Troye Sivan’s latest video “Youth” takes a jibe at Donald Trump’s now-famous line, “Make America Great Again.” Sivan, in the video, shows a cap with the line “Make America Gay Again,” clearly expressing his sexuality in a unique way. “Youth” is a breezy video clip that has care bears, blanket forts and alcohol. Young people are seen dancing and having fun in the video that looks like more of a dream sequence.



The tweet has already received more than 37,000 likes and 25,000 retweets.

The video takes viewers inside a foggy, neon-filled house party where piercings, alcohol and sex are all the rage. According to MTV News, the video “ultimately feels like a marriage of maturity and recklessness.” Troye sings about loving hard and not caring about the consequences.

Troye also shared a photo of him and his “princess” Amandla Stenberg. She is an actress who made a cameo at the party.



Sivan is simply overwhelmed and “blown away” by the response as the video received one million views in 24 hours.





The teen sensation may be in the middle of an international tour but that did not stop him from coming up with this dreamy video for his latest single “Youth.” Perth-based Sivan has become a social media star in recent years and most definitely one of Australia’s rapidly-rising stars. “Youth” is the third single from Sivan’s debut LP, “Blue Neighbourhood.”

The video has been artistically shot by Malia James, reports Rip It Up. Sivan cruises around the house party and even shows his fans some cool dance moves. Sivan has already performed the track on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." He is winning hearts all over US and Europe with his amazing music sense and catchy tunes of electropop.

Sivan played a young Hugh Jackman in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
