Celebrities, they’re just like us. Don’t you just find it amusing (or other times..random) when your faves get recognized by international stars?
Celebrities fangirling over other celebrities?! It lowkey feels like a crossover in the cinematic universe of showbiz. Yet it also makes us wonder, do these stars randomly lurk on us? Fingers crossed, we do hope Beyoncé or Tom Hiddleston stumbled upon our profiles at some point. From a Filipino TikTok star that Rihanna and SZA follows to Bretman Rock hyping fellow vlogger Ivana Alawi, here are some of the most unexpected interactions we’ve seen between local and international celebrities so far.
NIANA GUERRERO AND THE KWON TWINS
Yo I wasnt expecting this Niana×Dony crossover pic.twitter.com/v7UxOQkncp— mm³⁵ 🌊 (@ygarights) April 11, 2021
Deukie… One of the kwon twins, YG dancer is following Niana Guerrero on Tiktok 🤯😭 LABAS MGA FILO-BLINKS!!! 🤍🤍🤍 pic.twitter.com/eL0QSugflH— jan 🙄✌🏻 (@bp__inurarea) April 8, 2021
The most followed TikTok star in the Philippines, Niana Guerrero, has been making waves locally and internationally, especially in the world of dance. So, it’s no surprise when Kwon Twins Don and Deukie, legendary dancers who worked with K-pop stars like Blackpink and 2NE1, did Niana’s now-viral Booty Wurk dance challenge and followed her after. Seeing how the 2011 hit song’s becoming a sensation on the platform, ads by T-Pain also started popping up. He knows her power.
IVANA ALAWI AND BRETMAN ROCK
— Ivana Alawi (@IvanaAlawi) March 9, 2020
As Jay-Z once said on his song with Beyoncé, Apesh*t, “what’s better than one billionaire? Two. “Specially if they’re from the same hue as you.” Okay, we might be exaggerating, but a million isn’t bad, too—especially if you’re Bretman Rock and Ivana Alawi who both have millions of followers! In true Da Baddest fashion, Bretman hypes up Ivana by saying “Bitch, I live for you !!”
OLIVIA RODRIGO AND CARDI B
This is so sweet .You doing sooo good for your age. Don’t let no toxic shit get to you and don’t let nobody restrict you from your voice. https://t.co/YeGarHPtWq— iamcardib (@iamcardib) April 21, 2021
Drivers License singer Olivia Rodrigo looks up to strong women, and rapper Cardi B, known for her unapologetic personality, is one of them. When Olivia shared in her Billboard interview that she looks up to Cardi because she gives her the courage to “sort of say whatever I want to say.” The rapper reciprocates the energy by saying “don’t let no toxic shit get to you, and don’t let nobody restrict you from your voice.” You’ve really won if your big sis in the industry is Cardi B.
ARGIE ROQUERO AND RIHANNA, SZA
nothing much going on just me thinking about Argie Roquero being besties with Rihanna and SZA pic.twitter.com/yHgAkZbV0Z— fjlv (@fjadevx) January 19, 2021
Anyone wanna switch lives with TikTok sensation Argie Roquero? Known for his gritty dance videos, he’s followed by celebrities Rihanna and SZA. Yes, Miss Fenty and Good Days! Badgal Riri even sent him some products and SZA liked his posts as well. We’re here for the Rihanna and Argie interaction, telling him that the background of his videos remind her a lot of her hometown, Barbados.
ELLA CRUZ AND LISA OF BLACKPINK
To be able to perform in front of Blackpink? We can only imagine how nerve-wracking that would’ve been for anyone, not just Blinks. When Ella Cruz flew all the way to Jakarta for Samsung’s fan event with Blackpink to represent the Philippines and busted some moves for a dance competition, Lisa Manoban herself was totally blown away! One of the luckiest Filipino Blinks indeed.
NADINE AND DRAG QUEENS NICKY DOLL, MANILA LUZON, JIGGLY CALIENTE
When the world saw Nadine’s now iconic birthday shoot where she depicted a scorpion, the internet went crazy. Including drag queens Nicky Doll (oh, to be re-shared on a queen’s stories?), Manila Luzon, and Jiggly Caliente leaving comments on photographer BJ Pascual’s photo. Knowing Nadine’s love for RuPaul’s Drag Race, we’re pretty sure she was shook, too. How to be noticed by drag queens? Be fierce like Nadine Lustre.
MAYMAY AND TYRA BANKS
Supermodel and ANTM creator Tyra Banks liking your photos and catwalk videos is the same energy as her reviewing your images after a shoot challenge on a regular episode along with her tough co-judges. We can’t really blame her, Maymay’s been known for her statuesque build, walking for Fashion Week in the Middle East, runway shows here in the Philippines, and posing for several high fashion magazines.
LIZA SOBERANO AND EVERYONE ELSE
Sandali! Magkakape din ako baka mapansin ako ni Bright Vachirawit.— Joken Billkin Metawin 🐰❤️ (@jokenkenAR) February 1, 2021
Liza Soberano, nilamon mo kami mga nakapila since March 2020.
Si Sarawat na pumipila sayo. pic.twitter.com/iBwsnOOD3Y
Nice to finally meet you, twin sister 🤣✌🏼— Luke I. Plowden (@thelukevoyage) January 28, 2021
Liza Soberano: personally asked by Charlie Puth if she’s going to his concert, followed by Justin Bieber and The Vamps, etc.— cheesypill (@asdfghjklyoona) December 11, 2019
also Liza Soberano: Omg tita!!!!!!! Yoona was my first kpop idol ever 😭😭😭
Im Yoona ya’ll 💁🏻♀️😂 pic.twitter.com/Yf2XlRtAnO
Truly, deeply, madly we ask: “How do we become Liza Soberano?” What water does she drink? What’s her secret? She might be a shameless Blackpink fangirl, but did you know Charlie Puth (he tweeted her!), Thai heartrobs Luke Plowden and Bright Vachirawit, Justin Bieber, James McVey, The Chainsmokers and Zedd were charmed by her timeless beauty?
LEA SALONGA AND TABLO OF EPIK HIGH
Always on the lookout for new music and exploring different genres, award-winning singer Lea Salonga noticed Tablo of K-hiphop group Epik High. TBH, This is the interaction we never knew we needed! Tablo fanboying over Lea is a MOOD. “I am a lifelong fan!!!,” he confesses. He even sang lines from Lea’s rendition of Reflection! Same, Tablo. Same.
