Selena's adorable 15-year-old voice continued to play out in the video: "I wanted to add something different, especially for the Teen Vogue party!"

Lizzo channelled her inner 'Rare' songstress as she lip-synced to the viral clip, she captioned the post: "Milan y’all ready?"

Fans instantly leapt to the comment section to gush over the merging of their two favourite worlds, with one writing "iconic" and another posting "SO REAL".

But it wasn't just fans that loved the moment of appreciation from Lizzo to her fellow pop star, Selena herself caught wind of the video and even came out of her social media hiatus to acknowledge the TikTok.

The Only Murders in the Building actress gave an understated nod to Lizzo as she left a simple blue heart in the comments, and the 'Juice' singer quickly replied with a kiss face emoji.

Selena's reemergence on the app comes a week after she told fans that she was taking a break from posting, on a TikTok Live she said: "I'm going to be taking a second from social media because this is a little silly. I'm 30 and am too old for this.

"But I love you so much and I'll see you guys sooner than later. I'm just gonna take a break from everything," she candidly told her followers.
