Meet a teen making Shillings 1.5 million a day

Published

on

Lip-synching Alicia Breuer is living the Teenage Dream after her TikTok take-off of Katy Perry turned her into a global sensation.

Now, at just 17, she has 740,000 followers, plus another 200,000 on Instagram and earns a whopping £10,000 a day.

And, to use another Katy hit, that’s plenty of reasons to Smile.

A-level student Alicia rakes in the money by promoting fashion and cosmetic brands including Lancome, Urban Outfitters, Boohoo, Benefit, Fenty Beauty and Bershka. She is so successful that plans to study for a psychology degree have been shelved.

Alicia only turned to TikTok a year ago while off school and bored during the first lockdown.

She said: “It gave me something to do during the pandemic when I wasn’t studying for my A-levels.

“If I’m now able to make £10,000 some days, I’m going to focus on my videos – there’s no point going to university.”

Alicia posted her first videos on TikTok last June. She was quickly spotted by a leading digital talent manager and the money started to roll in. Alicia is now earning way more than her parents, ­independent financial advisers Frank and Tammy, who are in their 50s.

Tammy, from Milton Keynes, Bucks, said: “I see my job as keeping Alicia grounded a bit. She’s very ­excited by what’s happening, and so are we.”

Alicia also makes “transitions” – videos which involve a blink-of-the-eye outfit change.

As well as Katy, she mimes to the likes of Drake, Justin Timberlake, the Sugababes and the Bee Gees.

She added: “The majority of my videos are lip syncing to music.

“None of them take too long. Even a transition video only takes an hour to make.

“I did a music promo for Alexa, where I lay in the plank position on my elbows and feet on the roof of a car, but it was removed because it was deemed dangerous if others tried it.

She added: “I wouldn’t say she’s hopeless on social media… she has downloaded my videos and gives them a look. She is still always on my back to do my school work. There’s always time for other things, though.

“My form tutor and psychology tutor also know all about what I’m doing and they have been really supportive, too.

“My two really close friends have also been really supportive, whereas I’d probably be jealous if the roles were reversed.”

But Alicia remains sensible about her new-found wealth. “Right now, I’m just saving,” she said. “I suppose if I won the lottery though I would buy a house – in a hot country!

“I’ve always wanted to have my own business and to travel, though, so this could become the perfect opportunity.”

Alicia has received plenty of positive comments for her TikTok videos – and, thankfully, very little trolling.

She said: “I’ll get questions about what hair products I use and how I wash my hair. I try to reply, but I can’t answer everyone now.”

Alicia broke into the big time last July after teaming up with Jessica Henig, founder of digital talent agency Unlocked branding.

Jessica said influencers are typically paid retainers by companies for posting. As well as showcasing other brands, Alicia could launch her own ranges or invest in firms she promotes.

Jessica explained: “Some of our earlier clients now make £100,000 in one day, but that could be a deal for six months of content that is paid on one day. We have signed about 25 girls.

“When we approached them they only had about 20,000 followers, but they’re now earning high wages and making real careers and a lot are not going to university. We help them build their own businesses, like a fashion or skincare brand.

Memphis rapper straight drop to turn himself as an alleged suspect in the murder of Young Dolph

Published

on

Police have been searching for a shooting suspect in the rapper’s death for months.

Young Dolph 36, was gunned down in his hometown of Memphis, Tenn., at Makeda’s Homemade Cookies shop, on November 17, 2021.

Authorities seem to have caught a break on Wednesday (Jan. 5).  When Memphis law enforcement announced they were searching for Johnson.

On Saturday (Jan. 8), Johnson broke his silence and said he was turning himself in.

Prior to his IG story post, he posted a video from ABC 24, in an effort to clear his name. In 2017, Johnson shot three people inside of Billy Hardwick’s bowling alley, located in Memphis, Tenn.

The judge handling the case, Chris Craft, said Johnson “immediately admitted to what he did.”

Judge Craft says Johnson was given probation after serving six months and released due to being so “well behaved.”

What Johnson didn’t post on his page was the full video, which notes that his probation was revoked a few months later, after being picked up for gun and drug possession. He was given a federal weapons charge.

Memphis rapper, Justin Johnson 23, whose Instagram handle is reportedly @straightdroppp, announced Saturday (Jan. 9) that he planned to turn himself into authorities, the report notes.

“Turning myself in Monday @201,” he wrote in a since-deleted post. “I’m innocent. I’ll be back sooner than you can blink.”
