Update: A previous version of this article stated that Rudy is going on tour with Justin. That has not yet been confirmed.
Rudy Mancuso is known for his hilarious Vines and YouTube videos, but now he is preparing to take over the world with his musical talents — and he might be doing so with the help of no other than Justin Bieber himself.
The "Sorry" singer and the web star have been friends for quite some time, and Rudy exclusively revealed to J-14 that they may be traveling to South America for the new leg of the Purpose World Tour.
"Come 2017, I'll be pretty aggressive with music. I'm actually going to be opening for my friend Justin Bieber during the South American leg [of] his tour. So all that stuff will be epic," he said while talking to us about his "The Keys of Christmas" special on YouTube Red.
So exciting! So does this mean that this shift will take him away from what his fans know and love him for? Or will he still be acting and making funny videos?
"It's kind of a combination of both of those things. Obviously, I'm interested in creating content on the internet, on YouTube specifically. For me, I see all that as a platform for being a creative, and almost a launching platform for all the other things I want to pursue. I'm developing a television show right now, which I can't talk to much more about, but in addition to that, I'm discussing a YouTube Red original series as well."
Wow. Looks like 2k17 is a year of opportunity for Rudy and we cannot wait to see him touring South America alongside his mega talented friend.
Can you believe Rudy may be opening for JB? Do you wish you could go see them? Tell us in the comments.
