There is no denying that Addison Rae is a Tiktok super star turned celebrity. With the price of fame, there is always a cost.
Addison Rae’s bubbly personality and dance skills landed her over seventy million Tiktok fans, and she has over thirty five million Instagram followers. With her success coming at a rapid pace, the social media super star receives negative comments from trolls on a daily basis.
Addison Rae discussed comparison culture and trolling on social media. ” “I’ve dealt a lot with online hate and social media drama, with people that are very opinionated and don’t want people to be happy,” Addison told Glamour UK.
“People see people’s successes sometimes and wish it was them, which is totally understandable. I’ve even been there in my life too, where I’m like, ‘I wish I had this or I wish I had what she had.’ That brings you envy sometimes and I would bring that anger out onto them, which has never been a fulfilling thing. I’ve realised you have to be happy for people”- Addison Rae, Glamour UK.
Before Rae started uploading videos on Tiktok, she was a student at Louisiana State University. Rae was studying broadcast journalism, and she decided to try out for the dance team. During her senior year of high school, she was denied from becoming a LSU dancer. After feeling hopeless, she decided to post videos on Tiktok in 2019. “I thought I had to give up on all my dreams, but about four to five months later I started social media and TikTok. All of a sudden – out of nowhere – I was posting all the time and getting likes, views and followers.”
Thanks to Tiktok, Addison Rae has landed opportunities others would dream of. Addison Rae stars in He’s All That, the remake of She’s All That. In addition, Rae has also founded her own beauty brand, Item Beauty.
“I remember that I got where I am today, and that I should take every opportunity I can to just accomplish everything that I dreamed of.”
