PopularFortnite in late August.

While Pokimane often runs into younger players in Duos and Squads, this particular interaction took an unexpected turn, after the streamer was taken aback by her partner’s upbeat and positive attitude.

Although young, the player explained that he usually gets games with newbies who “have no idea what they’re doing,” and helps them to get their first Dub – a fact that left Pokimane pleasantly surprised.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane is one of Twitch’s most popular female content creators, boasting over three million followers on the platform.

“I usually come on just to make sure people are having a good day and feeling good about themselves,” the player, named “Clutch Grind” said. “Making sure they’re up and not down.”

“That’s so nice,” Anys responded. “How are you real?”

That wasn’t the end of their conversation, by far: Grind’s mother soon walked past his setup, who he excitedly told that he was in a game with Pokimane.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane is known for her hilarious encounters with fans, some of whom are younger than your average gamer.

This gave the streamer a unique idea, who asked Grind to put his mother on the mic so she could compliment her for raising her son so well.

“I just wanted to tell her that she did a good job raising you,” Pokimane said, which Grind quickly relayed to his mom.

Anys smiled as his mom gave an audible “awww” on the other end of the mic, with Grind saying, “She says thank you” in response to her compliment.

While this wholesome interaction will have fans smiling from ear to ear, not all of Pokimane’s run-ins with young fans are pleasant: in fact, one Fortnite player made sexually explicit comments toward the streamer in summer 2018, later apologizing for the incident in a YouTube video.

“Bro, you’re twelve,” Anys replied in shock after the youngster asked if she was “down to sixty-nine.” “…you can’t be talking like that.”

Despite this incident, Pokiman’s stream is generally full of more wholesome antics, which, thanks to her recent foray into the horror game genre, are guaranteed to give fans a good laugh.


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.
