  • - [Both] We accidentally became a meme,

  • and this is that story.

  • - My name is Quenlin Blackwell.

  • I go by Quen Blackwell on the internet.

  • - (sings) It's Ms. Juicy, baby.

  • And you might also know me from this meme.

  • - That's me, yeah.

  • Do y'all want the long story or the short story?

  • (winding up noise)

  • (screams)

  • Okay, so I became a really big personality

  • on Vine and Twitter.

  • Would anyone like some stew?

  • 16 is a young age.

  • I was still finding myself as a teenager,

  • I was experimenting, doing crazy things,

  • while trying to juggle, like, be an internet personality,

  • horrible thing to do.

  • If you're a teenager on social media, get the fuck off

  • and go, you know, make a mistakes without the world seeing.

  • But I didn't.

  • So my family independently owns a skincare company

  • and wanted to like capitalize all my audience

  • on the internet.

  • And I was like, "Oh cool, you bet."

  • So it (laughs) it didn't work.

  • There was the main tweet of me like promoting the like,

  • "Hey guys, I have the skincare brands, like coming up."

  • My parents were like, "Can you post this product?

  • I'm like, "Yep."

  • Let me just do a little bit of face.

  • You know like, you know how Proactive

  • does like the skin thing really like just

  • make the skin look extra perfect?

  • I can't fucking do that from my house.

  • So I was like, yeah, let me just get this all good.

  • I'm like posting it, like, eh.

  • And then I wake up the next morning

  • and it has so many fucking retweets, like 200,000 retweets.

  • I'm like, oh yes, like.

  • But everyone was making fun of me.

  • People were like, this is a scam.

  • She's looks fake in her pictures.

  • The skincare actually worked

  • and it's my family skincare bread.

  • And then there was a tweet where someone asked me

  • about the product and I'm in the car with my friends like,

  • "Yeah, let's go to our (indistinct)."

  • Like trying to deal with like this internet the shit

  • at the same time and respond to the wrong tweet,

  • and they're like, "What will this do to my skin?"

  • And I'm like ingredients from around the world will like

  • it literally made no sense.

  • I was tweaked out of my mind tweeting that

  • but I couldn't come out and say that

  • because I was a child.

  • And I didn't even put out the product

  • because I knew in my heart, if these people think

  • I'm like evil and scamming, I'm not going to put it out.

  • And I didn't hear the end of it for like two years after.

  • Every time I would tweet it would be like quotes

  • (indistinct).

  • It'd be like ingredients from around the world.

  • It was the sentence I tweeted when I was tweaked out

  • of my mind.

  • So then the internet hated me, very, very badly.

  • And I became extremely anorexic.

  • This is like, it's so delusional.

  • But I thought all these people don't fucking like me.

  • Maybe they'll like me if I'm skinny.

  • That's what my brain told me.

  • I've suffered with eating disorder in the past.

  • But it just like, re-triggered it, like.

  • During that time I was delirious and delusional.

  • It happens when your brain isn't getting nutrients.

  • I went on a car drive,

  • because that's what I usually did when I felt overwhelmed.

  • And I was like, "Hmm, I think today I'm going to drive

  • into oncoming traffic because everyone fucking hates me

  • and I hate me too."

  • And then something in the inside of me

  • told me not to do that,

  • but I was just sobbing and sobbing.

  • And then I went home and I don't know what wire

  • in my brain got singed the fuck off because of the internet,

  • but I think to record it.

  • Put up the camera, I'm like, my mom always tells me,

  • "Scream it out, scream it out."

  • So then I just do that exactly.

  • And I'm like (screams).

  • No, I'm still sad. It didn't work.

  • People do what Twitter people do,

  • after I posted that video and they quote tweeted it

  • and related it to themselves.

  • And then like a year later.

  • - [both sing] Ms. Juicy, baby.

  • - (laughs) And I love Ms. Juicy so much.

  • - I am Juicy and you just might know me

  • from Little Women: Atlanta.

  • (upbeat music plays)

  • Born and raised in Corsicana, Texas.

  • Always been in entertainment.

  • Growing up as a little kid,

  • because I was different from an average size person,

  • they wanted to stare, so I had to give them

  • a reason to stare.

  • I've never been shy, but I have the gift to gab.

  • So why not get paid to do what you love to do?

  • I think I was born a Dallas cowboy fan, honey.

  • It runs through my blood.

  • As a matter of fact

  • if I cut myself right now, you will not see red.

  • You will see blue and silver.

  • So I got to watch my Cowboys.

  • It doesn't matter where I am.

  • I love football parties, but when I'm watching

  • mu Dallas Cowboys, I need full concentration.

  • Look at this meme.

  • Baby, I was in deep though.

  • I don't need no company when it comes to my Cowboys.

  • I have to feel myself because I go live,

  • so I can interact with my fans while I'm watching a game.

  • Believe it or not some of you guys was there

  • when this meme happened

  • because I was on live talking to you.

  • Oh my God.

  • Sometimes when the Cowboys playing, oh, they get me on edge.

  • They had got tackled.

  • One of them had got tackled.

  • So I was very concerned because we needed to win that game.

  • And honey, look what done happen. A meme.

  • After this meme went viral, I was just on the internet

  • and somebody sent it to me and they say,

  • "Girl, look at you."

  • And you know what? I say, "They done did it again."

  • - So the first instance I've seen the two pictures

  • being brought together is from this Twitter user in Mexico.

  • - This meme is everywhere.

  • - It's artwork, I've seen it used for hospital ads

  • in like Columbia.

  • Oh, I saw me in someone's homework.

  • I was explaining a math problem.

  • Even though I did want to kill myself that day

  • it turned into such a cool thing.

  • - I would love to meet the young lady by the name

  • of Quinn because honey, you have changed my life.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you Quinn.

  • I really appreciate it.

  • - Ms. Juicy, before our meme existed with us together

  • I loved you.

  • I knew you and I would love to meet you in real life.

  • After this whole pandemic ends.

  • Humans are imperfect and we all have struggles

  • and if you have an eating disorder,

  • it's a really common issue.

  • It's the highest mortality rate of any mental disorders.

  • So I would say take it seriously.

  • Reach out to someone.

  • You'll feel 10 times better healthy than you will skinny

  • and cold and frail and dying.

  • - I would say anybody. that's going through something,

  • always think of the positive, make any negative situation

  • turn it into a positive situation.

  • That's the way I go with my life.

  • - This is the best thing that could ever exist.

  • And I'm so grateful for it all.

  • So cool.

  • It's so cool.

  • Like my kids are gonna be like, "Mom, what did you do?"

  • I was like, "Be a cool-ass bitch."

  • That's all your mom did.

  • Your mom was a meme.

  • (trumpet music plays)

  • (continues to play)
