“Ms. Shirleen” Went From IG Comedy Skits To Starring In Tyler Perry Films! | I Went Viral


(upbeat music) – This is how I stay out of the system. (laughs) I stretch on my haters. (typing) My name is Christianee Porter
and a lot of people know me as Ms. Shirleen. Understand these waist trainers is killing y’all. My niece just fell out down
here at the Red Lobster, The waist trainer video was inspired by just being hot in Atlanta. Y’all want to make it out
here through the summer stop killing ya selves. So you have women wearing these
waist trainers in the heat, that’s dangerous, that’s
a recipe for falling out. We calling up the main line
with that kind of foolishness. It’s gettin’ reckless out here. I realized the video went viral when I had different people calling me, congratulating me that my video had been shared on
Shadekinge and Balleralert and then I went on there and I
started seeing these comments and then I was on my own page
and I started seeing this, this blue, that’s what I call it, just seeing blue and it was the followers,
people coming and coming and I’m like, something’s happening. Some opportunities that
I’ve been afforded to have, interviews in the AJC, Vibe, Rolling Out, Blavity, Tyler Perry posted me. I never thought that, you know, he would even recognize me in that sense, but I thought it was pretty major. Some people from Tyler
Perry’s studio contacted me and were like, we want you
to come in and audition. And I was like, oh wow
this is really happening, this is dope, that’s exciting. My part in the movie is
just Shirleen being herself showing up at the church. Hopefully that’s enough. People are saying how like
being popular on Instagram is equivalent to being
rich in Monopoly money. It’s real money and
it’s real opportunities. I’m about my business, I’m about my money. Be about your money, be
about the father’s business. My other characters I
have, Karen Dontcare, she’s a newscaster. Honesty and Prosperity, Dr. Jennastacia. My favorite character is
actually Yung Velvetta, that’s my rapper character. He actually represents that
starving artist in all of us. ♪ With that ornament booty ♪ ♪ Ornament booty ♪ ♪ Ornament booty ♪ ♪ Ornament booty ♪ It was easy to develop Shirleen because I just took her
from real life characters in my life. She’s actually my
interpretation of my stepfather, a couple of my aunts, and my step uncle. These waist trainers, you
don’t realize take 30% of your oxygen to your brain. This is the actual infamous two piece set from the waist trainer video. I would’ve showed you
guys the actual shoes that I wore with this outfit, but my original Shirleen
costume was stolen. That ain’t the work of the lord. We are actually outside at the location where I
shot the waist trainer video and it’s funny because
I haven’t even been here since I shot the video,
so it’s really weird. I like being in the hood when I film. You get some really,
really, awesome stuff. It could just be a bystander,
it could be a wig rolling by, it could be a dog running,
some pit bull puppies. Just gems that I always get in my videos when I shoot in places like this. (laughs) This place will always be special. This is where people are falling
out wearing waist trainers so I always have a place in my heart. Being viral has given
me the opportunity to be an entertainer full time. That’s my dream come true. (laughing) That’s my dream, that was
a dream but you don’t, oh god, I didn’t mean to cry like that. That was, that’s what I wanted. I always wanted to be an
entertainer full time. It’s as simple as it gets. To the people that (exhales) are doing what it is that I do and you still want to chase
your dreams and all this stuff and you’re working a job that you hate, it’s don’t stop. ‘Cause anything that you can think of that you want to do is possible to do it. I’m no different from anybody
else, you know what I mean. We have the same opportunities as far as you can get a free Instagram
account just like me. It’s just being consistent. And I think that when somebody
sees that it’s possible for somebody else, that’s motivating and
that should be inspiring to you to say, you know what, I can get behind a camera and
do some characters as well and you can, just like me. And your audience will find you.
