Pop recording artist Tay Allyn’s latest video “Mass Text,” a catchy song and equally attention grabbing video about being left out of a mass text party invite, instantly went viral on YouTube within a week of being posted. Now, it’s already reached over 1,000,000 views! The big questions on everyone’s mind remain: “is this a joke?”, “Does she know this is about the worst video EVER?” “Is she channeling Rebecca Black?”, “She’s not serious, is she?” A quick look at the comments posted on Tay’s video and it’s clear that many YouTube users love to hate on Tay and her knack for creating pop music that’s like “Ke$ha without the sex, and Lady Gaga without the avant garde.” Tay delivers a sassy yet relatable attitude while singing about the mundane things in everyday life.
Tay was on CNN’s Showbiz Tonight less than one week after posting the video. Everyone on Showbiz Tonight wanted to find out where this girl came from and tried to answer all the questions and get to the bottom of it! Tay was also recently featured on Tim Conway Jr.’s Podcast and she’s been “critiqued” by The Soup’s Joel McHale. See what the comedian had to say about Tay here. Tay was also featured on LiveStarringYou.com.
Here’s what we’ve learned from her recent interviews…Growing up Tay was not the most popular girl – she was called worse than “chubby” and wore an eye patch for medical purposes from the time she was 4 until well into middle school. However, after overcoming the adversity and the bullying and gaining confidence in herself as she journeyed through graduating the University of Southern California and addressing the commencement audience of over 5,000, she has completely changed her image and (late) blossomed to become a beautiful confident woman. Afraid of being bullied now? Not this girl! Bring it on!
Like it or hate it, she’s clearly is making a name for herself. Question is, what else has she got? And will it be something more viable than this? Or is she a one hit wonder that will disappear into obscurity. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
