Conan Gray Bio
Conan Gray is an American YouTuber and Vlogger, born on December 5, 1998, and although his official YouTube channel was not launched until 2013, he had already started making videos of himself at the age of 9. However, his mother did not allow him to show his face on camera until he was 11 years old.
In his last year of middle school, it turned out that he made videos as a sideline. To promote him, one of the teachers projected his video for everyone to see. In the early days of Vlogging, he only earned about $100 a month. Well, he didn’t have many followers, but he agreed that he was just hoping that his videos would connect with someone.
Being a rising star and a freshman was one of the biggest challenges Conan Gray had to face. It was very difficult to constantly update his YouTube and meet with the classes. With the help of his managers, he was able to develop a strategy that helped him combine the two tasks efficiently.
In 2013 Conan Gray launched his official YouTube channel as “ConanXCanon”. In the meantime, however, he had changed it to his full name Conan Gray. Although he posts more music videos, he also posts videos on a variety of topics. In one of the videos, he talked about things like his clothes, favorite music and movies, home visits, and even college issues.
As part of his ingenuity and creativity, he made a video of a song that he wrote and performed. These “songs”, his original piece, received a lot of attention on YouTube. His cover songs include Grow, Idle Town, Lovesick Boys, The Other Side, Treehouse, and many other videos.
When he was growing up, he was mocked because he was not man enough. This inspired him to make a video called “I’m a Girly Boy and I Don’t Care”. The sarcasm and authenticity of the video made it popular as it spread within a short time. He didn’t defend his girlish nature but accepted that he never really felt like a man enough, and felt comfortable with this perception of himself by people. He even continues to show female tendencies on some of his videos – things like painting his nails.
Conan Gray expresses his thoughts about becoming famous on YouTube and believes that a lot has changed since the days when he started posting videos. He is an advocate of originality and creativity on YouTube. He has captured this thought in his song “YouTube is Changing”.
As interesting and beautiful as the videos of Conan Gray are, you cannot say the same about his family. He was born in San Diego, California, the son of a middle-class family with roots in Japan. The family had to move to Hiroshima to be with their sick grandfather. Unfortunately, the grandfather died and they had to return to California.
Things did not go well for Conan Gray’s parents as their marriage broke up when Conan was only three years old. Conan had a sister (whose names are not known) who was born by his parents before their divorce.
Other Endeavors – Outside YouTube
With over 1.9 million subscribers in 2018 and over 9 million views of his videos, he has made quite a fortune with YouTube. But he has another source of income. He has an online store where he sells personally branded products. Products include t-shirts, hoodies, music CDs, face caps, winter hats, and even canned food. All of these are some of the items in his personal online retail store.
