Let’s be realistic: we all want to be in Charli D’Amelio’s place right now because she is undoubtedly living her best life. No, not because she has millions of subscribers on TikTok and will soon be playing in her very first film. That’s because the social media sensation has just received a surprise from Justin Bieber, who sneaked into his DMs while hosting a live chat.
Who is Charli D’Amelio?
If you find yourself browsing TikTok often from time to time, chances are you’ve come across at least one of Amelio’s famous dance videos.
The 16-year-old Connecticut native became famous in the summer of 2019 when she downloaded a TikTok of her doing the now viral Renegade dance.
Since then, D’Amelio has shared thousands of dance videos on his TikTok channel and currently has 57 million followers on the platform – as well as 18.5 Instagram followers and 4 million YouTube subscribers.

The singer recruited D’Amelio to help him in a special project
Before assuming that Bieber slipped into Amelio’s DM for some obscure reason, we can assure you that their conversation did not go that way.
On May 18, the viral sensation was hosting an Instagram Live video when the singer entered the chat, commenting: “Please check your MDs when you’re done, thank you.”
Naturally, D’Amelio panicked. “It’s a joke,” she said in disbelief. “It’s a joke. It was a joke. Please tell me that someone made a screenshot.”
After realizing that Bieber’s comment was actually real (thanks to a fan who quickly captured the comment), the TikTok star responded to the singer by saying that she would hold her hand when she finished her video.
Although fans were initially left in the dark about what D’Amelio and Bieber talked about when she finished recording, a recent video released by the singer seemed to clarify why he slipped into his DMs.
As a birthday present for her 12-year-old sister Jazzy, Bieber created a video compilation featuring clips of her famous friends wishing her a “happy birthday”.
The now deleted video included screams from Kylie Jenner, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Snoop Dogg, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Zendaya, Addison Rae and D’Amelio – all of Jazzy’s favorite celebrities.
The video stayed on the crooner “Yummy” for a few hours before deleting it early on May 19.
Fingers crossed for more collaborations Bieber and D’Amelio TikTok
While we don’t know the exact details of Bieber and D’Amio’s DM conversation, we feel they didn’t just talk about his little sister’s birthday video.
Superstars could have discussed a potential future collaboration with TikTok – especially since Bieber recently made epic 30-second dance videos.
In April, he released several videos of him dancing to his songs and doing viral challenges with loved ones while quarantining. He even sought to make his song “Come Around Me” a new dance challenge on the video sharing app.
Since D’Amelio is the most followed person on TikTok, it is right that these two join forces and collaborate on a dance video in the future. Hopefully, once this house arrest warrant is lifted, Bieber and D’Amelio can make it happen, but we’ll just have to wait and see if it happens.
