Who’s Trysha Paytas?
Trisha Paytas is an American vlogger, singer, reality TV personality and former escort. Considered one of the pioneers of YouTube, she created her first channel in 2007, dedicated to her obsession with movie director Quentin Tarantino. Her channel quickly diversified into vlogs and music videos, although in recent years she has been best known for her mukbang videos where she devours all kinds of food in large quantities.
She now has over 5 million subscribers and has accumulated over 900 billion views, not least because of numerous controversies. She regularly faces public criticism as she exposes her relationship problems with YouTuber Jason Nash, mental breakdown and various addictions. Many antics have seen her go viral, including self-identifying as a chicken nugget.
From “Fat Chicks” to “I Love You Moses”
In addition to her many atypical talents, which she regularly shares on Youtube, Trisha Paytas has also been pursuing a musical career for several years. In 2015, she released her first music video entitled “Fat Chicks” which has accumulated over 13 million views on Youtube. The track has been featured on numerous websites such as Cosmopolitan, The Huffington Post and Business Insider. Following her debut EP, she released a number of others, including the cover of “Hot For Teacher” for which Van Halen’s member David Lee Roth provided the introduction.
In 2016 her track “Daddy Issues” appeared on the Billboard Top Heatseekers album chart debuting at number 25. In February 2019, Trisha Paytas released a cover of “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper where she sings both parts. Within days, the video reached several million views which then allowed her to go on tour the same year with the “Heartbreak Tour” to promote her own music.
In March 2021, Trisha released a new song in which she declared her love for her new husband, Israeli artist Moses Hacmon. Both of them appear in the music video where he re-enacts a biblical scene. If Moses now knows how much his wife loves him, Trisha now wants to show all of Europe her love for her husband and his culture by representing Israel at Eurovision. What better place for such a statement?
Unfortunately for her, Trisha Paytas will not be able to represent Israel with “I Love You Moses,” as the song was released more than a year ago and it is against the rules of the contest. If she wants to have a chance to participate, Trisha will have to submit an original song.
Nevertheless, we can advise Trisha to apply for the American Song Contest where she will undoubtedly shine.
