What happens when you put Gorilla Glue in your hair?
You become a national phenomenon, get free cosmetic surgery and become a rap star. At least that’s the plan for “Gorilla Glue Girl” star, Tessica Brown.
The 40-year-old is gearing up to drop her first single on Friday, November 19, aptly titled, “Ma Hair,” meaning her 15-minutes of fame is FAR from over.
“Gorilla Glue girl” becomes “Gorilla Glue rapper”

The viral star was spotted hitting up a Hollywood recording studio in October.
Tessica wrote the rap lyrics herself before working with independent music producer Phil Valley to create the track.
There’s always Cardi B… just sayin’.
Tessica Brown is ready for rap fame
The single will feature snippets from her TikTok video recorded in February which detail her Gorilla Glue mishap.
In case you forgot about what happened to Brown, let The Blast refresh your memory.
In January, the Louisiana native was rushing out of the house before a lake date with her fiancé Dewitt.
She explained in an interview with the New York Post in February that she went to spray Got2B hairspray in her hair, but when she sprayed her hair nothing but air came out.
“We was leaving so I mean I went to go spray the Got2B glue and air came out of it… so now I’m looking around the whole house, I have to find something you know for these flyaways,” she told the outlet. “We was going on the lake so I know I couldn’t deal with those flyaways, it wasn’t going to work, not sitting on the lake.”
She recounted running into the kitchen and passing a can of sprayable Gorilla Glue.
“I’m like you know what? I can use this and as soon as I come home I can take it off, you know wash it out,” she went on. “That is not what happened.”
Tessica posted a TikTok video of herself attempting to undo her hair, and as you can imagine, nothing came undone.
The video that started it all!

Her video garnered nearly eight million likes, nearly 250 thousand comments and over 650 thousand shares. It has been viewed over 50 million times.
In the video she says, “My hair doesn’t move! I’ve washed my hair 15 times and it don’t move! It’s been like this for a month now!”
Luckily for Tessica, there was a very generous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who came to her rescue.
Dr. Michael Obeng performed aa four-hour surgery to remove the Gorilla Glue from her hair free of charge.
The surgery was set to cost $12,500.00, but Dr. Obeng said “it’s on the house.”
He was able to figure out what compounds break down the glue and used that formula to free Tessica’s hair of the super strong adhesive.
