Behind The Stream: Tetrisgoddess
As one of my earliest followers, friends and supporters online it’s amazing it’s taken this long to interview Tetrisgoddess. A person I have a ton of respect and admiration for. Tetrisgoddess is a multifaceted and incredibly creative content creator. She is always using her large following and platform to interview and promote other content creators, writers, mental health advocates, activists, bands, sex workers and other artists. She is a very skilled Tetris player and hosts Tetris battles on Twitch monthly. On top of all of this she is a popular adult content creator. All in all one of the most down to Earth people I have ever met and lucky to have as a friend, enjoy this interview with an absolute gem of any community she is apart of.
I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down with professional Cosplay Models, Chefs, Artists, Clothing Designers, Movie Directors, Hair Stylists, fellow Podcast Hosts, Doctors, Therapists, & even bands and musicians!– Tetrisgoddess on being a multitalented content creator
American born Fijian -Indian
Although I currently use Xbox to stream Tetris, I do prefer Playstation!
Current games streaming?
This will be a shocker! Tetris!
When did your streaming journey begin?
The unfortunate Covid Pandemic was the catalyst to my now streaming career. I grabbed a selfie stick in August of 2020 after losing my full time job and haven’t looked back since.
Do you have a type of genre of game you prefer to stream?
Despite my handle being TetrisGoddess (& having a passion for Tetris playing as my name suggests), my passion is being the hostess to my IG Live Podcast series entitled GoddessGrillSessions. Upon starting my streaming journey, I picked the handle TetrisGoddess because I thought game playing was a must to be a streamer on Twitch. Shortly after quickly hitting Affiliate, Twitch shadow banned my account for two years-directly affecting my viewership & stream engagement. I didn’t want to discontinue streaming so I took my solo-just chatting streams to Instagram Live. You can refer to me as a “jill of all trades” because I’m an OnlyFans model in addition to a Tetris Player & Podcast Hostess! I mainly used IG to promote my OnlyFans at the time, as I greatly needed the financial gain OnlyFans offered after losing my job-until a fellow streamer peer advised me to show the world more of my talents. I pondered long on his guidance & decided to start interviewing fellow streamers on Instagram live. (Interviewing people in person was an aspect of my old career that I greatly missed) My interviewing peers turned into something great-something more. During the two year tenure of my Podcast, I’ve had the honor of working with extraordinary people. I’ve interviewed courageous people who’ve shared their life battles with mental health, addiction, cancer, & more. I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down with professional Cosplay Models, Chefs, Artists, Clothing Designers, Movie Directors, Hair Stylists, fellow Podcast Hosts, Doctors, Therapists, & even bands and musicians! I’ve hosted performances & even interviewed some celebrities such as Kayla Jones, Captain of Jackson Mississippi’s “Dancing Dolls” & Reality TV Star AND Manuela Horn aka The Yodeling Dominatrix-America’s Got Talent Finalist & personality. GoddessGrillSessions also includes many Podcasts on a variety of unique topics such as Greek Mythology, The infamous Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial, the life of Nirvana’s lead singer Kurt Cobain, and much more. I totally didn’t mean to rant here–but GoddessGrillSessions is my baby & I wanted to explain how it was born.
I’ve also guest appeared on several Podcasts and even worked with the very well-known Sam Tripoli (Comedian, Podcast host-most known for being on the Joe Rogan Experience)
Do you have a schedule?
I do! I create a unique schedule every month including all my Podcasts, Solo Streams, Tetris Battles, and more!
What was the first game you streamed?
Dead by Daylight…no just kidding, it was Tetris lol
Do you have other streaming partners?
I’ve worked with many different people but I do have peers that I’ve streamed with regularly-they are all incredible!
@mirataylorwellness – Master certified Mental Health Practitioner-my personal guide & friend. Mira is by far one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever met & I’ve learned a lot from her. My favorite Podcast with Mira (& it’s hard to pick) would be my initial interview with her, and our Saint Patrick’s Day Podcast.
@cosmic.peach.podcast – Hostess of The Cosmic Peach Podcast & incredible friend. You can always count on Julia to bring the FIRE & truth. My favorite Podcast with Julia was a recent one on The Poltergeist movie. I also had a great time being a guest on her Podcast discussing romance novels & serial killers.
What is the most outlandish thing that has happened to you while streaming or while you were watching someone stream?
Unfortunately, being an Adult Model on OnlyFans has it’s downside. Some people tend to think of me as content rather than a person & I’ve had people in chat on my podcasts & streams write sexual & inappropriate comments.
What is your ideal Twitch community?
My ideal streaming community is one with people who show respect to myself & one another & support one another.
What do you like to see in your Twitch community?
I am so fortunate to have the best Twitch & IG Live community. I have incredible friends who are also supporters. I couldn’t ask for a better community-minus the people who make the inappropriate comments I’ve mentioned above.
What are some things Twitch needs to address?
FAIRNESS. I mentioned being shadow banned from Twitch after hitting Affiliate -the reason given was Sexual Content. Sure, I wore some low cut clothes but many women express their sexual empowerment in the same way on Twitch. I’ve seen women show a lot more skin than I ever did & don’t understand why I was punished for it. We should all be treated equally.
What makes your streams unique?
I do many things! I interview people with a wide variety of stories- I Podcast on very unique & interesting topics, of course I play Tetris but have recently incorporated new content such as cooking streams. I often host performances from musicians and include solo just chatting streams. I incorporate my seductive nature in my content to showcase my OnlyFans creations.
What would you tell a brand new streamer or wish that someone told you when you were first starting out?
You don’t have to know everything or be “perfect” to start. Be sure to always support others! One of the greatest advice I could give is don’t feel limited to one type of content-which is contrary to what fellow peers say-but if you have many talents, don’t be afraid to showcase them all! One last thing: I highly suggest putting forth your utmost effort in all aspects of the stream–don’t confuse this with perfection. I think it’s important to not, “half ass” your work if that makes sense because it shows. Also, take breaks and put your real life first -Always!
What is rewarding about streaming?
I learn so much from my peers, my Podcasts & about myself each time I stream. I additionally greatly enjoy supporting others & using my platform to raise awareness on many issues.
Parting words/ shout outs?
