About Spoiled Child

Spoiled Child was born in Toronto in 1980. She was raised in Los Angeles, where her father was a music producer. But this had absolutely nothing to do with her brush with stardom after recording her first hit single at age 9.

"PAY ATTENTION (TO ME)" was Number 18 on the charts for two weeks and Spoiled Child enjoy a season of touring to arenas in all major cities. After a brief retirement at age 10, Spoiled Child went back to school while also making sporadic TV appearances, until the age of 15, at which point she dropped out to travel the world on her Daddy's yacht.

At age 19, she briefly attended university, until her father cut off her allowance. Since dropping out of university, she has had many successes, including exciting careers as a spoken word artist (2001 - 2002), yoga teacher (Aug 2002 - Oct 2002) motivational speaker (2003 - 2006) and reality TV star, (2009). She has spent a year living in a Buddhist monastery, a year in rehab, a year in Peru which she will never speak of again, and for the past three years has been living in Toronto, where she maintains a close personal friendship with the Mayor and his associates.

In 2010, Spoiled Child travelled to Nunavut, where she first became aware of the plight of the polar bears. Wanting to do something to raise awareness, she began a campaign to "Save the Polar Bears." Having successfully done so in 2013, Spoiled Child is now waiting for the Universe to tell her what her next move should be.
