Charli and Dixie D’Amelio hit back at people who believed that Charli was stepping on her sister’s territory and starting a music career after she made a joke about rapping on a song. 

Since TikTok burst onto the social media scene in mid-2020, its success has seen the arrival of new stars, with none bigger than the D’Amelio sisters, Charli and Dixie. 

The pair, who have a huge following across all of social media, have expanded way outside of TikTok, with Dixie getting into music – and even had fans calling for her to be nominated for Grammy awards. 

Charli hasn’t quite gotten into music, outside of an upcoming feature on Dixie’s new song that caused some fans to hit out at her for stepping on her sister’s territory. Though, the sisters have cleared the air, with Charli mocking anyone who believed she was getting into rapping in the first place.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

During the February 11 episode of their 2Chix podcast, the sisters touched on how some fans took Charli’s joke about stepping into music way out of context, and that they shouldn’t have taken any notice to begin with.

“Charli is not rapping,” Dixie said, before Charli stepped in to explain her side of things. “I made a joke, and people were like ‘wow, Charli has to really like take over everything, why can’t she let Dixie have a music career, now she has to rap?’ 

“I had like a three-second speaking line in one of her songs that are not even out yet, so how can you guys be mad?,” Charli added. “And I was like, y’all really think I’m going to be rapping? If you really think that I’m going to start my rap career, that’s on you. Who would believe that?”

Of course, it’ll come as a blow to any fans who may have been excited to hear Charli step into the music game, but as she says, it wasn’t to be believed in the first place as it’s only a tiny cameo. 

Who knows, it might happen in the future, and the sister might drop a proper duet together. Though, it’s unlikely to come in the form of a rap hit.

Popular TikTok group ‘Sway House’ has long been under public scrutiny for their physical appearance, with many critics accusing the influencers of using steroids to achieve their gains — and now, the entire group has spoken out about the rumors.

The Sway House is comprised of a slew of top-tier content creators, including the likes of Bryce Hall, Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson, and Blake Gray, who boast millions of followers between them across multiple social media platforms.

On February 23, the group got together to address popular rumors and speculation about them, using questions specifically provided by their own fans via Twitter.

One of the more popular assumptions about these TikTokers has been spread around many times before, which claims that the group collectively takes steroids and other such enhancers to boost their workout results.

While Bryce Hall has admitted to steroid use before, the entire group had yet to speak on the issue as a whole, which came up during their February “assumptions” video.

“I guess I can’t really say anything on this one,” Hall laughed.

“Griffin takes like, fake steroids though,” Richards joked. “He’s not even a full committer!”

“Oh yeah, he gets ‘test boosters,’” Hall replied. “Just shoot it up in the butt!”

“Dude, I literally only take vitamins!” Griffin retorted. “They help increase your natural testosterone levels!”

The jokes against Griffin come as a humorous turn of the tables, after Tayler Holder grilled Bryce Hall about his own purported steroid use in December. During their humorous Q & A session, Hall did admit that he had used steroids in the past, but had since gone back to being “all natty.”

“Yes, I did,” Hall laughed. “So do so many other people, so f**k you guys! More plates, more dates. You guys were correct!”

“Let me tell you, I’m not encouraging any of my viewers to do it,” he added. “I just wanted to get big. I’m off now, I’m all natty now. Fully.”

(Topic starts at 1:50)

While the accusations of steroid use among the rest of the group remain as mere allegations, it’s important for fans to remember that their favorite influencers likely have a slew of resources at their disposal to obtain such bodies, and that being completely shredded isn’t a totally realistic body goal to set for everyone.
