Ah yes, another day of TikTok wins.
You may remember Addison Rae's movie He's All That which came out last year as a play on the classic, She's All That, and received a raving 30% score on Rotten Tomatoes. The plot's description reads "An influencer who specializes in makeovers bets that she can transform an unpopular classmate into a prom king," and I can't see how that could ever be considered "bad."
One would perhaps think that a flop like that would mean you'd be excommunicated from Hollywood forever, but it's rather the opposite – Addison Rae has another movie on the way.
Despite there being no director attached as of yet, Rae confirmed that she's set to star in the upcoming movie Fashionista. Info as to who will act alongside the star is yet to be confirmed, but we're sure it will see a similar setup to her previous film. I'm pretty sure the movie will have something to do with an influencer trying to pursue fashion – but I could be wrong.
With an impressive 80 million TikTok followers and 40 million Instagram followers, it is no surprise that big streaming platforms such as Netflix, and major brands want to get a piece of Addison Rae's extreme exposure – especially as TikTok is becoming the go-to platform for advertising for Gen Z.
Whether you like it or not, all industries are being dominated by social media talent. We're seeing the front rows at fashion week occupied by influencers, major Hollywood movie roles being given to TikTok stars, and YouTube creators launching some of the most successful brands across beauty, apparel, and more.
There's yet plenty of more information to be revealed surrounding Fashionista, but you best believe it will be a wild ride that includes dancing, questionable acting, plenty of brand deals, and of course, TikTok.
