GloZell has more than 4.5 million YouTube subscribers, 1.4 million followers on Instagram, and just under 1 million on Facebook. Holy. Crap. That’s amazing! For those not in the know, GloZell has been creating funny characters and videos on her official YouTube Channel since 2008. They are quirky, outrageous, silly, and hilarious creations that can come only from the mind of GloZell. She’s even done some incredibly high profile interviews with celebrities and President Obama. Her following is so popular she is now a star in her own right.
She also currently voices “Grandma Rosiepuff” in the movie Trolls. She tells me what it was like branching out her brand and working with Justin Timberlake on a huge Dreamworks film.
During our interview she was just as funny and open as you’ve seen her be in her videos. She tells me why she created her own YouTube channel, how she deals with haters, and how something as simple as green lipstick changed her life. I wanted to know if she ever feels any shade from actors because, let’s be honest, we can be a bit puritanical when it comes to our “art”. Many actors poo-poo the idea of social media as a tool to help elevate their acting and to that I say, please look at GloZell’s popularity then tell me how that short film is opening doors for you.
Her most recent adventure has been documenting her journey into motherhood in a docuseries called “Glo All In” on Awestruck-a digital lifestyle entertainment brand for millennial moms. This woman bravely exposes her most intimate moments of dealing with infertility and shares it with millions of people. I can’t even imagine what that would be like. I think I’m brave when I tweet about getting a new bra!
