Host, DJ & Culture Critic


Amanda Seales (formerly Amanda Diva) is a true Renaissance woman.  As an undergrad at SUNY Purchase she designed her own major. She’s kept the world laughing on over 25 VH1 clip show specials. Lil Wayne shared his private art collection with her on MTV. She wrote, produced, & sold out two one-woman shows, It's Complicated: Hilarical Answers to Serious Questions About Love & Death of the Diva, in New York City. She has 58k+ twitter followers and even more opinions. Amanda Seales is well connected and well respected for being opinionated, fearless, and HILARIOUS. A one of a kind renaissance woman, with a Master’s in African American studies from Columbia University and years of experience, Amanda has built a global following and garners industry respect for addressing what most are either too scared or too PC to. Speaking on politics, pop culture and everything between she has become a respected voice providing commentary for major outlets such as VH1, HLN, CNN, MTV, AOL, Huffington Post, and more. For years Amanda has cultivated her brand of one of a kind interviews, sidesplitting sketches and thought provoking commentary. Yet, whether interviewing an A list celebrity like Jay-Z or Joe Jonas, doing a sketch based on the latest news or TMZ tweet, or speaking on everything from Obamacare to TomKat she pulls audiences in with her down to earth persona and keeps them riveted with quick wit and truth telling. Along with her electric personality her veteran experience as an entertainer, host, DJ, and painter give her an artistic perspective that along with her electric charisma create a rapport with guests unlike any other. Currently a comedian on Vh1's "Best Week Ever" and the host of VH1 & Smirnoff's "Master of the Mix" season 3, DJaying all over the world, and recently selling 6 original pieces at her first solo art show "Warrigirls & Hairoines", Amanda Seales has created her own niche for years keeping audiences and readers riveted by keeping it funny while keeping it real.
