The 29-year-old YouTube phenomenon – real name Colleen Ballinger – opened up about her success. Check it:
On her YouTube reputation: “It’s been hard being on the internet and not being respected by people in Hollywood. A lot of people think most YouTubers are just untalented kids who film themselves for four minutes, and that’s all they do for their week. I really hope this opens doors for other YouTubers.”
Jerry Seinfeld on Miranda Sings: “When I met Colleen the day before we shot the episode, I could tell immediately that she can be funny to any audience on any screen. And the audience numbers we saw for that episode tell me that she can easily take her audience from one digital sphere to another.”
Netflix on Haters Back Off: “We believe in our gut, Miranda, as popular as she is, will help us make noise. This isn’t just taking her short-form [content] and stretching it into 22 minutes. It’s a bizarre family comedy, and a commentary on society today and our fascination with fame.”
