Teen Vogue’s Best Young Hollywood Celebrities of 2021

The indignity of COVID’s disparate impact, as well as the protests that erupted in June following the death of George Floyd, made times like when influencer Caroline Calloway told comedian and writer Ziwe Fumdoh about her Instagram Live show that she “deserves an ally cookie or something” all the more ugly. “There are no cookies in this game,” Ziwe replied, categorically.

Of course, that doesn’t mean gambling can’t be fun. TikTok, and social media in general, is where we’ve found joy and connection, like videos from ducks twerk, parodies of unnecessary Zoom meetings, and a re-enactment of God’s misunderstood directive to make dinosaurs meatier. The laughter, the dancing, the absurdity kept us calm, made us optimistic and helped us pass the time.

And let’s face it, it wasn’t an easy thing to do. With so many competing disasters vying for our attention, it was difficult to focus on one thing for more than a few minutes at a time. Our minds had to adapt. Our entertainment too. Music festivals have been canceled, shows have been banned, recordings have been delayed or reconfigured, and even our beloved awards shows have had to adapt to hold virtually. The one place where low production didn’t feel forced, where brevity and repetition fit together perfectly, was on social media.

This year’s Young Hollywood Creators are focusing on the people who kept us entertained. Disruptors in an industry in desperate need of change. People at the cutting edge of culture, making us think, laugh, dance and cry. A new generation that masters the ability to speak directly to its audience by moving seamlessly from one platform to another.

It takes extraordinary talent to shine through a year of pandemic, protests and presidential election. But these rising stars did just that. Meet Vogue teens‘s Young Hollywood Class of 2021.
