It’s the end of an era. Colleen Ballinger, AKA the one and only Miranda Sings, took to her YouTube channel to officially say goodbye to her touring life. See, ever since the 31-year-old singer and actress created the character a decade ago, she’s been out on tour performing live as Miranda. But now that Colleen is pregnant with her first baby, she’s decided it’s time to hang up her lipstick and say goodbye her life on the road. At least for a while.
“I’ve been performing live and touring for 10 years as Miranda Sings and a few weeks ago, I had my final performance as Miranda on stage,” Colleen said in a YouTube video. “Probably not going to be my final performance for the rest of my life because performing is what I love most. So after this guy pops out and I get adjusted, I might try to go on tour again, but it’s never going to quite be the same.”
Colleen went on to explain that she’s forever grateful to her many fans for all they’ve done for her and if it wasn’t for them loving Miranda so much and coming to see these shows, she never would’ve been able to live out her dreams, something she’s oh so excited to tell her son all about once he arrives.
“Ever since I created Miranda, I’ve been doing live shows. It’s kind of all I’ve ever known. It’s only been a few weeks and I already miss being on stage, so this is challenging,” she said. “Anytime I thought about how this might be the last time I’m on stage, I teared up, but the whole time I was up there, I was thinking about every performance I’ve ever done, what I’ve gone through to get here, all of you, and meeting you all over the world.”
But don’t worry — just because she’s not touring anymore doesn’t mean Colleen is going anywhere. She has a lipstick line out, books in the works, a Netflix special coming soon, and yes, more YouTube videos.
“I’m still here, I’m still Miranda! I’m still posting YouTube videos, you’re still going to see me all the time. All I want to say is thank you, you’ve completely made my dreams come true,” she said.
