Thank you so much for everything. 🙂
Overly Attached Girlfriend, often abbreviated to OAG, is a fictional character and an Internet meme originating in a viral YouTube video published on June 6, 2012. The character was created by Laina Morris (born June 22, 1991). The video was a submission to a contest held by Justin Bieber who challenged fans to create a “Girlfriend” counterpart to his hit song “Boyfriend“. The video, which satirized elements of the Bieber song that have been perceived as clingy, featured Morris staring at the camera with a fixed smile while singing about Facebook-stalking her boyfriend and other themes.
In 2019, Morris announced her departure from YouTube and posted a video on July 25, 2019 detailing that she is no longer going to make videos and is quitting YouTube altogether. She talked about her own personal story with depression and anxiety that went on behind the scenes off camera. Prior to this announcement, she had only posted one video to YouTube in the previous two years.
