In case you missed it, Dixie D'Amelio recently invited Vogue into her home to film their '24 Hours With Series' which, you guessed it, meant following the TikTok star around for a day to document everything she does.

This involved the 19-year-old making breakfast, going to a fitting with Valentino, baking with her boyfriend of four months Noah Beck and also popping into the recording studio.

As well as getting a sneak peek into her day-to-day life, at one point Dixie also opened up about her decision to not attend university.

"I fully got into college of August of 2019 and I decided not to go just because travelling back and forth was going to be a lot. And I was also really scared because I saw someone make a TikTok saying that they would play my songs at a frat party and that's really what, like, turned me away from going to school because I don't think I could handle that level of embarrassment."

But after watching the video, some people called her out for her 'privileged' comments. "I’m sorry what," one simply wrote, while another commented, "She honestly is so privileged it’s embarrassing."

"Imagine being privileged enough to simply refuse to go to college because you think your song is gonna be played at a party," said a third.

And, "Imagine getting into college AND having the money to pay for it, but not going because someone will play your song at a party."

But others came to Dixie's defence, with another pointing out, "She isn’t embarrassed of HER song but more embarrassed of people playing it out loud. Y’all find something wrong every chance you get." While a second said it was "sad" she didn't want to attend university because "kids threatened to embarrass her".

It comes after Dixie and her sister Charli faced a backlash when they were spotted on holiday with several other TikTok influencers in the Bahamas despite Los Angeles where the sisters live being under a stay-at-home order. And, shortly before that, the sisters also came under fire from fans over a family YouTube video.
