Wow…I am so honored to be a part of the #MYCALVINS #IRL campaign😭this right here is a dream come true!

Rickey rose to prominence for posting hilarious videos on Vine and later on, on Instagram, where he currently has 5.9M followers. We love Rickey’s sense of humor; his videos on Instagram always make our day, not to mention that he’s such a bundle of energy. During this quarantine period, Rickey says he naps 5x a day (which keeps him awake at night as a result) and he has also taken to posting quarantine workouts this COVID-19 crisis. And did we tell you already just how great of a dancer he is? Yep, he’s got some serious moves which you need to see, take a look at a couple of his videos below:
Rickey’s got such an amazing smile and did we mention already that he’s a dog lover? That’s right guys, he is an animal lover and he has a cute dog named Emmy.
Can’t get enough of Rickey? You can follow him on Instagram and YouTube where he talks about fashion, beauty trends, and the bullying he experienced for “being gay and being an extra-loud person” (In an interview with The New York Times, Rickey related how people would pick on him because of how he looked and how they would tell him: “You’re so annoying.” Read the interview in full here).
