With her rapidly growing fan base, Bella Poarch is quickly becoming one of the most popular social media stars in the world. But it's just the beginning for Bella Poarch.
As a social media star that's recently risen to fame, Bella Poarch's career has just begun. In the past, our big stars rose up through different methods: Soundcloud and YouTube, uploading covers of established artists before they were 'discovered'.
It's different now. Many songs that perform well in the charts do so because people use snippets of them to go viral on TikTok. That's why we've assembled a guide to TikTok star Bella Poarch and where her career as a singer and a social media personality has been so far. Let's get started!
Early Life and Family
The life of many stars is cloaked with mystery. Some stars prefer to keep their lives to themselves. Others prefer not to share. This isn't the case with many Gen Z TikTok stars.
Many use the platform as a form of therapy, raising awareness, and connecting with their peers over similar issues. Bella Poarch is no different. For a new TikTok star, it's safe to say that we'll learn even more about Bella Poarch as the years go on.
Her real name is Denarie Taylor. She was born in the Philippines to her biological parents. She was raised there until she was three years old, by her grandmother.
At that point, she was adopted. Her entire childhood was rooted in the Phillippines, with her adopted brother and two adopted siblings.
Her adoptive parents met in Saudi Arabia. Her father was American and had served in the military, while her adoptive mother was also Filipino.
During her time in the Phillippines, Bella worked on the family farm. Even at seven years old, she was responsible for many of the main farm responsibilities.
Bella Poarch's Adolescence
However, the family had to move when Bella was 13 years old. Her adopted brother, Bella, and both parents moved to San Francisco. Then, her father needed bypass surgery. As a result, the family moved to Texas.
Denarie Taylor, also known as Bella Poarch, enlisted in the U.S. Navy at 18. Her adoptive father's military service may have prompted her to take this step. However, she reported that her father's abuse continued until she joined the military.
It's possible that Bella Poarch, like many other teens, saw the military as a way out. She enlisted in 2015 and served in both Japan and Hawaii. She served for four years.
After her military career, Bella joined TikTok. This turned out to be a life-changing decision for the young star. She joined in January 2020 and began posting content once the pandemic started.
In the beginning, most of Bella Poarch's content focused on cosplay and gaming content. In August 2020, everything changed for Bella. In other words, she went viral.
She lip-synced to Millie B's song, "Sophie Aspin Send." The video, of Bella lip-syncing and bouncing along to the song, became TikTok'st most liked-video of all time.
This success prompted Bella Poarch to start a Twitter account and a Youtube channel. Slowly but surely, her career was gaining traction.
In 2020, she released a limited clothing line. It was called RIPNDIP x Paca Collection. While it didn't make major waves in the fashion world, Bella was establishing her brand.
As a lip-syncing, gaming, cosplayer TikTok star, Bella snagged attention from two major Esports organizations. These organizations were 100 Thieves and FaZe Clan, who signed her as a content creator under their banners.
As a talented live streamer and gamer, Bella was exactly what those brands needed. Her star began to rise until she eventually signed a deal in Spring 2021 with Warner Records.
On May 14, 2021, Poarch released "Build a Bitch." As her first debut single, it's currently racked up over 338 million streams on Spotify alone.
The song hit a chord with the body positivity movement. As a budding role model for many young people, the song became a pop anthem for young people who were carving out their own individual paths.
When she released the music video, Poarch cemented her status as a rising pop star. The video, which snagged attention from Billboard, leveraged Internet star power from Mia Khalifa, Bretman Rock, ZHC, and Valkyrae.
Bella kept building her platform. On TikTok, she currently has 91.1 million followers, and 2.2 billion likes. On her YouTube channel, she has 6.13 million subscribers.
This massive social media platform provided the perfect foundation to launch her first self-titled EP: Dolls.
Bella Poarch's First Album
As a singer, Bella Poarch's career is just beginning. She's an established social media personality and TikTok influencer, which is a double-edged sword.
In the music industry, artists often need to build a platform from scratch before anyone even gives them a chance. They need to build viral moments, curate a following, and generate millions of likes.
Many people lament that the music industry isn't how it used to be. This is true. In some spaces, music isn't art anymore. Instead, music and artists are a product to be neatly packaged and put on a shelf.
To break out of this mold, stars need to build their own following. That's exactly what Bella Poarch did as an aspiring gamer, live streamer, and cosplayer on TikTok.
Now, though, she is also a singer. Her platform has given her the opportunity to put out an EP and expect moderate, if not viral success. As of the time of this article, it's been less than 24 hours since the release of Dolls. It's too soon to tell how it will perform!
That platform is a blessing and a curse. Because of it, many people expect Bella Poarch's EP to be "TikTok music." In other words, they expect her music to be a fluffy, meaningless, pop-generated earworm because she initially got famous on TikTok.
While this is an unfair expectation, critics seem to agree that Bella has defeated this stereotype so far. Her six-song EP, with features from only two artists (including Grimes) has generated some positive hype so far.
The Bella Poarch EP
It includes the single that brought Bella Poarch so much fame in the first place: "Build a B***h." Out of the six songs on the album, three were already released. This includes Build a Bitch, Inferno, and Dolls.
All of these titles fall firmly within pop, EDM, and techno. These genres are popular right now, and will likely continue to be so as the music industry chases a viral soundbite approach to art.
Due to her difficult childhood, Bella has turned to music to process everything she's dealt with. When she penned a caption to announce this album, she gave an important window into her creative process.
Here's what Bella had to say: “Over the past year, I’ve been working on this project which is a reflection of the everyday fight we all live. Each song reflects something different. Power, the need to fight, battling with inner demons, tapping into that main character energy, the sensitive side, and the urge to scream at the top of your lungs.”
In other words, Bella is creating music for her younger self—and by the same extension, her younger fans who may need to hear the exact same thing.
There's not much known about Bella Poarch's romantic life. She stated that she was in a relationship during her time in the Navy. According to her, the significant other was also serving in the Navy.
However, the relationship ended because she decided to leave the Navy. After that, not much is known about her romances.
For a while, rumors flew around that Bella Poarch and Tyga were an item. If you're not familiar with Tyga, he's a rapper that is also known for dating Kylie Jenner in the past.
These rumors began when Bella Poarch and Tyga appeared in TikTok videos together.
Bella Poarch herself called out these rumors and stated that they were untrue. As far as we know now, Bella Poarch is single.
Nothing is known about Bella Poarch's relationships prior to her time in the Navy. For the most part, Bella seems to be keeping her romantic life on the down low, which may be important for her privacy and mental health.
