We all know the power of the internet in creating online stars and French-born Sliimy (pronounced Slim-e) is no exception. He was discovered on Myspace by Perez Hilton in December 2008 with his cover of Britney Spears’ Womanizer. He also happened to signed his first recording contract straight out of high school thanks to the aforementioned cover.

The pop star (whose real name is Yanis Sahraoui) boasts over one million MySpace song streams, and his album ‘Paint Your Face’ has risen to No. 2 on the French charts.

Sliimy is ready to take on America. He’s already opened for Katy Perry and Britney Spears in Europe, and had a short tour of the U.S  in September.

Oh, he happens to have an adorable English accent when he sings. He also wears colourful and quirky clothing with XXL glasses. You just have to love him.
