Superwoman has developed.
YouTuber and soon-to-be late-night host Lilly Singh introduced in an Instagram publish Tuesday that she’ll not be often known as “Superwoman,” the moniker beneath which she rose to fame.
Singh, who’s used the nickname for nearly a decade, wrote in her publish that when she initially selected it for her YouTube account, she didn’t suppose a lot of it. It simply matched her MSN messenger display screen identify.
“Based on a song by Lil Mo and Fabulous, I used to call myself Superwoman growing up because like any kid I wanted so badly to deal with life’s obstacles like a hero,” she defined in her publish. “As I grew up, I held on to this belief that everyone could be their own superhero.”
Singh wrote that she hasn’t wavered from her philosophy. And although she understands that it’s been “heartwarming” to listen to followers tackle her by her superhero identify, she feels “even more empowered by the name Lilly.”
“Lilly has become an even bigger hero than Superwoman on this journey through my life. Lilly encompasses everything it took to get to where I am… and it’s a place I’m proud to be.”
Formally shedding her outdated identify, Singh concluded, “Today my biggest and best super powers lay within Lilly and thus Lilly I shall be.”
Over the previous few months, Singh has skilled a number of watershed moments. The comic got here out as bisexual in February, saying that she was “fully embracing” all her traits as superpowers. The following month, NBC introduced that Singh could be taking up NBC late-night host Carson Daly’s time slot, making her the one feminine late-night host at the moment on a significant broadcast community.
“An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show? Now that is a dream come true,” Singh mentioned in an announcement. “I’m thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild.”
