She Has Danced Her Whole Life
"I actually had like the one video to go viral that kind of started it all," she told Jimmy Fallon. "It was a duet of this woman, Move With Joy, who makes 'easy dances' and it's her voice speaking. And you just copy whatever she says. So I edit the video that she did, and it was just like, step, step, hip, hip, stuff like that. Very simple. It was like eight moves and I posted it. I was on my way to some summer dance camp thing. It was about an hour and a half away from my house. So I had posted it before I left. And then I got in the car with my mom for an hour and a half. And my phone kept going off and I was like, mom, like, what's going on? Like, why are people liking this? This is so…I got 90 likes," she said with a laugh. "And then I was like, wait, what do I do now?" She continued: "Then my next video, I went back to of course, posting me dancing in my room or my bathroom by myself. I've been training and dancing since I was three, I actually started competing when I was five. Dance has been a part of my life since, ever. There's videos of me dancing…before I could walk."
She Has Anxiety
Charli can get anxiety and panic attacks that cause her to "cry for three days straight" until she feels like she's "not even Charli anymore." "I'm just this emotional person that doesn't function properly," she said to Avani Gregg on the Facebook Watch show "Here For It." "And I get into these, like, really, really bad places, and it's scary for me. I'm not myself, and I don't know what takes over, but it's just so much built up that I'm trying to get out all at once, and it's really tough. Especially when you feel like everyone has an invitation to say anything about you."
She Drinks Coffee
"Caffeine is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about coffee. But coffee also contains antioxidants and other active substances that may reduce internal inflammation and protect against disease, say nutrition experts from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine," says Hopkins Medicine. "Recent studies found that coffee drinkers are less likely to die from some of the leading causes of death in women: coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease."
She is Not Perfect 24/7
"Same as everyone else, I grew up watching people online and seeing how perfect they are and no one really gets into the, 'Hey, I'm not perfect. I have lots of things that I wanna work on to make myself feel better. And there's things that I still have to do.' I still have to, at the end of the day, go to school, I still have to eat three meals a day. I have to clean my room. I have to do chores around the house. Like it's the same thing. And I feel like having people know that I do those exact same things that they do is something that's a little bit comforting and it brings us together. And it's like, I don't wanna put myself on this pedestal that I am perfect 24/7, because I'm very much not. I have my bad days. I have my down days. I live a normal life at the end of the day, but I post on social media and I feel like so many people try to play themselves as perfect. And I just cannot be that person. I can't do that to myself. That's too difficult," she told ET.
She is Anti Cyber-Bullying
Charli and her sister Dixie "paired up with UNICEF for Internet Safety Day and talking about how cyber bullying really can affect people. And I feel like it's very important to raise awareness about that. Cause a lot of people don't like talking about the hate they get and I know, especially me, I get a lot," she told Fallon. "I'd rather use the platform that I have now to talk and raise awareness because yeah, ot hurts when I'm getting it [now], but it hurts the same when I was in school and someone would comment like, oh, you're ugly under my Instagram post. And I had like what? 40 followers? Yeah. It hurts the same. So I just feel like it's very, very important raising awareness about that and just showing everyone like it's okay to not be okay."
