IRL streamer instantly regrets agreeing to eat disgusting giant bug

Twitch star Kiaraakitty is well-known for her IRL travel streams, where she embraces other cultures. Her trip to Bangkok, Thailand, was no exception, though she was left looking disgusted after her first bite of a giant bug.

For her part, Kiara had been very open-minded to trying new foods while on her trip, including a scorpion that she barely managed to eat despite a look of sheer disgust on her face with every bite.

On November 18, the streamer was walking around a market area and wanted to try eating a new bug for the first time.

“Very big and juicy,” she told her stream while she held up the insect for inspection.

Before she could pop the bug into her mouth, Kiara’s friend showed up and was shocked that she decided to purchase the gross-looking food item. “You actually decided to get that?” she asked.

“I’m gonna try this one,” she replied and took a big bite while her friend stared on with her mouth gasped wide in disbelief.

While the brave Kiara seemed confident that she would enjoy eating the insect, she immediately appeared to dislike the taste. Meanwhile, the people she bought the creature from just looked on with awkward grins on their faces.

Eventually, one of the two salesmen decided to help the young streamer out by taking the wings off the bug.

“Oh, you weren’t meant to eat the wings,” her friend observed. Kiara, now with her food correctly prepared, spit the winged insect into a napkin before taking a bite of the wingless snack.

On the second go, the traveler enjoyed the ‘treat’ and said it reminded her of the taste of prawn skin.

“I was pretty disturbed by it,” Kiara’s friend admitted. “The inside alone.”

Bugs as food are prevalent in Thailand and as such, bred for consumption. Local food markets often feature edible bug tables where vendors sell their products.

Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
