 Lilly Singh is a Canadian YouTube personality, vlogger and actress who was listed on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list in 2017 and 2018. She has been one of the highest paying YouTubers since 2015.

Singh was born and raised in the Scarborough district of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Her parents, Malvindar Kaur and Sukvindar Singh, are Indian immigrants from Hoshiarpur, Punjab, India, and raised her as a Sikh.

Lilly's YouTube channel 'IISuperwomanII' has over 15 million subscribers and 3 billion views. She creates videos under this name where she mostly posts comedy sketches and vlogs aka style/makeup tutorials and travel diaries.

She has dipped her toe into the music industry a few times over the years. In July 2014, she released a song titled '#LEH'. Her other tracks include '#IVIVI' and 'Voices', which were released in 2015 and 2016 respectively. 

On 25 February 2019, Lilly announced she was bisexual on Twitter after checking out "Female", "Coloured" and "Bisexual" on a form online. This announcement came as part of a campaign called #LoveIsLove that encourages people to check out all kinds of relationships on forms online rather than just heterosexual ones.
