Miranda Sings is the stage name of musician and comedian Colleen Ballinger. One of the earliest YouTube stars, Colleen Ballinger began posting videos in 2008 under the name and fictional persona of Miranda Sings, a self-absorbed, untalented musician obsessed with achieving fame on YouTube. Since then, Ballinger has posted over 500 videos in character and earned a YouTube following of over 7 million subscribers. Ballinger adapted the character of Miranda Sings to a television format on Netflix with a series called Haters Back Off as well as a live Netflix special based on her touring performance. She has also maintained a busy tour schedule, appearing as Miranda Sings at stops across the United States, Europe, Canada and Australia.
On the Road to Stardom
Despite a modest following for the first few years of its YouTube presence, Miranda Sings picked up steam and began to break through in March 2013, thanks in part to new collaborations with popular musical artists. This new online success boosted Ballinger's live career, allowing her to book appearances at larger venues. In 2015, her New York Times bestselling book, Selp-Helf, hit shelves. Miranda Sings was "borned" in 2008 when musician, comedian and actress Colleen Ballinger created the persona in a series of YouTube videos. Vain, narcissistic and completely untalented, Miranda Sings is a satire of YouTube performers with no talent and grandiose visions of fame and fortune through posting on the platform. Miranda is generally poorly dressed, with sloppy bright red lipstick and a tone-deaf singing voice. Videos cover a range of topics, including Miranda's attempts to break into comedy, acting, music, magic, athletics, dance and many, many more, as well as the reading of hate mail or collaborations with other YouTubers or pop celebrities. Miranda's videos became massively popular and spawned a number of appearances of the character in other media.
