XiXi Yang’s Story
XiXi Yang: Entertainment TV Personality, Executive Producer, Social Media Expert
XiXi Yang is the Host and Executive Producer of “PopStop TV,” a weekly pop culture TV show where she delivers the latest celebrity gossip and social trends from all over the world by getting up-close-and-personal with young Hollywood’s hottest stars. XiXi is also the Host and Executive Producer of a Mandarin Chinese entertainment program “Hollywood Now,” which provides Chinese viewers a much more candid look at the next generation of Hollywood celebrities.
XiXi was born in Nanjing China and raised in both China and Japan. When XiXi came to the U.S. at the age of 9, she discovered her passion for pop culture on a global scale. Growing up in 3 different countries gave XiXi the opportunity to experience culture shock at a young age. She was curious about the differences between Chinese, Japanese, and American entertainment news, but more importantly – she was fascinated by the fusion of Asian and Western media trends.
XiXi went to New York University to study Mass Media Communications, where she started working with MTV and MTVu. What began as an internship quickly turned into an on-camera opportunity when Viacom network producers discovered XiXi’s natural affinity to connect with people from all walks of life. During her 4-year-venture in New York City, XiXi hosted and produced segments for mtvU’s “College Dean’s Countdown,” DMTV (Channel 18 NY/NJ), Blender, Vh1, and more.
After XiXi moved to Los Angeles, she started covering red carpets and producing for AETV, Microsoft’s MSN TV, Facebook News TV, and more. In 2010, it was her passion for tracking pop culture trends globally and bridging the gap between the millennial generation and traditional media that led her to launch and co-find PopStop TV. What started out as an entertainment blog quickly skyrocketed in popularity, due to the PopStop TV team’s decision to cover entertainment news all over the world, interview stars that are on the verge of exploding in the mainstream, and providing the millennial generation a much more candid, authentic voice.
PopStop TV is recognized in mainstream media as one of the fastest-growing media companies for the 16-34 age range, and XiXi has interviewed some of the biggest stars like Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Justin Bieber, Meryl Streep, Usher, Shakira, Michael Buble, Jackie Chan, and more. XiXi’s interviews have made headlines on TMZ, KTLA, Sky TV, HLN, and are regularly featured on MTV, BET, Vh1, Complex, E!, OK!, and Us Weekly.
With her company Next Media Elite, LLC, XiXi also helped launch “Hollywood Now”, the Mandarin-speaking Chinese sister TV show to “PopStop TV”.
In addition to her own platforms, XiXi has contributed on a national level to HLN, Sky TV, “Sky News Sunrise,” TMZ, Us Weekly, and more. She can be seen as a guest host for E! News Now, MTV News, and more.
XiXi Yang currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
