Since Taylor Swift released her new video clip for her single The Man this morning, fans are dissecting it slide by slide, discovering smart references, hidden meanings and stealth messages that the singer has placed in the clip.
They’ve also noticed a quick cameo from TikTok star Loren Gray, who only pops up for a few seconds, but Taylor’s sharp praise deserves her “excellent work” and “amazing” performance.
But while Loren has millions of social media followers – 39.6 million on TikTok alone – some viewers are just discovering the 17-year-old singer for the first time.
Look who it is! TikTok star Loren Gray makes a cameo in the new Taylor Swift video clip for The Man
Anyway, dude: the 17-year-old appears in the tennis scene, where she rolls her eyes while ‘The Man’ throws a tantrum
On the set: Loren is pictured next to Taylor, who got a makeover to look like a man for the video clip
Loren Gray Beech, professionally known as Loren Gray alone, can be seen in the tennis video music scene.
While ‘The Man’ throws a tantrum on the field during a tennis match for charity, she stands aside in her uniform and cap, hands behind her back, calm and unmoved by his theatrical style.
The camera turns to a close-up and Loren rolls her eyes.
At the end of the video, while sitting in the director’s chair, Taylor gives the male star some clues and asks him: “Can you try to be sexier?” Maybe nicer this time? ‘- displaying the type of feedback that women in the industry often receive.
But to Loren – who barely did anything – she says: ‘By the way, excellent work there, Loren. That was amazing. “
See! Loren shared a video today about the cameo with its 18.7 million Instagram followers
Wait patiently: she recorded the clip while making the video and saved it for the big release
Public freakout: it only appears for a few seconds and is ready during the tantrum
Cut! She also runs from the set at the end of the video and plumps herself in a chair
Reversal of the role: after she told The Man to be sexier, she adds: ‘By the way, excellent work there, Loren. That was amazing. “
Although the not so funny joke is that Loren has hardly earned the praise, it is not even close to her first time on camera.
Originally from Pottstown, Pennsylvania, Loren began to grow her huge following when she was in high school.
When she was in sixth grade in 2015, she joined the musical.ly video sharing app, which teenagers used to post lip-synchronizing videos – and quickly earned a following.
“I was not aware of the awareness of social media, it was more just making videos with my friends,” she said Interview magazine last year.
“Then girls started getting followers at my school, and when I looked at my account, I noticed that some of my videos were showing and that I had 30,000 followers. I went to my parents and I thought, “I don’t know what this means.” I just turned 13. ”
Social media: Loren is a popular TikTok star with 39.6 million followers in the app
Fame: the 17-year-old started in the app’s musical. Only when she was in sixth grade and built up a following from there (she was depicted at the fashion show of February 23 in Dolce & Gabbana)
Working on it! Her fame has gone offline; she is pictured here with the Go Red For Women Red Dress collection 2020 from the American Heart Association
Fans: her Instagram followers are Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Miss America 2020 Camille Schrier
Girls at school started teasing her, and it got so bad that she dropped out and moved to Los Angeles.
“It was not a difficult decision to leave school, it was really easy. School was pretty rough for me. People were not always the nicest in what I did, “she said in a YouTube video.
She continued to build her presence on social media, even when musical.ly became TikTok.
Now, in addition to its 39.6 million on TikTok followers, she also has 3.69 million YouTube subscribers, 18.7 million Instagram followers and a million Twitter followers.
Her Instagram followers are Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Miss America 2020 Camille Schrier.
Making music: she has been signed with Virgin Records and Capitol Records and has released several singles, including ‘My Story’, ‘Queen’, ‘Options’ and ‘Can’t Do It’ with rapper Saweetie
Popularity: she also has a number of nominations, including Choice Muser at the Teen Choice Awards 2016 and Muser of the Year at the Shorty Awards 2017
Cameo: she also appeared in 2017 in the music video of the English pop singer HRVY for ‘Personal’
Her success has also spilled offline. She has signed with Virgin Records and Capitol Records and has released several singles, including ‘My Story’, ‘Queen’, ‘Options’ and ‘Can’t Do It’ with rapper Saweetie.
She has also received a number of nominations, including Choice Muser at the Teen Choice Awards 2016, Muser of the Year at the Shorty Awards 2017 and the Social Star Award at the iHeart Radio Music Awards 2019.
Making a cameo in Taylor’s new video is certainly a big problem, but it’s not Loren’s first video clip either: she also appeared in The music video of the English pop singer HRVY for ‘Personal’ in 2017.
And earlier this year Online casinos mentioned the top earner of her TikTok in the TikTok Rich List and estimated that she can earn up to $ 175,000 per post.
