TikTok has been sweeping the globe, massively growing in popularity with many of its stars amassing tens of millions of followers for their content.

Despite being seen as the face of TikTok for quite some time, Charli only surpassed fellow creator Loren Gray in follower count on March 25 and revealed how she reacted to the news in an interview with ET.

To the surprise of many, she revealed that, although she normally celebrates her biggest milestones, she had not yet taken the time to reflect on officially becoming the biggest TikTok star.

“We celebrate almost every milestone that I hit pretty well but I don't think we celebrated number one,” she shared.

Topic starts at 3:40 for mobile users.

She then revealed her reasoning for the lack of celebration, explaining that she was not even aware of when it happened, “I think I was sleeping when it happened, it literally must have happened at like four in the morning.”

As it stands Charli D’Amelio remains at the top of TikTok with over 46 million followers and has been trying to use her platform for good.

“It feels awesome, but I think it's truly about just being able to have the platform that I have to spread messages like this,” she added when asked about her newly found influence.

Following her latest achievement, Charli has released a new dance encouraging all of her fans to stick to the social distancing guidelines during the ongoing health crisis.

Charli is also set to be the first creator on TikTok to reach the 50 million milestone, and with the rate that her fanbase is growing, it is quite likely to happen within the coming days.
