Bella Poarch was born on February 8, 1997 in the Philippines. She lived with her family in the Philippines while growing up and she later moved with her family to Hawaii. When she came of age, she enlisted in the U.S. Navy.
Bella’s real name has come under question since she became popular, since a photo of her in her U.S. Navy uniform has her last name as Taylor.
It suggests Bella Poarch may not be her real name. Her birth date has also come under question, as some sites have her birth date as a different date.
As of November 2020, Bella Poarch has more than 40.6 million followers on TikTok, 136,000 followers on Twitter, 176,000 subscribers on YouTube, and 7.5 million followers on Instagram.
Bella joined TikTok in April 2020 and quickly skyrocketed to fame; in less than eight months, she had more than 40 million followers on TikTok. She posted several videos, but her big hit was a video to the viral song M to the B by Millie B. The zoomed-in video of her lip-syncing to that tune and rhythmically bouncing went viral and became one of TikTok’s most liked videos of all time.
That video also sparked some backlash, with many people asking why it was so well-liked and so popular for the minimal amount of effort put in.
Bella’s TikTok account focuses on cuteness, lip-sync videos, dance videos and some gaming content – her first-ever TikTok video is about gaming.
Following her TikTok success, she launched a YouTube channel and Twitter page in the months after she joined TikTok.
Bella has been embroiled in a number of controversies since becoming famous in 2020. The star has a rising sun flag tattoo on her body which has caused quite a stir. For many South Koreans, her specific tattoo was a sign of Japanese imperialism. Because of the history associated with the flag, it remains controversial to this day.
The social media star tweeted an apology to fans, and said on Sept. 5 that she didn’t know the history of the symbol and immediately had it covered and scheduled for removal when she found out what it meant. In October, she said the tattoo had been covered and she would share photos when it healed.
Bella was also accused of using a racist nickname on social media when referring to one of her friends. She referred to one of her Black friends as “Harambe,” which is the name of a gorilla who was killed in 2016 after a young boy climbed into his enclosure. Monkeys and gorillas have a history of being used in racist names. In response, Bella said y’all really trying to cancel me for calling my friend Harambe! That was his nickname back when we were stationed in Japan.
Bella has had a mysterious personal life. In September, the star appeared on rapper Tyga’s TikTok lip-syncing and dancing. It sparked rumors that Tyga and Bella were dating, but there is no evidence they were dating.
TIkTok’s latest overnight sensation is Bella Poarch, a social media influencer known for her subtle lip-syncing videos — and a number of controversies.
Though she only joined the app in April 2020, she has been averaging nearly 1 million new followers every day, according to YouTuber Def Noodles, who tracks influencer trends. As of press time, she has 39 million followers.
Bella Poarch has the most-liked video on TikTok.
On August 17, Poarch shared a simple video of herself lip-syncing to M to the B by MIllie B, then bobbing her head and crossing her eyes to the beat. Less than a month later, it became the most-liked video on TikTok with a whopping 36.5 million likes and 145.3 million views.
She faced backlash after the post caught fire. The post has more than 1 million comments, and it appears the vast majority of posts repeat the same sentiment Why does this have so many likes?
In her first-ever TikTok video, which she posted April 10, she pretends to play a video game as the audio of someone issuing a fiery insult plays over the footage. This post, like so many of her others, has been called low effort.
Even as she’s faced criticism for being famous for no reason, Poarch has continued to gain popularity. After her massive video went viral, she shifted her content strategy to focus almost entirely on lip-syncing videos filmed with a face-tracking filter.
