Rayne Fisher-Quann

Since launching her blog Internet Princess in 2021, Rayne Fisher-Quann’s essays have been read over a million times, gaining her a readership in the hundreds of thousands. A true new-gen cultural critic, Quann started her blog on Substack after gaining 200,000+ followers on TikTok for her sardonic social commentary and short-form video essays, on topics as wide ranging as power and victimhood, self-diagnosis and identity politics, whether ‘body neutrality’ is possible to achieve, and much more. 

A relative online veteran, Fisher-Quann first gained an audience on Instagram through her proximity to (relative) celebrity when a friend got cast for Nickelodeon, then graduated to the world of online activism and local politics on Twitter – both influences that are visible, if less present in the space she occupies today. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Fisher-Quann cited performers Rachel Sennott and Annie Hamilton as well as Black feminist abolitionists Mariame Kaba and adrienne maree brown as some of her inspirations, stating that, “Following those people really instilled in me a desire to [...] resist the ironic detachment complex that was becoming very cool at the time.”

In her written work Fisher-Quann blends sharp criticism with intimate storytelling: popular culture, the internet, the politics of womanhood and her own psyche are dissected with equal rigour. Her writing is personal and honest without losing its analytical edge, and by documenting her own experiences, Fisher-Quann has built a singular voice that’s captured the attention of young women around the world.
