As Lilly Singh NBC Show Inches Closer, Superwoman Has Been Laid to Rest
A few days ago Lilly Singh announced on her Instagram that she’s letting go of the Superwoman title. We know, it comes as a shock because it was such a major part of her identity. People are curious to know whether she is doing this now that she has an NBC late-night show coming out. We’ve got answers to all your questions.
Why Lilly Singh Let Go of Superwoman?
We got to know of Lilly Singh as the YouTuber Superwoman. While Superwoman preached kindness and positivity, she also kept it real. For her fans, her name was heroic and inspirational. That’s why many are sad to see it go.
But Lilly Singh’s reasons for laying the title to rest may help you cope. They’re actually good reasons!
In a post on her Instagram, the YouTuber turned talk show host, wrote,
Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is @Lilly. •••••••
Nine years ago I decided to make a YouTube channel and thought nothing of it. I didn’t think it would alter my life path, turn into a career and to be honest I didn’t even think I’d upload more than five videos. 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. As I grew up, I held on to this belief that everyone could be their own superhero. Until this day I truly believe that we have all the tools we need to be our own saving grace. It’s been heartwarming and empowering to hear people address me as Superwoman, a name I worked so hard to live up to.
She Continues To Write,
But today as I type this, as the person I’ve grown into, I feel 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. And so at this time, it feels right to give thanks to the moniker Superwoman and to lay the cape to rest. Today my biggest and best super powers lay within Lilly and thus Lilly I shall be. Aka new handle is @Lilly. Wooop! Woop! Holla atcha girlllll 💃🏽💪🏽❤️
Everything We Know About Lilly’s New Show
The YouTuber has gone on to achieve so much and one of her achievements is getting her own talk show. Lilly will be joining Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers by becoming another talk show host on an NBC late-night show. Her new show is called A Little Late With Lilly Singh and it premieres on September 16.
Lilly Singh may no longer be called Superwoman but she’s still as much a superwoman as she was before. We agree with her decision though a little reluctantly. We still love and support her though.
