After she stole the show during a TexAgs video segment from The Grove on Saturday that has since gone viral with over 500,000 views on YouTube, Ole Miss student Shelby Herring will forever be known by college football fans as the “Mississippi Queen” and “The Girl in Red.”
On Thursday, the guys at TexAgs interviewed Herring over the phone to recount her rise to viral fame, highlighted by her adding nearly 2,000 Twitter followers since TexAgs posted the video on Monday.
“I thought that I should’ve toned it down a bit,” Herring said when asked about her reaction the first time she saw the video. “I know I’m a ridiculous person, but it was a little bit outrageous to say the least.”
When asked the worst part about her fame, Herring responded: “The worst part is that I look, like, stupid and I look drunk.”
She said it, not us.
From the sounds of it, the party isn’t ending anytime soon for Herring. A hospitality management major at Ole Miss, she’s taking an upcoming six-day trip to Las Vegas for which she gets course credit, taking tours of four of Sin City’s hotels.
If Saturday is any indication, Herring is going to make one hell of an event coordinator and hospitality management professional upon graduating.
