blue Neighbourhood.

The 21-year-old spoke to V magazine about his immediate ascension into the spotlight. Despite his first Top 40 hit and a GLAAD Media Award under his belt, the singer remains humble. Troye's blissful personality radiates in the interview, stating:

“The fact that everything is happening the way it is. It sends me into giggles. Like, the fact that I woke up last week and was like, Oh, I just need to quickly fly across the country to do a photo shoot with Mario Testino and then fly back to play a show—I don’t know how else to process it but to laugh. Sometimes it feels like I’m in Zoolander. I went to the Billboard Awards, I was backstage, and Rihanna just casually walked by. I was like, What the fuck? Hilarious.”

The singer continues to stay true to himself, even when he's on stage. He revealed his upcoming tour plans to the magazine, saying he wants to “ask the crowd to bring a warm piece of clothing, which we can then donate to an LGBTQ homeless shelter in that city." This will create a safe space for a community that was shaken by the Orlando shooting earlier this summer.

Troye Sivan's Suburbia Tour kicks off on Oct. 16 in San Francisco. Watch below as fellow YouTube star Trevor Moran talks to Fuse about his love for Troye and the future of Internet influencers:
