Khalid Explains How His Crying Face Became a Meme: Watch

As part of our Teen Takeover Week, Fuse is looking back on our interviews with some of our favorite artists during their teenage years. Today is all about Khalid, who also made our list of the biggest teen musicians of the year. The 19-year-old recently stopped by our offices to break down the current meme culture that he and his friends can't get enough of.

So what are the "Location" singer's favorite memes? The Kermit ones of course, where the beloved Muppet is sipping tea and meekly looking at his evil hoodie-rocking twin. Khalid even became a meme himself once! "Someone took a picture of me crying and they posted it. They were like, 'when she doesn't send you her location,'" he recalls. Watch the hilarious story above.
