Lil Tay is alive – level 2

15-08-2023 07:00

Lil Tay, a teenage rapper and internet star, was initially reported dead on her Instagram.

But later it turned out that the news was false. Her account was attacked by hackers, which made Lil very upset. She also clarified that her real name is Tay Tian, not Claire Hope. In the past, Lil Tay became famous for showing off money and very expensive things.

Her social media account was quiet for a while, but then there was news about problems with her family and manager.

Difficult words: initially (at first), clarify (to make something clear), show off (to behave in a way which makes other people interested).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
