Nothing is stopping Lilly Singh at the moment. She is currently travelling the world doing killer interviews with A-List talk shows hosts in preparation for her new documentary, A Trip To Unicorn Island, coming to YouTube Red on February 10th. In the space of 2 weeks, Miss Superwoman has been on The Daily Show, The Tonight Show and Today – and she’s showing no signs of slowing down yet.
During her time on The Daily Show, Lilly shares playful banter with host Trevor Noah before getting down to the truly hard hitting facts about her depression and why she started YouTube in the first place,
“It was my last year of University and I was kinda just going through the motions of life. I was getting my psychology degree. And I was just kinda following my sisters footsteps blindly, not really doing anything that made me happy. I discovered YouTube, uploaded my first video and THAT made me happy.”
Trevor goes on to point out his total bewilderment that someone with precisely 7,700,092 million subscribers would even “bother with this [show]”, but Lilly merely bats it off as if she’s just your regular girl next door. By the way, since the show has aired, the IISuperwomanII channel has gained 118,883 more subscribers – so make sure you send Trevor a thank you card, Lilly!
Just a day later, during Lilly’s appearance on the Today show, true fan dedication can be seen in the background as hosts state that “only a superwoman could get A LOT of fans outside dressed up like unicorns”. They then go on to nail absolutely every single reason about why we love Lilly Singh and why she is one of the most influential YouTubers on the planet right now,
“You have such an empowering message. A lot of people get famous because they are risky or they do things that aren’t so cool but you chose this positive upbeat message.”
All of this promotional touring will continue right up until A Trip To Unicorn Island’s premiere later this month. So whilst we wish her all the luck in the world, but we can’t stop asking ourselves – in a world where YouTubers are racking up subscribers in their millions, when will we see the tables turn and have people come to YouTube to start promoting TV shows?
