Miranda Sings

Quoted by Colleen Ballinger about the creation of the character Miranda Sings: "About six years ago, YouTube wasn't what it is now and I thought it was a crazy fun ride for her ridiculous this kids on YouTube trying to get famous. So, I was making fun of YouTube and of some of these really horrible girls. I never thought that anyone would see Miranda videos and didn't want anyone to see it! [My parents] were not suportive of my YouTube videos. They were horrified when I put my first Miranda videos up. 'You know we are paying so much money for you to go to school and you're singing terribly and on purpose! This is going to ruin your career.' So, they were not supportive. I was making videos for my friends and they thought I was funny, so I continued to do it, like one video a month. There were people I didn't know leaving comments saying 'You suck', or whatever, and I was like, there are people watching my videos that would think, 'I don't know, this is so weird!' So, I would try to piss those people of. If they didn't like something I was doing, I would do it more, which got me more attention, because America loves to hate. If they see something to hate, they would be 'Hey, look at this stupid girl' and show it to someone else. I think that's kinda how it started, you know. I put a video called Free voice lesson that made Miranda famous."
