Welcome to 2021! The news is still a mess, we’re still stuck in our houses, and yes, the celebrities are still at it on TikTok. 2020 was a banner year for everyone from the A-list to the D-list throwing their hat in the ‘Tok ring, and while some of them abandoned their accounts months ago, others are still cranking out the content, good or bad.
Just like last year, I’ll be bringing you the best of the best of the worst celebrity TikToks, so keep reading if you’re in the mood to be uncomfortable.

Okay really, why is Heidi Montag so obsessed with Addison Rae? After that weird New Year’s video where she went on and on about being proud of her, now she and Spencer are duetting one of Addison and Noah Beck’s dance videos? This feels incredibly thirsty to me, because most of the time people don’t really duet dance videos on TikTok, they just make their own video doing the dance. Also, this isn’t the main issue, but Heidi and Spencer are not good at the dance, and I feel very uncomfortable with Spencer in general.
@noahbeckhey @netflix can i pls be in one of your rom coms or something??♬ original sound – .
Speaking of Noah Beck, he’s busy trying to get noticed by Netflix. In this video, he lip-syncs one of Noah Centineo’s monologues from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, asking in the caption to be cast in one of Netflix’s rom-coms. I mean, ew. First of all, no one wants to see that (okay, someone probably does, but still no), and second, he already has millions of followers! He doesn’t need some dumb Netflix movie! I don’t think this will actually happen, but if it does, I might have to cancel my Netflix subscription.
@xtinequinn##stitch with @dianasaurusrex124 Even on vacation in the middle of the ocean I can’t pull him away 😅 ##fyp ##boyfriendwontcheat ##tellmehow ##cute ##funny♬ original sound – Christine Quinn
Christine Quinn, our favorite ice queen from Selling Sunset, seems to be done with the whole “quarantine” thing, not that she was ever doing that good of a job with it. She and her rich hubby are currently on vacation in Bora Bora without a care in the world, as their home city of Los Angeles is the literal COVID epicenter. Great! I hope it was worth it, because in this video Christine shows us that her man is busy playing computer games, even while they’re in a villa in the middle of the ocean. Stay home, people!
@scheanaFound this in my drafts and haven’t posted a TikTok in a really long time 😂 ##throwback ##savage
Scheana hasn’t posted on TikTok in several months, but she resurfaced this week with… an old draft of her attempt at the “Savage” dance. Nothing says you’re back like a weak try at a nine-month old trend! I love Scheana, and I would protect her at any cost, but she’s trying way too hard here, and this really should’ve stayed in the drafts. She should pivot to posting pregnancy content, because those videos would probably actually be really cute.
@heidimontag@addisonre congratulations girl! You killed ##2020♬ original sound – heidimontag
On New Year’s Eve, Heidi celebrated the end of 2020 by… congratulating Addison Rae on her successful year and calling her one of the biggest MVPs of the year. It’s unclear what the connection is here—this isn’t a Kourtney/Addison situation. I don’t think they actually know each other, and Addison didn’t even comment on Heidi’s video. Ouch.
@foodgodBE CAREFUL!! This combo of baby formula is CRAZY!!! @aidengod2 ##рекомендации ##fyp ##babyfood♬ original sound – foodgod
I had to double check, but no, this isn’t one of Kourtney and Scott’s kids. It’s just a random kid named Aiden with 600 TikTok followers whose name on the app is “I want to Be famous.” Can someone check on this kid? I’m not sure how Foodgod knows him, but either way, don’t feel great about this collab. Also, I never need to see videos of adults eating baby food.
@tanamongeaulolnew video in bio. should i make a storytime? hahahahahaha♬ original sound – Brandan Surdyk
Tana has a habit of sharing a lot of messy details about her personal life on social media, and she’s bringing that energy int0 2021. In this specific case, she’s feuding with her ex Bella Thorne, who released a song in December called “Stupid F*cking Bitch”, which is suspected to be a Tana diss track. Tana responded with a YouTube video where she reacted to the song. In this TikTok, she brags about “exposing” Bella, and says that for years, she was “too afraid to say something bc she’s evil.” Personally, I feel like these two need to hash things out in private.
@officialhowiemandel##duet with @charlidamelio ##homemade♬ Vroom Vroom – Gwendolyn_Takapu
Moving on from Tana’s dumb drama to the dancing boomer crowd, Howie Mandel is trying here to keep up with Charli D’Amelio, and it’s not going well. I’ll restate just as a 2021 reminder: if you can’t dance, no one is forcing you to dance on TikTok!
@jamescharleshappy new year♬ Kujo freestyle – LuXDistinct
2021 already wasn’t off to a great start, but things were only made worse by this video of James Charles pulling down his pants and repeatedly clenching his ass cheeks for the camera. Why??? Why must we see this? It’s one thing when James tries to twerk, but this is just unnecessary. Either learn to dance or just don’t!

