TikTok creator houses are on the rise. You know the Hype House, Sway House, and Clubhouse, now meet the Shluv House, the latest collective comprised of even more popular Tiktokkers including Spencer X and Micheal Le.

The Shluv gang moved into their massive LA house in the first week of May. Here’s what you need to know.

Who is in the Shluv house?

According to their social media, it looks as though current members probably include: Spencer X, Michael “Just Maiko” Le (its founder), Jonathan Le, Javier Romero, Matthew Gonzalez, Michael Uy, Derek “asapgoku” Graham, and couple Jon Klaasen and Elyssa Joy.

Spencer X is currently the 8th most followed creator on TikTok with 33 million followers. Other popular members include Michael Le who has 25.1 million followers, Jon Klaasen who has 13.7 million followers, and Elyssa Joy who has 8.3 million followers.

Who are Spencer X and Micheal Le?

Spencer X is a seriously talented beatboxer, and lots of their videos as a collective involve dancing to Spencer’s tracks. Michael Le and his little brother Jonathan have made a big name for themselves on TikTok for their dance moves, but the group often involves Jonathan in comedy skits.

Jonathan Klaasen is a musician well known for his appearance on the X Factor in 2013. The other members are multi-talented dancers, photographers, and pranksters.

When did the Shluv House start?

The Shluv Gang has been around for much longer than the house. It is essentially the collective name for fans and the group of creators surrounding Michael Le. Merchandise for the group was launched as “Shluv Clothing” in March this year.

Micheal Le announced the Shluv House on his social media just after they moved in, in May. He said: “I now introduce to you the Shluv house. This is the biggest accomplishment of my life that’s happened so far. words cannot express how happy and how thankful I am because of social media, my family, my friends, and all my fans.

“This house is the result of all my hard work, dedication to my dreams, and perseverance through every single obstacle that was thrown my way. I can’t wait to show you guys what I have planned for this new chapter of my life, but all I can say, for now, is thank you”

The Shluv house joins other major TikTok content houses in Los Angeles including the Hype House, Sway House, and Clubhouse. The Hype House is the most high-profile with popular Tiktokkers such as Chase Hudson and Addison Rae, but their ranks are changing with lots of new faces joining and some old faces leaving.

Sway House has also had two critical members leave, and there are rumours of the Hype House and Sway House joining forces to create the “Swype House”.


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
