Little About Jacob Sartorius
Jacob was well-known and had a successful career even before the rumors started. In 2016, he put out a new song called “Sweatshirt.” It was on the Hot 100 charts in both the US and Canada.
Google said that he was the ninth most-searched musician of 2016. You might be happy to learn that Jacob Sartorius has more than 23.8 million TikTok followers.
Before Vine shut down in 2017, he had more than 8 million followers who watched his lip-syncing videos on the site.
He thought that social media helped him avoid being bullied. “Before Musical.ly, I wasn’t the most outgoing person,” he said. The app lets me waste time. It looks like no one but the camera is watching.”
Jacob Talked About Getting Bullied
Jacob also said, “I went to three different schools last year, and even for something as small as my ears, I was called names, pushed, and teased.”
In another interview, Jacob said, “Well, a lot of the bullying was because of things like this, which were more creative and less focused on sports. I think it got so bad that I had to leave school around seventh grade. Some kids tried to kill me every day.
Also, he said, “There’s a lot of hate, and that may have made me act in ways that aren’t really me. Sometimes, it forces you to try even harder to be yourself. So, I had to show them who I really am.
But I think I need to take a step back, take a deep breath, and know that I’ll just keep expressing myself and doing things my way. No one needs me to change anything I’m doing.”
Last but not least, Sartorius was dating Millie Bobby Brown in 2018.
