I completely agree, but to an extent. I don't like that people think that people on the Internet aren't real, which is fine because it makes me want to prove them wrong twice as much. She said, "When I'm Justin Bieber, guys and girls go crazy for me!

During an interview with The Hollywood ReporterRyan revealed that although she has respect for most of the people she parodies, the Kardashians were the exception. She said, "It's hard for me to go to a shallow place and so Kim Kardashian is the one character that I walk away from that I'm not in love with. The Kardashians are probably the only ones that I'm like, yeah, don't like them after playing them, I still don't really care for them.
But I love to do them, because we've got to do them. She did this on Brody Jenner's E! Ryan co-hosted the talk show alongside Jenner and relationship therapist Dr. Mike Dow, and offered viewers advice on relationships, but mostly answered questions relating to sex in her characteristic comedic way. It made me feel really good so I wanted to share it with my parents. I put it on YouTube and before I knew it, there were people leaving me comments like, "You're ugly and stupid and dumb!
No matter who you are You can be the most talented person in the world and you put anything on the Internet and all you're going to get is hateful responses. I didn't know that at the time. I don't think anyone knew that yet. I was like, "Oh hell no they didn't! These bitches do not know what they just asked for!
And then it just took off. Little Loca really took off on its own and for months people thought this was a real girl. I started uploading videos every day.
I was writing the video before I shot it. I would write it all out and then I would shoot it and then I would edit it and then I thought of putting music behind it. It just kept growing.
When I was getting responses and having people actually watch, it was feeding this. All of the sudden it was like a drug. I could not get enough. I don't care if there was one fan. If there's one person watching because they like it, I will create for that one person.
I love to create and entertain. I became almost addicted to it. I realized that I liked to write. I realized I liked editing and setting up the camera shots and seeing different angles and the lighting.
I figured out I looked better in this type of lighting. It was really just discovering all these things and that's when I had the realization of "Wow! I don't just want to be an actor. I want to be the whole freaking pie. Then I started losing my mind and getting super OCD on it and I wanted to be the best camera person, the best editor, the best everything. I got really obsessed with every part of it. When I met with this production company to create the show I made it very clear: I met one-on-one with every writer.
Every single person that worked on this show was someone I vibed with and I thought it was really important to keep that creative vibe and creative control because the most important thing of the show would be to have my voice.
It all started from me being super weird and uploading weird videos online. I have really bad social anxiety as well. I prefer to stay in than to go out.
People don't ever think that about me. It also was a way for me to be social without being social. It was just easy for me to stay inside and to create these videos. In the end, it worked out. Ron Jaffe VH1 You mentioned creative control. Has there ever been a time when you yourself said, "Hold up. I might be going too far with this skit? He worked on The Soup before he started working on our show.
He very much has my voice and he knows me and the show very well. I tend to go to very dark places. You have to go to dark places to be in comedy; it's just a natural thing.

I can get pretty dark with things and I can go pretty far with things. I usually do it when we're in the room having our table reads. I'll add things to go on this dark downward spiral.
And he's always the one who pulls me back in. I think without Darren, I might go a little too far on certain things.
He's there to say, "Whoa! Where the hell are you going? Turn it around and come back to normalcy. Not everyone's as crazy as you. Who's been your favorite celebrity to parody? I'd have to say Justin Bieber. I don't want to pick favorites because honestly, it's always a discovery whenever I play a different person.
It's a discovery of myself and my strengths and how far I can go and what worlds I can take myself to. But if I had to pick just one, I'd have to say Justin Bieber because I can't even get someone to return a text or a phone call. Let me just tell you: I've been celibate for the past six months. I don't get asked on dates.
No one ever wants to go out with me. Even working on the show, there were cute people around me and they're like, "Oh, but you're our boss. I've been single for two years. I haven't even been asked on a date in I don't know how long. But when I'm Justin Bieber, guys and girls go crazy for me!
If I'm Justin Bieber, all of the sudden every girl is writing me or texting me or hitting on me somehow. Even the guys are like, "I don't know what it is, but you're really sexy as Bieber. This is going to sound weird, but I've never been so attracted to you before.
I haven't heard from any of them but the Pretty Wild girls. They went crazy over the video I made of that show. I did have Tracy from Jerseylicious contact me and say, "Please make fun of our show and play me.
I have people that come in all the time and they told me that I remind them of Stevie Ryan. I looked you up and I loved your stuff. Can you please parody our show? I've had requests which is really, really cool.
What special plans do you have for Sunday night at We're going to watch the East Coast feed of it and I will be doing some live tweeting and interacting while the show is going on.
