The end is near for a Twitch streamer has confined himself in a cage for 30 days in an effort to learn self-control and cure his ‘addictions’ to unhealthy food and drink.

Streaming on Twitch under the name ‘Johnny_Now’, he explains that his addictions to soda and food are ‘disgusting’, and hopes the 30 days spent in a cage will help cure his issues.

Additionally, he is writing a book, to document his progress and show others how being physically locked in a cage can be beneficial, calling it “Into the Cage: Freeing Yourself Within”.

He calls the process a “self-improvement program”, as he essentially lives like a pet hamster, and has an assistant help him with meals and exercise.

He later puts on oven mitts, and explains his goal is to “restrain myself from myself”, because he is “hopelessly addicted to food, hopelessly addicted to sugar.”

And it’s not just unhealthy food and drink, as he claims he “would put Bob Marley to shame” with some of his other vices.

*Update – Day 28* 

Johnny has confirmed that his time in the cage will end at 9pm ET on November 2nd, with a party in his flat surrounded by his friends.

The description of his stream explains in more detail that he has become “a prisoner to my own desires”, and so is turning to physically imprisoning himself.

As for his day job, he says that he is “changing careers”, and has one month before his “next adventure.”

You can keep up with Johnny’s progress on his Twitch channel, as he starts day one of his 30 day journey on October 4.

He also appeared on Rajj Patel’s dating show, although appears to have suffered a tough time with the girls.


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.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

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.
