Alison Gold (born May 9, 2002)[1] is an American pop singer most famous for the single "Chinese Food".

Career[edit | hide all | hide | edit source]

Gold was born in Fairfax, Virginia.[1] In 2012, she began working with Patrice Wilson, with whom she has worked on all her songs to date. Her first single, "Skip Rope", was released as part of the musical duo Tweenchronic[2] made up of Alison and another girl identified as "Stacy". She has since released three solo singles: "Chinese Food", "ABCDEFG", and "Shush Up".

The single "Chinese Food" charted at number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 2013, and had received over 14 million YouTube views by March 2014.[3]

Her songs have received strong negative attention, due to a lack of poetic depth[citation needed], as well as simplistic portrayals of other cultures, exemplified in her song, "Chinese Food".[4] The music video for the single "Shush Up" portrayed Gold in a sexualized manner, depicting a criminal in jail, at one point apparently being executed in the electric chair. The official copy of the video was later removed from YouTube.[5]

Since the removal, no new posts have come out of Gold's official Twitter or Facebook accounts.
