"It's your girl, SUPERWOMAN" is no more. Canada's biggest YouTuber isn't just turning over a new leaf with her career, she just dropped a bombshell on her longtime fans that changes everything. Lilly Singh announced that she no longer identifies with her nickname "Superwoman" after nine years.
The world has known Toronto native Lilly Singh as Superwoman since she posted her first Youtube video nine years ago. We hadn't found out the reason behind her internet persona until last night when she posted an explanation on Instagram. Unfortunately, that explanation also came with resignation from her iconic moniker.
Underneath a posted photo of herself, Singh starts off by saying, "Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is @Lilly." After showing off her new Instagram handle she continues with the story of how and why she chose the original name Superwoman;
'When prompted to choose a username I instinctively typed Superwoman because it had been my MSN messenger screen name (shoutouts millennials). 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 finishes off the post by saying its been "heartwarming and empowering" to hear people call her Superwoman because of how hard she tried to live up to the name. But she now believes that "Lilly has become an even bigger hero than Superwoman" and it's time to "lay the cape to rest."
This announcement comes just after Singh started posting her day to day life prepping for her new NBC show Little Late With Lilly.
Luckily for Lilly, her fans have always been supportive and are continuing to support her on her new journey as just Lilly Singh. But they are questioning whether or not her Youtube channel will also be switched over from iiSuperwomanii.
We can't wait to see where this new journey takes our newest superhero, Lilly Singh!
