The Best "Diarrhe" Ever Written
If you’re a fan of Miranda Sings, reading My Diarrhe is a satisfying way to get to know her character better. This book reveals the personal life of this Youtube persona who’s famous for her obnoxious singing, egotistical personality, and red lipstick. Light spoilers ahead!
I was introduced to Miranda Sings years ago on MTV’s True Life series. Miranda Sings is the alter-ego of Colleen Ballinger. When she’s not singing awkwardly on purpose, Ballinger is a seasoned singer, actress, and comedian with a degree in vocal performance from Azusa Pacific University. Despite having an extensive music career, she is most well known for Miranda Sings.
This book is exactly what it sounds like: the “diarrhe” of Miranda Sings. It contains her experiences and thoughts. This book has her baby pictures, prayers, and detailed accounts of her relationships. I’ve never seen Haters Back Off, so I only really know her family members from this book. Based on the writings, it’s obvious her mom enabled her egocentrism.
Miranda’s “diarrhe” also tracks her ascension to fame. My Diarrhe shows some of her first headshots and her descriptions of her life before she was famous. If there’s anything she’s good at, it’s being determined to perform and accomplish her goal of becoming famous. In her mind, she’s always been famous. Being a celebrity is simply what she deserves for being so perfect.
This diarrhe is multi-media because it contains a lot of food crumbs and hair. It also contains some of her deepest secrets. The book has scannable links that go to her YouTube videos. It takes the book beyond the pages and back to the internet where Miranda came from.
My favorite part of this book was Miranda’s prayer journal. I like how she calls God “Daddy.” It was also interesting to see how she interacts with a higher power. It’s not too different from how she interacts with others: demanding, entitled, and wanting immediate results. In Miranda’s prayers, she demands God make her famous and complains whenever something doesn’t bring her instant fame. God’s mysterious ways don’t work for Miranda. She expects tangible results from the universe and I can’t help but admire that.
Miranda’s first kiss resonated with me. It’s clear Miranda loves herself and as an autosexual and autoromantic, I think that’s great. However, Miranda would probably call me a sinner.
This book details her relationships with others. Her first boyfriend had the same name as my current boyfriend. She also describes her encounters with other celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld and youtubers like Joey Graceffa. I never knew Lance Bass from ‘NSYNC was a “mirfanda” (fan of Miranda Sings) until I read this book.
Then again, that’s one of the things that makes this book great: the mirfandas. Miranda Sings features a lot of fan letters, hate comments, fan art, and fan gifts. People accuse her of being a bad influence while others praise her for making a positive difference in their lives. I love how she made hilarious criticisms of children’s drawings of her.
If you want to know more about Miranda Sings, go to her YouTube Channel and watch her videos. Buy her book from Amazon, Simon & Schuster, or Barnes & Noble. You won’t regret it.
