Joey Birlem Age, Early Life, Family, and Education Background

Joey was born Joseph Matthew Birlem in Los Angeles, California, under the Gemini Zodiac on 29 May 2002, which makes him 17 years old, American by nationality, and belonging to white ethnicity. He has two sisters named Bella and Sophia, and two brothers, Kashius and Scotty, and his mother is known as Jen Valdez. There is no information about his father, but apparently Joey grew up in a loving family, and had a lovely childhood. His parents were very keen on supporting his choice of career.

When Joey was younger, he dreamt of becoming an athlete, and drew inspiration from American athletes who would frequently win may Olympics medals, plus he loved watching Asian games each year. He learned how to skateboard and participated in various local skateboarding contests. At the same time, Joey started a Twitter account and named it illest_sk8 – his intention was to make people aware of his interests. However, Joey hasn’t disclosed details about his educational background.

Joey Birlem Professional Career

Joey has used the internet to become popular, as many other social media personalities. He began demonstrating his interest in music at a very young age – at the tender age of six, Joey had already started singing. However, he was only able to get recognition for his work when he began using the internet. Following in the footsteps of other young artists, Birlem also started promoting himself on the internet, rather than leaving all the work to music companies, especially since most of these companies demand large amounts of money and a cut from the artist’s pay. Long-term contracts can also prove stressful.

Back then, Tik Tok – formerly known as Musical.ly – was the ideal platform for upcoming singers. This is where Joey opened an account on the portal, and began uploading his music videos there. Within a very short time, Joey’s channel had gathered over a million followers, and from this success on Tik Tok, Joey decided to start posting his videos on other social media platforms.

On his Instagram account, Joey posted short versions of his music videos, which were also received very well. Within a very short time, Birlem had increased the number of his Instagram followers to more than 570,000, and around the same time was included among the leading stars on Tik Tok. In December 2015, Joey was named one of the most influential young singers, alongside Loren Beech, which proved to be a great achievement for Joey and his fans, and the media agreed.

Joey’s rise to stardom is also linked to his association with Tayler Holder, a teenage internet sensation. Tayler was born in Texas and began singing at a tender age, just like Joey. Later he migrated to California, where he joined Joey in collaboration, since the two had similar interests. In January 2016, the duo launched a YouTube channel and named it Joey and Tayler, which became an instant hit, especially among young fans; the two still share revenue generated from this collaborative channel.

Joey has earned the title of the hottest celebrity on the internet in the US, where people worship their celebrities. His sweet and alluring voice is one reason why he has become a household name, as his younger fans had already fallen in love with it. Another thing that sets him apart from his peers is how he mixes his singing with other artistic activities, including dancing which he is apparently very good at. He is also a very social person who loves posting photos of his everyday activities on his social media pages, which has helped to make him a very adorable figure as his fans feel that they are part of his life.

Joey Birlem Personal Life, Dating, and Girlfriend. Is He Gay?

Joey is not always eager to share his personal life with the rest of the world, and has tried his best to keep his love life away from prying eyes. However, this might have done him more harm than good, as there were rumors that he might be gay. Joey, however, refuted the rumors through a series of flirty tweets he exchanged with Maddie Ziegler, a famous actress and dancer.

After the rumors had died, it was speculated that Maddie was cheating on her Instagram star boyfriend, Jack Kelly, but in November 2017, any romance between Joey and Maddie came to an end when Maddie took to her Instagram account to apologize, stating that her account had been hacked, and her intention was to clear up the controversy that she was cheating on Jack with Joey.

After Joey’s controversial twitter exchanges, he has not opened up to his fans regarding his dating status. It is likely that Joey is currently single and dedicating his time to his career. His idea of quality time includes being with his family as well as working with Tayler, his YouTube partner, hopefully towards a bright future ahead.
