You haven’t seen the last of Alex from Target.
Frisco teenager Alex Lee, who stumbled upon Internet stardom after a photo of him bagging groceries at Target swept the web last fall, is using his few days of fame to kick-start a singing career.
When that famous photo of Alex went viral last year, #alexfromtarget appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and spawned hundreds of thousands of new Twitter followers in a matter of hours.
“You guys have been wondering what I have been doing with my life,” he says in a YouTube video Alex posted on Feb. 7. (If you have not been wondering, it’s fair to say some of his very passionate fans have been.) ”I have not been bagging groceries.”
He’s seemingly starting his own Alex Lee empire, according to the video: He’s going on tour — the DigiTour, which runs in February and March but does not touch down in Dallas; he’s launching a clothing line; he’ll appear in a music video; he’s making his own music; and he’ll act in a non-fiction movie about a kid with cystic fibrosis.
Alex says he’ll post videos weekly with updates.
