Liane V (born Liane Valenzuela) is a Vine superstar who is closing in on nearly 1 billion loops and a whopping 1.6 million followers on Instagram. That's a lot of fans! Some speculate that her popularity is due to her positive vibe while others think she's just hot. She's a multi-hyphenate talent: singer, songwriter, dancer and model.
Liane V was born in San Jose, California and raised in Modesto. She represented the Philippines in the Miss Asia USA Pageant 2008. While in high school, she was an athlete, competing in gymnastics, cheerleading and basketball. Her parents ran a DJ company where she would perform during weddings and birthdays.
Liane V started Vine as a hobby, but it's now become a job. A recent commission of hers was to make a sponsored Vine for Jennifer Lopez's new song, Booty, paid for by the singer's record company. Liane said, "The secret to making a successful Vine is to be funny, obviously...it's to create great content that's relatable that is very creative and - you just can't think too much - just enjoy it and have fun."
Liane V described her journey: "Right after I graduated high school I moved to LA to follow my dreams and slowly everything is coming true! Using my spiritual gifts, abilities, and personality, I want to use my talents to reach out to people that enjoy music just as much as I do. I'm a strong believer in Christ and with my faith in God and passion for music, I'm unstoppable!!!"
"I remember taking band [in high school], singing in the choir, and performing in lots of talent shows. But it was music that took over. It became my getaway and therapy. So many of my friendships were built around my love for music."
In the spring of 2014, Liane V launched her line of urban street wear called Donut Headz. "I'm really proud of this new venture. It was cool to come up with some things that I know my fans would love to wear."
Liane V has also released music with Brand X. "I love everything I'm doing when it comes to being creative," she said, "but music has and always will be my first passion. I've always been around it, and have grown into it. Through music I have even bigger plans, and that is to become an international artist. With continued effort and focus, along with the strong team behind me, I believe that's going to happen."
Liane V is currently single and resides in Los Angeles, California.
