One of the most popular personalities in that field today is former E! News correspondent, Sibley Scoles. She has earned a reputation for her reporting style and the freshness she brought to the industry.

But even though we know her as a reporter, she was once into music. Transitioning from being a professional singer to an entertainment journalist is not what we see every day. Despite the perceived difficulty, she has made a meal of it, and become a star. We covered everything you need to know about how she made the career move from singing to journalism, her net worth, and an answer to the question about the reporter’s mysterious ethnicity.

The Truth About Sidney Scoles’ Background

Sibley Scoles was born on the 7th of December, 1987, in La Jolla, Northern California. She is one of two daughters born to her parents; whose names remain unknown. Other than the fact that her sister’s name is Erica, there is not much to know about her familial background.

Sidney is of African and Asian ethnicity, and her Asian ancestry is reportedly Filipino. The entertainment journalist’s diverse ethnic background is the central theme of her life so far. She grew up in the Bay Area City of Fremont. Growing up in the city was her exposure to the multicultural and eclecticism of life and art. This exposure quickly led to developed interests in several activities and types of art. She developed an interest in fashion and style, while simultaneously enjoying sports like hockey, soccer, karate, and basketball. Scoles did not just have an interest in sports. She actively competed in them, soccer and basketball in particular.

Sidney equally had a broad interest in music and followed rock and hip hop. She later began her career in music after she graduated from high school and earned a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from a university in Northern California.

Having completed her academic journey, her desire to give her music interest a try birthed the persona, Sib Vicious, which she used as the stage name for her music career. She recorded and released a couple of songs, Rock That Party, Donuts, and Tie Me Down, and they got popular enough to earn her a touring opportunity with Taio Cruz and Vans Warped.

After a couple of years as a singer, Sibley Scoles made the transition to entertainment journalism. Despite having zero experience in the industry, she was offered a role as a host for Revolt News, an entertainment news show for Revolt TV. The offer made her the first female host for the media network.

It is difficult to say that Sibley Scoles would have found mainstream success as a singer if she had persisted with the career. But we know that her decision to switch career gears has been financially rewarding. This is particularly interesting because when comparing the similarities between journalism and professional music, money is not the first thing that comes to mind.

Yet, having been in the entertainment industry for more than a decade, the journalist has accrued an estimated personal net worth of $1 million. The journalist reportedly earns more than $111,000 per year. Along with her modest income during her singing days, and her modelling and TV commercial earnings, it is safe to say entertainment journalism has been a moneymaker for her.

No one is certain how exactly the journalist spends her wealth but when you consider the array of mesmerizing dresses and accessories she wears on TV and the red carpet, as well as the cost of her iconic hairstyle, a picture starts to come to mind.
