Greyson Chance is coming to a radio, television and website near you this summer.
Remember when pint-sized Greyson Chance was just a 12-year-old playing Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi at his school’s talent show? Oh, wait — it was only a year ago, but what a year for the young singer. First, his YouTube video caught the attention of Lady Gaga and Ellen DeGeneres and attracted 60 million views. Then, DeGeneres signed him to her new record label.
Now? Chance is leaving nothing to chance with a new video for the first single off his new album: Unfriend You.
“I think Unfriend You is an amazing record because, one, it’s a breakup song, which breakup songs are always fun, and two, it’s referencing social media, especially in this day and age, I think it’s very important to reference social media in music,” Chance told MTV.
Like many 13-year-olds, Chance’s favorite part of filming the video was toilet papering a house.
“It’s been so much fun already shooting it,” he said. “We got to TP this house… This is just more things leading up to the record, so I’m really excited for it.”
Little Chance will turn pitchman this weekend when he hawks his album, Hold On ‘Til the Night, on QVC July 10. The morning appearance will include performances and the chance to preorder a special edition of the album, out August 2.
Chance will also make his acting debut this fall on Raising Hope.
“Looking forward to having Greyson Chance on a few episodes of Raising Hope next season,” show creator Greg Garcia wrote on Twitter.
Chance will reportedly play the younger version of Lucas Neff’s Jimmy in a three-show gig, according to Give Me My Remote.
