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.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