As a dedicated follower of Bella Thorne’s crazy life, I don’t like to go too long without writing about her. Luckily, the drama in her world basically never stops, and here we are again. Bella Thorne and Mod Sun broke up earlier this year (the smell is still lingering), but her Instagram announcing the split made it seem like things ended on good terms. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Now Bella and Mod are feuding on Twitter, and this is one of the most important things that’s ever happened to me.
It all began on Tuesday night, when Mod Sun spoke to TooFab. He told them that things are going great for him and he’s 17 days sober, which is amazing, but then he kinda ruined the good vibes by talking about Bella Thorne. He said that a bunch of her stuff is still in his storage unit, and if she doesn’t come pick it up soon, he’s “gonna have a really, really poppin’ e-Bay site.” Yikes. He didn’t help matters when he posted the story on his own Twitter page:
Obviously joking but I’m kinda funny tho ? https://t.co/S3MmesPz9k
— new song out now (@MODSUN) May 29, 2019
Okay, so I don’t really doubt that he was joking. It would be pretty sh*tty of anyone to sell their ex’s stuff on eBay, and the fact that she’s famous would only make it worse. But that’s the exact reason why he shouldn’t even be joking about this. He knows that Bella Thorne is way more famous than him, so if he brings her up when talking to the tabloids, he’s bound to get some attention. It would be just as easy for him to say “no comment” and move on.
Bella Thorne had pretty much exactly the same thought, and brought some serious tea when she called Mod out on Twitter.
Awww looks like moddy really wants some press. #hungry also didn’t u call the cops on me when I wanted my computer? U pussy. https://t.co/dNjxmoKT2A
— BITCHIMBELLATHORNE (@bellathorne) May 29, 2019
In case she deletes this, here’s what the tweet says: “Awww looks like moddy really wants some press. #hungry also didn’t u call the cops on me when I wanted my computer? U pussy.”
Let’s all take a minute to process this beautiful, beautiful tweet. This is a savage move on Bella’s part, and I honestly love it. These two obviously both have their fair share of issues, but I will always support a woman calling out a man’s bullsh*t. But then Mod Sun responded, suggesting that Bella may have left some important details out of her clap back.
Well u came over uninvited. 24 hours after we broke up, Thru the backdoor. I wasn’t at the house to see what u were gonna take + to be honest bella…ur not the most trustworthy person. I’ve also told u 6 times since let’s SWAP each other’s stuff but which u refuse to gather mine
— new song out now (@MODSUN) May 29, 2019
Here’s the tweet, again, in case it gets deleted: “Well u came over uninvited. 24 hours after we broke up, Thru the backdoor. I wasn’t at the house to see what u were gonna take + to be honest bella…ur not the most trustworthy person. I’ve also told u 6 times since let’s SWAP each other’s stuff but which u refuse to gather mine”
Oof. I’m not going to try to figure out who’s telling the truth re: coming over to pick up the computer, but this is undeniably messy. It also makes me seriously question Bella’s breakup Instagram that made it seem like they were still friends, because generally speaking, friends don’t call the cops on each other. Or tweet about each other’s dirty laundry.
I’m also enjoying the mental image of Bella Thorne refusing to put together a bin of Mod Sun’s stuff at her h0use after him asking six times, especially when she could literally just pay someone to do it. I would sign up to be a Taskrabbit and fly all the way to LA if it meant I could spend a few hours in Bella Thorne’s house putting Mod Sun’s dirty underwear into a trash bag. SIGN ME UP.
Obviously, Bella and Mod have their issues that they need to work out, but doing things publicly on Twitter invites a lot of outside opinions. Enter: Tana Mongeau, YouTube’s resident thirst master general, and Bella’s ex-girlfriend. I’ll never 100% understand the dynamics between Tana, Mod, and Bella Thorne, but it’s 0% surprising that Tana felt the need to insert herself in this drama.
the love u have for eachother to take this to socials and press legit breaks my heart y’all
— ‘FACETIME’ MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW (@tanamongeau) May 30, 2019
First, let’s take a moment to admire that BOTH of them have currently changed their Twitter names to promo for their new songs. It’s really a beautiful symbol of the what the internet is like in 2019. I don’t really have much to say about Tana’s message, because it really adds nothing to the conversation here. If anything, if she really was legit heartbroken over this, couldn’t she have texted/called/written a letter to Bella and/or Mod privately? Maybe she’s blocked, but it doesn’t seem like she’s really trying to calm things down.
This feud is the only thing getting me through today, so I’ll be eagerly waiting for more shady tweets from Bella Thorne and/or Mod Sun and/or Tana Mongeau. I live for these creatures of the internet, and they’ll really never stop being messy. God bless.
