- Miranda Sings
"Miranda Sings is a character created by comedian and singer Colleen Ballinger. Her videos have gone viral with over 24 million views on YouTube. The character of Miranda Sings is a satire of the increasingly common YouTube videos featuring mediocre or even bad, but egotistical, singers who film themselves singing as a form of self-promotion, and who ignore the realistic or cruel comments of "haters" commenting on their videos.
Miranda Sings is from Tacoma, Washington. She sings comically off-key, is self-absorbed and has a sassy attitude. She responds to viewers who take the videos seriously with the catchphrase "Haters back off!" telling her critics that they are "just jealous" and that "haters make me famous". The character includes facial tics, particularly unusually active eyebrows, a crooked smile and pronunciation quirks. In place of lyrics that she cannot remember, the character "scat" sings."
