Local News's 'Full Diva' Kid Models for American Apparel

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

He danced his way into hearts everywhere and made local news at six tolerable. Now Brendan Jordan, teen diva, has parlayed his sass into an American Apparel modeling gig.

The 15-year-old has been a longtime fan of the LA basics company (it makes up most of his four-month-old Instagram account). But he didn't start tagging the company—or showing up on AA's account—until the last couple weeks, nor include actual evidence of his new modeling gig until yesterday. Work it, own it, throw shade at it. Diva on forever, young diva.
