TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio has delighted fans by announcing in a YouTube video that she’d be featuring in Jennifer Lopez’s new music video, sharing the filming process with her fans and even the FaceTime between her and JLo.

Since Charli D’Amelio shot to international fame on viral video app TikTok, gaining 88 million followers within the space of just over a year, she has by no means been short of incredible opportunities.

She even partnered up with Dunkin’ Donuts to make her iconic iced coffee part of the set menu, appropriately called ‘The Charli,’ a cold brew coffee with whole milk and three pumps of caramel swirl. She also teamed up with Morphe for a makeup line with her TikTok star sister Dixie.

And, of course, she’s not short of celebrity interaction. Charli has said on multiple occasions that her biggest dream was to dance with Jennifer Lopez, and that dream became a reality in February when Charli starred in a TikTok with Jennifer dancing to her hit song ‘On the Floor’ as part of her Super Bowl challenge.

@jloSoooo much fun doing the ##JLoSuperBowlChallenge with @charlidamelio !!!!! See you all tomorrow at ##SuperBowlLIV ?❤️♬ original sound – JLO

Clearly JLo loved Charli as much as Charli loves her, as she invited her to perform in her new music video for the song ‘Pa’Ti,’ which Charli revealed in a September 24 vlog.

She took fans with her via her vlog to the video set, where Charli said she filmed “two scenes” and then showed off her incredible dancing in front of a green screen, looking delighted to be a part of a production for her favorite star.

Things only got better when the director yelled cut, and Charli was told there was someone on the phone for her, only for it to be Jennifer Lopez herself. “How’s it going, are they treating you good?” she asked the TikTok star.

Charli insisted that everyone was amazing, but Jennifer still jokingly threatened to “beat anybody up if they don’t treat you good.” She goes on to say that “I really love that you’re doing this for us. You are a sweetheart, you’re adorable,” and even tells Charli that her young daughters love her, saying things like “I love her more everyday.”

The call ends with Charli sweetly thanking Jennifer for being able to be a part of the video, looking in disbelief that she was able to have another chat with her idol.

The music video for ‘Pa’Ti’ is now live on JLo’s YouTube channel, having gained over 1 million views within 13 hours, with Charli featuring at both the start and the end.


TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
