On July 11, Twitch revealed that viral ‘Old Town Road’ rapper Lil Nas X and popular streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys would be headlining TwitchCon 2019’s Saturday night party – a fact further promoted by Nas’s surprise appearance on Pokimane’s Twitch stream that very same day.

Nas held a listening party for his EP (extended play) during the stream, titled ‘7,’ which he discussed with Pokimane throughout their surprise broadcast – as well as a few other topics, including esports giant 100 Thieves.

Esports organization 100 Thieves, headed by CEO Nadeshot, signed Twitter group and content team ‘The Mob’ to their ranks in mid-June, which consists of four creators Avalanche, Froste, Mako, and Classify.

Pokimane mentioned The Mob during her joint stream with Lil Nas X, after noticing the group typing in her chat – a development that Nas was visibly enthused by.

“We do?” Nas asked excitedly. “Yes! The Mob! I see you! …I see Avalanche.”

That wasn’t the only comment Nas made about the organization, either: he later went on to give The Mob a special shout out, which Pokimane claimed would make the group “cry” out of joy.

As it turns out, Pokimane wasn’t too far off in her prediction: the group popped off across Twitter shortly thereafter, retweeting a clip of Nas’s comment.

“YOU’RE AN ICON,” The Mob’s official Twitter wrote.

“Lil Nas X the f*cking GOAT,” Froste said of the moment.

“THE MOB IS GLOBAL BABY,” Mako echoed, posting a hilarious video featuring Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”

Even popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite player Valkyrae commented on the exchange, petitioning for the group to get verified in light of Nas’s recognition.

“K Lil Nas X just shoutout to the The Mob on Pokimane’s stream and I’m crying LOL,” she Tweeted. “Time to get the boys verified.”

Lil Nas X isn’t the only artist headlining TwitchCon’s Saturday party, either, although other names have yet to be released as of July 11. TwitchCon San Diego throws down from September 27 – 30, bringing with it a slew of action and some of the net’s top live streamers.

With one of the hottest musical artists in attendance, congoers can be sure that September will bring an unforgettable final weekend – especially for The Mob.


Charli D’Amelio reveals her weirdest makeup faux pas with Maddie Ziegler

Charli D’Amelio is more than TikTok’s queen bee; she’s also a competitive dancer, Dunkin’ Donuts connoisseur, and a full-blown makeup mogul, although she hasn’t always been the expert beauty guru she is today.

Charli revealed her collaboration with makeup giant Morphe in late July alongside older sister Dixie, bringing forth a slew of new products for fans to use and express their inner creativity.

That’s not all; Dixie has also had her face beat by none other than James Charles, who gave the TikToker a glamorous makeover that has scored well over 34 million views at the time of writing.

Considering her love for all things beauty and makeup, it comes as little surprise that Charli has a solid handle on new trends and products — but this wasn’t always the case, as she revealed during an October 27 video with fellow TikToker Maddie Ziegler.

During the video, in which the two gals gave fans a tutorial of their everyday makeup routine, Charli revealed that she often asks other names in the beauty space for help — most notably, James Charles.

In fact, Charli revealed that it was James who taught her that you have to dampen your beauty blender before applying any product to the face, a fact that appeared to catch Ziegler completely off-guard.

YouTuber James Charles collaborated with D’Amelio for a colorful makeup look, where the TikTok star opened up about the more difficult parts of being internet famous.

“I’ve been able to definitely ask a lot of questions from a lot of makeup artists that I’ve worked with,” she began. “It’s been everything. Like, I didn’t even know that I was supposed to wet my beauty blender until like, a few months ago.”

“James was like, ‘You know you’re supposed to wet that, right?’” she continued, drawing a shocked, “Really?” from Ziegler. “And I was like, ‘Ohhh.’ I call James all the time, and I’m like, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to do this. Can you help me?’”

Luckily for Charli, she’s surrounded by many kind and helpful creators who are available to help coach her through the ins and outs of makeup artistry — something that she claims she still “needs a little bit more help with.”

Both TikTokers were quick to note that everyone is on a different stage in their makeup journey, and no matter what part you’re at, it’s always a fun time experimenting with new looks and products.
