Pop star Tinashe is trying any and everything to get her career back on track.
Two months ago, Tinashe leaked to the press that she was bisexual. Clearly she hoped the "controversy" surrounding her sexuality, would make her go viral.
Now she's going a bit more extreme. Yesterday, Tinashe went on Instagram Live and leaked a twerk video. The pretty young Los Angeles native videoed herself dancing on her balcony - and streamed it to her millions of followers.
This time she did go viral - but for all the wrong reasons.
Tinashe timeline was filled with young girls that were disappointed with the twerk video. Many of them were "hurt" that a clean cut pop singer like Tinashe would resort to such "desperate" behavior on social media.
And the criticism worked. Almost as soon as she posted the video, Tinashe deleted it from her Live. Luckily for you guys, we managed to get a screenshot of the video:
Here is the video:
Tinshe started off her career as a child actor. She worked as as a motion-capture model in the animated film The Polar Express (2004), Robin Wheeler in the Cartoon Network television series Out of Jimmy's Head (2007–2008), and a recurring role in the CBS series Two and a Half Men (2008–2009).
Tinashe's music career has been very - blah. Her debut single, "2 On", reached number one on the Rhythmic airplay chart, and peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Her debut studio album, Aquarius (2014), was noted by music critics as one of the most “solid” debuts by a new female artist in years. The album garnered her nominations for Soul Train and BET Awards. Her collaboration with Snakehips and Chance the Rapper, "All My Friends", won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song in 2016.
Tinashe's second studio album Nightride (2016) reached number 8 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in the US. Joyride (2018), her third studio album, peaked at number 58 on the Billboard 200 chart and reached number 6 on the UK R&B Albums chart.
