In October 2010, Singh started a YouTube channel under the pseudonym "IISuperwomanII". She has explained that the name Superwoman was prompted by a childhood idea, making her believe she could do anything. Starting out, Singh had intended to go to graduate school as her parents had requested, but chose to make YouTube videos and decided that she would return to graduate school if her YouTube career did not progress.

In December 2011, Singh created a second channel called "SuperwomanVlogs", now titled "Lilly Singh Vlogs", where she chronicles her daily activities and includes behind the scenes footage from her videos. She used it as a second channel to upload videos until August 2014, when she began uploading vlogs. Singh appeared as a background dancer in the movies Speedy Singhs and Thank You in 2011.[20]

In August 2013, Singh was featured alongside Jassi Sidhu in his Punjabi song Hipshaker. Singh rapped in the song Mauj Ki Malharein, which played in the Bollywood drama Gulaab Gang in August 2014.[21] In July of the same year, she released a song titled #LEH in a collaboration with her friend, author and rapper Kanwer Singh, who is known by the pseudonym "Humble the Poet".[22] In 2014, Singh appeared in a small role in the Canadian production Dr. Cabbie.

In 2014, her channel ranked at #39 on New Media Rockstars Top 100 Channels.[23] The same year, she was nominated for a Shorty Award and a Streamy Award.

Singh was cast in HBO's film adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 after recording an audition outside an Internet café in Melbourne, Australia. She was in the region to promote her book and rushed the audition at her agent's urging around 2 a.m. in May 2017.[34] She plays the character of Raven, "a tabloid blogger who works with the fire department to spread the ministry's propaganda by broadcasting their book-burning raids to fans".[35]

In August 2019, Singh dropped the name "Superwoman" in an Instagram post.[45][46]

Singh garnered controversy for her remarks on turbans.[47][48][49] During a visit to Jessica Alba's home, Singh met Alba's two young daughters who were both wearing twisted towels on their heads, to which Singh responded "They look like my Punjabi friends [...]"[50] On September 27, 2019, BBC reported that Singh had apologized for an on-air joke that compared turbans to bath towels, in which members of the Sikh religion, who wear turbans for spiritual reasons, were angered by her remarks on NBC,[51] with the BBC remarking that "[Singh] has used her platform to often call out public figures who she says deserve to be "cancelled" for their offences."[51]

On October 19, 2019, Singh was named one of Vogue India's Woman of the Year.[52]

Personal lifeEdit

In February 2019, Singh came out as bisexual to the public via social media.[69]

PhilanthropyEdit

Comedic styleEdit

Punjabi culture is frequently portrayed in her videos, which contain satires on people's complaints and prominent issues.[72] Her most popular video is Three Girls, One Elevator (ft. Zendaya & Winnie Harlow) which also promotes her women's empowerment campaign GirlLove, and her most popular series features her fictional parents, Paramjeet and Manjeet, both played by Singh herself, reacting to trending and controversial videos.[72][73][74] She also frequently collaborates with celebrities on her videos.[75]

Allegations of cultural appropriationEdit

Singh has also been accused of cultural appropriation of African-American culture, from such publications as The Huffington Post, Bitch, ColorLines, and Vice.[76][77][78][79][80] Anna Silman of The Cut accused Singh of appropriating both black and Indo-Caribbean culture on her channel because of her tendency to don a "blaccent", whilst making rap videos sporting chains and cornrows.[81] Tayo Bero of Teen Vogue wrote that "[Singh] falls into a category of non-Black people of color in entertainment who have built massive followings often by mimicking Black culture and leaning heavily into Black stereotypes."[82] Rachna Raj Kaur and Radheyan Simonpillai of Now similarly criticized Singh's appropriation of Black culture due to her use of braids, hip-hop slang and Caribbean accents.[83][84] Singh has responded to the criticism, by stating her mannerisms are due to her upbringing, adding "all my friends from Scarborough act exactly like me.”[85]
