Social media can be overwhelming at times, and it’s easy to see so much negativity that gets a lot of attention. But social platforms have also become a place where creators, celebs and influencers are taking advantage of the instantaneous connection to followers, and flood the algorithms with positivity, light and love.

In the case of viral TikTok influencer Brooklynne Webb, she is on a mission to make sure all her followers know they deserve to feel confident in their bodies every day. As an outspoken advocate who champions celebrating body positivity, she has been featured on Good Morning America, TODAY, Nightline, Buzzfeed, NBC News, and the Daily Mail to name a few. She has a large social media following on TikTok with over 659 million likes and over 10 million followers, as well as over 505,000 followers on Instagram.

Adding to her impressive resume, Brooklynne made her musical debut with her single ‘My Crown’. Inspired by her rise as an influencer, it is a catchy track with a comedic twist. The song, which she co-wrote, also features the writing talents of rising pop artist Jillian Rossi, Alec Zeilon, and Frawley who is known for penning hits for Dixie D’Amelio and Tate McRae. The track is available now on all streaming platforms. Within just 24 hours of release, it had already amassed 1 million streams! The song is accompanied by a music video (seen at the end of this article) which was based on hit movies like ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘Legally Blonde’.

In a bid to constantly make sure we cleanse our social timelines with only the good content, we had the chance to chat with this absolute Queen about body confidence, making music, and self love.

Can you tell us how your influencer journey started? What made you want to begin posting videos about body confidence, self love etc?

My influencer journey actually began as nothing too serious! I started by making silly TikToks in school, but slowly started to grow more and more passion for it. Once my POV videos started to take off, I realized how many people I was reaching. I wanted to do something to make a difference and for me that was using my growing platform for body confidence and self love.

Why is body positivity important to you personally?

Body positivity is super important to me because there’s no reason you shouldn’t love yourself and have confidence. Once I started to truly love myself, I saw a shift in my confidence. This was a huge change and I have been able to accomplish so much since.

What kind of body role models did you have growing up, compared to what we are seeing today?

There are so many amazing role models like Lizzo, Ashley Graham, and Amanda Lacount. A lot of incredible people that really paved the way are still killing it.

As an aspiring model working to challenge industry stereotypes, why do you think more brands and companies should be inclusive of all body shapes and sizes?

Every body is completely different and no one should have difficulty finding clothes that fit them. A lot of plus size individuals have very few options in stores. Companies should be inclusive because everyone deserves to be able to go to a store and find affordable clothes that fit them and make them feel good.

For too long the mainstream fashion industry has shut out anyone who wasn’t practically a size zero, but now they are begging to work with influencers like you who have millions of followers on social media. How does it make you feel to know that you are leading the way?

It feels super weird, but exciting. There’s still a lot that needs to change especially in the fashion industry, but it’s nice to see things start to get better. 

In 2020, you teamed up with Bebe Rexha for a TikTok about body positivity that went viral. Why do you think so many people resonated with this video?

I think a lot of people resonated because it was super cool to see a celebrity with an influencer both sharing an important message together.

You not only model and dominate on social media, you are also a singer! Can you tell us about your debut single ‘My Crown’ and the message behind it?

My debut single, “My Crown,” was a fun, sassy pop song, but was also a way for me to troll my trolls a little bit! The whole song and music video was created to get a reaction, which was exactly what it got. It helped to shine a little bit of light on cyber bullying as well. 

The music video for ‘My Crown’ has over 2 million views since premiering Dec 2021. Can you share more about how you came up with the creative concept for it?

The creative concept was actually something that me and my best friend, Nicole, came up with. I really wanted a classic high school prom type video, but with a twist! The amazing director Caitlyn Phu came up with the concept of everyone really disliking me, and the music video became what it is today!

If you could go back to your younger self, perhaps at a time when you weren’t as confident as you are now, what would you tell that young girl?

I would tell that young girl to keep working hard and chasing your dreams. Just continue to put passion into everything you do and don’t worry about the judgement of others.
