Dixie D’Amelio is more than a TikTok superstar — she’s also a singer, having released her first single last month, and now, she’s scored a huge record deal with a major label in the industry.

Dixie D’Amelio turned heads — and inspired more than a few good-natured memes — across the internet upon the release of her debut single ‘Be Happy’ on July 1, showing off an impressive singing voice as scouted out by YouTuber James Charles.

However, it seems the TikToker has a bright future in the music world outside of her single song, having signed to major record label Hitco on August 7.

D’Amelio broke the news with an enthusiastic Instagram photo the same day, posing with the famous American record label exec ‘LA Reid.’

“Excited to announce that I have joined the Hitco music family,” D’Amelio wrote. “Thank you LA Reid!”

“So excited to welcome Dixie D’Amelio into the Hitco music family,” Reid wrote in a similar post. “Special thank you to the D’Amelio family and team!”

This move comes after massive her joint collaboration alongside sister Charli D’Amelio for makeup brand Morphe, with the sisters unveiling a unique product line that reflects their own personal “no makeup, makeup” style.

That’s not all; Dixie has also graduated from high school in the midst of these major life developments. How many of us can say we were so successful at 18 years old?

“In my five years of high school, my entire life changed twice, and I’m so grateful for each of these experiences, even though at the time I would’ve wished for nothing more than to not be here,” Dixie wrote in an Instagram post. “I’m so proud of myself and all of the ways I persevered through so many different challenges.”

ok so I know I kind of made a general post yesterday, but honestly getting through high school is one of the hardest challenge but biggest accomplishment in my life. The ups and downs made me who I am right now and made me appreciate every single day. In my five years of high school, my entire life changed twice and I’m so grateful for each of these experiences even though at the time I would’ve wished for nothing more than to not be here. i’m so proud of myself and all of the ways I persevered through so many different challenges. Life seems so easy now and so possible. I’m so grateful for all of the people I met along the way even if we no longer talk because that experience just helped me grow and learn even more. thank you all so much for supporting me and watching me continue to grow up right in front of you. I have so much love for every single person I meet and who I cross paths with, thank y’all for everything.? also photos by @bryant

Other TikTokers have congratulated Dixie on her success, including Addison Rae, the platform’s second-most-followed creator and its highest-earning user.

With so much happening for the D’Amelio sisters, there’s no telling what’s in store for the net’s most popular duo in the future.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
