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.

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.

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
