Many of us know Cherry Crush as one of the most popular YouTube personalities in the world. However, not many know that she is quite influential across other social media platforms, including Instagram and Twitter. The amazing lady has garnered huge fame through her online presence and has built a large fan base on the aforementioned platforms. Aside from being a social media sensation, Crush also pursued a career in the adult film industry. She is equally a budding singer and has several tracks to her credit. Learn more captivating facts about Crush and her journey to fame below.
Her Childhood and Early Days as a Beautician
Although Cherry Crush has become a popular name on the internet, her journey to fame began several years ago. She was born on the 9th of July 1990 in Miami, Florida, to a British father and an American mother. As a result, she possesses dual citizenship of American and British, while her ethnicity is Caucasian. While growing up, Crush spent her formative years in both the United States and England.
She was home-schooled up until the 12th grade and upon completing her schooling, she found work in the beauty industry. Crush spent some time working in the sector but grew disenchanted as her job was not giving her any emotional or financial satisfaction. As a result of this, she decided to quit her job and then shifted her focus to creating vlogs on YouTube.
Entry into ASMR and Subsequent Fame on YouTube
Cherry Crush created her two YouTube channels, Cherry Crush and ASMR Cherry Crush, in March 2012. She started by posting makeup tutorials and beauty tips and gained a decent following. The Florida native, however, struck gold after she turned her attention to the ASMR subgenre of YouTube. For the uninitiated, ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is a tingling sensation that commences in the scalp and goes down the neck and upper spine, thus helping one to relax and calm down.
ASMR is triggered by various sensations, including whispering voices and scalp massages. In Cherry Crush’s case, she commonly utilizes triggers such as kissing sounds, humming, lip-smacking, rain sounds, as well as tapping to help her followers relax. Her methods have proved quite popular with the YouTube crowd. She now has over 776,000 subscribers and more than 147 million views on her ASMR channel, while her other YouTube channel boasts of at least 219 subscribers and 16 million views.
Aside from creating content for the YouTube community, Cherry Crush also works in the adult film industry as a model and actress. She has so far featured on several videos and this can be accessed on various adult platforms. Additionally, the multi-talented Crush is also a budding singer. She has uploaded several covers and original tracks on her channel, including Positive Affirmation, Random, and Hello Ears. Given her singing prowess, one would not be surprised if Crush drops a full-length work in the not so distant future.
She Was Once Estranged From Her Parents
Cherry Crush has not divulged many details about her family background. It is, however, known that her father is English, while her mother is American, as earlier mentioned. Crush’s parents initially disapproved of her decision to delve into the adult film industry. At some point, the YouTube personality lived with her dad, but he kicked her out after he realized that she was a porn star. Following this painful eviction, Crush had no choice but to seek refuge with her mother. The lady eagerly accepted her in her home and put her up for a while.
She, however, evicted her when her real occupation came to light. Following this second ejection, Cherry Crush moved into a hotel and lived there for some time. Thankfully, she has now found more stable accommodation. The YouTuber has also patched things up with her parents as they have come to realize that she is not harming herself, or anybody else, by doing porn.
