Before Career In Entertainment

Before moving into his current occupation, Sessoms' also briefly worked in print as a fashion model.
On January 7, 2007 Sessoms launched his website under the name “coupdetats.com”. Unlike other websites at the time, the mission of lovebscott.com was to approach entertainment and celebrity news with a positive spin. Sessoms’ philosophy is centered on providing pop culture commentary that is honest, witty, and fun but never spiteful or hateful. After a month of running coupdetats.com, Sessoms’ officially changed the name of the website to lovebscott.com in an effort to give his website a readily identifiable personality with the mission of conveying a positive outlook.
In May of 2007, Sessoms’ began incorporating Youtube videos into his website to personally connect with his readers. Ranging from musical performance to political commentary, the videos are unique in content and are produced out of Sessoms' Los Angeles residence. Sessoms' produced a song in attachment to one of his videos that pushed him to be signed with an indie label, Selektion Records, but his focus remains on celebrity news. The first video to get national attention was called “B. Scott On Shemar Moore Being Naked”. Other video topics that have gained notoriety have ranged from deeply personal confessions to reactions towards celebrity news. Sessoms is currently ranked the #67 most subscribed comedian on all of Youtube.com . In addition to the Youtube success, Sessoms' was also voted 'Hottest Blogger' by My Black Hollywood Magazine in 2007.
After joining the video network, Sessoms has quickly become one of the most subscribed members on Youtube, fueled by his improv-based and personality driven videos. Sessoms’ Youtube success lead to fellow blogger and friend, Perez Hilton, labeling him as his “Favorite New Youtuber” and ultimately being selected by Youtube to become one of the company’s partners. In addition to Perezhilton.com, Sessoms’ Youtube videos have been featured on top celebrity news sources such as Mediatakeout.com and Concreteloop.com.
While lovebscott.com has evolved profoundly since its initial inception, it continues to embrace the philosophy of approaching pop culture news in a way that is witty and honest but never cruel.
