For those who haven’t yet subscribed to TikTok’s debut podcast For You, let us fill you in quickly. Hosted by creator Brittany Broski (you know, Kombucha Girl), For You dives into all things TikTok with the platform’s biggest stars. Every week Broski sits down with a different influential creator who has turned the platform into a global community and cultural phenomenon. Joined by creators Frankie Jonas and Boman Martinez-Reid for episodes 1 and 2 respectively, Broski sat down with singer Loren Gray for episode 3 to chat about internet culture, having a voice and staying true to yourself.
At 18-years-old Gray is one of the most followed creators on TikTok with just over 51 million followers and almost three billion likes. Her rise to fame came at age 13 after she accidentally posted a video of herself lip-synching on Musical.ly and was featured within the app. Gray, who describes herself as quirky and weird, says it was an escape for her and began live streaming as a way to satisfy her “craving for human interaction.”
Check out a snippet of Broski and Gray’s conversation below and tune into new episodes every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. PST/8:30 p.m. EST on TikTok LIVE and Thursday mornings on Apple, Spotify, Google and all major podcast players.
