TikTok Content Creators
Content creators like Addison Rae and Chase Hudson and Celebrities like Lili Reinhart and Elizabeth Warren, everyone hopped on some dance craze trend. During the lockdown, people started making different trends like after watching the Tiger King documentary, a trend was started where people dressed up as real-life persons from doc and they danced a few rehearsed steps.
People get famous on TikTok when they make a trend, choreograph some dance moves, then celebrities and other users follow it and this is how trends are made. This way celebrities can gain more TikTok Likes and dance creators more TikTok Followers. TikTok also helped many singers like Lil Nas X and Doja Cat to promote their songs when celebrities made clips on them and their fans followed them. This helped Lil Nas X redefine the country music industry.
