Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

Is anybody here a fan or one of the over 7 million followers on Youtube?

I saw here on Fallon, The Daily Show, and Today.

Why is she so popular?

Re: Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

I clicked to watch for 1 minute because I was like "There is still a Daily Show????", then clicked on another youtube video which I watched for 5 seconds and then just clicked "stop".

Who the fuck cares who she is? I just spent more time writing this post than I'll ever spend watching her shit.

Does she have a problem with her neck? Her head is tilted dangerously to the side in every one of those shots.

At first I saw thinking, I have no idea who this is and I'm on you tube quite often. Then I saw Superwoman....I know what she does. Not something I watch yet have ran into a couple of her videos.

I've heard of her from someone else I follow on YouTube, but I've never seen a complete video of hers. She could get with me if she put in a little effort, I guess. Cute, sassy, probably a little yappy.

Amazing who/what is considered famous these days. I couldn't finish the video as she's boring, but I admire her for taking a change in her life. She should toss the Psychology degree, however. Not sure if she's got it by now, but stay focused on entertainment.

Re: Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

Whenever these threads come up the responses make me think of this:



I don't know her but I'm also 39 and don't spend all day watching YouTube like my kids and their friends do. I'm not in her demo at all. Her net worth is over a million bucks so I'd say she's doing just fine.

Another vote for "never heard of her", and one for "don't care".

Youtube is so massive you can spend your whole life on that site and miss a lot of popular channels if you stick to certain communities like the gaming side of YT.

Re: Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

I've seen a few of her videos, and obviously they are better than the average Youtube crap and frankly better than a lot of other famous YT creators stuff. Granted I've probably only seen some of her best stuff, which makes it to the frontpage of reddit or something, but they were genuinely good skits.

Re: Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

I watched parts of a few videos. Her characters feel like broad stereotypical things I've seen done hundreds of times. The Rules of Racism one is the only one I watched that felt a bit clever, and there she wasn't trying so hard to be kooky or over the top. A lot of the videos she comes off as more hyper than actually funny for my tastes, but she's cute and likable so I get while others may dig her.

Funny, as I'd gladly climb into hers.

I'm with the majority here that had never heard of her. One of my side jobs involves working for two youtube "celebrities" and it amazes me the money these people are making off of this stuff.

Re: Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

"Youtube superstar" seems like a bit of a made up term. I prefer "future porn star".

It really is remarkable. All of these new media platforms have created hundreds of mini-celebrities who pull in big $$$ because of their millions of followers. I read an article recently about the "coolest" celebrities according to teens or something like that, and almost all of them were Youtube/Instagram/Vine stars I'd never even heard of. I personally think it's pretty cool. A lot of creative people out there getting their due.

Re: Lilly Singh Youtube Superstar

Yeah, I never thought of it that way. Of course, does this mean more whining from those Hollywood folks who can't get a fair shake.

When we say creative, and I guess now we're getting into what determines something as art so that'll vary from creative performer to the next. I think it's also to do with people being flat out bored with what's being offered, and are looking elsewhere (kind of like politics).
