troyler q&a

Interviewer: A lot of people have asked me to ask you what is the go with Troyler and was it real and did it actually happen?

Tyler: Well Troye is one of my best friends from youtube. He is, if people don’t know him, he is a-he’s from South Africa but he lives in Perth. So he’s an Australian youtuber who I’ve been watching for years. We are good friends. He is an actor, a singer, a songwriter, a youtuber, a very talented person. Um, and I would say we are each other’s biggest cheerleaders. I think we support each other so much and to have somebody that you are that close with in a career where it’s very solitary-just you and a camera-is a good thing because sometimes it can kinda feel like it’s just you doing your thing all the time, and so to have people who kinda get what you’re going through a lot, is important and Troye is definitely one of those people for me. Um.. and so a lot of people interpret our friendship in a lot of ways, um, but he is somebody that is super important to me and I think will always be.

Interviewer: Okay, good, perfect. So, I’m sure I will get tweeted if I don’t ask you this, so there was no romantic connection?

*Long pause*

Tyler: Was that a question?

Interviewer: That was a question, yeah. There has been no romantic connection between you and Mr. Sivan?

Tyler: Mr. Sivan and I are not together. We are simply platonic friends. Uh, and a lot of people see the two of us and wish that we were. I think it’s one of those things where we appreciate each other just as much as people want us to, and they are more than welcome to interpret that however they want, but no, we are not together.
