Often called “The New Rebecca Black,” YouTube’s newest viral video sensation Tay Allyn and her song “Mass Text” are getting a lot of attention with 1,000,000 views and counting! The undeniably catchy song and music video have got people asking the same things: “is this a joke?”, “Does she know this is about the worst video EVER?”, “She’s not serious is she?” How can a song about being left out of a mass text party invite get so many people talking? Tay might be on to something with her pop music that sounds like “Ke$ha without the sex, and Lady Gaga without the avant garde.” Delivering a sassy yet relatable attitude, Tay sings about the mundane things in everyday life.
With a little digging, some humbling information was found! 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 clearly is making a name for herself as planned. Question is, what else has she got? And will it be better than this? Or is she a one hit wonder that will disappear into obscurity. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
