In an ever-growing digital age, YouTube has not only become a crucial part of almost all of our lives, but has redefined the Entertainment world as we have come to know it. Viewers are no longer chained to their TV’s, with the same outdated and boring programming, but now, have access to unique content ONLINE across the globe.
With one click of your mouse, whether you like to watch music videos, sketch comedy, webseries, or people talking randomly to their camera’s, there seems to be a YouTube channel for every kind of Entertainment guzzler.
Taryn Southern is a popular YouTuber, who has been creating original content on the site since 2007. I’ll leave the story of how she got her start for the interview, but one thing is certain, this lady seems to have the whole package: Brains, beauty, humour, and a sensational voice. Yep, don’t you just wanna kick her in the knee caps for all of that awesomeness? I know I sure do.
Anywho. This talented entertainer caught my attention with her sarcastic videos, and hilariously catchy songs and never fails to captivate my extremely short attention span. I was lucky enough to land an interview with her, and have compiled her answers in a nifty little video that you can watch below. Due to time constraints I wasn’t able to fit EVERY answer in here (don’t throw rocks at me), but– if you’re good little boys and girls, I will gladly post a more in depth version of my interview with Taryn at a later date. Cue hooray’s and hoorah’s.
So grab a glass of wine, a box of tissues, and a bottle of Jergens and let’s get on with it:
