TikTok star Addison Rae apparently made a nice chunk of change off her recent WAP video which has also become one of her most popular uploads. 

Just like most songs that hit the chart and have a dance of some kind attached to it, TikTokers both big and small have been trying to recreate the captivating WAP dance.

Addison Rae, who has over 56 million followers on the video platform, shared one of the best recreations of the dance herself – leading to her upload getting over 100 million views within two days of it being live. 

As a result, it seems like she’s not only picked up a whole host of new followers from the TikTok, but also a nice chunk of change to add to her growing bank account.

Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s biggest stars.

According to TikToker dlitztv, the social media platform now pays creators around 0.02/0.03 cents per 1000 views they get on an upload, meaning that some of the biggest creators can really cash in on their popularity.

At the time of dlitztv uploading his TikTok, Addison’s WAP dance had just a touch over 107 million views, meaning she’d made over $3210 off the number of views alone. 

This fee, which might not make anyone jump out of their chair, just adds to any other money she makes through advertisers latching on to her popularity and sponsoring TikToks as well as other social media posts.

Back in early August, it was reported by Forbes that Rae made over $5 million in pre-taxed income in 2019. The figure might have been surprising to some fans given that, when it comes to TikTok, she still lags behind Charli D’Amelio in terms of followers. 

The $3210 might seem like a small figure compared to that reported $5 million, but at the end of the day, it all adds up. Even though Addison’s mom outshined her with her take on the dance, she’s only made around half of the $3200 – so the youngster has got bragging rights there.


Jake Paul claims he’s hospitalized ahead of Mike Tyson undercard fight

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
