YouTuber/Comedian/Musician/Author/Feminist/Soon-To-Be Leader Of The Free World Lilly Singh has been named top entertainment influencer by Forbes.
The Forbes Influencer lists celebrate people who have forged careers on platforms such as Instagram and YouTube, as well as up-and-coming platforms like Musical.ly.
“These social media power players have managed to monetize not just existing platforms like Instagram and YouTube, but in many cases emerging apps and sites like Musical.ly and Twitch,” said Forbes staff writer Clare O’Connor. “They’re landing production deals based on their prowess on Vine, the now-defunct video app that forced users to be super creative, with only seconds to make an impact. In some cases, these folks can command seven figures per sponsored campaign.”
28-year-old Lilly has a subscriber count of 11 million. On top of that, her book How To Be A Bawse: A Guide To Conquering Life hit the top of the New York Best-Seller list this year. And as if that weren’t enough, Lilly has just landed her first major film role. And you thought you were slaying the game because you managed to get up on time this morning?

As well as being a total Bawse, Lilly is helping other girls unleash their inner superwoman too.
Just this week, Lilly brought a squad of young women to the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards, for an epic and empowering red carpet entrance. At the event, she said “Lilly said, “I’m all about girl power, girl love, bringing girls together. And I think right now, more than ever in the world, sisterhood and strength means you come together and understand that feminism is about all shapes and sizes and colours. And sisters and girls? We’re going to take over the world!” Starting with Lilly herself, it would seem.
