Makeup & YouTube Star Talia Castellano Passes Away at 13


Many were struck by the young girl's spirit, including Ellen DeGeneres, who got to meet the young girl when she had Talia as a guest on her show. Ellen then sent Talia to interview celebrities at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, where she got to meet Gwen Stefani and Demi Lovato.

Bruno Mars sent her a personalized message before her passing, stating: "“Your courage – inspiring. Your spirit – infectious. You – amazing! Just the way you are!!”

Her fans continue to post messages of support for family and friends and tributes to the bright star on her Facebook page. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this time.
