TikTok superstar Charli D’Amelio says she got to experience her lifelong dream at the Superbowl LIV, as she danced with Jennifer Lopez, and revealed it’s her dream job in the future too.

D’Amelio, who boasts over 23 million followers on TikTok and growing fast, is best known for her dancing videos. Her fame was cemented as she appeared alongside a host of other celebrities in a Superbowl commercial.

But her involvement at the Superbowl didn’t end there, as even more exciting for the 15-year-old was the chance to fulfill one of her biggest dreams; dancing with J-Lo.

Charli’s TikTok videos get millions of views and likes.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Charli explains that her viral video of dancing with J-Lo, doing the ‘JLoSuperbowlChallenge’ was the culmination of her plan to finally meet her idol.

The video amassed 4 million likes on her channel, and although she actually forgot the moves at first due to nerves, she quickly caught back up with the professionals.

When asked what her dream job is, D’Amelio said. “I obviously want to be a dancer in some way, because that’s been my dream forever, dancing with J-Lo, doing something similar to what J-Lo does, maybe. There are so many opportunities that are being presented to me right now, I just want to try everything and see what works.”

Whatever she plans on doing, her massive following on TikTok has already ensured her something to fall back on. The app itself has gone from strength to strength after it took over from Musical.ly.

She’s not yet the most followed account on the platform – that title goes to Loren Gray with over 38 million – but at the rate she is gaining new followers, Charli is set to take that number one spot.

In 30 days between January 6 and February 5, Charli D’Amelio has gained a whopping 7.3 million followers on TikTok, the fastest on the platform. Her sister, Dixie, is also TikTok famous, with 9 million followers of her own.

This rapidly increasing popularity is providing her opportunities such as that at the Superbowl, and it sounds like there is a lot more in the pipeline to come. At only 15, the future is very bright for this dance fanatic and social media starlet.

Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
