VenetianPrincess, or the Female Weird Al Yankovic is a YouTube Internet personality who became known worldwide in 2006. She is of Swedish and Italian ancestry, and grew up in Brockton, MA. Her videos are usually parodies of songs and events in pop culture. She is the #1 most subscribed female on YouTube, globally. She has over 730,000 subscribers, and has had over 180 million video views. She gained notoriety in 2006 after being featured on the front page of YouTube, and then in 2007 was one of the first people invited into YouTube's revenue sharing program. In December 2008, Samsung announced that her music video for her original song "Somewhere Else" is the pre-installed video on all Samsung Behold cell phones. PC World Magazine named her "7 Things Guys Don't Have To Do" music video one of the top 10 viral videos of 2008.
She studied opera as a coloratura soprano at the New England Conservatory of Music, in Boston, Massachusetts. She has since performed in several professional U.S. stage productions, including the touring production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera in which she played Christine Daaé.
Her official biography lists her background in modeling, including her most recent title of Miss Massachusetts State Queen.
She became popular for her episodic series The Princess Chronicles (formerly known as "The Disclosed Series"). The series is known for its elaborate editing and visual effects. Episodes 1 - 8 keep the title of "Disclosed," as those installments disclose the story of the princess's life in her Venetian palace. The Princess Chronicles begin at Episode 9 and start the story of her adventures around the world. Each episode introduces new magical and eccentric characters, all played by herself disguised in elaborate costumes.
She shoots her videos in her bedroom closet in front of a green screen with no help with filming or post-production. She uses Final Cut Pro to edit her videos, on a Mac Pro, using Chroma Key for her videos, to create different settings. She cites Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam as favorite directors.
On July 9, 2008, VenetianPrincess made a spoof of Miley Cyrus' 7 Things video. The original song was "7 Things"; her version covered the 7 things (and more) guys don't have to do, that females do. The video received 3 million views within its first month of being posted. It has since been favorited more than 150,000 times- making it one of the top favorited of all videos on YouTube. It is one of the most discussed videos of all time with over 100,000 comments. The video has received over 18.3 million views, and was one of the top 10 most viewed videos of 2008.
Other notable videos include her "Womanizer" parody, featuring other YouTube celebrities playing nerds such as nigahiga and Dave Days. It has been viewed 26 million times. She has released an album 'Video Girl' containing numerous parodies, including the ones seen in her videos and new ones. Another notable video is a collaboration with makemebad35 on the video "Drunken Genie" (known as "My Pretty Genie on makemebad35's channel), in which she plays a genie trapped in a bottle.
In 2007, she received media coverage for her videos, with appearances on Fox News, Boston, Fox News Milwaukee, and ABC News Boston. She was interviewed on Massachusetts radio station JAMN 94.5, and a two page article was also written about her in the Boston Herald on June 18, 2007. A segment about her videos was presented by Bill Weir on ABC's first episode of television series I-Caught, airing on August 7, 2007.
In late September 2007, her popularity grew with her Brangelina Parody "Adopt Me Too" Music Video. As reported by CelebTV, "Adopt Me Too" has over a million views. The video was reviewed on AOL News.
