The 15-year-old Charli D’Amelio is already a top internet celebrity, gaining over 38 million followers on TikTok — but the youngster revealed that fame isn’t all sunshine and roses.

Charli was featured in a collaboration with YouTube star and James Charles on March 20, as the makeup mogul gave the TikToker a colorful makeover while asking a series of questions about her rise to fame.

One of Charles’ questions was about her transition from normal student to becoming an internet superstar — and Charli’s answer was surprisingly harrowing.

Charli D’Amelio is one of TikTok’s top content creators – but her fast track to fame came with some surprising consequences.

The TikTok creator admitted that she experienced a slew of unique difficulties after going viral, explaining that critics will accuse her of bad behavior or claim that she stopped talking to them once she became famous.

“Some people will try and go live and try to talk bad about me,” she revealed. “Try to make me look like a person I’m not, in a bad way.”

It’s weird seeing how people switch up. Or people will say, ‘You cut me off, you stopped talking to me.’ We haven’t been friends for four years!”

That’s not the most concerning consequence of her fame either; D’Amelio also revealed the shocking lengths fans will go to in order to meet her, claiming that they will even follow her into the bathroom to get a photo.

“I’ve had people come in the bathroom with me, like try to get in the stall with me,” she continued. “…people post things, and then everyone comes to wherever I am.”

The star also revealed that a few fans pretended to members of her family to get a chance of seeing her at her cousin’s wedding, and was even yelled at by a fan’s mother to the point of tears after asking to eat her meal before snapping a photo.

“That’s just like, annoying, because there are some things where I want my privacy,” she admitted. “It was my cousin’s wedding with my family, That was like, really, really weird.”

While D’Amelio is on the fast track to become TikTok’s most-followed account, her extremely quick jump to internet fame came with some unintended consequences from fans who don’t respect personal boundaries.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
