Who Is PinkPantheress? Real Name, Age And Key Facts
Who is PinkPantheress and why is she famous?
If TikTok is not your app of choice, then you might be familiar with her tracks Just For Me and Pain which peaked at 27 and 35 on the UK Top 40 after gaining traction on the app. The songs sample Central Cee’s Obsessed With You and Sweet Female Attitude’s Flowers (Sunship Edit), respectively.
What is PinkPantheress’ real name?
The singer, who uses her TikTok username as her alias, leaves her name a mystery. She chooses to keep her real name a secret, and until quite recently, she didn’t post her face on social media to protect her “privacy”.
She told the BBC in a recent interview: "I find it easier to not lay every single card on the table. I like my privacy and I felt like, if I have my music out and my face everywhere, it would start getting too much for people."
However, on April 30th 2021, the singer-songwriter did post a picture of a blonde girl in a shopping centre wearing a face mask and holding up a T-shirt which says “life in pink” and fittingly depicts the Pink Panther cartoon. Though, she could just be a friend to the star.
