Brittany Alexandria Sheets, known professionally as Mars Argo, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, model, photographer, Internet personality and YouTube personality. She is prominently known for her portrayal of fictionalized stage personas of herself on YouTube, particularly in the channel grocerybagdottv.
She is also known as the lead singer of the indie pop duo of the same name, named after her main stage persona, along with video director and musician Corey Mixter, known as Titanic Sinclair.
The duo released their debut studio album, Technology Is a Dead Bird, in November 6, 2009. Plans to follow through with a follow-up were scrapped. In a 2013 Vice article the duo stated that they were working on their own TV show, but this was also abandoned.
Along with interpersonal issues, the band went in a permanent hiatus in 2015, subsequently breaking up afterward. Inactive for three years, Sheets finally made a comeback in the form of a lawsuit against Poppy and Mixter in 2018.
Besides releasing music, she also created content on her YouTube channel, once co-operated by Sinclair for the duo. The channel's other content was often satirical, revolving around society and Internet culture. However, after the duo broke up, all but three videos were removed from the channel. The only three videos that still remain on their Grocerybagdottv channel to this day are 'Runaway Runaway', 'Using You' and 'Delete Your Facebook'.
Brittany Alexandria Sheets was born in Saginaw, Michigan on the 20th of April and attended university as a biology student before she and Corey Mixter started their YouTube project, grocerybagdottv. Growing up Sheets sung in her church choir, as well as being an equestrian, owning two horses. In an interview with Fearless Radio, Brittany stated that her mother never allowed her to play video games as a child, believing that they were too much of a distraction from her school work. In terms of style, Brittany's fashion sense is heavily inspired by all things Japanese.
After meeting Corey Mixter (Titanic Sinclair) on MySpace, Sheets formed the eponymous indie pop band Mars Argo after moving to Chicago. They also co-owned a YouTube channel under the title Grocerybagdottv, where they uploaded music-related content and a series of social commentary videos, dubbed Computer Show. Their most popular non-music video is a 2014 episode of this series, titled "Delete Your Facebook," mocking social media usage and the website of the same name. The music video for "Using You", the most well known single from the project, already counts more than 6 million views on their channel.
The duo released their debut studio album, Technology Is a Dead Bird, on November 6, 2009. It was followed up with an acoustic EP, Internet Sessions, in 2010, and another EP, Linden Place, in 2011. They began working on their eventually scrapped second album with Chicago-based producer, Johnny K, soon after Technology Is a Dead Bird was released. The couple moved to Los Angeles in 2012, where they filmed and released the remainder of their YouTube channel's uploads until early 2014, following the romantic separation of Sheets and Mixter. The band continued to perform during the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, before going on a permanent hiatus and eventually breaking up. Subsequently, this also led to Sheets falling off of the Internet from 2015 to 2018.
Sheets resurfaced in April 2018, now performing under the duo's name, and promised new music in the future to her fans.
Lawsuit against Sinclair and Poppy
On April 17, 2018, Sheets filed a 44-page lawsuit against Corey Mixter (Titanic Sinclair) and his current collaborator Moriah Pereira (Poppy) alleging copyright infringement, stalking and emotional and physical abuse by Mixter after their breakup and subsequent abandonment of the Mars Argo project. That same day, Argo posted a message on her social media pages to address the lawsuit, thanking her fans for their support and confirming new music to come. On May 7, Poppy made a public statement about the "frivolous" lawsuit, saying Argo was attempting to manipulate her psychologically. She called the suit a "publicity campaign" and a "desperate grab for fame".
The lawsuit was dismissed on September 14, having been settled out of court.
