The rising star and major TikToker Charli D’Amelio recently appeared as a guest on her sister’s show, The Early Late Night Show With Dixie D’Amelio. Charli revealed why she’s feeling so overwhelmed with her career and how she’s looking to venture out in other fields. Moreover, the sisters discussed why Charli doesn’t think TikTok is as fun and welcoming a platform that it used to be.
Charli D’Amelio has received brutal criticism over the years
The young dancer received millions of followers and fans on TikTok. She became the most followed TikTok star and gained a huge fan base. Although she received a lot of brand deals and sponsorships, D’Amelio was also subject to a lot of criticism by the world. She became the subject of brutal internet hate that was often unnecessary. As a result, Charli D’Amelio became disheartened with the TikTok platform.
“I feel like when you have opportunities that are so amazing, but an entire world of critiques for your every move, it’s very difficult to find enjoyment in things that are being torn down so much. It’s extremely difficult to want to continue doing something that people say how much they hate.”
Furthermore, another reason she doesn’t like the TikTok community anymore is because it’s become quite comeptitive and a toxic place.
Many of the people she thought were her closest friends ended up leaving her the minute they got what they wanted: a collaboration with the most followed TikTok star.
It doesn’t feel like it used to. Like there was collaboration and fun and everyone was friends. And now everyone’s trying to beat each other. And that doesn’t make sense to me and that’s not why I started. I started TikTok because it was fun making dance videos with my friends and now it’s turned into this whole competition.
Charli D’Amelio added that now people only want to collaborate or talk when it’s convenient for them. Moreover, she added that everyone was quite close with each other and now everything has quickly changed in her opinion. Plus, she thinks that in her experience, she’s been left in the dust as she was trying to be there for everyone.
To this, Dixie D’Amelio added that a lot of people try to use Charli D’Amelio as she’s the biggest on the TikTok app. But in the end as they realize they can’t do that with Charli, they leave. Both the sisters agreed that it’s really hard to trust someone and truly know if they have the right intentions. Dixie shared that it’s only family you could fully trust.
The D’Amelio sister is going to look for other places to shine
Charli D’Amelio also shared in the interview that she’s trying to figure out what she wants to associate and explore all areas and see what fits best for her:
“There’s a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes that not everyone gets to see. Everyone kind of already has their thing, and I haven’t found mine yet.”
