Teens can't stop talking about TikTok & # 39; s 15-year-old & # 39; casual celebrity & # 39; Charli D & # 39; amelio
There is said to be no such thing as a success from one day to the next, but a dance lover from Connecticut appears to be the exception to that rule.
Charli D & # 39; amelio, 15, is the breakout star of video platform TikTok, which has gathered more than five million followers on the app within a few months – turning teenagers across the country into something she admits is incredibly overwhelming, both positive and negative.
While her family seems to wrap their head around her apparently viral success, even if they host their first meet-and-greet last weekend, they are also careful to make sure that Charli – not to mention her dancing and her looks – does not just become food for teenagers who are obsessed with social media.
Normal teenager: Charli D & # 39; amelio, 15, became virtually one of Gen Z's most prominent TikTok stars
Bedroom: since June her dance videos, mostly recorded in her bedroom in Connecticut, have led to more than five million people
Speak against MEL Magazine Charli agreed in her first published interview that the sudden attention is getting used to.
Model material: with 700,000 followers on Instagram, Charli will soon be able to participate in the influencer game with sponsored content
& # 39; It's very weird, especially if it's (from) older people, & # 39; she confessed.
& # 39; Both girls and boys comment on the appearance of a 15-year-old and her body shape and how she looks. & # 39;
And, as is to be expected, the sudden glare of the spotlight that has emerged from a casual nocturnal celebrity is quite the double-edged sword.
Charli told the pop culture magazine for men that the negativity both online and offline & # 39; overwhelming & # 39; was – especially at school.
Her classmates take her in, catch her by surprise and film her every movement to share with each other.
& # 39; It's internet, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Everything comes around, you know. As I really would not see that. & # 39;
With more than 300 videos on her feed, some of which can receive no less than 35 million views per pop, Charli & # 39; s USP is her dancing.
Although she is an accomplished, award-winning dancer on stage, her TikTok clips are more goofy, non-choreographed routines filmed in her bedroom.
This has led to criticism that her skills & # 39; basic & # 39; but her Instagram account shows her bravery on stage.
Polarization: with her growing fame, the 15-year-old has become the subject of chatter among teenagers talking about her & # 39; hype & # 39; to debate
Dancer: Although her TikTok routines are relatively simple and cuff-free, Charli is an experienced stage dancer, left and right
& # 39; I don't know what else to say about that, & # 39; Charli said about the criticism that her dancing on TikTok is overrated.
& # 39; I know that all my years of training does not help with TikTok dancing, but I know that TikTok dancing is fun. & # 39;
Fun: the aspiring professional dancer said she would not stop sharing her routines online just because of the annoying trolls
Her own ambitions are to become a dancer, such as how her idol Jennifer Lopez started.
& # 39; Like so many people do. Just not everyone posts it. And whatever I did, I think, worked.
& # 39; I become self-aware and I become insecure, just like everyone else, but I try not to show that. It will make them feel like they won, and I won't let them feel that way, & she said.
So far, Charli does not seem to generate any income with its platform with sponsored content.
The TikTok influencer involvement and income of Influencer Marketing Hub calculator predicts that with its current engagement activity, Charli could potentially earn $ 2,056 – $ 3,427 per post.
Alessandro Bogliari, TikTok expert and CEO of The Influencer Marketing Factory told DailyMail.com: & # 39; This is just the early age for TikTok and there is no real pricing model for influencers yet, but in general someone with five million followers could earn up to $ 1500 for a single video asset, depending on their location and some other factors.
& # 39; It's a fraction of what a YouTuber or Instagrammer with the same following is currently paying, but that's normal. The same happened in the early stage of influencers on Instagram. & # 39;
In other words, if Charli continues to expand her presence on social media like she does, the teen can reach tens of thousands by mail – provided that TikTok continues to grow to the same staggering heights as Instagram and YouTube have done.
Cruel: Charli, in the photo, responds to cruel comments on her account that say: & # 39; I don't understand the hype & # 39;
Views: Up to 35 million people can view one of Charli & # 39; s dance clips, as she dominates the TikTok home page
Baby Ariel, on the other hand, is largely regarded as the most famous TikTok star in the app's one-year history.
The 19-year-old personality on social media has 29.9 million followers and already has a reported capital of $ 1 million.
Although her feed may polarize, her fame has spread throughout the country.
One female user posted on twitter: & # 39; Ok but real question, thoughts about that charli d & # 39; amelio girl who has the hype rn? & # 39;
Another said: I think the fact that so many 10-year-old boys persuaded their mothers to pay $ 100 to meet charli d & # 39; amelio is hilarious. & # 39;
Teens told MEL things like: & # 39; There are guys in my class who can't physically stop talking about her & # 39; and & # 39; She is so over hyped. Calmly the obsession is illegal; she is 15. & # 39;
Obsessed: teenagers across the country are & # 39; obsessed & # 39; by Charli and & # 39; can't stop talking about her & # 39;
Meet-and-greet: A rare opportunity to meet Charli took place during the weekend, with teenagers shooting up to $ 100 to see her in real life
& # 39; Identify boys from different states to ask her if she is going to dance like with them or going on a date, & # 39; another added.
On November 17, the D & # 39; amelio family organized a meet-and-greet (hence the aforementioned 10-year-old boys posing for photos & # 39; s).
Exclusive tweens and teens who pay $ 20 or $ 100 for the & # 39; VIP experience & # 39 ;, can not only meet Charli, but the higher price, they even take a 10-second TikTok with her.
After the price of tickets had caused a furore online, Charli clarified that the money would be donated to a good cause.
In addition to Charli's profile, her mother Heidi, father Marc and sister Dixie also come in the spotlight.

Parents: Teenage mother Heidi, left, and dad Marc, right, often also appear in her videos.
Model Dixie, 18, has nearly one million followers on TikTok and another 179,000 on Instagram for a good measure.
Mother Heidi simply said that she and her husband & # 39; good & # 39; be familiar with if it is what their daughters want.
& # 39; We don't need this as a family. Things are fine without us, and we are fine if they want to do that … Marc and I are there to ensure that they are emotionally good and that they are supported. & # 39;
