After she attended the Grammy Awards on Sunday, January 26, YouTuber Nikita Dragun clapped back at fan who questioned her attendance at the star-studded event and she claimed that she was actually paid to attend.

“She’s always killin’ it and serving looks, but we all know she [doesn’t need] to be there. She’s an influencer & not an music artist,” an Instagram user commented on a video of Nikita on the red carpet.

The beauty guru was quick to respond and told the commenter that she was “just doing her job.”

“They gave me a check to go, so honestly, I’m just doing my job,” she replied.
