Colleen Ballinger’s career as “Miranda Sings”
Originally, the idea of Ballinger’s character Miranda Sings was created after she witnessed countless untalented singers on YouTube looking for fame. Her hysterical off-key cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” went viral in June 2010 and accumulated over 4.5 million views.
Ballinger described her process of getting into character. She explained: “The process of getting into Miranda mode is simply making sure I’m as gross as possible. I make sure I’m wearing funky clothes and a lot of lipstick, and I’m good to go.”
Her character, Miranda Sings, continued to rack in the views throughout the years. Her Miranda Sings YouTube account has garnered 2.2 billion views. In 2016, Ballinger became an executive producer for her Netflix show Haters Back Off. The show follows her character Miranda Sings who, despite her lack of talent, rises in popularity and fame.
When discussing the series Ballinger stated: “I think for me, the best comedy comes from when something feels real and genuine, so even though Miranda is this wacky character, there is a real vulnerability to her that we finally get to show in ‘Haters Back Off,’ and I think that’s what makes this comedy rich and more fulfilling, at least for me.”
It was while working on this series that Colleen Ballinger met her husband Erik Stocklin. In the Netflix show Stocklin plays Miranda’s love interest and apparently the love continued off screen! The couple has been going strong ever since then!
Ballinger discussing motherhood
Colleen Ballinger and her husband have been sharing every step of not only her recent pregnancy but also raising their son Flynn. Ballinger opened up about the experience of becoming a mother. Ballinger said, “I have a whole new perspective on pregnancy and motherhood now that I’m experiencing it. Just because it’s so hard and so confusing and so exciting.”
“Women are so amazing that their bodies can do this and that they’re strong enough to do this. I can’t believe almost every woman goes through this, because it’s so hard,” she continued. The YouTuber has found an appreciation for mothers around the world!
We’re so excited to watch as Colleen Ballinger and her husband show their journey with their upcoming twins! The famous YouTuber once said, “I’m very open with my life, and I don’t regret it because it’s what got me here.” We look forward to her vlogs which show her sweet family life!
